Since I'll be waiting another year for my R45...
« on: November 03, 2007, 10:48:02 PM »
Anything comparable to one?  Either in 10MM, 357 Sig, or 45 ACP?  I don't care for Kahrs, I'll try a G36 tomorrow -- anything else?

The Para Ordnance "Covert Black Slim Hawg" might be of interest. It weighs in at 24 ounces empty and holds 6+1 rounds of .45 ACP.

As for me, I've not only budgted but also authorized and appropriated funds for procurement of an R-45.   8)

There isn't much of a comparison between the Kimber and the Rohrbaugh.  Plus the Kinber is a SA--useless for a carry gun IMO.  The average person will either forget to cock the hammer or forget to release the safety in a split second life or death situation.

Well, A) the SA pistol bit has been beaten to death here -- B) you REALLY, REALLY shouldn't carry a 1911 w. the hammer down on a live round...

I wouold have thought that by now that improvements would have been made to the 1911 design so that it was safe to carry hammer down on a loaded chamber.  Doesn't the grip safety take care of the problem?

Yes, the SA thing has been beaten to death but I just can't let it go.  I am sorry, it is a personality flaw I have.

the R45 will happen in the spring or summer of 2008. Just a short wait. ;)   Tom

What about a Sig 220 Compact or 245?  I prefer metal frame to polymer.
