Took me 6 months to find one. I also live in a fascist state so finding a Massachusetts "compliment" 45c was even more difficult.
But found and bought one about a month ago and couldn't be more pleased. Excellent size for a carry gun in 45 acp.

I stumbled onto one during the height of the craziness in flat dark earth. After adding an Apex kit, it's fast becoming one of my favorite pistols. Although it's listed as a compact, it really isn't. I'd consider it more of a Commander size, but to me it's just the right size. Mine is comfortable to shoot, and is accurate. If you can find one, jump on it, you won't be disappointed. This is a pic next to a 40FS.

The 45 and 45c have always been more difficult to find. I guess they are not as popular as the 9/40/357 guns. Keep scouring the web. They're out there. Don't forget to check the used gun places like the classified section here.

I've had mine two years now. Bought it locally. Didn't realize they were hard to find. Fine weapon although I would consider it to be mid sized, about like my old Sig P-6.

Default 45C

Wow didn't know there were that hard to find. I've had mine over two years. carried it quite a bit in a Crossbreed Supertuck.

I think I may have 500 rds through it now never have had a malfunction. I shoot hardball and wad cutter still does well with both.

I did put the apex kit in it asap and that made a huge difference.

I just didn't want to wait for months to get rid of that gritty trigger feel.

Good little pistol very easy to shoot and the recoil is darn good for a small .45 pistol.

I've had mine for about a year and a half, after Apexing everything it's definitely one of my favorite shooters! I didn't have any trouble finding mine, but that was before all of the current craziness....
