Got my S9-A1 today. Looks great, handles great. Shooting report to follow.
How much, if you don't mind my asking?

And was the .40 available too?

I'll bet the pictures tomorrow for you. As far as the price, it was a trade deal. I'll get the photos posted as soon as I can.

IDPA, I thought you went with an M&P ?

Glad your back into the best polymer gun around.

BTW,
Has the STAG ? I got a right hander of the same model #2, added a SAMSON free float and a few other goodies and it's all tacticool

pics in the gallery for SA1

may be a pic or two from a old shotshow at sigforum

the SA1 purchase is suprising considering the comment you made on M&P forum.

Sorry if I missed this in another post, but has anyone determined if the rail can be safely and asthetically ground off. Damn shame they put that on the compact and I know I'm not the first to express that.

Hiya Pax :)

I did remove the front part of the Picatinny when it was obvious it was gonna pose a problem with drawing from a concealed holster. It turned out great. More than that, you'd hafta get into the SN# portion of the grip frame and that opens up a can of worms. Here's a pic.



I've hand sanded and polished it a bit more and it looks nearly factory now. There is a bit more that can be removed, as you can see, but not much. Further removal of the grip frame starts getting into the SN# factory "keep the serial number on the grip frame" portion of our show. <shrug> Maybe you can tell what I'm talkin' bout from this pic.



All in all, it does seem a waste to put an accessory rail on a compact pistol and if it weren't for the new style X-A1 grip, I'd have preferred the older M & S Series grip frame. I don't ever plan on adding any accessories to a conceal firearm. :roll: Anyway, hope this helps. Also, sorry for hijacking this thread. Cya.

Madecov,
The Stag is great. We have been holding a carbine match 1-2 times a month and it has perfromed flawlessly. You should come up and shoot with us. A two Stag match would really impress them.

I have gone over to the M&P for competition. With a little work the trigger is better and the left hand slide release is really nice.

Mr. A, I still have a soft spot in my heart for the Steyr and when this deal on the S9-A1 came up, I couldn't resist. After putting 14,000 rounds through the M&P, I stand by my comments on the M&P forum.
