Yes sir. Sphinx SDP Alpha compact Cerakote black. 15 shot model (Glock 19 size). Should have it by Thursday. Literally had a dream about the unboxing. For the people that are unfamiliar here is a video. Sphinx SDP 9mm Pistol:

I spotted it right away. I have often wondered what kind of a shooter it would be, but no one here has ever even seen one. Seriously, cant wait for some good piks, first impressions, and a shake down.

I am super envious of his range . What a gig that must be when people send you guns and ammo to play with. He is a helluva shot too.

Exciting, Duff!  Post lots of pics and maybe even a quick video.  I love having dreams of new gear, an unboxing especially...

And he seems to be a totally nice guy. The epitome (at least to our nortern understanding) of a good southern gentleman. I enjoy his son`s stuff too.

 

Hey coldwater, did you get the 3 free mag deal when you bought your M1A?

No idea. I'm not sure it's in yet. I've been killing it at work and haven't had time to check on it. I just called the FFL dealer (friend) and had him order one in for me. I don't really even know what it'll cost me yet.

Hm. Hopefully. On Springfield's website the pop up says that orders of M1As come with 3 bonus mags.

Duff, that is an absolute thing of beauty. Everything the Swiss do seems to be perfect.

here it is compared to my CZ PCR. the sight radius is almost an inch longer. The feed ramp is mirror polished and the ergos are amazing. Single action is fantastic and has absolutely ZERO creep. double action is heavy (as described in every review) but smooth.fit and finish is flawless and the only tooling marks that I see anywhere are in a small channel inside the slide. everything else is smooth and perfect. the interchangabe grips increase palmswell and depth. plans to shoot it this weekend got screwed up so no range report for a while. I am super impressed so far.

Fantastic. I still think CZ make the sexiest pistols though.

I am a huge CZ fan , that PCR is one of my favorite pistols that I own and their ergos are fantastic. they are very under appreciated here in the states.

They just look amazing, both aesthetically and ergonomically.
