I've been going down the Forgotten Weapons rabbit hole during the Covid-19 lockdown.

This particular gun and accessories cost $887 in 1981. That would have bought four Model 19s.

Thanks for the well made review. This gun is near vaporware, like the mythical Seacamp .32. It looks to be a 1970s effort to make the smallest .45 ACP and damn the expense or practicality. It's like a 20th century Derringer so I can see why American Derringer sold it. The video really required some firing to see if this kludge would work at all. As the presenter notes, made obsolete by the development of the compact high capacity 9mm. The same way the Browning High Power, with 13 rounds and a cartridge that penetrates, made obsolete the model 1911. How many Chief J-frames could be bought back then for $800 simoleons? The reason it's forgotten I suppose. A solution in search of a problem. Or worshiping at the throne of the .45ACP.
