Hello all. I'm pretty new to the forums and love the great reading you have all provided for me. I have found a lot of great information.
I received a firearm from my step father that is pretty "rare". Not too many were made from what I understand. The gun is a CAC 45-I. From which I understand is a Carson Arms Corp. I will post some pictures. Hopefully someone here will be able to help me indentify the style and were I might be able to find some spare parts for it.
This firearm is very acurate and shoots very well. if more pictures are needed. I will be happy to take some more when I get home from work.

From what I have been told. The firearm was a prototype and didn't make out to well. The overall feel is nice. It has a great weight to it, and kicks like a mule. It was like the designers stop caring after the overall look of the gun. The internals are strange. I was hoping to see if someone knew of the company so I can maybe "swap" parts with a similar stype firearm to make this even better.
Judging by the "style" I'd say its from the 80s - the trigger is what makes me think that. Any other markings on the gun? Check the insides of the grip panels. It looks similar to a Colt Officer's - at least as far as the basic shape of the frame and magazine release go. The slide looks quite unfortunate - fixed sights front and rear? Hmm... I did a quick search and didn't find anything. It looks like a custom slide on a modified frame. Can you take it apart?
I will take some pictures of it being field stripped. It is interesting how is strips.
Like a colt, you push the recoil spring in. With this one, it has a cap that unscrew from the tip of the barrel. It's hard to explain. I will take some more pictures tonight.
The markings on the right side of the slide are strange. It says "Carson, Ga." Right? Except there isn't a Carson, Ga is there? I can only find a Carsonsville, Ga in Taylor County. I figured maybe we could find the company for sure by the city/state stamped on the slide...Guess not.

Interesting. Looking forward to seeing the field and/or detail stripped pictures. I still think its adapted from the Colt Officer's frame - I wonder what they were trying to accomplish? What is the type of action on the gun? Curious!
