If I understand U right - you do know a Five Seven isn't striker fired, right? There is actually a hammer in the frame that is concealed inside of the slide.Orbital said:Shipwreck, I know everyone has opinions, here's mine about DAO, DA, SA, etc...
There really should be a third class of firing operation, "striker fired"
Such as, glocks, fivesevens.....
That's because people are willing to pay that much for it!!! :lol:TexasRifleman said:There's a pretty good price premium on the IOM models, what's the big deal other than you can't buy them anymore?
They actually worth that much more cash?

If thats "all" it comes with, sounds like you are missing:
1 IOM user manual
1 FNH letter
1 ATF letter
2 10 round magazines
1 FNH lock
1 Test Fired Shell
1 Cleaning Kit
1 Sight adjustment tool
If its missing all of those then I wouldn't pay 1K for it because then you are just paying 1K for a used IOM missing all its original goodies.
If it wasn't an IOM, would you pay $1K for any used handgun that didn't come with all its original stuff?
For $1,100-$1200, you can find a pretty good IOM with all of its original goodies.
Think of it like the difference between a car with all "matching numbers" and one that is just "restored". There's a value difference there.
