That looks like it could have some good potential. I'd like to find one to check out first though. I'd rather see it in a 9mm though, but it looks like it could be a good option for a small pocket pistol.
Just what we need another 380 to choose from? Why take a chance on a unproven platform when there are plenty of quality pistols out there in 380acp? I think these guys would have been much better off if they would have built a small compact 9mm, not as many of them to choose from. Then put a few out there for some third party testing. Could be another Glock or could be another Davis Industries.
My suggestion: It might be a fantastic and perfectly functioning firearm but, if it's being made by a small and new/budding/unknown company - Buy all of your extra magazines and a complete spare parts kit at the same time that you purchase the firearm.....because you may not be able to find anything available for that gun two or three or five years down the road.
Looks like a nice high quality firearm though and based on the description on their site it's got good, modern manufacture.
Precision machined from billet - hardened 4140 Barrel & Slide. Glass reinforced polymer frame.
If it's a high quality firearm that functions well then I wish them much success.
It takes some real entrepreneurial guts to open up a manufacturing business these days and in this crappola economy.
That's some good American Pioneer Spirit. :usflag:
it looks like a better pair of sights than the micro 380s usually have...whether theres a great deal of value in that or not with a short range defense gun it does show a bit of attention to detail...and being former kel tec employees they might want to be showing off some improvements rather than just trying to cash in...i dont know how anyone could really build a "cheap" version of a kel tec...they really are about as frill devoid as you can get and far from a high quality fun to shoot firearm...but they have their place...
Well, I own a KelTec .380 and based on the one photo that I saw of a Kel-Tec kaboom w/ the slide metal folded out - the Kel-Tec slide is not hardened.
So that is one improvement right there.
Magazines look to be mfged by MecGar - so that is good. :yup:
Seeing the insides I'd say for sure very Glock like.. IMO, it actually looks like it could be a winner, as far as a pocket .380. Still wish designers would focus on the subcompact 9mms though, better market IMO.
I have my little Ruger LCP and my bigger better Bersa Thunder, all the .380s that I really need...BUT, at Bill Goodman's Gun and Knife Show, I saw a shiny little Beretta...and a couple of stainless-steel Sig Saurs that look real nice at double the price.
