I had them add me to their info list. Looks interesting, depending on the final overall size and weight. They told me target price is $849.
Like any new product, I would give it a year or so to get the bugs out.
The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

I'd wait a year or two to let the flaws float to the top...

The 'shorty' looks like you gotta' be real careful with your other hand....might lose the tip of something you may need.....
Government's first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives.
That could be awesome. An alternative to Kahr, Kel-tec, Rohrbaugh. Price point is unfortunate. Somehow we justify dropping that on 1911's, but it looks horrendous for anything else. For that kinda jack, it better be dead nuts reliable.
I hope they get ALL the bugs worked out before it goes into production. (How many sales do you supposed Kahr and Kel-Tec lose to abounding horror stories??? Even after you weed out the operator error, the barrel peening, parts breakage, and general finickiness scare a lot of people off).
I'd like to see that puppy chambered in 45acp, and sized like a 3" 1911.
It's been a long time coming, and I'm not holding my breath, but when/if it actually goes into production I'd like to fondle one. It has some real potential on paper.
Looks interesting...They've still gotta way to go, before production...

Last I had heard, they hoped to have the first one's out end of this year, early next. I think it's an interesting concept, but like most, I'd wait a year or so and see what bugs arise.

Also remember, When you go to trial by jury you are putting yourself into the hands of 12 people who weren't smart enough to get out of jury duty.
Too complicated for a slight increase in veolocity. It is about the same size as the KelTecs, but heavier than the PF-9 with the same magazine capacity, and about as heavy as a P-11 loaded with 11 rounds. If you don't feel safe with hot loads in 9mm, then why not go with a Kahr 40S&W or 45ACP and skip this Rube Goldberg pistol.
Maybe if it fires trounds or gyro-jet cartridges I'll give it a look.

It looks a little Bond, James Bondish.
Don't believe what you hear and only half of what you see!
Why not get a 3" 1911 then?I'd like to see that puppy chambered in 45acp, and sized like a 3" 1911.
It kind of reminds me of a downsized Steyr M9 series.
I viewed the website, very intriguing gun....I would entertain it if not too pricey.

Looks to complicated, and the bore axis looks high. I'd go Kel Tec or Kahr myself.

I dont know, looks like an interesting piece, but kinda like reinventing the mousetrap concept. Like the old Mateba Semiauto Revolver.
I know not what this "overkill" means.
