Well folks...my dream 1911's are now a reality!
Imagine a 1911 in .357, not .355 caliber.
Now imagine this cartridge performing equally or superior to the 357 Magnum...
Now imagine it as high capacity as a regular 9mm...
There you have it!
A 1911 in 357 Ring Of Fire caliber, with 9+1 in your pistol.
Retired from the Duracell/Gillette battery world in 1999. Started back in 1911,s (4) 45 acp (1) 9 mm & (1) 22. Love to reload and fine tune 1911 pistols. Live on Georgia / Florida line.
I have on order a DWX-Compact but who knows when DW will start up again. Wilson Combat makes the EDC XP9 (4”, 1911 on X Frame, 15+1). It’s beautiful but also $2700 MSRP. However, I I could trade in 2 DW ECO’s and a Sig P 365 XL recently bought but don’t like and only have a few hundred to pay for the Wilson. STI, Wilson XP9 and DWX -C are probably the three best 1911 double stacks out there.
When that DWX finally hit's the stores, STI and Wilson are going to have some serious competition @ 1700.00
