Sci-fi future 1911. I think it looks pretty neat, but with a MSRP of $1,147 and it being a brand new company, I don't see myself getting one any time soon.

There's a whole bunch of empty space inside the frame, under the barrel. Why? Just to look cool? This would make carrying the gun as hard as carrying a normal pistol with a light, without the benefit of having a light.

Why, in an age of PPQs and VP9s, would anyone think wide, flat front- and backstraps make any ergonomic sense?

This is a silly, silly thing.

  I'd like to bring everyone's attention to a gun that isn't the same old modified-Browning lockup, striker-fired firearms industry hive-mind bullshit, and which is actually good at being a gun.

Okay HOLD UP. How the fuck am I gonna use a weapon light on this?


That's where the guide rod and spring go, friendo. Flat backstrap is to appease 1911 fanboys who complain about Glocks. (And probably also suck at guns so they make excuses why they can't shewt gud)

You are getting into MK23 territory now

If you look at the video disassembly part, they show the spring & guide rod is actually fairly small and below a seemingly empty space.

Could just be that they're hiding their proprietary recoil management doohikey from teh internetz for now (think of the FK 7.5 pistol's design).

A 1911 with a lowered bore axis? I'd like to shoot one and see.

shit nvm i see a 40 on the slide
>> No. 102403 ID: b12f5b
It isn't a 1911. It shares some of the controls, and grip angle, and maybe some of the aesthetic design curves, but the operating mechanism is nowhere close to a 1911, or even a striker fired 1911, or even a polymer framed 1911.

It lacks the pivot link recoil mechanism, and the locking surface is on the ejector cutout rather than inside the slide. I kinda dislike saying it's anything like a 1911 when to the user's perspective, the grip angle and shape are about the owner things similar. Even then, the features it is combining don't seem to make it unique enough to warrant my attention at least.

It has a 1911 style trigger (straight pull) but it's more like a Glock safe trigger. I think this pistol is a Glock with 1911 ergonomics

A few straight Glock triggers now (salient, agency, suarez) too
>> No. 102408 ID: fde504

straight trigger =/= straight pull, though.

The movement of the trigger

One is the axis of motion while the other simply gives it a lighter perceived pull (while in reality remaining the same).

Handled one today.

Fantastic gun, great trigger. However, one major issue I could see...

With the trigger safety pad pivot pin off center and the low pull weight, this gun is very unlikely to be drop safe. Look into why the first Ruger SR9's where recalled. No grip safety, despite the looks.

They will have reversible mag releases, optional manual safeties, and interchangeable(ish) backstraps. S&W 5906 mags can be converted to fit it.

It's got a good story behind it.

Very, very cool. I'm getting one as soon as it hits the MD roster.... which could take a while...
>> No. 102541 ID: 1519ac
Do you think it's likely they have gotten this far in the manufacturing process without testing it for drop safety? Not being snarky just asking.

I'm absolutely sure they've done extensive testing and are 100% certain it's drop safe. I even casually brought it up when I was speaking to them at their booth and the assured me it was.

That being said, don't you think a company as large as Ruger also did just as much if not vastly more testing before they released something as massive as their new SR9 line of pistols? Look what happened there.

Ruger had to relocate the trigger insert pivot pin to the center of the trigger. Early ones where off center and caused it to automatically disengage when dropped, much like this H9.

There's testing in house and with an R&D team, and then there's releasing them to the market for the masses to find out themselves. One idiot can easily prove an entire R&D team wrong and it only takes one unfortunate issue where all the impossibly unlikely odds just happened to be in fates favor to cause a recall. A massive recall for a new company with a new product could ruin them.

Take what I'm saying with a grain of salt, I haven't even taken one apart let alone know more than their designers. However, after handling one I couldn't help but think it may be a possibility. Companies usually learn from the mistakes of others when making something new.
>> No. 102543 ID: 96b303
Valid concerns raised indeed. Since the design seem to not be drop safe, do we know if the H9 has a striker safety, like a Glock for example (where even if the striker somehow falls, it is prevented from hitting the primer unless the trigger is actually pressed)? I'll be honest, I'm not sure if a striker safety of that type would actually work with that particular trigger. In any case I know it isn't really a solution to the issue, but I could see a company making that compromise.

Not saying it's correct, but I'm wondering if that's what they did.

Perhaps some part of their FCG prevents firing when dropped in another way that isn't apparent to the first glance. Perhaps Hudson can be contacted so that some light can be shed on the issue.
