Has anyone bought the display model
I went to my Local Gun Store today looking to get another MK25! The only one they had left was the display model in the case that everyone in the world who wants to check out the MK25 has handled. Has anyone else bought the display model, and if so was did it cause them any issues?

My P320 and G23 Gen4 were both display models. Both have been perfect.
The 320 was the color I wanted (FDE) and the G23's trigger was stellar when dry firing, so I scooped them up despite the clerk in both cases offering me untouched models.
I figure, if the model you fondle feels and looks good, why mess with it.

I personally believe that Cabelas Gun Library is full of display models. The M11-A1 I bought there was like new in the box. (I think it was). Nothing wrong with display models as long as they are not all dinged up. Heck, ask if they will give you a discount because it is a display model? Never hurts.

Nope. If I am paying new price I want brand new that no one else has touched. Not saying their will be a problem but have seen too many idiots playing with display models. A favorite of them seems to be repeatedly letting the slide slam shut by simply releasing the slide stop. Wearing big rings when handling firearms I see a lot too.

It depends on the gun and the store. Big box store - no. My small LGS - sure. If I plan on really using this gun then it doesn't matter as much. For more collectible and safe queen firearms, I prefer NIB and untouched. I hate it when I order something special and when I come to pick it up, the employees are pretty much twirling it behind the counter . And then while I'm there some random customer always want to see it and rack the slide and dry fire it before I've even got a chance to hold it. It has happened before with the some of the more nicer additions to my collection. If only there was an easy way to get the gun straight from the factory floor directly into my hands without anyone touching it besides me and the people who built it. Although this would be only something I care about for my high end purchases.

When I shopped my favorite LGS they had one P227 SAS gen2. Scooped it up in a heartbeat with a fair price. No problems of any kind with it. After an inspection and cleaning it has become a favorite. It will be carried often. No qualms buying from my LGS. As stated above, from a big box store, maybe not.

Reasonable compromise. Buy from local LGS. Avoid display models from big box.

You could talk them down on a dent and ding display model. This past Saturday while waiting at my LGS to get night sights installed on my Bersa,I browsed at all the display(drooled)models and stumbled upon an new Hungarian FEG 1911 for under $400. The salesman told me that it was the same type pistol the the Hungarian military used before they adopted some other type sidearm. Nice looking gun with a Nice finish but had a slight slide to frame rattle when shooked. I declined buying it on account it had a scratch all the way down to bare metal on the rear frame grip. Plus I didn't k,ow anything about this gun. Oh well
Always hold out for something better.
