That is for one of the first 500. Others they said will be a little less. How much I don't know.

5k for a new whiz bang pistol, no thanks. For that money I would have wilson build me my dream 1911.

The new Python has redesigned internals and it supposedly doesnít stack any more...feels more like a Smith.

One has to wonder how much their recommendations are driven by advertising revenue.

Oh yeah, forgot about the new python. I have one on order at my LGS, would be nice to actually have one to fire since my 67 is NIB and I don't even really handle it yet alone dry fire so I have really no idea what it feels like.

Least I will be to shoot the new one lol

Meh! Meh! And more Meh! On the plus side though, I'll be saving some money this year, as nothing new is of any interest to me. Well, the one exception might be the DW - but how that didn't make it to this 'questionable' list is a mystery to me!

As for that Alien at $5k - not no, but hell no! To be honest, though, above the $4k mark, the only thing pistol-wise that would ever blip on my radar is this.....

.... and even this hasn't pushed me to the breaking point, so anything else stands very, very little chance.

I think Walther is overcharging for the Q4. I won't pay that much money for even a steel framed Walther.

That should be under $1K. I would imagine in a year or more the prices will come down. I realize no one pays MSRP, but you can bet it will still be retailing for over a grand.

Friend of mine has the open class version of that, it's nice and feels great. Doesn't shoot flat compared to a 2011 though and the comp has issues unscrewing itself

That's interesting. With its design, I didn't think that was even possible. Anyway, different feel from a 2011 in more ways than one, but damn exquisite. Pricey, but exquisite. Can't say there's anything coming out of SHOT this year that is..... in a word..... 'exquisite'.

It's just a screw on comp on a threaded barrel lol, the gun is absolutely beautiful but it lags in terms of keeping up with the CZs and 2011s on the timer

The non open class version compares far more favorably in my opinion

I'm not a fan of comps, so I don't have that model. But, I thought it locked on, in addition to screwing on. The folks I know with them have never mentioned one coming lose. Regardless, the X5s are high on my list favorites. Never have been interested in 2011s, even after having shot a few. CZs, on the other hand, absolutely!!!!! Still can't understand why their list would skip the new one.

All marketing. Kinda like the Motor Trend Car of the Year. Which included such greats as the Vega, the Alliance, and other assorted junk.

I get excited by new concepts like the Alien, the rest are just more plastic or rehash.

PS
Why doesn't SIG USA sell what SIG makes for the EU or even Canada.

At first I was excited with the new Ruger Five Seven but then I decided I really didn't want to buy a pistol chambered in a cartridge whose cost per round is around 50 cents +/-.

The only nice gun on that list was the alien and itís not worth $5000. Iíll take a Wilson Combat over that anytime.

I'd find it hard to believe the DWX wouldn't make a top 10 list of new pistols.
Exactly.

Sounds like it was there, surely odd since it's the most exciting new gun in 2020 in my eyes.
