third time is the charm as they say. this is my third 92fs first one was a copy of the first run of the issue M9. second one i was issued it and carried it for 5 years it went back to depot twice for cracked slide and cracked frame lug. i shot a LOT of rounds out of that issue gun. prolly close to 25k or so. i know the platform pretty well.
i sold the first one because of issues with the military one i had. accuracy wasnt that great with either. my old taurus pt99af shot better (i rgret selling it).
anyway ive had a love hate going on with this gun since die hard. one of my most favorite movies. i know its a stupid reason to buy a gun but there it is. anyway the current political climate has prompted me to get one. since the m9 is still current issue there should tons of mags and ammo available.
this the m9a1 it seems to be much improved over my last experiences with the us service pistol. fit and finish is much better. while it does have a heavy da pull the sa pull isnt too bad. its got zero creep with a little take up. reset on firing isnt bad and rapid fire is easy to keep on target.
like most all metal 9mm the size and weight keeps recoil manageable (shot it this weekend) i do kinda like shooting this gun so i may do a lot more with it.

course any gun i get i gotta play dress up. the m9a1 fits the xdm 45 holster perfectly.
