The Lorcin Model L380 semi-auto pistol in .380 ACP. Serial number- 424739. Lorcin Engineering Company was a firearms manufacturer established in 1989 by Jim Waldorf. Lorcin produced a series of very inexpensive handguns, which were sold primarily through pawnshops and marketed to people with low income and found mostly in Baltimore City, MD. Their guns were frequently referred to as Saturday night specials, and Lorcin was noted by the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives as one of the Ring of Fire companies, a series of companies established around Los Angeles, California that manufactured inexpensive handguns of similar design and all of which were connected to Raven Arms. Waldorf was a high school friend of Bruce Jennings, founder of Jennings Firearms. The guns were constructed of injection-molded Zamak, a zinc alloy.
