    They need to also make this in 10MM, .45 ACP and .22 WMR. Will buy them if they did. Will wait to see this.

      There will be .45acp available for 2016

    The wait is almost over. Been jonesing for this since I saw it on Tac TV. Looks like they have a winner. Night sights would have been a plus. Low bore axis looks like this thing will be super easy to put fast hits on target. Most other striker fired pistols have a high bore axis. Sig and H&K much more than glock. Will be interesting to shoot it and see how it handles
