Up for sale is a Republic Arms 9mm compact - the RAP 401. This is a quality South African pistol that is essentially a clone of an Astra 75 except with better safety and sights. I bought this gun almost ten years ago, and put 300 rounds down the pipe. It was my bedside gun for years.

It's an awesome little gun, all metal and really well built. It comes with two 8 round 9mm mags, no box or manuals although I have posted a link to a .dpf manual.

The gun has never had a FTF and is in perfect condition except for two items:

1. Bluing on the right side of the slide at the tip is missing, and can easily be reblued. This was from sitting in a holster too long. A little moisture must've got in there.

2. Guide rod has a slight divot out of it at the very end. This does not impede the function of the gun at all, and is also cosmetic. It actually came like this and I never bothered to return it as it does not pose a problem.

Asking $315 OBO - I will drive anywhere reasonable in Socal or ship on YOUR dime.
