    Another 1911? Yuck.

    Short barreled 1911? Double yuck.

    Can anyone make these pistols lighter and smaller that CCW peeps forget they’re packing?..

    The 1911 market is saturated, but they wouldn’t be coming out with new 1911’s every year if nobody was buying them.

    hum.. it’s not an ar.. great
    oh it’s a 1911…it’s been done.

    where’s the innovation?
    (oh yeah, we want 1911s and ars)

    i guess we’ll never be happy.

    Fatboy Lightweight? Who on earth would name the gun “Fatboy”?

  • TZH

    I handled this thing before. felt nice. looked OK.

    I think it would live in my man-purse or my drawer.

  • El Duderino

    So…the Fatboy is a 10 shot double stack? It’s hard to tell.

      12 and one in chamber

    The Fatboy is pretty neat – proprietary double stack 12 round magazine. I have owned the original fatboy (non lightweight) for about 6 months. Having read a ton of negative feedback on various forums about both double stack and short slide 1911s before purchasing, I’ve been incredibly surprised with *my* gun’s reliability. Granted I’ve only put a couple hundred rounds (including cheap Tula crap) through the thing, but still – it has yet to malfunction.
