6" Korth PRS 45ACP Login/Join

I picked this up a few weeks back. As ugly as it is, they are extremely well built and attention to detail and refinement are incredible. While the lower half is basically a 1911, the upper assembly is completely different. The design is that of a roller delay blowback. This one has a fixed 6" barrel. The trigger is light and crisp.

Korth didn't build many of these and I'm not sure if they're even still in production. This example was built in 2014.

Enjoy the pics. Anybody have one of these?

Congratulations on a fantastic addition to the family

I think 2014 is when they were introduced. It was that January that I fired on for the first time. I found it to be beautifully accurate and very easy to shoot

Here is a short KORTH video. Like all things KORTH, it is done with a dramatic flair.

What a gorgeous and interesting gun. I'll likely never see one in person...appreciate you sharing the pics! Any chance you could post a photo of the roller delay mechanism?

Very nice pistol. Korth makes great guns. I’m very fond of their revolvers.

Not my cup of tea but I am sure it was exquisitely made.

Very interesting pistol. I wouldn’t say ugly...more “industrial” in design maybe?




If you like religion, laws or sausage, then you shouldn't watch them being made.

That needs to be in the movies! Badass pistol. I can see Arnold pulling it out of a shoulder holster...

They're ok if you like gorgeous, well built guns and I DO. Very Nice. It's amazing at how tight/well matched the slide to frame fit is from the rear pic.

What kind of finish is on the pistol if I may ask?

Very nice. My pork and beans lifestyle can only drool at your very nice indulgence. I bet it shoots real nice.

Man is that a work of art.

When you say the lower half is basically a 1911, just how similar is it?

Can one interchange 1911 parts, fire control, mags, grips?

I’ve seen Korth revolvers before and they are beautiful. I’ve never seen a semi-auto from korth before so thank you for sharing.

I've only ever seen these "Cort" semis in picture form. A couple of years ago through Google I tried finding a dealer anywhere in the country who actually had a NIB example in any of its barrel configurations in stock...couldn't do it. The Korth USA website hadn't been updated in 15 years or so at the time, making identifying any authorized dealer near impossible at best. Korth had by that time signed up Nighthawk to handle distributing one or two different revolver designs, but nada on the PRS. Seems like a very infrequent gun to come by; congrats on your 'get'.

A question for BAC1023,

Do you shoot your firearms (At least the really nice, collectible stuff, that I LOVE when you post) or are they purely collectable industrial art if you will.

I don't ask that in a judgmental way as I can totally see the allure in simple ownership as art. I am just curious if you do run a few rounds through these some times.

As always take care, shoot safe and keep these wonderful toys coming, please and thank you.

Chris

Korth USA was never affiliated with Korth. They were completely separate. No Nighthawk only brings in revolvers. I don’t even think the PRS is still in production.

Korth made another semi auto back when the shop was in Ratzeburg. I’ve got a couple of those. Unlike the PRS, the early Korth Autopistol used a falling block locking system somewhat similar to the Walther P38. They are extreme high quality.

Thanks for sharing this. I really like it. Robocop fan here, so kind of looks like what he might have received as a gift from the department on his retirement.

On a serious note, I have question that would be nice if you can answer. I have handled Korth Revolvers, but never have experienced shooting one. So please forgive the following question if it is foolish.

Have you had the opportunity to shoot a classic Sig 220 X6 in 45 ACP from the Mastershop?

If so, how would you compare it to any semi auto Korth's that you may have also shot? Are they even in the same realm of workmanship and accuracy?

Thank you.

I don't shoot them all. I may out a mag or two through the PRS, but its more of a collectible for me.

I do buy a lot of shooters though. Here are some of my more recent acquisitions for range use.



CZ Shadow 2 Orange







FK BRNO Field Pistol







CZ Czechmate







Phoenix Redback







Atlas Gunworks Hyperion







Sig Sauer P210 Super Target







Salient Strike One







Pardini GT-9







Walther Q5 Match SF Pro







Arex Rex Alpha







Beretta 92X Performance

Good question for sure. I own many Mastershop pistols and I'm a huge fan. Accuracy wise, some can definitely hang with the PRS or get close. From a workmanship standpoint, Korth is most definitely a few steps above them, as nice as the Sigs are.

Here's my P220 X-Six
