My Impressions in no particular order:
Looks like a homemade gun. Started with a Caspian frame, maybe a matched slide and frame. Appears to have used good parts though. Looks like a Wilson Combat trigger. Outside looks good but I wonder what the finish is??? Is it finished at all? Looks like it is still in the white (bare metal) 10mm + 3-1/2 barrel. That thing is going to be a bitch to get timed right. Standard safety instead of a beavertail? WTF? Guy must be into pain or have the grip of Samson. Why so cheap? Guy must have more than his price in parts alone. Where did he get a barrel? Either he got a 4" barrel and chopped it, or he bought a .40 barrel and cut the chamber deeper. (That's what I would)
Maybe the guy got scared off by the cost of ammo, the recoil, or couldn't get it timed. All in all - a beast of pistol at a good price. Buy it with the understanding it's probably going to be a fixer-upper. Also buy 10mm dies. Load some light loads and some round nose and work the kinks out if.
