R-45 is Coming
« on: January 18, 2011, 04:01:21 PM »
Hey guys,

Updating you from the SHOT Show Press Room.

The R-45 is not on display at the show.  The bad news is -- I can't share any pictures.

The good news is that I can confirm that I have held the prototype.  The prototype looks great, and is functional.  Karl is not yet happy with the shape and contours of the slide, and did not want to reveal the gun to the public at this point.  I think I am the only person outside of the factory insiders to see it.

I can confirm that the R-45 is going to be a great addition to the line.  I definitely want one.  Once again, I think that Karl is going to build an instant classic.  Other than that...I am sworn to secrecy.  I will publish more information when it becomes available.

I can also tell you that Karl is on a mission to make this gun.  It will happen, and it will happen well before SHOT 2012.

Further details, this affiant sayeth naught.

KJ;

Yes, I see that! †;D

I am ready for one of those R45 hand cannons. So if the R9 is a "pup" †will the R45 be a "Rottweiler"?

dano.  The BIG DAWG sounds good to me.  You may have coined the name for the R45.    :D
