He's got it! =)The purpose of the CA1 is you have less slide to draw from a holster and little less time to draw. A fullsized grip with normal capacity magazines 15/17rnd vs 10rnd 9mm mags. Sure shorter grip would accept larger mags but no one has made a grip adapter for them.

I get it too, just can't afford it! Wishin' they'd come down a bit more.He's got it! =)
Mine was $480 plus $15 FFL transfer. But really, in the (not so long run) ammo will be a much larger part of cost of ownership than initial purchase price, unless you plan on just looking at it and not using it.I get it too, just can't afford it! Wishin' they'd come down a bit more.
Or a good used one...
It's a silly concept IMO unless you just favor a longer barrel, but then why would you want to limit yourself while trying to help yourself at the same time.I love my C9 because my big hands I draw faster than a short grip unless it's a 1911,but I don't understand the short grip longerslide thing ???anyone care to explain please lol
Hater. heheheThis dead horse has taken its fair share of beatings. Do a search and you will find that many of us think the C9A1 is a backwards design - you are not alone in your confusion. A short grip and regular slide would have made a lot more sense from a concealed carry perspective.
have you got any pics or anything of that? for the life of me i cant find a S used local, but a couple m's have for sure. i love my m40-a1 and would love to have an s9-a1 or chop an m to be able to run any caliber big or little...Amen my brother.... i cut the grip of an M-A1 down to S series length and carry it daily with S mags in it. when the L comes out i will do the same... i did a few other local customers the same way, they love it.
Yeah. Tell these haters whats up!I like the bigger grip and shorter barrel. Reason I bought the c9. My reasoning isn't based on science of self defense carry or study of handling mechanics....its just I like higher ammo capacity and a larger grip and I find a shorter barrel easier to cc. So I have no problem with the c9....I find it was the best choice for what I wanted. Too each their own.
