    PC Shorty 45 MKII

    I recently obtained a Shorty 45 MKII. There is not alot of info out there about this pistol.

    It is very similar to my 4516-3, and in fact is a fancy 4513 with some extra bells and whistles fron the Performance Center. They are very nice bells and whistles indeed. Checkered front strap, Novak NS, Briley bushing, and what appears to me to be a Briley match barrel. The trigger rivals my well worn model 19. I have not shot it yet, but based on anecdotes from owners, I'm prepared to be impressed.

    I became aware of these pistols about eight years ago and have wanted one since. Fortunately I found a "shooter" grade and was able to finally afford one.

    The fit and finish on this gun is perfect. There is no overlap on any seam and not a tool mark to be found. It is far better than on any pistol I own, and equal to my HK's. The weight and size make this a perfect carry gun.

    Lew Horten said 225 made in the first run, and to call back Monday with the product code, for info on the Shorty 45 MKII. Alls I can say is S&W should have made alot more. Greedy as S&W is I can only guess the profit margin was slim on this model.

    Anyone have one of these, or it's dark cousin the 45 Recon? Regards 18DAI.

    Sounds like a Webley-Scott sort of thing. I don't do pictures, so I'm somewhat reluctant to ask for one. But, I wouldn't mind taking a peek if you were so inclined.
