Low-recoil 45ACP compact

The extra 1.5″ of barrel length and +1 round of capacity relative to other compact 45s are nice, but it’s the very low felt recoil that I like best about Boberg XR45-S. Plus, it is accurate and works with a wide … Continue reading

Personal endorsement: XR45-S

I currently carry XR9L and 9S pistols as the compact/subcompact options, and recommend XR45S for those who prefer larger bores. You can get cheaper subcompact guns, but none combine the long bullpup barrel, the low recoil of rotary breech, the … Continue reading

CZ97B

CZ97B was on the cover of the wonderfully photographed CZ catalog from 2000. Especially with the 10-round limit then in force, a “natural 10-rounder” in 45ACP felt like a perfect package. It was something I had long wanted but still … Continue reading

Smaller caliber and less magazine capacity? Not likely!

My new toy. Flush magazines hold 12 rounds of 45ACP, extended hold 14. This pistol is tighter than any custom 1911 I’ve handled.
