    New gun day!:D


    The cutest gun

    Lubed for his pleasure

    Non-night sight version because this is what my gun store was able to get first. I did not want to wait, and they are very nice 3-dot sights anyway and this way I can get more ammo and accessories.

    $449 at The Gun Broker in Tigard

    Range report:
    +VERY accurate for a .380, though not quite matching my CZ-75 (can't really expect a pocket gun to match fullsize). This is a very respectable group I made at ~10 yards.
    +Very little recoil, it is hardly noticeable at all
    +Very good visible sights, even without tritium inserts
    +Trigger pull is very crisp, it does not feel like the 8lbs listed on sig's website
    +0 magazine or feeding issues. Fits 6+1 just fine and I don't notice any denting on the feed ramp like they had with the first gen mags. I shot 150 rounds of AE 95gr ball ammo. Not a huge track record yet, but .380 is kinda expensive. :C

    -Had to learn a new way to place my thumbs, if I put them in the same place I do on my CZ I get two problems: 1) right thumb resting on slide release causes the slide to fail to lock back on last round 2) left thumb touching the slide in any way occasionally causes a failure to go into battery. I have to put my thumbs down more than I am used to.
    -A little bit of trigger slap
    -trigger reset is a little grainy (a couple times I thought it reset all the way but I needed to go a little farther)


    Another one o' them CONTENTS OF POCKETS pictures so you all can see my tactical kleenex.:thumbup: Next paycheck I will get a crapload of some good defensive hollowpoint to test out.

    Thanks for the range report.
    Very nice set up!:thumbup:
    Been thinking about one of these, maybe with a set of Sarges' wood grips.
