    i saw one of these recently. i don't think i'd want one, for the simple fact that i can get a pocket .380 a whole lot cheaper than what they'd want for theirs, and worked just as well. if i'm gonna pay top $$ for a pocket gun, i'd get a Kahr .380.

    It looks like the 80's vintage Grendel .380.

    It does look like a Grendel.

    The ones listed on gunbroker (newer ones?) at moment look somewhat like a Kel Tec too.

    looks like a ZVI Kevin clone



    I'm heading to the gun show in a few minutes... I'll see if I can track one down and see how it feels in the hand. I had a P3-AT that I hated, but this one looks pretty interesting

    IIRC there is another thread about here and it was stated that it is a ZVI Kevin imported and stamped with the Magnum Reasearch name.

    As jahwarrior mentioned, in that price range, I'd probably go with the Kahr

    I got to eye ball one the other day, I'm not impressed, I'd take a NAA Guardian any day of the week over that thing.

    Saw one at the gun show today, and I though it said Micro Desert Eagle (or perhaps what's what the fellow who was handling it said). We agreed that "Desert Sparrow" might be a better name.

    Not to be disrespectful of it as a firearm, however: I'll let the folks who know guns weigh in on it. I was just amused by the name.

    I have seen one in person. It is no where near as ugly as the pics.

    For those folks who like to drop a gun in their pocket, it's fine. I prefer something more fun at the range as well as portable. I suspect this piece is as snappy as the Kel-Tec and LCP.
