More correctly it is a striker fired, external extractor, palm grip safetied, 9mm, pistol with a doohickey rail and a trigger safety.


THIS is a 1911.

Now THAT is ugly JTW. Just out of curiosity, other than the "1911 trigger" what other part of this gun even resembles a 1911?

Weaponsman has a good write-up on it. The recoil reduction aspects are interesting.

Your title is misleading. I see the "1911 style" trigger, I also see a picture of a 1911 with the words "motivated by the past" and the words "1911 purists". Then you have this on the information page. Why can’t someone combine striker fired reliability with a 1911 trigger?”

Some reviewers purported it to be a striker fired 1911 but nowhere in there is the company claiming it to be a "striker fired 1911"

But...that is one ugly gun that looks more like a Hi-Point that lost some weight.

I remember in 1986, when I walked into my Remo gun dealer's shop, and he set one of the first 200 Glock 17's imported into the country in front of me. I picked it up and said "But it's plastic and UGLY!"

Ho told me to fill out the 4473, take the gun for the day, and shoot it all I want. If I didn't like it, no charge. I returned it after shooting a 1,000 rounds of JHP ammo through it without a stoppage of any kind. I handed him a check for the grand total of $286.00. 50,000 + rounds later, I still have that Glock 17.

I guess what I'm saying is wait and see, it will either be a keeper or a crapper? I just won't poo-poo it until I see/shoot one. It may not be for everyone, but I'm sure someone will love it!

Like GH said if it prooves itself to be reliable and no issues from the gate that is what people want. Yes, it is ugly but I have carried a Glock for 30 years so I can't bitch about that. Lol.

Its 34oz unloaded then add in 15 rounds of 9mm. That is going to be a tank.
