    Never heard of them, but for the price they're asking no thanks!

    One of my customers wants one. He is 73 and has some awesome pieces in his collection. If he orders it, I'll let you know how it shoots.

    They look ok but that price is way up there.

    25% more "Knockdown" power than any other 9mm in its class????????

    Now how do they achieve that, I wonder. Unless because it is +P rated?

    It may be a very good little pistol, but no thanks unless I win the Mega Millions and I'll buy a sackful fer paperweights or party favors :tooth:

    I think that 25% claim is exaggerated by about 25%.
    Not too many problems you can't fix

    +P rating and having a marginally larger barrel than most pistols in its class.

    I think it's hokum myself.

    The chamber is much further back than on another equally sized gun. In other words, a 3" sized gun has a 4" barrel. More barrel length = more bullet speed.

    Im copying from the book
    " The cartridges are inserted into the mag. foward leavind the rim exposed at the rear, on the underside of the slide is a pair of tongs at the front to grip the rim and pull the cartridge out rearwards onto a platform on the frame, when the slide reaches full rear travel it striks a lug on the platform lifting the round up to feed into the chamber " This gives you a bbl of 3.35" the pistol weighs 17.4 oz. length is 5.1" hight 4.2" and width 0.95" mag hlds 7 rds.
