    Why it didnt' catch on?

    Some new shooters thought they had to squeeze for each shot.
    The gas tube heated the gun up enough to burn you.
    It was heavy.
    It was expensive.
    First came out with a heel release and was dismissed by most US shooters early.

    it was the price, the Euro mag release........and it's not your usual design.........the gas tube heats up a bit........after about 30 rounds......BUT it will function with a broken extractor, and other stuff too.........I'd trust my life with it.....as i've done for over 25 yrs

    One reason; price.

    These pistols have always been expensive.

    For that price can you put me on the "list" too?

    I'd love to give my P7 Euro a younger brother.

    I don't think price has ever stopped a gun from catching on.

    Case in point, the 1911, USP, Sigs, etc. all cost a war pension.

    I can understand the other reasons, but I don't think price has a darn thing to do with it.
