Para Ordnance Warthog
From the Para Ordnance Website:
It is a stunningly effective handgun. This is the original super-compact .45 pistol with truly awesome firepower. There is no smaller, more powerful 1911-style, 10+1 semi-auto .45 ACP in the world.
Product Code: WHX1045R
Caliber: .45 ACP
Weight: 24 oz.
Sights: Night Sights
Finish: IONBOND / ANODIZE
The Warthog is pretty awesome. A small and compact version of the 1911 but with 10+1 rounds of hard hitting .45 ACP. The safety works just like the 1911 as well as most of the features.
The grip is very fat to accommodate the double stacked magazine so if you have small hands the Warthog might not be for you.
Surprisingly the recoil is very tame for such a short barrel and large caliber. The recoil spring is very strong and you can feel it when you go to manually pull the slide back. Weak hands may want to pass on this gun.
Bottom line is the Warthog is a great back up or CCW gun.
