    one of the original wonder nines, my Star 30MI. It came to the US after serving as a police pistol somewhere in the middle east. Probably one of the best that Star ever made.

    It has one of the nicest single/double action triggers I've come across. It looks like it was dragged behind a truck, and as reliable and accurate as any of my CZ's. It cost me a $190 out the door. Magazines are hard to find, but S&W 59 magazines are easy to modify by lengthening the notch a little bit around to the front.

    I picked up a Russian Nagant revolver from a friend of mine years ago. I can’t recall the last time I fired this darn thing. 7.62X38R ammo is very difficult to find. Google a Russian Nagant and you’ll see what it looks like.

    I have a few but never considered them "oddball brands" so not sure they qualify.

    A couple are my Striker Fired contribution; the Savage 1907 that was made in 1913 ...



    ... and my Ortgies.



    The Savage was the first dual stack semi-automatic pistol and the HiCap of its day. The magazine held ten 32acp rounds plus one in the chamber. The Ortgies is unusual because the grip safety once depressed to the firing position stays in "Fire" mode until you press a button to return to "Safe".

    "Fire"


    "Safe"


    Some others might include my Walther Model 4; one of the few handguns that actually has its ejection port on the "Port Side" ...



    ... and my Bernardelli Model 60; a company better known for its shotguns.


    The next handgun I buy will be the next to last handgun I ever buy!

    ^^ That last one looks like my CZ83 in .380 Auto...another of my smiley face guns!

    The Bernardelli is Single Action though. Meant to be carried Cocked & Locked but the safety is the lever right behind the trigger and so easy to manipulate even when in presentation.

    My CZ-50 is likely closer to your 83.

    I keep wrestling with getting a .32 ACP...I see the surplus CZ's every now and again for 200.00 +/-. Resisting having to set up for another caliber.
