I’d like to sell my old .45acp Ballester Molina. Shoots great, all matching with a beautiful patina. I don’t know much about the history surrounding this particular firearm, but if you’d like more photos or have any questions let me know and I’ll try my best to answer them...
I know this is a stretch, but figured it was worth a shot.
Do any of you have an old 1911 take-off barrel in your parts bin from a Ballester Molina with the marking seen below?
If you do, drop me a note and let me know. I would love to pick up one, maybe two. Must be willing to ship...
