From what I heard they didn't last long in business but the guns were good quality. That's as much as I know about them.

Randall Firearms Company of Sun Valley, California. Randall pistols were manufactured from June 7, 1983 to May 15, 1985. They were pioneers in the manufacture of all Stainless Steel and true left handed guns. They made just under 10,000 pistols in both 9mm and .45 in both full and commander size guns. Many people consider all Randalls collectible guns.

I know there are 18 Randall's listed for auction on GunBroker and the lowest price is $1,500.
Don't know what they are really selling for but the asking prices are up there.

Looks like the Service Model A131 with Millet Model 100 Gold Cup Style adjustable rear sight.

I don't think the double diamond grips are original and am 99.9% sure the grips screws are not correct.

Not a deal breaker just an FYI.

If the price was decent I would have bought it, everything I've heard and read about them was more then positive.
