I have been doing as much reserch on this weapon as I can. The M9 is an older weapon, with the M9-A1 being new construction, but I think that they are very very similar from outward appearance from the pictures I have seen.

You have already proven that mods have been done to one or both of these weapons with the night sights. I would believe that the triangular sights on the M9 were probably taken from the A1 when the night sights were added. Hell, they are all dove tail construction, so it stands to reason the new sights will fit the old weapon.
I think, but I'm not sure, that the M9 should not have the intergrated Picatinny rail mount system that the A1 has, so in that case, if both guns have the rail mount, then maybe the Frame, of the one marked M9, is actually an A1 frame, with an M9 slide, or some other after market slide. <shrug>

For instance, the M-A1 has the improved ejection plunger, better grip texture, grip plug standard, and a proper light rail attachment point
Do you mean there is a grip plug that is supposed to be standard on the new ones?

Because mine is BNIB, says M40-A1 and has no grip plug.
