I am a big fan of .45 caliber. I carry Glock 21 in this caliber. I chose it over HK USP for its durabilty and the well know torture test it went through, successfully.

In addition, you can really find lots of accessories for Glock such as FSSG, Stock, Safety lever, internal laser, M3 combo, night sights, etc.

I would like to know what do you guys prefer in .45 and why?

I like the Taurus 24/7 Pro .45 ACP. It's very compact and performs surprisingly well for a sub Rs. 70 K pistol. 10+1 shot, low recoil and the reliability is much better than the 9mm 24/7 which I just keep because it looks so damn good :)

I have Glock 30SF. I think it's decent pistol. You can not go wrong with it.

Why it does not surpirse me?

I thought you were done with Sig220 and now wanted the 1911 platinum Sig or the HK45?

1911A1 is true house for this cartridge as both were designed each other by JMB. it is very well proven design, very slim, very reliable( it was designed for ball cartridge). have best trigger on any auto YMMV. i dont like DA/SA trigger a lot. it has adequate safety to be carried with a round in pipe.
@ firepower dont make that COLT wall hanger you mentioned in other thread. you have a huge assortment of guns mashallah, but it is a fine auto with a class.

well i am looking for a new 1911 45 but so far unable to find one. Kimber was available but it was sold quickly. Very hard to get em here. I dont want them for CCW since i am not a big fan of cocked and locked. I am trying to get an import permit for 10 npb weapons. If i get it, i will get top of the line 1911 to date imported.
The colt ihave is very old and not safe to rely on any more. Guns on my wall such as scorpio steckin luger mauser etc they all work. the problem is that threre not many true collectors around who can encourage and support each other and appreciate collections. Most kids around are well just kids.

My favorites

1. HK USP .45
2. Glock 21
3. Wilsom Combat 1911
4. FNP-45
5. Hk MK 23

I own 1-3.

The best .45 ACP pistol that I've shot was a MK23.

My friend Ahmad, I could not have stated it better.

Though the Glock 21 is a close 2nd. The USP Tactical a close 3rd.

Thanks steven, i have more than ten hand guns right now, but my old beaten 1911 is flag ship of all hand guns. The problem is 1$ a pop is way out of my reach.

Wasif. Norinco was available at Orient Traders Lahore and i believe asking price was 55K. I do warn you that its finishing is pathetic.

Salam All,
A Colt is a Colt... is a Colt!!! All others clones. I have owned since 1986, one Colt Combat Elite .45 (not talking about the commander), it is fully accessorized with: 30LPI checkering front strap, Bo-Mar full adj sights, Wilson Recoil Rod, Ed Brown beavertail, Smith & Alexander flat mainspring housing, EGW tactical ambi safeties, Videcki Trigger, Wolf Spring SETS, Springfield Armory Quadra Comp, Wilson magazines with basepads, Aherends grips, Chip McCormick hammer and sear, Briley Spherical bushing barrel, It was throated by Wilson (called the reliability package). And I used to shoot APSA, IPSC, USPSA matches with it. I have the trophies still on the wall of my home. It is the best gun.
A true diehard .45 is not a complete package made by one company, its a mixture of parts and accessories made by many top purist gunsmiths like Wilson, Ed Brown, Les Bauer, Chip McCormik, Briley, La Rocca, Clarks, Caspian, Olympic Arms, Ogelsby and Ogelsby, Nowlin, Jarvis, and so forth; 1911 is probably the only weapon for which unlimited accessories are available, you think it - its already out there for sale. Each is renowned for making a specific part which put them on the map. Each used to purchase parts from the other to make one complete package.
I know this that once the .45 bug bites, every other gun becomes secondary, the 1911 is a cult classic and has the most loyal of followers.

I believe that the HK USP Tactical is more of a common man version of the Mark 23 - not to say that there is ANYTHING common about the USP Tactical :D

@KageFox - +1 you are right as its a newer design. There are many features on the USP Tactical not found on the MK23.

Norinco 1911 is available at Hussain & Brothers (khi) 0300 205 6452 for 40K
I just bought a Taurus 1911SS from Para Company (lhr) for 75K

But the Norinco is not real 1911, it has a double stack magazine (poor finish).
