    Well I would hope a 3,000 dollar gun would distinguish itself from a 400 dollar one a bit more. It reminds me of the PT1911. I'm sure pt 1911s work fine.

    Never even held a Predator, but can gaurantee, without a doubt, that side by side there's a 1000% difference between the two pistols. It looks like a Taurus, because it's a 1911. Once again... :upeyes:

    Interesting looking piece.

    The frame reminds me of knedrgr's Remsport.

    I don't recognize the Matt Burkett name, tho', so unless they have a 100% satisfaction guarantee, I'd find it difficult to drop that much cash on one without a hands-on first.

    Proabably a solid gun, just doesn't do anything for me at the price though.

    He is an action pistol shooter and they do come with a good warranty. read through the description. The gun comes with instruction from the Predator team and a complete refinishing.
