Default Looking at a Pocket 9

I am thinking of getting a pocket 9mm.
Was looking at this XR9-S.

Anyone know anything about them?
Looks nice.

Looks to me like a jam fest or potential finger tip remover, that forward trigger placement just begs for wrapping a finger around the muzzle if you draw and shoot in a hurry. just my .02...

And what's that trap door that drops prior to firing...how is that activated? Is that the hammer?

P.S. looks a lot like a Raven .25 ACP I had 30 years ago...bore axis is higher though.

Looks interesting. I wonder how much they are and how good the feeding mechanism works? I wish I had the money to replace my Rohrbaugh 9s I used to have.

Supposedly in the Mid 800's. Might just get an LC9.

I initially thought you were talking about a Colt Pocket Nine.

That or a Kahr PM9. I'm going to take it a step further and have more power in the same size pistol & get a Kahr PM40.

Interesting design and while I'm a pretty adventurous guys (I bought my PPS the day the first one hit my local gun store) New companies with brand new disigns, specially when they are complicated and revolutionary, I need to have other folks test them out for a while before I will take the plunge.

Good luck and I would love a range report if you get one. Oh and I HIGHLY recommend the Walther PPS as a pocket 9mm!

FWIW:

The Boberg XR9-S IS in production, and pistols are being shipped.. At present I believe production is only 70-80 per. month, but the numbers are expected to increase pretty quickly.

Gun magazine reviews are expected during the Christmas holiday season.

Boberg Arms if you have any interest.

Not my cup of tea.. I am afraid I prefer the barrel to extend further in front of the grip instead of balancing fore and aft directly above it. I feel it helps me with a natural pointing sensation. I am looking very hard at the Ruger LC9... Guns and Ammo did an article on 5 popular pocket 9s and after reading it I am leaning toward the LC9 and the PM9...
