These will be a special run 10rnd 45acp, that is a cross between a Glock and a 1911... These will feature Heinie's Straight Eight Slant Pro night sights, and be custom engraved. Furthermore, they will be serialized "CAH-001 thru CAH-050". The CAH stands for "Castle Arms/Heinie", since this is a joint project with the master pistolsmith.

The firearm in question is the Alchemy Arms "Spectre" SG series, with the milspec finish.

The numbers sold are 001, 002, 007, 013 and obviously 050... All others are available, but since they are being built in 2 lots, the numbers will only be allocated up to 025, then when those are all gone, the remainder will be allocated!

While the regular retail of this outstanding pistol is $775, we will be offering this one-time custom configuration for only $750 (with the Heinie sights!). Furthermore, I'll be checking on the best possible prices for the M5 and also the M6/Laser.

This is a special promotion in order to gain exposure for this awesome and relatively unknown company, that is being handled solely by Castle Arms. Basically, when we met these guys and fell in love with their product, we wanted to help them gain industry recognition and give you guys a great deal on quite possibly the most unique new pistol to enter the scene.

I fired this last evening immediately after taking the pics shown below, and can attest to this actually having less felt recoil than a 9mm. This was a claim the manufacturer made, and we thought it was just typical hype and bullshit... It's most certainly not!

Here are 2 pics of the Spectre... The 2nd pic shows an "Insight M5" tac-light mounted to the rail

Very interesting hybrid ( not to be confused with the hybrid porting). Single action only?

Hey anti-
that's an interesting looking design merger.
You indiate that this will be a special run of an enhanced base model. This brings up a few questions. Wasn't (isn't) this company involved in "Smart Guns" at some point?
What's the level of production on the base model Spectre SG in number of units produced? How long has it been in production and distribution?
What is the mode of operation? Is it striker, cam or hammer? Do they use their own magazine design or have they incorporated someonelse's?
Is there any further information available on this? Thanks.

I believe it had been looked at in the early days of this company...

What's the level of production on the base model Spectre SG in number of units produced?
Not a clue, but we do get ours first! How they started up a couple of years ago, then stopped to regruop, and are back in full swing at this point.

Striker

Do they use their own magazine design or have they incorporated someonelse's?
This uses a modified WITNESS mag.

Is there any further information available on this?
Just what can be found on their website... www.alchemyltd.com

Thanks.
