    I looked at a Springfield Micro~Compact w/ a 3" barrel today. SWEET! I think it would carry better than my G23 thatís why I looked. But it cost twice the price. Ouch!

    We have the Raptor II 5", the Raptor Pro 4" (SWMBO has informed me that the Pro is "hers" ) and the Ultra Raptor 3". All have been great, and they are darn accurate. Replaced all the grips with the Hogue rubber grips with finger grooves. We've been using stock Kimber mags without any problems.

    Hi 2400,

    I've got a Springfield Ultra Compact Hi-cap (3").
    It's totally reliable, go's bang every time---nice gun with a bull bbl, but I can't hit a barn with it. (probably just me, although I shoot a 4" & 5" pretty well).

    I have a Colt Defender. I have had no problems with FTF or FTE. It is the only one I can recommend.

    This one is as good as my 5" any where up to 50 feet. (have not tried it beyond that) Smooth as silk-no issues-have 1500 rounds thru it, time for new recoil springs so I don't have any issues.



    Kimber eclipse with full Kimpro finish.

    3" Tactical works great with both Kimber mags(with Wilson 47D Springs and followers), and Wilson Mags

    3" Full Frame

    In one of the other forums, a fellow ask if any one had ever seen a 3" on a full frame bobtail-- or if anyone made one

    Here was my reply:

    Don't know of anyone who makes one but if they did,,This is what it would look like. The frame is a CDP pro CARRY that I bobtailed and the slide is from my ULTRA ECLIPSE. Got me thinking so my stainless bobtail and ultra may end up being a 3" BOBTAIL AND A COMPACT

    Yep. Look at the Kimber Ultra Carry in stainless. You'll be very happy with the gun. No jams, failures etc. so far.

    My Para Ordinance Covert Carry in 3" barrel has shown itself to be reliable and accurate. But I've had good luck with short 1911s.

    3" barrel

    I've got a Detonics Combat Master. No functioning problems, but racking the slide, with its double recoil spring, requires spending some time in the gym.
