    Interesting Piece. Looks like a cross between a Seecamp and a NAA Guardian.

    Besides the price, what is the real advantage?

    It's dimensions make it smaller than the Guardian and just a tad larger than the Seecamp. Weight is comparable to the Seecamp, as well. MSRP, along with CNC construction is a real attention grabber.

    Wonder if reliability has been established..?

    They had a Buy button, which, when clicked takes you to a guns America link page, which lists sellers and their price, and how far they are from you.
    380 ACP Subcompact Semi-Auto Pistol - MPA380B

    Very intriguing.
    I also wonder about the reliability.
    Seems at that price, if reliability is very good, they might shut K-tec, seecamp naa and the rest out of the pocket pistol business.

    The Micro Desert Eagle may be an alternative you could consider. I've never seen or held one, but it seems to follow a similar philosophy to the MPA above.

    Actually, is that an external trigger bar? The MDE and the MPA 380 might actually be pretty much the same gun, albeit with a different design. I believe both borrow from a Czech gun (Kevin? I can't remember).

    Interesting, but it's a 5+1 capacity. The usual suspects it competes with are 6+1.
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    Just a helpful hint.

    If you're ever buying a semi-auto that might be the greatest thing since Frozen Toast - but, if it's not a wildly prolific or common firearm - buy all your spare magazines and a spare parts kit - right when you first purchase the gun.
    You might not be able to find magazines or parts later on down the road.

    This one is obviously a very high quality firearm. The price is actually very fair for the entire firearm being CNC milled from from steel & no cast or MIM parts.

    I also liked their side cocker .22 LR pistol with the 30 round magazines.

    Great idea, if I like the MPA 380 when I get my hands one I will order another and spare parts.

    I just looked at the sellers and lo and behold I actually deliver to one of the sellers in Ky. I will have to see if he has one in stock.
