New to me Lorcin L380

Postby adam01364 » Fri Apr 21, 2017 4:06 pm

I stopped in at a LGS that's known to be inhabited by gun snobs, and much to my surprise I spotted a Lorcin L380 with an extra mag sitting under glass. It had an inventory tag on it - but no price.

I proceeded to express incredulity that they had a Lorcin for sale, and that it probably had infected all the other guns next to it in the case -Sigs, and S&Ws) with Lorcin-i-tus. We all had a good laugh about it, and the guy handed it over for me to have a look at it. Actually it's in remarkably good condition, better than the other Lorcins in my collection, looks like it's barely been shot.

Then the guy told me he paid all of $25 for it, looked me in the eye and told me I could have it for $40 out the door. Damn, at that price I bit, hook, line, and sinker.

I'd prolly be broke if I lived in a free state, LOL Or, I'd have to be a whole lot more picky.
i't's just being in the right place at the right time, and having a good rapport with the LGS.

I probably would have snagged it too, for that price. Congrats.

I bought one years ago (like 5 or more years ago) from a guy who was bringing a bunch of guns into a gun shop to sell. I happened to be in the shop at the same time. The people working at the gun shop didn't want his Lorcin but they wound up buying his other guns. I bought the Lorcin. Private sales are legal here in Virginia between two residents of the same state so we were all good. I wound up selling it later at a gun show. I think I paid $60 with no magazine for mine, you got a better deal.
