    Wilson made them for a short time and then stopped. Never heard anything good about them.

    nope, a flat trigger wouldn't even help how bad the ADP is. handled one in the gun shop, researched it, and read of the problems that they have.

    This gun is an import from South Africa, has been sold under the name Heritage by Tangfolio.

    ADP= Alex DuPlessis
    South African designer of the KZ-45 frame and the ADP

    I actually thought in the past of adding one of those to my odd pistol collection, but held off.

    It was never a real good pistol.

    Alex is/was the lead engineer at Wilson and I'm sure that's the only reason they put their name on it.

    Are you sure you have the right Alex? I know that Alex Zimmerman, owner of Guncrafter, used to be the lead engineer at Wilson. Unless there were 2 Alex's? :dunno:
