    Ok here's the requirements:

    Barrel no longer than 4.25"
    Mag capacity of 10 or more
    Must be 45ACP not 45GA

    Any and all suggestions welcome.

    Too big. I'm thinking more along the lines of a G30s or so. I'm just wondering what else is out there that can compare in size

    xD 45. I almost bought one if I hadn't used up my $ in ammo.

    Can be had for $500 in the secondary market.

    Consider a CZ97 if you can find one. All steel gun. Very well made.

    Mag capacity is at 10, should be 13 for its size in my opinion. Not a big deal though.

    Barrel length is a tad more than you want at 4.8, but again give it a check.

    Also comes in a decocker model with the designation "BD" explore the site.

    Other obvious suggestions would be a Glock 21 or 30, a Springfield XD or XDM...lots of options there and they're great pistols, or S&W M&P. If you're willing to come down on mag capacity also look at a older Sig 220.

    I have a new XDm Springfield Armory .45 ACP 3.8 and I like it a lot.

    I recommend it :)

    I ordered 8 additional magazines from the mother ship Jan 19th and received them yesterday. Four 9 capacity and Four 13 round capacity with the number 2 extensions on them. There are very high quality polished stainless.

    It's a great company in my view. Be sure to consider them.

    Beretta PX4 with the 10-rds mag. It comes with a 9-rds flat bottom mag and 10-rds protruded bottom mag.

    Oh yes, cheap as hell. You should be able to find one NIB out the door for $550 or less.

    PX4 on top and Cougar at the bottom.

    M&P 45 is a great weapon 10 rounds, 4 in or 4.5 inch barrel.

    Asking in GT is very biased. G21 and if possible G30, not G30S.

    Everyone posted something of some value, then there's you. Please enlighten us on what exactly it is that I "already know" what I want.
