I had a customer tell me something about it, from what I know of him he is usually very knowledgeable but could have been misinformed

I just got a cm9 last week and love it. I never liked double action but it was very shooth with a clean break and easy to get used to. Pretty easy to pocket carry as well.

The most important question has not been asked and that is exactly what do you want it for? If you are looking for a range/plinking gun I would say the 9mm due to cost, if you want a defensive gun I would say the .40 because it is quite a bit better suited for dropping a BG. I'm not a fan of having two barrels for one gun. Much prefer just having 2 guns, one in each caliber.

Both rounds are great man stoppers, the .40 obviously has the ballistic advantage but the 9mm is no slouch. IMO 9x19 is more then enough for civilian carry. But if i was a police officer or at war i would opt for the .40 S&W or .45 acp.

Well whichever I choose will be home defense for now and when I am able a ccw. The guns I have in mind are the sr9/40 or a cz 75 p-07 in either caliber

The roll pins were cracking after excessive dry firing. The one on top of the slide near the rear sight.

Hmm must be the hit or miss type because I always dry fire my XD 40 and I have no problems at all

There is, nor has been a recall.

Every time I will suggest 9mm over .40 S&W. I just don't see the point of .40 S&W. It was created due to a mistake. The difference between the two is minimal except in cost. It's a lot cheaper to get 9mm.
