Back in November of 2010, Masterpiece Arms started shipping that tiny Protector pistol that has become quite popular since its release. Still, it doesn’t seem that many are too familiar with it. We covered it here and I also held one at a Gun Show and gave my impressions here, where you will also find comments from readers that own one.
Now it seems that they are set to release the Protector II Pistol, which does bring a few enhancements that are said to be a result of feedback from customers. This new 2012 model does not appear to be on their official website yet but from what AmmoLand has gathered, this new model sports a beavertail style grip, square serrations on slide and best of all for such a small pistol with a bit of a punch, it apparently is now ported for more pleasant shooting and a bit less recoil. I could not find much else on it, but this pistol has apparently done well for them that they have focused on expanding the line with new models. These pistol are also modestly priced and of very high quality, based on my experience with them so far.
