Subcompact Power: .45 ACP, .40 S&W, and .357 SIG Guns
The .357 SIG Glock 33 was an accurate powerhouse, and Springfield’s Ultra Compact .45 ACP handled the best. But S&W’s .40 S&W S990L had trouble feeding hollowpoints.
Recently we received a letter from a subscriber who asked us to compare a small .45 ACP 1911 pistol to some of todays more popular options in the category of subcompact pistols. Keynotes of comparison were action design, similar size, and similar stopping power. Also, our reader wanted us to compare the speed and integrity of fundamental controls other than the trigger. A concealed-carry gun may never be reloaded during a confrontation, but you wouldnt want to drop the magazine by accident or fumble releasing the slide.
