    Welcome to ftf. Why are you looking for a longer barrel?

    Probably not to a point that would make it worth the cost. You would still have the same sight radius. You may want to look into better sights and just keep practicing.

    The gun is more accurate than you are as it is out of the box. I own a P95 and while it is no match grade pistol, it is a nice shooter and will serve you well for it's intended purpose. If you want super accurate you are not going to find it in a $350 pistol and a barrel is not going to make a difference.

    Not that I can think of. Like you said maybe night sights. IMO if this is your first pistol and you are a newer shooter, spend your money on a good firearms class. You will learn many valuable things. Money spent on training is never a bad thing and it's an investment that never wears out.

    Upgrade your ammo supply and leave the gun alone. Shoot more and learn for yourself if there are any changes that are worth it for you to make. I do not own one but have shot several. They are very good shooters as they are.

    Never seen a longer barrel for that gun.

    However, I have owned a couple of these over the years. This is the one case where I prefer aftermarket mags over factory mags. MecGar mags have a thicker body and less flax than the factory mags. Also easier to load than the factory mags, IMHO.

    Mecgar makes factory mags for many other gun companies, and are generally considered the best aftermarket mags. So, they are good stuff.

    I used the 15 round MecGars. Same size.

    They also have 17 rounders that should be the same size as well. I ordered mine from Midway USA
