If you get one, best to keep loads in the range of 200 grain bullet at around 725-750 fps.  Those things are a nightmare to find parts for. 
In my book a pioneer is a man who turned all the grass upside down, strung bob-wire over the dust that was left, poisoned the water, cut down the trees, killed the Indian who owned the land and called it progress.  Charles M. Russell

They are kind of fun to shoot, though.  A friend of mine brought his to a local match and we got to shoot it.  He doesn't work it hard, though.

Watched this as soon as it was posted. Had no idea they had a pistol in 45 acp before the 1911. The things you learn keep you searching.
