Overall, this handgun rates in about Very Good-Fine condition.
Mechanics: The action functions correctly. The double-action trigger is smooth, the single-action has a smooth takeup followed by a crisp break. We did not fire this handgun. As with all used firearms, a thorough cleaning may be necessary to meet your maintenance standards.
Box, Paperwork & Accessories: This pistol comes with one 16-round magazine. The mag has some light wear and rates in Fine Plus condition. Please note, no magazines will be included for buyers who reside where they cannot be legally transferred.
Our Assessment: Imported for only three years, this Jericho 941 is an Israeli made pistol based loosely on the CZ-75 with the same slide-in design which reduced reciprocating mass and allows for a lower bore-axis. This one will be a joy to shoot with its all steel construction which will really soak up the recoil of the already easily managed 9mm Luger. This one has some wear but none that will hinder your ability to enjoy a day out at the range or defend yourself. Please see our pictures and good luck!
