The Unique pistols were mostly made for the French Olympic teams and were well balanced and accurate. The trigger has multiple adjustments and is on par with the trigger in a Model 41.  It should have barrel weights included, but often are missing.  I had an opportunity to buy on of these pistols, complete with barrel weights, cleaning kit, and two five round magazines a couple years ago but passed because parts and additional magazines were difficult to find. I don't recall that it was drilled and tapped for a dot mount, but it did have good iron sights.  An interesting pistol, but even at $250 there are other things I would spend my money on.

A few shooters in my area use them. TradeEx (a local dealer) has some for sale regularly. He sells them between $500 and $700 CAD depending on condition. Other shooters have had theirs for longer than I've been alive and are happy with them. The rear sight configuration is quite Unique.

If I recall correctly, it has a mechanism for dry-firing. A large pin comes out of the rear sight to block the hammer from hitting the pin. But don't quote me here, I may be confusing it with another design.

A great find at $250.

The Unique does have a dry fire system.

Nice pistols. I've worked on a few and have shot matches with loaners. Accurate pistols. Can be nose heavy depending on the barrel weight. Hard to mount a scope on it.

These are super accurate with WOLF/SK ammo.

Heck for 250 bucks I would buy it in a heart beat unless it took food off the table for my kids.  You can't buy pistol of that quality for less than a 1000 dollars.

I think 69 and HS have different barrel diameters so the LSP mount shouldn't work.

I can remember two USAR shooters each shooting 890's with DES 69 pistols. Once you get it setup to your liking it can perform with the best of them. I personally would buy one if right price came along.

I've known a couple guys with them.  They both had them for years and were pretty set in their minds to keep them.  I don't recall them ever malfunctioning.
Apparently, there is a guy in France who has a huge stockpile of spare parts.  The topic came up on targettalk.org some years ago.  I seem to remember that a website link or email was provided.  

$250 would be a real great deal for one!
