I'd happily run a few boxes through it, but I'm a fan of tapered cone barrels. The added weight forward of the grip helps get the muzzle back down. It also seems to help get the action to lock back up quicker.

The only thing that I have to compare it to is a Couple of Commanders though, so I could be taking out of my ass.

You have a full sized Nighthawk?

You bet, the GRP, which I ran through Valhalla with over 400 rounds and never had a hiccup. That thing is a work of art - first one I bought and that lead to two more... evil, vile creatures. They call to you like the Siren's Song - it's terrible....

soo ive narrowed it down between the
kimber ultra carry
and the para warthog

i've been seeing some reviewers of the warthog say they get alot of failure to feed issues but it's easily fixed with a replacement spring in the clips. but i like the look of the warthog

the kimber is well its a kimber and im seeing nothing but great reviews
i think im gonna have to get my hands on them to make the final decision

soo does anyone have any advice or recomendations on other pistols
im looking for something in the warthog or ultra carry size

This might sound like heresy, but what about the Para Carry GAP or the Springfield EMP. I know the GAP is not a "real" .45, and the EMP is 9mm, but the guns are built even smaller than many standard micro-1911s.
