    Are these the ones that don't use 1911 Mags?

    Correct - they use proprietary 8 round S&W 945 mags. I have 3. Just bid on 2 more - right now they are about $100 a crack.

    It's a great shooter, extremely accurate if I do my part. The one thing I would change - the trigger is too light. It's way too easy too accidently fire 2 shots with one intended trigger pull. It could never be a carry gun "as is".

    That Hi Power is a classic.

    I had a Browning Hi Power and a BDM back in the day. Wish I still had them.

    Now I want to get a more modern MKIII version to send to Wayne Novak. My S&W 4506 was overhauled by his crew, and it's amazing.

    Nice Rohrbaugh. The recoil on those things is brutal. Have you shot it much?

    Holy crap, $100 per? Reminds me of buying Glock Mags during the 94 AWB.

    I remember those 945's back in the day. Thought they were a cost alternative to a 1911, but never had the scratch back then to buy anything. Nice to see them still floating around!

    Brutal is an accurate description. Yes, I try to put some rounds through it every time I hit the range, since I constantly carry it. You can can put about 50 rounds down range before you have next-day pain. I made the mistake of shooting approximately 75 rounds through it the first time I took it to the range. Hand was sore for a few days after. It's definitely not a range toy; it's all business.

    That said, they are very well made, almost custom crafted. It has the smoothest DAO trigger of any gun I own, and that's saying something. You do have to resolve the recoil spring every 200 rounds but that's no big deal. I have several them stocked up, plus Wolff stocks them as well.

    I was in the same boat - I wanted one badly, but lacked the funds. This gun was made in 2000, I got it from a guy on GB. He was super-nice, let me make 2 payments on it. I think I bought it in about 2005-2006. Should have bought more mags then, they were only about $25.
