    NICE! I have a Probis-III version of the M9 that I bought back in '87 ('88-ish) during a tour of duty in Germany. I like the style of saw teeth on yours and it being all black as opposed to the OD handle and scabbard only being available back in my day.

    The only beef I have with the system is the handle should be slightly ovaled instead of being round to make righting the thing in your hand while in the dark easier, but the thing can punch through and crack a sternum for sure with a good thrust!!



    Here's my "vintage" M9 mounted on my "vintage" Colt slab-side "hybrid" sporter-II that I got around the same time/place:

    Nice photo!

    Some people don't like my M9, becuase it's made in Asia. Too bad the S&W knives are now made in China.
