    Yuk.

    Looks like a 1911 as drawn by a political caroonist who doesn't know firearms.

    Seems like they managed to screw up a lot of the things that make a 1911 beautiful. But who knows, maybe they've finally fixed some of those things that don't need fixin' -- and answered those questions no one asked. It's about time.

    Yeah, the wood grips shown are what really puts me off. The shape and design.

    The double-action Agent has become my newest object of lust.

    Is it SA/DA or DAO?
    I kinda like the idea of SA/DA 1911 with no stupid grip safety.

    Is it a true double action, or something more akin to those abysmal Para "light double action" designs?

    Looks like an LDA knock off.

    If Colt would produce what people want, they would be much better off.

    Wow, they've had 20 years to work on that design and they still haven't figured out how to make a DA action that doesn't need horrid grips to cover it. Maybe in another 20....

    It looks like a Colt-Sauer, just a little bit. :D

    Is that Photoshopped? :p With a spurless hammer and no visible safety or decocker, it appears to be a DAO, very similar to the Para-Ordnance LDA.

    Even idiots who keeps hitting themselves in the hand with a Hammer learns faster than the boys at Colt apparently .

    It didn't sell 20 or so years ago what in the world would make them think what looks like the exact same gun will today ?

    Looks a lot like the Seecamp Colts and the Double Eagle with a bobbed hammer. OBVIOUSLY DA only.

    Those Seecamps made by OTHER companies have a HORRIBLE trigger, trust me I have one. The 'real deal' Seecamps are supposed to work pretty well.

    I thought the Double eagle was pretty functional design, weak point was the grip holding in the DA 'guts', if you dropped it and broke that grip you might have parts everywhere.

    The old 'conversion' frames had a metal side plate that held everything in.

    And wait is that a POLYMER fame???

    I never was a fan of the Double Eagle, but except for the 5" barrel I like the looks of this one.

    I like the clean lines of it, and I only carry DAO, so I would certainly give it a try if they can figure out how to make it accept standard 1911 grips.

    I agree with you KurtC. I would like to try one, and see if 1911 grips fit.

    Any idea what the other side looks like? It can't be any worse, can it?
