    Has anyone seen or shot this firearm? New line of pistols from a world class shop.

    What do you think? Time to crack the piggy bank?

    9mm and only 10 round mags?
    I'll stick with my 226.

    Let me know when they make it in a 45.

    They do make it in a 45 and is shoots fine. The light receiver makes it a little snappy though.
  6. I held it and wasn't impressed. I got a big hand and it don't feel right

    It appears to be another Glock clone. I'll stick to the original. :D

    I own 3 wilson 1911's and they are fine weapons but if you gave me that adp I would give it away the next day. It is one of the most asthetically unappealing firearms I have ever seen.

    Let me make a your name you are a 45 guy. Take that 600 bucks and buy you a Springfield XD-45. I have one and it is a super shooter. Extremely accurate, 300 rounds without a single malfunction, 13+1 of 45acp, pretty decent trigger and a much better looking gun asthetically. I am not a polymer pistol kind of guy but this gun has really changed my thinking.......and it's so darn fun to shoot. All this......for less than $600.00.

    Heres mine and some 25 yard targets:

    Actually...the XD tactical is on the "to buy list". It is nice to see another satisfied owner of the pistol.

    Tex 45, great shooting!! :D

    I just don't understand. If people want a Glock why don't they just buy one! :eek: They keep buying clones. Trust me the original is better!! It is...really it is!!! :D :D :D :D

    I would not hesitate to buy one of Bill Wilson's .45's; they are quality work, if a bit pricey!
    The pistol in the link may have come from his house, but is anything but a 'wilson' pistol, as I have come to know them; it will take a lot of 'field testing' to make it a real pistol, IMHO.

    This is the Truvelo from South Africa. Designed by Alex Du Plesis. Truvelo originally manufactured electronic equipment to be used by the S. African Traffic police, but then went into larger weaponry and eventually into small arms. Wilson has gotten the import rights to it. It is not a Wilson design. It comes in .380, 9mm, .40, and .45 . The ADP cartridge only applies to the .45 and is 1/16" or aprox. 2mm shorter than the regular .45 ACP. ADP stands for Advanced Defense Pistol. They were made around 1998 and do look remarkably like the Stealth mentioned in another thread above. The Stealth made it's debut in 1996, so there may be a connection.
    I don't know why he would import a S. African piece unless there is money to be made. I don't know if I would want to support the S. African economy. Plus, it can't be better than my Glock, and I paid way less than $600 for the Glock.
