    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.

    [​IMG]

    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.

    [​IMG]

    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.
