I'd consider one, if it were even half that price, but at nearly 3k I'd rather have a HK SP-89...

carpettbaggerr wroteWell, it's popular enough here, judging from the number of threads
I read trough most of the posts and did not find anyone mentioning that they either had one on order or owned one. I do see that it has been popular to talk about but I dont think that equates into a market for the gun.

Well, that gun is kinda like what we in the computer world refer to as Vaporware. They have built that prototype gun and the cartridge. But, with it's outlandish price, no one is going to buy it! Not when you could buy 3 or 4 S&W 500 Mags or 50 AE Desert Eagles or something else with that amount of cash.
They offer it for a grand, and it would probably sell like the classic stack of flapjacks.
I'm not a 1911 guy, but the cartridge itself interests me.

Interesting idea, but for hta price I could get the Les Baer Thunder Ranch 1911 i was looking at and a Desert Eagle or BFR or somehting else to shoout the big stuff.

Yeah, I think I saw that in American Handgunner a while back. I kinda like the idea-it seems like a nice, powerful, big caliber auto without being as overkill as the Desert Eagle.

I saw this at the SHOT Show last year.
Very cool product, but far too rich for my wallet.

wow, stuffing an even fatter bullet in a 1911. Reduce capacity even further and increase the weight.
That is a $3000 sick joke. :rolleyes:

Weight (40oz) is the same, and capacity is the same (7 rounds in the magazine).

very intresting if of course if it was reasonably priced it would sell to alot of people I wouldnt mind shooting it but my para .45 with hydroshok hollowpoints will do some serious damage If that wont do the trick then I dont know what will, Bigger the better? Of course as men excess is great but I realize the same ol .45 has been working at taking people out with one shot so why fix it if it isnt broken? As for hunting which this gun isnt i would rather a .44 mag so to me the gun wouldnt be practical even if it was 1000 because the ammo is mad proprietary and that means pricey in a shtf situation this gun would be useless because ur ammo is all you got no one will have any like it, also if you ever wanna resell it to get your money back out of it which with most guns you can this one i doubt you would find many buyers 10 years down the road when the ammo isnt made any more if it is? Seems like a neat idea to shoot but highly unpractical
