USPSA is gaming every division. Production class; making the original purpose of an affordable entry to competitive sport to a Race Production with new open rules. PCC with everything that can be mounted on carbine, now 1911. Just make it more expensive for the average shooter to keep up with the Jones. Think about it now, isn’t it always, “LESS IS MORE”. USPSA has $s on its mind. Following what manufactures want to sell. It is not going to make one a better performer, it is PRACTICE. Practice cost money too. Just my take on what is going on.

whats wrong with .45 acp is it no longer accepted as major?

Marcus

It is, but due to a number of factors its less popular these days. Personally, i prefer 200gr 45 over 180gr 40, but i dont run multiple guns in multiple divisions.

Jim W

40 should be backed down to minor power factor because of the super soft handloads competitors are running

Bob L

Jim W. Why should .40S&W be backed down to minor. If you believe the .45 shooters aren’t loading powder puff loads you’re kidding yourself. If you have a valid concern suggest that your local club have an unannounced Chrno day. Go to every person and pull 8 rounds from their magazines that you choose and Chrono them all. If anyone is more than 10 points from Major, if that’s what they’re claiming, don’t move them to OPEN, DQ them for unsportsmanlike conduct!!! The rules support it. Just do it. a .40 can make well over a 200PF jus like a… Read more »

” The rules support it.”

No… they dont.

Not making pf at chrono gets you bumped to minor for the match. Thats all.

Bob

I got a DQ at Area 7 match due to factory ammo not making PF at chrono stage for Limited. It must be in the rules…

Mike

Great job making this in 40 caliber. 9mm is minor power factor and will never win in the limited division.

Jeff Ehrlich

Just saying 1911 was very disappointing NOT a single stack eligible 1911, would have been nicer and less missleading if stated double stack in headline.

Marcus

Amen. The bull barrel alone keeps it from being single stack legal.. whats the point to a single stack limited gun… 🙁

Don

Offer it in .357 Sig. for people that like shooting 9mm bullets.

Richard

Make it a 10mm and I will buy one.

Phil

I’m like Richard…I would take one of these and ream the chamber to 10mm.
I used to shoot the 9×25 in open, back in the day…still do occasionally!
The 10mm case is extremely strong, it can be loaded to the proper overall length the 1911 was designed for: 1.250-1.275. You don’t have to load the .40 S&W case to extreme OAL.
…and you could use the brass until you can’t read the headstamp anymore!!!!!!!

Wojada

In 40…really?!? Make it in 9mm and take advantage of softer shooting, quicker follow up, less expensive ammo.

Mark

This gun is built for competition not casual shooting. .40 gets advantageous scoring in uspsa & ipsc. If the market is comptitive shooters, .40 is the caliber of choice.

Robabuba

Its for USPSA – Du Mbass… Stick to the 9mm and leave the real ammo for men.

Bob L

And who’s the Du Mbass??? So if someone wants to shoot Limited Najor with a .40, which we all do, why would he shoot a minor 9??? Oh I know!!! Because you’re a real man!!!Bob L
