Snappy, poor accuracy and action, and VERY poor design of the mag release. Look up all the complaints people had about their fingers accidentally hitting the release while shooting.

PT809 is the way to fly if you are gonna go with a full sized accurate semi in 9mm
Comes with a nice set up of gear too.

I like the pt809. Im just not sure about a gun that has a feature for making malfunctions function. How about put that technology into making it not jam???? If I wasn't worried about quality.... the pt809 looks like the gun for me. It looks like it has a nice full grip.... I i like that.
