I will soon be purchasing a few blank pistols for our training group and need to find a good lower priced gun. Main reason for not wanting to buy top of line is the fear they may get lost( parts or hole) or disappear. My training partners and myself all have the better guns, and I am at a point where I don't like asking them to lend their guns out because it is getting harder to find the good ones.Any recommendations would be appreciated.

The lower priced ones<$100 break at 6-12 months. I have had two break on me. MY next will be the NEF $180 one. We need equipment that lasts!

NEF has been sold to Remington Arms. Remington Arms has decided to discontinue the starter pistol line and will not long produce them. I think right now the Alpha is about the best you can get. They are $189 for either .22, .32 or the shotgun primer model's. I have the shotgun primer model myself and I really like it. The only thing is its a little larger then the NEF or the old H&R blank pistols.

I agree the - $100 pistols don't hold up very well.

One of the vendors at the test in Thomaston, GA this weekend had the Alpha for $160.00. I think some folks are discounting them a little.

I will have to take a look at those at gunxusa.com

I purchased a Kimar that is a few months old and about 200 shots through it and it is falling apart. I guess I will send it in for repair and hope it last a bit longer.

A guy from my office gave me a German made .22 short pistol I've been using it for a couple of weeks and it's perfect. Very small and tight hope it works for years to come. One of the reviews I found said it wouldn't hit a plate at 10 feet, but for a blank gun it's great.

You might try a couple of pawn shops or gunbroker.com
