I recently picked up a Georgia made Detonics Combat Master with 3" barrel in silver finish. Its a very sweet pistol and I like it a lot. It has fed ammo without problem and I really like the size and weight. I unfortunately have a few problems with it.
First, I am concerned about not having a grip safety. The hammer just sits out their in space and just feels unsecure compared to my other 1911 pistols. Am I worrying about nothing?
Second, I did take the risk and lower the hammer on a loaded chamber twice but I just don't think I can do it again. It seems that that was the way the pistol was designed since the hammer is high up designed for rapid finger cocking. I just don't want to lower the hammer on a loaded chamber. Too much risk. I also don't like carrying with an empty chamber.
I normally carry a Springfield Micro Compact 3" IWB or a R9 or S&W 442 in the front pocket. I just saw this sweet piece in the case for a good price and made an impulse purchase. I like how it shoots, I'm just not sure how to carry it.
Any other Detonics owners care to comment. Thanks.
