I absolutly aggree with you there! the 1911 is THE 45acp!As long as the P99 is made in Euroville, I doubt they will bother to make up a .45 version. I think 9P is just to popular "over there".
I really like my 9 m/m version, and think the pistol in .40 and .45 is too much in a good thing.
Besides there is no firearms yet devised in .45 can compete with a good 1911!
Pointless? I would say the point of forums such as this includes random wonderings just for the hell of it.I don't know, and it's pointless to speculate. It's probably a matter of economics, not engineering.
Well Dave from my neck of the woods 45. is not a big seller round here. If you were to walk in any shop and ask they would tell ya 40. cal and 9mm are most popular and are the biggest sellers,, every law enforcement agency here uses 9mm and .40. And most of the general public. A 45 is just an overkill in my mind, It would make a good hunting gun but as for carry or the range ill pass.
That's also why the S&W M&P.45 exists too . Unfortunately, the latest report I heard was that the US military has shelved the idea of a new .45ACP pistol for general issue.well i didnt mean to come off harsh or anything. Im curious what IS your neck of the woods? are you stateside?
because, every gun store i walk into has just as many, if not MORE 1911s laying around than tacti-plastic guns.
Also, all it takes is a quick glance on the magazine aisle at your local walmart and look at the gun magazines..... if a .45 isnt on the cover, there is at least ONE article in there about one.....
I wasnt stating my personal opinion on the matter, but rather the FACT that the latest trend, at least stateside IS shifting back to the .45...
Remember the military was recently looking for candidates for a new service weapon to replace the 93F 9MM... and they WERE looking for .45 cal candidates.......
thats why the HK 45 exists
