This pistol will suffer from what every "improvement" on the 1911 has - exclusion from the open design common parts market. Your S&W or Para Power extractor break? One choice. Your 1911 extractor break? Dozens. Ditto for a Guncrafter "Hoss" part. Now imagine if this new company goes out of business - no new parts. If a new 1911 company folds and you have one ... no problem.
