Here is a unique one.
This here is a Ballester-Molina, made by Hafdasa in Argentina from 1938-1950.
$400 + shipping if needed
Almost a near copy of a standard 1911. The main difference though is there is no grip safety.
Has a lanyard loop at the grip base, and accepts standard 45 ACP 1911...
C&R - Argentine Ballester Rigaud (Molina) - .45 ACP pistol. And marked for the Policía Marítima.
The Ballester–Molina is a pistol designed and built by the Argentine company Hispano Argentina Fábrica de Automóviles SA (HAFDASA). From 1938 to 1940 it bore the name Ballester–Rigaud.
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...
