    I am always on a lookout for new pistols in development, but have not kept up with my research lately. The ones I am interested in are Boberg and Microtech Archangel. Please feel free to share some information on any other new developments out there.

    Colt is making a semi-automatic pistol.

    The round is a .45, but shorter.

    Not really new, but Springfield is expanding the XD(M) line, including a 3.8" barrel, supposedly a subcompact model, and hopefully adding .45 to the caliber lineup

    "Colt is making a semi-automatic pistol."

    Can't find much on it - is it another 1911 or are the moving into something different?

    smirnoff a, I did a check with Microtech and their Archangle has been put on hold for now as they are focusing on developing a new rifle.:( Thus the Archangle has been pushed back untill the forth quarter of this year or maybe early 2011. This was a real let down as I have been wanting one for a while and have my FFL keeping an eye out for them when they ever get production going. LM

    Hmmm, doubt it

    :banghead::banghead::banghead::D Yeah right! There is marketing and then there is hype. This was the biggest case of premature ejaculation in handgun history.

    Some interesting prospects here. It is sad to hear about Archangel being put on the back burner. Zigana looks like a fun inexpensive range toy. I’be been following Boberg threads for a while now and it is probably the most interesting, although not a revolutionary design. Most of other choices appear to be nothing truly new.

    Check out the new Taurus 24/7 G2: http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=503252

    It shares many Glock-like features (like trigger safety and slide dis-assembly lever), but has "double strike" trigger, ambidextrous safety/slide lock/mag release, exchangeable back strap (3 sizes), metal magazine/mag release and conventional land/groove rifling. The grip angle looks more like my PT145Pro which has a more "natural" point of aim (similar to 1911 grip angle).

    Looks like Glock/M&P had a fling and had a baby! :D Would like to try one.

    KRISS TDI 45ACP and 40S&W soon

    Looks like Kriss TDI is finally coming to market in 45ACP with 40S&W following.

    What do you think?

    That Kriss pistol has got to be ungainly to fire one-handed. What's the weight?

    I've heard more than enough times, that they simply will not be making a .45 XDm, that I'd say don't hold your breath for that one.
