    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    Why not get a 3" 1911 then?

    It kind of reminds me of a downsized Steyr M9 series.

    If this were sized like a 3" 1911 it would have another inch or so of barrel.

    That, and the fact that although I like old slabsides a lot (I have a commander), I don't really care for manual safeties.

    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.
