I was stationed outside of Trabzon at a US Air Force security site 45 years ago. The experience led to a lifelong interest in things Turkish. I have been a member of a Turkish American Association for nearly 30 years, have owned Turkish dogs for close to 20 years (Anatolian Shepherds, the most beautiful and independent dogs around, although now that they can be AKC registered, I look for them to be ruined like other primitive breeds), and tend to follow Turkish news (not always encouraging from US eyes).
Since their revolution in the 1920's, led by Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the Turks have had a secular society and government, although they are about 98 percent Muslim. They really are the industrial and cultural powerhouse in the Islamic community; many of the former Muslim Soviet republics look to Turkey for an example of how to develop their nations. They have long had a robust weapons manufacturing sector, usually under licensure from Western firms (look at the old Turkish Mausers on the market, for example).
I have been resisting buying modern Turkish handguns because they frequently are copies of Western designs, but with my weakness for things Turkish, I now find myself looking again in that directions. And here I sit with cash in my new gun account, waiting for opportunity to present itself.
Those factory grips do look nice, but the wood ones ain't bad either. Maybe J&G has got an earlier import version. I also saw a link that said the Turkish military had adopted the C45 in 2007, so it must be a fine pistol. Sort of looks a bit like a Ruger P345.
Doc, since you got money in your gun fund, I nominate you to be the guinea pig on the C45. Range Report ASAP. This do look interesting. :mrgreen:
