Is there a waiting list yet?

Yes.  Contact Tom Watson of the Irish Guard.  Send him a PM.

I'm wondering if it will be okay with +P ammo, I hope so! I was also wondering, will the frame be alloy or stainless? Or perhaps some other material. I'm mainly hoping the gun will be smaller than the PM45 and definitely no larger than the AMT Backup .45acp. It will be nice to have a small .45acp that is pocket sized from a company that is in business! The Kahr PM45 is just too large IMO. I also hope they also keep the heel mag release design like on the R9's. I really would still like to see a steel framed R9 someday as well. Polygonal rifling would be nice too, for a little extra velocity. I also hope they stop using the hex screws and go with slotted ones.

I for one could handle an R45s in my stocking. Looking forward to seeing it when released .

Super stoked to read this news and will not be buying a PM45 while I wait for my R45 as I did with the PM9 and R9 stealth.  

Please, if this gets scanned by anyone at Rohrbaugh, please include a Stealth version in the first release if at all possible.  I know I won't be getting an R45 until a stealth or stealth like version is available.  I guess I'm just a black gun kind of guy.

I for one don't want to see slotted screws on anything. The first thing to go on my 1911s is the slotted screws, a good allen head is much better than a slotted screw could ever hope to be.
  The problem with the screws that come with the R9 is they have an extremely small allen head (1/16") and the stainless is softer than an alloy steel.

John is right. I have seen a lot of slotted screws that were all but destroyed by cheap screwdrivers and equally bad screw drivers.
