welllllll... it sold day before yesterday. i honestly did not think ANYONE would buy it for the asking price since i told the shop no haggling on price. i dropped by to see if they had anything on the shelf and noticed the rifle missing out of the consignment case.

on the up side they DID have something interesting on the shelf. a compact M9A1 INOX

this isnt a pic of the actual pistol its one i dug up off the net. its not even listed as a product on beretta's website yet



wife gets the rest i get my initial money back so im not out a gun and the wife gets hors money. she was a LITTLE cranky when i told her i was taking a share but since she is sick its a good time to be in the nookie doghouse.
Timing is everything....in more ways than one.

I have 5 . Time for something different. I only have one more I would even consider moving the other 3 no way. This new one should be fun. Might just get on the list to sbr

My DPMS has been in the LGS for the last several days. It's a carbine upgraded with MOE furniture throughout, a Millet Red Dot, and a brand new M16 BCG. So basically, a $700 rifle upgraded to a $900-1K rifle. I really like it and had it set up just right for my needs. But it'll probably bring $1500-1800, so I started a new build to essentially replace it with an upgrade.

Yesterday I secured a Noveske lower to complete the replacement. PSA/MI upper, Cerakoted M16 BCG, PSA/Magpul lower build kit, Magpul MBUS sights, Gunfighter CH, Vortex Strikefire red/green dot...with probably $300 left over to pay off my G20 when it arrives.

This hysteria will get old quickly, but I have to admit it's been interesting getting paid to upgrade my gear in recent weeks.

I'm really liking all this panic buying. I sold the Plum Crazy for a 400% return, sold another gun I wasn't really using for what I paid for it 8 years ago. The proceeds are going to a new Kahr PM9 that I will pick up later today.

$3000 for the kriss isn't that bad. The ma compliant version goes for $2750 normally.

That is a great looking pistol. I could not find it on the Beretta website either. If you dont mind me asking but what is the model number? Or is it just called a M9A1 compact. Thanks
