I've been looking for a Warthog but they seemingly don't exist...not locally anyway.

Has anyone seen one in a gun shop? Para still advertises them...a good feeling little guy...but not available?

Supposedly Bud's Gun Shop has some. They're "used" and are advertised for $450. I've never done business with Bud's but have not heard anything negative about them.

Welp, 5 months late to the party, but, I recently found a used Warthog here locally for $300.00. Keep looking, they are out there.
Mine had been thru several owners, each had added/.replaced parts:
beaver tail grip safety, flat adj. trigger, bobbed hammer, Novac style sights, extended slide stop/safety, Etc.

The slide had some holster wear and light pitting, so it was bead blasted and black parkerized. Now it's a pleasant blue/black with S/S accents.

The story I got was that she was a jam-o-matic for the last 3 owners, hence all the parts changing and so forth. (helped me beat the price down)

The first range day she was indeed a Jammer, FTE, FTLoad, smoke stacking and hammer following/sear bounce. All with 230 Gr hardball.

I reshaped the hammer hooks and sear contact angle, tuned the main and trigger springs, replaced the recoil spring, ( I never could find a factory spring so I cut down a piece of 28 pound full length spring until the performance improved)

Now the old girl eats anything, but really likes my pet bowling pin load with 185 Gr. JHP. (fast, low recoil, reliable cycling)

It's summer now here in SW Floriduh, so my EDC is a Kel-Tec PF-9. When the heat breaks, (another month or so) the 'hog will go into EDC rotation.
Given the political situation, I much prefer to be over gunned, than under gunned.

Keep looking, there is one out there with your name on it...
