I was at Gander Mtn today and saw a used ERMA .22 on the shelf for $219. It looks and functions like a Luger but I've never heard of ERMA (it said made in Germany) and the price scares me a bit. I have to wonder why someone turned it in.
I'm going back tomorrow to buy a 9mm Baby Eagle so if I can get a good look at it if it is worth considering. Any input?
I bought a MK II for less than this much so the ERMA would be more of a novelty for me. I'd use it of course, but I don't want to throw my money away. I think I'll most likely pass unless someone has a good reason for me to buy it.
And I greatly appreciate that. This is why I ask such questions here.
If you said it had a great reputation and would likely be very reliable I'd probably jump on it at that price. Since it isn't worth the possible headache I'll spend my money on ammo or a better gun instead. I'm a big believer in getting what you pay for but I have had some great luck in the past.
