I've long been badly wanting a new Tactical Officer's Model .45 but just couldn't afford one. Well, I went to a gun show here in Branson, and with a bit of horse trading, I came home with something I think really nice. It's a brand new American Tactical Firepower Xtreme .45 Titan Light Weight. It is 5" high, 6.9" long, 3.3" Bull Barrel, weighs 24 oz., has a target trigger and low profile Novak sights, ambi safeties, and Mahogany grips. It's a little beast but it performs flawlessly in both slow and rapid fire. It's surprisingly quite accurate and I was really surprised that recoil is equal to a full sized 1911 no worse. Pretty impressive for such a small, light .45! It's very easy to conceal and a real pleasure to carry. To get any other Officer's Model with these features you would have to buy a high end custom job and pay over $1,000.00 so  I'm Happy Happy Happy! It's now my full time carry. :)

Norm are you sure you did not let a full size model out in the rain and it shrunk.  Lol  Look good.

I wish it were that easy Diganali. It took some serious horse trading to get it. It's what I wanted though and so far it has proved itself worthy. :)

Wow that has a short barrel. I wonder if you will get a lot of climb on it. Especially if you were to double tap it. I like the looks of it. I will be interested in the range report.
