Boberg XR45-S Development Update

Last March, I posted a story about the next potential pistol from Boberg Arms.  While similar to the XR9-S and L 9mm pistols, Arne is upping the power factor and building a 45 Auto this time around.  From the previously released drawings, we learned that the XR45-S will have the following specs:
Length is about 5.75"
Height is about 4.4"
Width is about 1.084
Slide width is about 1.084"
Capacity is 6+1
Barrel Length is planned at 3.7"
Length is about 5.75"
Height is about 4.4"
Width is about 1.084
Slide width is about 1.084"
Capacity is 6+1
Barrel Length is not shown on the drawing, but Arne said 3.7" - See more at: http://mousegunaddict.blogspot.com/2013/03/a-sneak-peek-at-boberg-45-acp-xr45-s.html#sthash.SU64THIP.dpuf

Arne Boberg treated us to a rendering of the XR45-S last week.  Aside from the markings on the slide, it would be difficult to tell the 45 Auto from the 9mm.  

He also posted two pictures of the new 45 Auto magazine displayed next to the current 9mm magazine.   The difference is more obvious in this case. 

I think it's really cool that Arne posts stuff like this on his Boberg Arms Forum.   I'm  not sure how many other manufacturers let you be an insider as they progress through the process of building a new gun.  If you aren't a forum person, you can always follow Boberg Arms on their Facebook Page.
