    Is that it in your avatar?

    If you could post a larger pic, I'm sure that plenty of folks here would enjoy salivating over it, er...I mean, uh, viewing it.

    Dude, are you SERIOUS? That is so clearly a 1911 in his avatar. One of the most recognizable guns in the world. Are you sure you own guns?

    Edit: to add more incredulity.

    Yes, I was serious...but now that you've pointed out my folly, guess I'll laugh at my ignorance and move on.

    Looks to be in good shape! I'd say $250 is more than a fair price. Congrats!

    i sure did. 99% of the SB compact models were 8 round single stacks. i luckily got the elusive and rare 13 round double stack model. came with ultra rare SB wood panel grips too!

    Where'd you find that number?

    Where'd you hear that 99% of them were single stack models? Most I've seen on the web were double stack models.

    From Wikipedia.
    92SB (92S-1)

    The extremely rare 92SB, Initially called the 92S-1, was specifically designed for the USAF (US Air Force) trials (which it won), the model name officially adopted was the 92SB. It included the changes of the 92S, added a firing pin block (thus the addition of the "B" to the name), and relocated the magazine release catch from the bottom of the grip to the lower bottom of the trigger guard.

    • 92SB Compact (19811991), shortened barrel and slide (13-round magazine capacity). It was replaced by the "92 Compact L".
    Compact Type M(1992)Similar to the Compact L, but has a slimmer grip that accepts only a single stacked 8-round magazine.
