Got my 45 Tactical

Post by Deathmaster » 30 Jan 2012, 09:04

I was on the fence between the 45 Tactical and a PS90 (in OD green to match my Five-Seven). I decided to go 45 Tactical because it would be a little cheaper... silly me.

I ended up buying the 45 for $969 (plus tax) at the Mesquite Rodeo Gun Show then (obviously) dumped another $450 on a Trijicon RMR (w/battery, no on/off) for it. What an awesome set-up. I had it zero'd perfectly but then noticed the RMR was so loose it was almost ready to fall off (after 100 rounds). So, after some blue Lock-Tight on the screws I am ready to shoot it again.

A full report and pics later in the week. This is probably of of the coolest guns in my collection now. Just an awesome weapon.

I will post-up some pics tonight guys. It is a very cool looking set-up. I haven't posted pics here before. I need to figure out if I need to host somewhere else or if I can post up directly.

Nice! I worked too late to take pics. Hopefully, tonight I will have time. Mine is black and my Five-Seven is OD Green. Thanks for helping me out bro!

Death, you are one of the fortunate.

She's beautiful.

Have fun.

Yes. That plate comes with the gun and is specifically designed for the RMR.
