This is my Jericho 941 in 9mm, Double Action Only. As you can see, there is no frame- or slide-mounted safety, and the hammer has no spur. Before I found this gun, I didn't even know DAO Jerichos existed.

The grips are aftermarket. I wanted to keep the original IMI grips safely put away.

Very nice. Are those grips custom made or did they come from the guy off Ebay (in Thailand I think)?

Two new members recently brought the Century imported Jericho to light. Prior to you guys I had no idea they ever imported it. Do you guys have more info, the year they were produced, models offered, etc?

These grips are from the guy in Thailand. They didn't fit perfectly, so I had to shim them from the inside so they'd stop rocking about. Part of the right grip panel has chipped off already, actually.

I have next to no info at all about Century-imported Jerichos, unfortunately.

Same with me. Mine looked like it had some serious use. It is a polymer 941FSL. I can ask email the dealer I bought it from since he has sold other surplus Jerichos in the past and is in general a treasure trove of information on firearms.

Just got a reply back from him
Sure, not a big long story but here it is:

Basically both guns were 1-off deals. Century bought a lot of 9mm handguns from Israel last year.
Same place and shipment my Walther P88 came in on.

You guys have the only 2 they imported, aside from a couple that were missing mags and maybe a couple other small parts.

Thats pretty awesome, the two tone being one out of 70 or something, now these two being the only two of their kind. very nice.

I love the pistol. My son has the .45 ACP variant. However the extractor claw broke off this weekend,(about 500 rounds) and we cannot find a supplier that stocks parts here in Northern Virginia. Can you tell us where we could find this? Can the extractor from an EAA copy be used. Any gunsmith worth his salt should be able to punch the pin out and re-install a claw so long as it is the proper size. Of real concern is "Why did it break?".



Thanks

Only place with a stock of Jericho parts is e-gunparts.com, and it appears they only have the extractor for 9/40 in stock. I'm not sure about the EAA extractor being interchangeable, but check http://www.henningshootsguns.com/shop/upperparts.html, they have one for 45 listed and the guy is pretty knowledgeable, he might be able to let you know if it would work.
