Anyone know anything about these?   The specs have it at 8.8 oz which is ridiculously light for any pocket auto IMHO.  Two of the local shops have them in stock but I know virtually nothing about them. Are they a renamed jennings, Bryco, Raven or what?  Anyway, I just thought I would ask.

My local shop has a couple of them.  They look neat. But I have no need as that niche is already filled by other guns. But if I were looking for another .380 I would be looking at these.

For a pocket pistol, why not the LCR?

It's smaller.

A local shop that I hang out at broke the first one that they had when they were testing it out.

Oh, I don't want one. I already have a Bersa and a PA-63 in 9mm Mak. The shop down the street has them and I just kind of scoffed at it and chalked it up to being some new Lorcin or whatever. He wants 308$ out the door for it.  FWIW, this guy seems to have money as he owns a bunch of property around town and this is just something else to do, for fun.  It almost seems like he's selling his guns at cost. Well, maybe not cost but for a lot cheaper than the other places in town. He gets my business.

I looked at one of them recently because I'm in the market. Seems they share a lot in principle to Kel-Tec but the trigger seems to be nicer than the P3AT. It's an interesting gun but for three bills there's better choices IMO such as the Ruger LCP and one can pick up a Sig P238 for close to $400.

Joe, care to set me up with your source? I'm looking for a pocket-pistol myself and so far the prices I've seen are high so I was looking at Bud's or CDNN but I'd rather go local.

Which one did he scoff at and want $308 out the door for?  The LCP?

Crap!  Yeah, I mean LCP, but the LCR ain't bad it you like wheelguns.

Looks like a micro Glock.  The market is getting saturated with tiny polymer .380 pistols though.

All plastic framed pistols are Glock knock-offs.  Glock is perfection.

Wrong. H&K had the first polymer framed pistol, Glock is the knock off...

I guess Glock just had a better marketing team.  I don't remember hearing about how an H&K could be carried undetected through a metal detector.  I wasn't paying much attention back then.

Don't get me wrong.  My current carry/off duty pistol is a Glock 36.  

I just don't buy into the crap about perfection.  Glocks are far from perfect.  They are good working guns that have had their share of problems over the years.  Perfection would not lead to the recalls, such as the huge repair program Glock did on the NYPD pistols.

My review


Thank you for the review.

I am guessing the pistol has a locked breach vs. straight blowback?
