Defensive Carry banner

Springfield, PLEASE make this!

7432 49
I was playing around with some image manipulation earlier and came up with this. I call it the "Super Sub XD."



.45 ACP

Single-stack

6+1 capacity

Manual thumb safety

Small enough for pocket carry

I *almost* posted it as a real pistol, then linked to an "April Fool" page, but I'm not that cruel.

Seriously, this would rock!

:yup:

This is fun.

You might as well keep working on the image to take the rail off because it will not work. Also get rid of a few ounces from the top.

You will need to send this to Croatia because this is where the DX is made.

A solid pistol for the money but not my choice. I own a DX SC and many others that I prefer over this model.:smile:

Folks, a caveat..... Keep in mind that this would be strictly a self defense pistol. You won't be driving tacks with it at 50 yards or shooting it in competitions. The idea, or at least to me, is a .45 caliber counterpart to the LCP; small enough for pocket carry or deep concealment, but with plenty of knockout power. It could also be an excellent BUG.

Exactly! This would be a "point and shoot" gun. The sight radius would be two small to even need a three dot sight. I would opt for shotgun style sights (i.e a bead in front w/ a grove in the rear).

Bore axis is the distance from the centerline of your barrel to the top of your shooting grip. You would want to keep that distance as small as possible, but still maintain enough "meat" on your frame for integrity.

Two examples i can think of for a high axis are; XD pistols and the Walther PPS. For low axis would be all Glocks and, really low, the Hk P7.

The lower the axis the less "snappy" the recoil is. It also gives you better control on target reacquisition.

That is my broad description of bore axis. :bier:

Thanks. And I agree about the sights. I might actually do it with the "groove" sight like the Colt New Agent. It's basically a fixed groove in the slide with just a front sight.

I'll take another crack at it tonight and get the bore axis more balanced.

So if we are all working on it, should we call it......oh maybe......the "DC" model? :)

Looks similar to the 27 to me.
