    Well, I plunked it down ....

    Brand, spakin' new Detonics USA Combat Master is on the way from Impact Guns. Have only been here a short while, but would I be correct in my assumption that a certain apelike member here will have the sweats over this post?

    Sheesh, somebody STOP me!

    ... or actualy, don't!

    Best,
    Jon

    Cool. Ive never heard of Detonics before. The grip looks bigger that my Springfield, from the pics I saw. I really like that, cause I have long fingers.

    Thumbs up Detonics

    I owned one of the original "Way Back When" Detonics pistols.
    It was a great firearm. Very reliable and mine was amazingly accurate for a chopped .45 ~ I need to see if I can locate an old receipt and find out exactly how much $$ I paid for that firearm back then.

    OH....BTW BigJon...Welcome to the forum! :unitedsta

    ya never heard of the Detonics before? They were around in the mid 70s and went for quite a while. Then they went under (the Seattle Wa guns were the early lones and very desireable too
    I traded a Stainless Mk5 for a H&K PSP (the H&K was an even money swap, as the PSP sold for 357.00 at that time in 1980) I still have that PSP too

    Another fossil here - more so than Class3 too!!!

    Back in 80's a guy at my then club had one and it was a fascinating piece. For me it was probably the first real compact I had come across. Really wouldn't mind having one either.

    Definitely Jon - mucho feedback later!

    Yes Bob - I kinda thought after I'd posted last you might come back with that ! I might dream but being realistic - it ain't priority. Do tho send me one for long term test tho by all means LOL!

    George Hill did a nice write-up in CC Mag a few issues ago. Very objective.
