Sir,
Thanks for your interest in our products! The Patriot 45 Is sold by

solid stainless 440. The trigger pull is in the 10 pound range, but
can be
improved with additional fluff and buff by the owner. The warranty is
life-time, factory direct.

Subject: Patriot .45 ?

Hello,im liking your Patriot 45 more and more and have
decided that its time to get one.Some ?'s
1.Does it use officers model 1911 mags and if so how
many mags does the gun come with?
2.Is the stainless finish slide made from a cast zinc
alloy? If not,is it 4040 steel (?) or the one thats
used mostly for slides and frames?
3.How heavy is the trigger in pounds?
4.My FFL hasnt seen any wholesaler selling these,but
he normally uses Davidsons,CDNN,Aim surplus or SOG.Do
they sell them?
5.What is your warranty?
Thank You!

I have read that the recoil on these things is a bear, but at around $200 new, they do make me curious.
They are the only .45 that I know of that are as slim as 1911 guns.

The original Patriot got very good reviews from the KelTec crowd.

You need to buy one and post an in-depth review. :D

The best i can do so far is $227.00 in hand.Maybe ill take the plunge.For those who arent familiar with the patriot .45acp,its the same size as a Kel-Tec P-40.

Here's the kink to the other Patriot thread from a couple weeks ago.

I have a Patriot 45 and the recoil is less than my Kel-Tec P-11 (9mm).

Thats good to hear! How has yours been deles? The recoil from my Charles Daly compact .45acp DDA is pretty fierce at least compared to my other guns.Maybe the patriot wont be so bad.

I've never shot a P11 but the recoil on the Patriot I shot a couple years ago was not uncomfortable in the least. It has a pretty good sized grip for a relatively small and lightweight pistol and 230 Gr bullets (only thing I shot in it) have never had offensive reoil to me. The owned (who I haven't talked to since that day) said he carried standard pressure 185 grainers of some sort... I'm thinking Golden Sabers ???

The trigger pull is in the 10 pound range, but can be
improved with additional fluff and buff by the owner. The emphasis is mine. That's awesome to read something like that it today's climate, let alone from a gun manufacturer!:o

Thats true,never thought about it.Also makes me think that you wouldnt affect your warranty if you did fluff and buff it.

I'd get that clarified before I did it.

Tropical Z,
I own both the Charles Daly Compact 1911-a1 (one of the first ones) and a Republic Arms (Cobra) Patriot .45. Recoil isn't a problem for me from either pistol. My Patriot has been trouble-free from the start.

1911 magazines lock and worked well in the Patriot I owned. I didn't have any officer sized mags, but I think they would have worked well also. Only problem was the grip angle. Because the grip angle was different, the angle of the exposed mag was a bit weird looking.
