Mechanics: The action functions correctly. The slide has no play to the frame. The lockup in battery is quite tight but slides smoothly once the slide has been moved to the rear a little.

As with all used firearms, a thorough cleaning may be necessary to meet your maintenance requirements.

Our Assessment: From Les Baer’s website: “Like our two popular Stinger models, this Stinger was designed as an efficient concealed carry pistol. The compact size features a Commanche top end and a shorter grip frame — similar to an Officer’s model. But it’s built for the super accurate, high velocity .38 Super round or popular 9mm. It’s a perfect combination for backup or home defense.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. This .38 Super Stinger comes with its original box in Excellent condition and is sure to take a prized place in the collection of a Les Baer, .38 Super or 1911 fan. Please see our photos and good luck!
