The P226-9-NAVY is produced to the exact specifications of the pistols supplied to Navy SEALs including special corrosion-resistant finish on internal parts, contrast sights, slides engraved with an anchor to designate them as Naval Special Warfare pistols and a certificate of authenticity. For commercial sales the pistol comes with two 10-round magazines. These limited production P226-9-Navy pistols will also carry a special unique ?NSW? serial number starting with NSW0001.

I picked this one up in a situation that I was in the right place at the right time and got a fantastic deal on it. This is the best shooting 9mm I have owned and the finish is superb.



It is a registered version with no rail and of the limited run meant for the Navy but never issued to them and was sold to specific dealers for public consumption.

So show me what you have and remember it does not have to be the most expensive but the one you value the most.
Come on now, lets get things rolling.

I have quite a few handguns but this one is earmarked to be handed down to one of my Grandsons with the proviso that it never leaves the family.

The diamond plate look is pretty kool.
I bet in person it looks like it would actually have the texture.

Sorry, don't have any current pics of mine, this one will have to do.

My ugly beauty, the Hi-Point...except mine is in .40S&W

It's ugly, it looks like it has a drill battery when the mag is inserted, but I haven't had a single jam with 500rds so far. It was affordable when I needed a firearm for HD, and continues to do it's job now that I have money for a better firearm.

Only thing I could complain about it is the fact that if you want to do a complete takedown, you require a punch.

They are ugly, I have one in 9mm.....however the Russian T34 tank was ugly and rough edged and it was tough and could dish out a lot of hurt, so there is a certain charm to Big and ugly and heavy and a lot of women are like that but they sure are fun to snuggle up to on a cold winters night.

As for big and ugly in a gun, I quote the movie snatch: "It's heavy, so if it breaks, you can always club the guy with it."

As for big women, there's a phrase I tell my friends: "they're like mopeds... fun to ride till your friends catch you on one." :mrgreen:

well, schultz, i'll see your pt1911 and raise you s/s, a fobus holster, and a CMC mag. this is one of my "marine" setups that i carry when it's raining, which seems to be quite often around here for the past year. i've got a set of BHW panels for this, currently residing in a ziploc bag with a desiccant





ain't she purty?

Back when I was a young guy stainless 1911s had a problem with galling and you had to use special lube on the rails.
How did they resolve that?

galling? please sir, enlighten me.
a quick and dirty explanation is when 2 mating parts of the same or very similar material tend to cold weld or adhere in very close fits

EDIT: was running out the door, didn't get to finish. i've seen this happen with soft s/s parts in weld fixtures, especially threaded parts. i've only been a 1911 guy for a couple of years, so i'm not familiar with galling problems in older models. hell i didn't own any handguns but revolvers before 2002
