    Now all you need is, holsters, mags, cleaning and maintenance gear, targets, lots of ammo, range fees and accessories. All I can say is congratulations and welcome. :D

    Seems like that stuff initially costs as much as the gun don't it?

    Well. Let's examine this now guys before we cast stones...

    It's .45 ACP - Just like John Moses Browning intended.

    It's got a frame mounted safety - Just like John Moses Browning intended.

    The slide is all stainless steel construction. Close to what was intended.

    (Front &) Rear cocking serrations. Close to what was intended.

    Polished Chamber and Feed Ramp. A recognized "upgrade" to the modern evolution of the platform.

    Well. :eek: From there it deviates greatly from the vaunted 1911 platform.

    BUT !!! There is enough evidence to deduce that this pistol was inspired by the 1911 platform, much the same way H&K did with their USP line.

    Upon reflection and inspection, if the OP posts some range targets, I am going to give this 4 out of 5 banks! :cool:

    Looking forward to a Range Report!!

    Our police department is switching to a FNS (? Sounded right until I typed it) 9mm. I had never heard of them but apparently they are assembled right here in my city.

    Congrats!
