Remains to be seen.

I don't think it's fair to draw such a conclusion right now. Oracle has certainly generated a lot of attention, and it's on them to follow through.

Their product is very distinguishable from the H9 in that it seeks to capitalize on the success and popularity of an existing platform (the double stack 1911) by trying to "fix" one of its shortcomings (the magazine).

I for one, hope it works and works well.

I get what you are saying, the low bore axis/low recoil quest has been going on for a while. several platforms have fail in that quest (Hudson H9, Archon type B, etc). all I'm saying is that oracle is not going to revolutionize the industry. there are other platforms that are doing the same thing for less and others that are just plain good (Staccato. I hope Oracle has great success as it is in this country best interest that companies do well but unfortunately I don't see this platform doing well but this is just my opinion. let me be clear it is not good when an American gun company fails that is the last thing I want.

It's not going to do well with the people that are in a race to the bottom for price at the cost of quality. The people who will tell you a Girsan is as good as a Prodigy is as good as a Staccato is as good as a Nighthawk.

The way this gun is specced for small parts and the way they are fitted will be a good factor in the cost/benefit analysis.

Using a less finicky magazine is a plus. I've said in other threads (and maybe earlier in this one) that the unintended consequences of having to alter frame geometry where it matters (between the rails) is a big question mark. It will probably take a while to sort that out in scale.

If this gun is reliable and they can hold to their quoted price points, they'll sell as many of them as they can make.
