Following on the success of the company's recently released stainless-steel frame, single-shot .45 Colt/.410 PS1 pocket pistol, Heizer is expanding its lineup with the new PAR1 chambered for the .223 Remington rifle cartridge. Like the PS1, the .07" wide PAR1 has a snag-free profile with a rounded grip, a smooth roller bearing trigger, and a storage compartment in the grip frame. However, the barrel will be about a half-inch longer. Although firing a high velocity cartridge like the .223 from such a small gun is going to reduce the energy of the bullet significantly, this pistol is likely to bring a whole new meaning to the term "pocket rocket," at least where muzzle blast is concerned. The PAR1 does not have an suggested retail price as of this writing, but the price is likely to be in line with that of the PS1, which starts at around $400. For more, visit Heizer Defense.
