Yep, yep yep...
Sig meets CZ!
At least that's what it looks like to me... more like the CZ99 made in Africa...
I haven't shot one yet but have fondled one plenty of times at a local shop. For the cash (and the price you quoted is about the same here) it's a good deal.
Um... how come you haven't thought about the world's best pistol caliber before? You will NEVER regret getting a .45.
Anyhow it seems like a high quality pistol at a fine price. I haven't gotten one 'cause I have to kick .45s out of the way when I walk anywhere in my house... but you should definitely add it to your collection!
