    I like the length, does it seem to anyone else like it would be hard to get a good grip on?

      It’s one of the most comfortable guns I’ve ever fired. Accurate, with low recoil, slight muzzle flip…it feels more like a CZ75 than the pocket pistol it is.

        So, the real question is, will Arne Boberg ever make them in .45 ACP?

        I mean, imagine a gun slightly bigger than this firing the .45 ACP and with a barrel that’s full length. That’d drive home the message that while 1911 is a fine weapon, it’s been surpassed.

        Anyway,… my dream carry gun. Now I know what I want, I just have to earn money to get one.

        Bloody import duties and fees. That’ll add like $300 to the price, at least.

      Looking at it, seeing the undercut trigger guard and the magazine baseplate, is that most would get a pretty good two finger grip onto it. The weight, such as it is, will be centered over the hand, and not forward towards the muzzle.

    Does it actually exist? Can one go into a store and buy one? Are there spare magazines available? It looks like a nice guy. But it has looked like a nice gun for 5 years.

    Trust me, it’s worth the wait. I’ve held the current production model and have fired several of the prototypes in years past. Oleg’s CZ75 analogy is spot-on. It’s extremely comfortable and has a very predictable/manageable recoil.

    Given the production stamp on the image above, I’d say it’s coming soon.

    Haven’t noticed until now that they’re based out of WBL, MN, and I grew up 20-30 minutes away. Makes me happy. Can’t wait to see them on the shelves at the local store.

    Any idea on price yet?

    The one thing that has me worried, and unlikely to buy it is the 1yr warranty. I’ve grown too accustom to the lifetime warranties other manufacturers have.

    I fear that this very cool design will suffer from a few thing. Most wont buy beause it isnt a clone of their favorite system. The remaining ones will want to wait a few years and see how they work out, which helps the manufacturer only to close out a model or close up shop.

    Low numbers mean big prices, which isnt too bad for a good quality piece. But ther is a limit to most budgets.
