Felk MTF-450 made by FELK ARMS P/L of Australia. Odd that something similar can actually come out from the Country that enacted the 2nd worst gun control laws in the last 15 years, and in fact it has been made specifically for the US market.

Thumbs up Re: Trivia

Bravo Pierangelo !

Australian Felk MTF-450 pistols:
All Felk pistols are manufactured from the toughest materials available. The polymer used in the frame is virtually indestructable. The use of polymer has the advantage of being tough, lightweight and cost effective.
The toughness of the material enabled us to produce a .45 pistol that is not only the shortest (165mm/6.5) polymer framed pistol, but has the longest barrel (91.5mm/3.6) on the market for a pistol of this length which contributes to superior accuracy.
Felk pistols have only 34 parts which is approximately 50% fewer than conventional handguns. A Felk pistol can be completely dismantled with just a small screwdriver.
Construction: Polymer Frame
Operation Principle: Semi-automatic
Firing Mechanism: Striker fired - Safe double action
The versatility of the Felk pistol is second to none. Most parts are interchangable between models. For example, by swapping the slide/barrel combination and magazine, the same frame can be used for 9x19mm Para (10-round), .357 Sig (9-round), .40 s&w (9-round) or .45 ACP (9-round). This is a world first!
The quick action slide release lever located inside the trigger guard allows the change to be made in just six seconds. Its the fastest slide release mechanism in the business.

Arrow I have some more informations about this...

Felk Firearms seems to be a quite interesting company: they are a subsidiary of Felk Industries, which is actually an Australian corp., though Felk Firearms is based in the United States (namely in Virginia). Felk pistols themselves are in fact built by subcontractor in Spain, and sold exclusively through the Virginia-based subsidiary.
Felk pistols are similar to the Glock series, with a similar operation, polymer frame, and steel slides. Appearance is different, however, being more rounded and somewhat more ergonomic. They are also extremely safe weapons, with automatic firing pin safeties, automatic striker safeties, DAO operation, and a pivoting-blade type of manual safety. Unusual in a budget pistol, the trigger is adjustable for pull weight. All of the MTF series are essentially identical, since they may be changed in caliber simply by changing the magazine, barrel, and slide. The barrels are all 3.5 inches long. Sights are typically fixed and simple notch-and-blade types.

Variants are:

MTF-919 (.9x19mm a.k.a. 9 m/m "Luger"/"Parabellum"/"NATO" caliber, 10 rds)
MTF-400 (.40 Smith & Wesson, 8 rounds)
MTF-450 (.45-ACP, 9 rounds)

Have you ever found any other sources except their Aussie "official" website? Methinks that's vaporware...

Otherwise I have not more "sources" about Felk.

Today I have noticed a Felk MTF-919 (9mm version) on sale @ Gunbroker:

http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/Vie...?Item=79699724

Odd enough, it says "not many made it into the USA", but then, where were them sold? Not in Australia, too small for their laws, unless some Police force has adopted them down under. Still AFAIK, actually Felk pistols were/are made SPECIFICALLY for the American market. Sources say that them have been around since as early as 2003, but I had never heard of them until one month ago. I don't know if it's enough to call them "Vaporware", but it gets close to.
