Blowout Prices! Hudson Pistols Now On Sale For $599

by Pete

The TFB team has spent the last hour mulling over this blowout deal – Hudson Pistols are now on sale for $599 at GrabAGun. com. Before we go any further, I want to make it perfectly clear that this is not an advertisement; I received this email blast just like thousands of other shooters across the U.S. And if I had to guess, most of you reading the announcement had similar ‘roller coaster’ type feelings that we did. “This is a great deal! But Hudson just filled for bankruptcy!”

Let’s pretend you always wanted an H-9 for its features, but couldn’t stomach the original $1100+ price tag. In that case, this may be an opportunity to own a unique gun you always wanted. Keep in mind that replacement parts, magazines, holsters and a plethora of other potential trap doors await you.

On the other hand, if you are looking to invest in a rare collectible firearm, the decision tree on whether or not to purchase one of these Hudson pistols gets murky. How many guns were made in total? Will they be coveted as rare in the future? How many years to do have to wait to see a potential increase in value? Is there a chance that Hudson makes a return, the intellectual property and name owned by a new outfit?

For $599, I, like other members of the TFB staff, have my fingers perched over the ‘Add To Cart’ button. And I still can’t figure out why. I guess it’s a rare occurrence that we get to witness a drawn-out breakup of a hopeful young startup company unfold so publicly. And like vultures we sit, eyeing the last remaining pieces of meat.

Where do you stand? Details below.

    My 600$ gun arrived today (well, 650$...freakin' taxes). Came with all three mags despite the advertisement saying one, and seems very nice. The gun comes inside at least 100$ worth of ridiculously opulent packaging, btw. And, despite beautiful exterior machining & contours, attractive grips, Trijicon sights, excellent finishing...of all places they cheaped out on the trigger parts! Plain, rather rough-blasted dull black finish (which you can feel scraping in the the trigger safety), rather loose rattley safety & trigger shoe parts, no serrations or other interesting features, and MIM ejector pin marks visible on the side. More than a little off-putting the first time you go to dry fire it. Now, once you get past that, the striker was quite good (though still awful by hammer FCG standards, once again prompting me to ask "what'd they do this for, again?") and at least so far, all the mag/slide catches & controls seem to work correctly, and the barrel has what I'd call a normal-seeming amount of play at full-lockup. Test fire will tell the tale, but I'm pleasantly surprised by a gun I had considered a steal, but really didn't care for much at all.

    Does anyone know what percentage of these guns didn't work? I can buy a new one with a low 2000 serial number (not that that matters) for $500. When it doesn't work I'll realize how stupid it was, but if it works, or parts keep it going, it should be interesting.

    Is it possible there are a great percentage of these that always worked?

      @Mike I don't think even Hudson really knows what the percentage of problematic guns is, but it is substantial judging by anecdotes from H9 owners that know other owners.
