    I'm curious, what are the differences between a Ljutic and a Silver Seitz.

    I don't know anyone that has a Seitz so I thought I'd ask.

    thanks

    Bob

    I have both, they swing very much the same. recoil is similar but i think my ljutic is somewhat lighter recoiling.. fit and finish on both guns is excellent but the edge goes to the seitz. i like the rib on the seitz better than the ljutic. the seitz has a sighting grove that i really like. you have to snap close the seitz or it will pop open which i don't like. The big advantage to the ljutic is that for 3-4 thousand you can get into a good used ljutic, a good used seitz will cost twice that. the sietz will need service about every 4 years the ljutic maybe 20. hope that helps doc.

    Thanks for the information. I've been debating between the two but to start out I think I'll trade my nice KS5 Special for a used Ljutic and see how it goes.

    I think I like the feel of the Ljutic better than the KS5. Might be just time to change. My main gun is a S04 34 unsingle.

    A few thousand $$$ and the forearms don't generally fall off of Ljutic's. Seitz's are very easy on the eyes though.

    Had four or five LJutic guns new and used now Silver Seitz . Been shooting Seitz for seven years never had a forearm fall off or anything at all .

    I don,t believe the newer LJutics are as well made as the older ones .

    IMO, I fail to see any advantage going from Ljutic to Seitz. Not to mention the extra cost.

    Never owned a Seitz but, have owned three Ljutics. Was sad when I sold my first Ljutic but, even happier when I got it back. I now own two Ljutics, great guns.

    Some misinformation here.

    They aren't that comparable. Both are top choices in reliability. Triggers are very different, one, a firing pin/plunger type, the other, a traditional pivoting hammer type striking a firing pin.

    Neither are great at holding their values. Both are fabulous shooters if they can be made to fit you. I put them in the same league when you take the time to have the Ljutic "custom fitted."

    What has hurt both guns is too much competition. One has competition and imitation problems. The rest is the economy.

    They're both race cars.
