I spent some tie on the this forum and liked it, but I was hoping for a post about the PM45.
Since there was not one, I'll post mine and maybe smoke out other PM45 shooters and other
experience.

I've been a .45ACP lover and shooter since I got my dad's WWII souvenir 1911. My autopistols have almost all been that Browning pattern, stock and with numerous enhancements. Had a couple of AMT .45backups one of which cracked the barrel lug & broke my taste for that weapon. Been looking for a small .45 for CCW and finally got my PM45. Got it from Cylinder & Slide, and had them do a little work on it - action job, carry bevels, etc.

The function of the pistol was flawless! I took it to the range a few days ago but only ran 40 rounds thru it. Not the weapon's fault, just my trick back that doesn't like standing for very long. Plus I ran the other ten thru my Kimber Custom Shop Ultra CDP for comparison. When I fired the PM45 I was reminded of those AMTs I had - the bark and the recoil certainly let me know that I had a handful! It wasn't really uncomfortable, though, not as harsh as I'd expected. Especially from such a lightweight pistol. The only negative to report is that I was consistently printing low and left at ten yards. The RO suggested that the long DA trigger can cause that. My fault, not the weapon's.:embarrassed: I'm looking forward to working on it! Neat little pistol that meets all my wants.

I've shot 50 thru my Cw45 and was pleasantly surprised on all accounts. I had not shoot a 45 until this one. What surprised me the most was the accuracy. At 7-10 yards I had a nice pattern and and several bullseyes when I paid attention to business. The trigger I really liked. Nice and smooth and easy to pull. I changed trigger spring in the CM and like it but at this time early in I'm not even thinking spring change in the CW.
I know you were wanting PM feedback but thought I'd get the ball rolling.

Anxious to get home and shoot more 45's thru it. I'm looking for my ordered holster for it any day as it was mailed before Christmas.

Thanks for the comments, folks. I was REALLY fond of the AMT .45 Backups, but when the one cracked the barrel underlug I put 'em both on the shelf. I dunno what would happen it the lug gave way while firing, but I'd sure hate for it to happen when I was depending on the pistol!! Maybe all that would cause would be locking the gun up, but at that point you're just holding a fancy rock.

The PM45 seems like a perfection of that AMT concept.
