The 50 GI is a little intriguing, but when .45ACP +P can push 230 grains at ~1000 fps I am just not sure it is worth another type ammo.

I agree. But am definitely interested to see what they have up their sleeve.
Yeah but 300grn @ 875 that expands to inch or better is quite a difference, with the same recoil you will get with a 230grn +P

Touché. I think it's cool if you've got the extra coin laying around! I've never had the pleasure of shooting the round myself and knowing me I would probably see the "need" for one after shooting it. However, if I'm ever in a predicament where I need more than +p 45acp, I've gotten myself into quite the pickle or pissed the wrong person off!

Hey PaulM it is not for everyone. But most everyone that has shot one is hooked.

Well you've got me excited. I love GI and the cool stuff they have done with their 1911s. I don't own a 50 GI, but if I had a lotta cash laying around I wouldn't hesitate to get into that caliber. I currently carry a GI NN CCO .45 every single day and absolutely love the little pistol. I've got another GI on order; an M2 .45 with some custom touches that I'm real excited about taking delivery of! Come to think of it, it should be done any day now!!

Can't wait to see what's new at the end of the year (damn it's ALREADY almost the end of this year!).

Based on the article I'd say they made a 50gi that pretty much fit within the regular dimensions of a standard 1911. Otherwise what would be the point of the following paragraph? or am I way off base? either way, its cool and all; but I don't need one.

"At that point Alex may have seen me starting to shift in my seat and squirm a bit, so he handed me another 1911. Like the others it was beautifully made, with a very workmanlike finish and look, a serious gun for serious work. I ran the slide and my spidey-sense went to alert. What was that difference I was feeling, I wondered? It felt slightly “chunky” for a lack of a better description. Something was different in how the slide felt when I ran it but I couldn’t put my finger on it. I looked at Alex, raising my right eyebrow, like Mr. Spock used to do. Saying both “What?” and “Hmmmm” at the same time."

Its got to be something around the way the action is build. My best three guesses are:
- lug-less lock-up
- tiny ball bearings in the slide
- ak47 action inside a 1911 slide, foolproof

The mags are beefier, but the rest of the gun is pretty much a standard 1911 already
