Anyone heard about this thing? It looks like it was ripped straight out of a sci-fi film. Pretty cool design. Looks like it has minimal recoil as well. It was at SHOT show, but I don't know much beyond that.

Interesting design. Fixed barrel. Did some more research but no one seems to know what caliber this is - I assume 9mm, or what the price will be once introduced into the market.

I'm hoping it'll be in the $600-800 range, but I get the uneasy feeling it'll be far more.

Heh, try $7500 for starters

And yes, it's a 9mm. Basically for the IPSC crowd, according to the manufacturer only 500 will be released in the U.S.

Is it just a "status" gat for rich guys, or is there any real justification of that price?

If you price out top end IPSC race guns, that's right in the ballpark for them. So a small market, but they'll probably sell.

Only a few firearms I'd spend that much on, and while that one is interesting, I think I'l pass on it.

With a fixed barrel it should be on the accurate side, looks like a good design, but 7500 dollars for a handgun yikes.

In the latest American Rifleman they have a 7.5 mm auto pistol, Czech make, for $7500 or so, it claims to be flat shooting and hard enough hitting to be effective against troops at 100 yards or more. I'd like to see one, but I'll let other people be the "early adopters" of this, it's a new cartridge entirely, I'd like to see outfits like Starline offer the brass. A gat you can't get brass to load for is a sad situation, even sadder if you spent $7500 on it and are now skulking around gun shows looking for a few boxes of ammo or "once fired" brass. (I put "once fired" in quotes, because, you can't really tell if brass is once fired or has been reloaded enough times that it's about used up - not pistol brass anyway. You can see an incipient separation ring on bottleneck rifle cartridges. But I digress.)


Years ago that was me skulking around guns shows looking for .30 Luger brass. Happy times now, Starline has new brass at reasonable prices. Same sitch with the .348 Winchester rifle - Starline just put that one back in production. The .348 brass ain't cheap, but, it's new, it's Starline and I have never heard anything negative about their brass quality.

Oof. $7500. Sad day.

The Makarov retains its crown as the [alien] people's handgun.

That certainly has an interesting design but is it that much better than a traditional setup to warrant the several thousand dollars extra?
