    I sure wish somebody would start making this again or a redesigned version the same size.
    Possibly Rohrbaugh could design one?
    This WAS the Downsizer WSP.

    And YES...it is a .45acp caliber.

    You can FORGET trying to find one anywhere.
    There are just none of them around.
    There never were that many made in the first place.

    It has got to be a very simple trigger mechanism.

    Every once in a great while they seem to pop up on gunbroker, also saw one once at a gun show.
    As bad a shape as it was in (or appeared to be in), probably would've exploded in your hand if you pulled the trigger
    (and the guy selling it still wanted an arm n leg for it)

    It wouldn't take a lot of machine skill to build a similar ( to stay out of patent problems ) pistol . I suspect for the price they sell for one could buy one of the mini mills and a mini lathe with all the tooling he would need lol .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .

    Phone number is listed, perhaps he still has a few or can "fire" one up?

    I read that the guy that was building them. The inventor (I guess) got himself into some hot water. Then I think some folks got ripped off. (Not sure about that)
    Yep, I,ve been searching to find some photos of one disassembled.

    The Semmerling LM4 was another great little mini and it's still being made but, The price tag....is through the roof. I should have bought one when I had the chance.

    There are 2 for sale on GB - one is 3 grand and the other is 4 grand.
    Strange mini .45...you need to manually rack the slide FORWARD for each shot.
