Hello all...new owner, new to the board! I've wanted an M9A1 since I ran across them over a year ago but never got around to buying one. I recently came across a new one for about $350 and had to go for it. I handled one previously at a gun show and it felt like it was built for my hands. I'd heard pretty good things about them...basically that they were a top notch pistol that kind of flew under the radar. I really think this will be a favorite for years to come. I'm only sorry I didnt buy one sooner. So...how'd it shoot? Wonderful. Pros- Recoil was easily managed. Trigger was crisp, clean and a pleasure to pull. I'd say this is the best factory trigger I've ever used. Sights were very easy to adjust to and fast to aquire targets. Great grip angle. I really like the way this gun points...I normally shoot XD's and the angle is similar...much better than the Glocks I have held. Cons- Plastic Guide Rod (soon to be replaced by BigTaco) I personally don't like the slide finish....the dulness of it...the feeling of it on my hands. I'll have it NP3ed by Robar when time and money allow. Lack of aftermarket parts. I put 100 rounds downrange and was thrilled with the way this thing shot. The brass was hitting me in the head but I've read that stops happening after the first couple hundred rounds or so. No big deal...it was kind of funny. I'm excited to have my new A1 and happpy to be part of the board. A quick question before I go....where is the cheapest place to pick up some high-caps for my gun? I've seen them for around $30 and was hoping I could find them for less....let me know. THANKS!!!
