CDI...Gary Cole

Tell ya what, I contacted CDI to look for a FN High Power, and not having a ton of knowlege on them I was pleasently surprised..Dealt with a super nice girl on the phone who took all my info(Good Lord beautiful Southern Kentucky accent)lol....anyway, i ditn get her name but she was great to deal with and even called Gary to tell him what i was looking for...Well, Gary called me back and we actually discussed what i was looking for and he was kind enough to explain stuff and walk me thru it..What a great guy. My pistol arrived in 2 days and let me tell you, I COULDNT BE HAPPIER...Better than expected and I was thrilled..So big plus for CDI and Gary Cole and I will for sure be ordering from them again..Great service goes a long way with me..

Bought a Kareen HP from him over GB a few months ago. Came in better than described. Did have an issue with the sear not engaging the safety. Had me send it back to him on his dime and gave me an extra mag. Top notch vendor!

I agree. I bought one of his ex-Israeli HPs a couple weeks back. It was advertised as in excellent shape and with an excellent bore. He wasn't kidding. A buddy could hardly believe it was a used gun, saying he had bought brand-new pistols that looked worse. The service was great too, and I guess I spoke with the same young lady when I called to arrange payment. I'll try to post some pics before long.

I will be removing the magazine safety however. The trigger is just gritty as hell with that in it. Although the GunBroker ads say they ship with a 10 round mag, mine came in with a new Mec-Gar 13 rounder.

I bought a very nice FEG Hi-Power from him some months back via GB. I recently was telling someone else that they should look at Gary for a nice Hi Power but it seems as if his site is down. Going to http://www.coledist.com/ gives an Invalid Hostname error and I haven't had any luck seeing him on GB ( he did business there as C.D.I IIRC. Does anyone have info on whether or not he is still around?

Thanks,
Tony

He's still on Gunbroker. I just won an auction for an HP.

http://www.gunbroker.com/All/BI.aspx...ellers=2621012

That link SHOULD take you to his vendor page on GunBroker.

Some do; some don't. This is more than worth the 99 and the fastest way to do your research:
