  • Well engineered CC pistol

    Interesting little pistol that wont see the light of day here in Aus on a Cat H. It has a beautiful kind of ugly about it, but its the internals that get me going. Interesting that the pistol will ONLY work with well crimped ammo; the claw jerking the round backwards out of a magazine is probably equivalent to a bullet-puller hammer.

    Interesting concept of operation and design to keep the longest barrel in the shortest package.

    I still prefer the idea of a hammerless snubnose revolver as a very small CCW.

      That's true; most CC semi pistols are only 5-7 round capacity anyway. Might as well have a revolver in .357.

      If I could get access to these firearms, I would buy them purely to admire the inner workings. The fact that the gun could fail (and completely lock up) if the bullet slips out of the case makes it a bit of a dice roll when it comes to self defence.

        You could probably have one as a collectible on collectors licence
        The xr9-l version has 4.2in barrel and should be legal on target Cat "H"

          so how does 4.2 in make the 120mm required barrel length for Cat H target?

        Its a nice looking handgun but as CC choice it would very low on my list.

        It really fails the KISS principle.

          Has had reliability issues which would be concerning in a CC pistol, particularly mag-related. No idea why they decided to dispense with a follower

            Might have been done in an effort to increase the mag capacity...

              Unfortunately at the expense of reliability

              I watched the short 2nd video several times.
              I want one of those mags...
              Every time a shot was fired and it chambered a new round, another round magically appeared at the bottom of the mag.
              I SO WANT one...

              just sayin'.

                Recoil was better than I thought. Mag is sort of weird to load as the rounds go in backwards. The one I fired had a mag follower, so it appear they have changed that.
                The main problem with it is the cost. For the same price I could get a pair of S&W Shields.
                The other thing that concerned me was the hammer. It's like this giant flap at the back. Having CCW'd a lot, I see pocket and clothing lint and such might be a problem getting under that. Beautifully engineered though.
                for the guys who were bagging the feed mechanism, the claw style feed mechanim where a round is withdrawn backwards out of the feed device is used in the PKM a gun well known for it's reliability. It can be perfectly reliable if designed well.
