You got a Fratelli?!?!

How the hell did you swing that? *drools*

I am sooooooo coming over to shoot it. Pretty, pretty please!! That thing is supposed to have the best trigger on the market right out of the box.

Benning,

Doesnítí the Fratelli have the those new nitrogen tubes (like the trijicon tubes in night sights)that are imbedded in the frame to cool the barrel and prevent the minor accuracy deflection that the heat from multiple rounds causes?

Man, we really need a range report.

I am soooo jealous

Trigger is like a glass rod snap, and simultaneously smooth as hell. Don't know how they do it. The dealer sold me a Timney drop in, but I took it back, didn't see the need.

That was the prototype that was displayed at the SHOT show.

This has a compartment in the frame that fits a standard CO2 capsule, like air pistols and paintball guns.

There is a selector switch that gauges CO2 release, marked "Target" and "Sustained". It regulates how much and how fast your capsule discharges. I haven't seen it, but they apparently have a military model, with a third setting for auto fire.

I have 2 aftermarket 37 round magazines, but since ammo is still scarce, moot point.

Does the Fratelli have a straight pull like the 1911? If so, I may be in the market.

If it has the "Safe Action" trigger, it there any way to convert it?

Straight pull, about 5.5 lbs., waiting to see if break in lightens that....

As you know me and Rugers; I found a rare Speed six conversion that was rechambered and rebarrelled for this cartridge. Its reduces it to a 5 shot, but hey!

mesinge2, have you had a chance to chrono your .43 Luger loads out of that Security "Five"?

I'd love to hear the ballistic characteristics of this load. When I Googled ".40 S&W vs. .43 Luger", THR.com only had ballistics that looked like total crap #'s.

I'd like to see the real deal!

Sorry, bro, but you cannot use the Kurz- those headspace off the rim, and you will mess up big time. This is why I went for the .41 Clack & Brosswell. Being a belted case, you can use short or longs, lead or jacketed. But finding the loading dies and the electric primers for those can be a challenge.
