It's not often that we see a new design enter the market, so I thought I'd post about this:
>short recoil
>locked breech
>"internal" slide
>centerfire pistol

Plenty of what I'd call questionable design choices, but it's the action itself which seems interesting to me. Not it's current implementation.

If nothing else, the way this works changes how hand positioning and trigger systems are implemented. You could design your hand to ride much higher, thus causing more "in line" recoil. Potentially leading to better recoil management.

Manual of arms is obviously quite different from what we are used to today.

  Strange looking thing...
>> No. 105644 ID: 241b9d
  But there's some obvious advantages (and disadvantages) to the general design of this.

Neat. Obviously still a prototype but real interesting. I mean, especially in pistol calibres, you don't really need terribly much meat actually behind the barrel. I'm kinda surprised no one else has bothered to explore this concept before.

>Extraordinary pistol, hand built by George A. Wilson of Pennsylvania back in the 1960’s. Mr. Wilson, a designer for High Standard, designed & patented this pistol and was granted a patent in 1961. He had actually built SN 1 back in 1959, which he used to win an NRA tournament.

> have long wondered if Dan Love would ever get his passion project, the DL45 semiauto pistol, off of the ground. I saw his prototype when he publicly displayed it at the 2013 Brownells Gunsmith Conference & Job Fair., but foolishly, I didn't get any photos.

>Dan Love is best known for his firearms engraving for other gunsmiths like Hamilton Bowen. He also provided Texas Longhorn Arms with the drawings of the No. 5 grip frame that he had personally acquired from Elmer Keith.

>Love has been infatuated with George A. Wilson's prototype target pistols for decades. Back in the 1980s, he wrote the various gun magazines that had previously featured the Wilson pistol in the 1960s in hopes of tracking down the current owners. However, it was decades too late for anyone to really help. Several years ago, he even started posting to Internet gun forums in an attempt to track down the pistols. By this point, he had already begun work on his own design, but he wanted to see exactly how Wilson had configured certain parts.

Now that you post it, I feel like an idiot. I've actually seen that vid years ago.

>By this point, he had already begun work on his own design, but he wanted to see exactly how Wilson had configured certain parts.

Ah, so it's similar, but not identical. It'd be interesting to know if he eventually got his hands on one or not.

Yep, that's the first thing that went through my mind when I saw the OP.
