Anyone handled one of these yet? I've seen 2 listed on one of the auction sites, so I guess they are shipping.
Anyone know the background of the people in charge of the company? Are they from any previous California gun manufacturer, or a new company?
They have an interesting website, esp. some of the links to blogs.

No idea, though I do like the Bill of Rights engraving.

Yes, local range had one in the counter and engravings caught my eyes.
It was the Bill of Rights engraved on the slide! FMK = For My Kountry.

The quality of construction and finish was good, but the DAO trigger was firm. If you read the content on the website, the founder/inventor has an interesting basis for building this pistol.

- 9mm
- Polymer frame
- Double action only trigger
- 10+1, single stack magazine
- 4.0" barrel
- 23.45 oz (2345? was that intentional?)
- 8 interchangeable low profile sights
- California and Massachusetts approved
- 100% American made

I googled this and found a thread on Maryland gun owners with posts from april 2009, so it must not be that new...but it looks cool.

Very interesting. This is the first I've heard of it. Thank you for bringing it to my attention.

Is that the Wilson Combat pistol?

No. The Wilson Combat ADP is actually a re-branded South African Heritage Stealth.

Looks cool, though I could do without the Bill Of Rights plastered all over it. Just an other striker fired pistol to me. Plus low cap. to fit Comifornia's BEAT laws. Get one of the real ones (Glock, M&P), unless you've got money to burn. My thoughts.

Looks like another Glock copy to me also. Ain't nothing like the real thing as they say.

Read this!

Gun looks ok. Like the slide but the frame looks a bit unrefined.

I don't care for the red trigger safety or red loaded chamber indicator.

Maybe make one for those of us who don't live in Kali or Mass.

Maybe I am not patriotic enough, but if I have to use a gun I don't give a rodent's tail end whether it has the Bill of Rights, the Bible, or anything else engraved on it. I care if it works and shoots where I point it. All the patriotism and engraving in the world won't make it a good gun if it won't do those two things.

I am not a fan of DAO trigger as fast accurate double taps/multiple follow-up shots are not possible.

When I handled one at the range sales counter, pistol finish/size/weight felt OK, but the trigger was too firm for me, even for DAO. It was heavier than typical Taurus DAO trigger, which I also do not like.

I would recommend the new Sigma SD (http://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/product_info.php/cPath/21_39_71/products_id/69241) over this pistol at a lower price, higher capacity, night front sight, standard accessory, better trigger, etc.
