Unique, pistol action with all the good design features of a proven S&W design. Even takes S&W mags. And it is offered at a good price. Gun range I used to work at sold lots of these in the early '90s.
Yup, looks identical to my dads 3913. Love it!

I bought the lh9n mkii...and let me tell you. I LOVE IT!
Its an amazing gun in every aspect. Very smooth. Great trigger in all three actions. Yes three. The standard novak sights are an added plus. First set for me and they allow me to get on target quickly. the gun comes cerokoted from manufactor so every peice and i mean every part of this gun is cerokoted.
But probably most notable is relliability. This gun will chew and spit out anything you feed it. Ive put 300 rds of dirty reloaded 9mm through the pipe and not one failure of any kind. Also critical defence with no problem. And 9mm +p with no issues.

I highly recommend these guns.

The wife and I saw the Lionheart pistols at their booth at the NRA convention last May. Solid gun built in Korea by a subsidiary/division(?) of Daewoo who also builds weapons for the South Korean military. I believe they are manufactured in Korea and imported by Lionheart where they make some modifications. Long story short my wife liked the pistol so I bought one (LH9-MK II below) for her a couple of months later. It's very solidly built and so far has been a reliable and reasonably accurate pistol. While not a negative, the $750 price tag puts it in competition with a number of other quality double action pistols on the market.

Saw them only Briefly @ SHOT, but we saw one @ the Gun show on Saturday. I think the Gentleman wanted $625 and had it listed as a "Korean SIG copy"..

These look like well-finished, quality firearms. They're a little spendy, but the finish and quality of the product seems to warrant that price.

I would not buy one today. I'll stick to the more common stuff that results in easy support, aftermarket parts, and acessories. But if they're alive and kicking in a few years, and their market share has expanded...they become more viable in my eyes. Sometimes it pains me to go the 'popular' route. I like being different. But if I'm dropping $700+ on a pistol, I expect it to have a certain foundation that I can lean on in the future. Common = more affordable and versatile in this case.

Otherwise, the gun looks great! Love the C-kote finish.

I have been eyeballing them. But for the price they are asking, I will have pass at this time. LHI are asking more than what I paid for my P938. And the LH9NC doesn't even come equipped with night sights.

The "N" in the LH9NC stands for novak. So that paticular model will have novak sights you can pay to upgrade to fiber or trijon*

I contacted Lionheart on 11/15/2013 asking them the following in an email.
Quote:
I am interested in your LH9NC series with night sights. If I purchase both the night sights and the pistol at the same time are the night sights installed by you?

Thank you!
And the response from D.J. MacLean at Lionheart was as follows.
Quote:
We do not currently offer the sight installation. We are however working on adding this as a lot of people like to have factory-installed sights. Please let me know if you have any other questions and I will be glad to help.

Happy Shooting,

D.J.
So the upgrade to tritium night sights was a little misleading on their website during the time I contacted them.

So my total cost for a LH9NC would have been $749 for the pistol plus $147 for the night sights which comes a total of $896 not including installation of the sights. For almost $900 my money can be spent better else where IMO.
