    Those who know me also know my obsession with the .38 Super cartridge.

    Some of you may remember this 1 of 1 Super Valkyrie that Keith and Co. did for me last year. Great gun, totally happy with it.

    Only problem is that project came about because Keith said they couldn't build me a Super ECO based off a 9mm ECO because they did not have the proper tooling.

    Couple pics of the Super Valkyrie........

    I am not exactly known for being someone who will take no for an answer and went about finding out if a Super ECO can be done with the proper connections along with the crazy brained, think outside the box mindset like I have and thus an Officer sized .38 Super was set in motion.

    After finding the right gunsmith willing to do the job, and that gunsmith having connections to a certain barrel maker who said they will give it a shot, a deal was struck and off we went.

    So without further adieu, may I present what I believe is the only .38 Super ECO in existence...............

    Hells no!

    That thing is dead nuts accurate, shoots flat as can be and has basically no recoil. That one ain't leaving the stable. :cool:

    Both of those are just stunning.

    I'm thinking I really NEED a .38 Super!

    Thanks for all the comments folks. These are both keepers.

    I was a strict .45 guy for many, many years and between interest and injuries I tried out a Super a few years ago. I am SO glad I did. Absolutely love the ballistics, lack of recoil, and flat shooting little Super.

    Try it out, you'll be happy you did!

    Amen Brother!

    It's funny how I have more than a few full custom's, and this ECO just makes me smile. Comparing to the Hot Rod world, this little gun is the perfect sleeper. No one would ever know unless reading the barrel stamp. :cool:
