@Crazy Shooter............No wonder if I was the first one to reply on this query! ;)

We have quite a number of threads on this gun, but I agree, most of those threads are announcements/acquisitions, perhaps only few are queries. :)

So while at it, just a few brief facts on the PT 145.

The PT 145:

Shooting/accuracy:

1) Being a subcompact carry gun, it still has a reasonably accurate point-score at CQB range of up to 10 mtrs.

The very purpose of this gun - "Jaan bechaana aur finaah kar dehna"- with a 230 grs ROCK of a projectile is also best served at this range.

For reference, watch Gilani Sb's review as per following link:

http://www.pakguns.com/forum/viewtopic.php?pid=139937#p139937

And if my modest shooting could prove anything, whatsoever, an amateurs hand, this chart:

Enough on the shooting, I think.

2) Reliability:

I can speak for myself only, so let me first of all tell you a bit of a secret, that only few of our members and best friends here have known so far, that my present PT 145 is my 2.nd one!

First one was simply purchased from me at "gunpoint point blanc" by a very close family friend and uncle of mine, who just couldn't resist it's feel and never let it go out of his hands when he first held it, during a meet with me! I returned home empty handed, with a cheque for full amount, yet after a prior call to the dealer first securing that he had more of them in stock! :lol:

And both of these guns, the initial and the latest with a combined firing history of some 150 shots so far, have given NIL ISSUES, NO FTE'S, NO FTF'S, with both FMJ's and JHP's.

Thus, reliability is on the "HIGH" level, rest assured, and I'm sure Denovo bro would come in with supporting comments on above qualities as well.

Finally, it's a highly concealable gun, you'll have the best of ccw experience with. My suggestion is just - and it looks and feels much better at hands in reality, than on the pics - plz don't show it around too much! It looks and feels more of a "space weapon" kind of a gun, and people just can't put it down, once into their hands. :)

Enough from me, let Den, Abbas come forth with more valuable comments, since the two senior most gurus both had inspired me for it, above was just the essence of my experience with it. :) Regards.

AK47 brother thanks for your fast reply :) but you forgot to mention the price :P

@Crazy shooter...... My pleasure. :)

Price is variable, according to city and availability. You won't find it in Rwp/Isl range. I can't say about Peshawar, but it will be a rare find there even.

As per recent info, there are 2 pieces left in Lhr, and I believe it should be available @60-62K, +/- 1-2K, as per bargaining skills. :)

@Aquarius....Salaams Dr. Sb. Well, this issue has been discussed at length between myself and Denovo bro, and we both came to the conclusion that it's a matter of practice and habit of the individual hand, whichsoever of these that you get best used to. Marginal difference, if any, I personally prefer SA/DA mode more. The DA only model was a Gen. 2 version, and is hard to come by now in the era of Gen. 3. Regards.

Nice to see an other POTENTIAL PT145 owner :) CS bro, since brother AK already given his verdict I just will say WELCOME TO THE PT145 CLUB,
My verdict; if you need something small to conceal, punch of 45acp with 10 chances to take care of any situation and well controllable recoil then go for it .

Brother CS, those are two totally different things. Now, you mention that you don't need for concealment, then the PT 145 is out of the question, totally.

Now, come to the 97B. Well, for kind of collection completeness and in case one does already have other full framed cal .45's, I would deem it a fit acquisition.

Yet, may I ask you, what on earth makes you prefer this one over the 1911, unless you already have a 1911? The extra 2 rounds?

I'd strongly suggest the 1911, and rest assured I can and will give you proper reasons on why, once I receive your feedback.

I'm sure Den can too, yet he would like to leave it to me! ;)

And what about 845

Only now has the 845 appeared in the market.. While i don't know if any one here has purchased it or not. But based on what I read on forums. Its plagued with reliability issues.
..
