    There was a pistol I've seen a while back, and now am kind of curious about getting it but I don't remember what it was called. Hoping someone here knows what I am talking about. Here's the details to the best of my recollection:

    It is chambered for .22lr, I believe it is no longer made and may have been imported from Europe. It is pocket-sized and its appearance is clearly styled after the 1911, however it has a DA/SA trigger. Basically, like an Iver Johnson TP-22 except looks like a 1911 and not a PPK. Anyone?

    Closest thing I can think of is a Colt Mustang in .380 or the new Sig P238 (basically the same gun). Pretty sure they were SAO however.

    Possibly a Colt Junior in .25 cal?

    Nah my girl has a P238, and it's indeed got an SA trigger. The gun I saw was definitely a .22lr and not from as well-known a manufacturer as Colt.

    Could it be one of the Llama pistols?

    da/sa .22lr? Could it possibly be a beretta? Not really 1911-ish though...

    Quite sure it wasn't a Llama, those are small, but the gun I'm thinking of was of pocket proportions, probably about the same size as a Kel-Tec P-32/3AT, plus as far as I know, the 1911-esque Llamas still had SA triggers.

    Not the Beretta either, I've actually had a Beretta Bobcat.

    American arms pk-22 imported from Spain according to book but actually from Germany (double action).
