They'll sell a bunch because it's the new hotness, however, firing pin breakage issues are starting to be reported. Not the tips like the initial 365's but a piece in the middle. I make it a habit to never purchase a new gun within a year of it being the new flavor-of-the-month. Let the bugs get worked out and let others be the beta-testers.

It will have to come down in price though to compete with the 365 which is the direct competition. And with the 365 being as low now as $399 on sale it will be hard to beat (now that the bugs have been worked out).

As far as SA itself, I don't own and have never owned one of their pistols. Nothing ever appealed to me to be honest. I have a Saint but that was traded for so SA had no direct benefit.

I'm gonna pass on the Hellcat also, but I've been shooting their Croatian pistols since the HS2000 days with good results.

As far as 1911s go I have a Range Officer and I agree when I hear it called

"A $2,000 gun that costs $800".

Yes there have been more strikers breaking. I will be sticking with my recent build P365!
