    ...And if you do, is it really better than the CZ-75 or Baby Desert Eagle?

    I'm going to guess 'no' will be the answer. RECOIL magazine did a story on them and they raved BUT, they are expensive. Hang here long enough and you'll see a lot of talk about sub $400 guns. You won't see a lot of talk about multi-thousand dollar boutique pistols.

    Don't own one but have handled one. They are better fitted than the CZ and baby eagle.

    An update to this dormant thread. I handled a Sphinx at the NRA Convention. The trigger pull was not just service-grade heavy but also gritty (tried another Sphinx - same feel). They may have been dry, but that's how Kriss USA displayed them. For the asking price I'd say No Buy.
