They are definitely saying this gun is an evolution of the 1911 more than any other firearm design. Historically expensive striker fired handguns tend to not sell as well as those under $700 even if they are "worth it". Look at the arsenal strike one that gets excellent reviews, but most of us will not own one or really don't have any interest because of the price. At least this one is all metal. If and when the 45acp version hits the market I may actually consider buying one.

Interesting pistol. MSRP is a bit high--guessing street price will have
to drop into the $600-$700 range to generate any sales. It's sort of
1911ish. From a distance. If the lights are low--and you squint a bit.
Kind of sounds like a bad bar hookup, where in the light of day things look pretty ugly.

I think I've had my fill of striker fired pistols with the Springfield XDM I own and is presently stashed away awaiting a possible trade for an all metal hammer fired .40 S&W pistol, perhaps a Springfield 1911 EMP or another Stoeger Cougar, not sure I want to own another poly framed pistol either. Metal is my friend.

In order to achieve this low bore axis, Hudson moved the takedown pin and recoil assembly down in front of the trigger guard. Let's talk physics. All this does is transfer recoil straight into the arm. Follow up shots may be more accurate at the expense of arm wear on the shooter. Don't expect this translates to fun shooting. Weight of steel may offset discomfort.

At what point does it no longer qualify as a 1911? Caliber? Capacity? Design?

If you take an Elk and replace it's head and legs with a Mule deer head and legs, is it still an Elk?

To me it is not a 1911, because it is not a hammer fired pistol with a hammer strut and mainspring housing in the grip. It also lacks the removable barrel bushing.

They can call it a 1911 inspired pistol, but this is not a 1911 because it does not follow the design patent of John M Browning for that particular pistol.

I'm not saying that you can not call the changes improvements but you can't call it a 1911, not really anyway.

There are lots of pistols that will match the 1911 service weapon, and exceed it. Get into target/match built guns and again there are others that will match it.
