Just bought a c9 today, my range had to order it, so I probably won'tsee it for 2 and a half weeks. (arrives in 7 days, 10 day waiting period)

I did a lot of research before buying, was looking for my first 9mm, and heard a lot of good things about this one.
I wanted a 9mm because I wanted a semiauto with low cost ammo.

I usually shoot
s&w .38 special (an old police revolver, from 1951, just did a serial number lookup)
berettta u22 neos

and also have a winchester 12 ga 1300 defender (never fired, gotta find time to go to shotgun range)
and a buffalo bill commemorative 30-30 (never fired)

Looking forward to having fun with this gun. Any mods I should think about? I'm getting a custom made trigger as I have heard the stock one is not the best.

I'm joining this forum to have fun, and hopefully learn something!

David

Sounds like you have a nice collection started, I'm kind of a fan of the old S&W wheelies.
The C9 is a great little gun, I had one and regret selling it.
I will probably get another one, but my want list is a long one. :dunno:

Welcome, I love my C-9, it's been very reliable so far, only had her about 4 months. I did end up tweaking the mag tabs a bit and polishing the feed ramp, I also broke in the mags spring by loading eight rounds and letting them sit for a week or two. Might not be neccesary for you, but that's what worked for me.

Good luck finding a custom trigger, I haven't been able too, but in all honesty the plastic one on my C-9 feels pretty darn good. I've given up on finding an aluminum one.

All I have done is remove the mag lockout safety on mine along with a fluff n buff on the feed ramp. The C9 is a great low maintenance handgun. Thinking about getting some of these

Oh yeah, almost forgot, I replaced the plastic sight with one of these.

Some people seem to have good luck with the OEM sights, mine where slightly warped, could have called Mom up for a new one, but I like my Mahan sight.

I find the main thing about the Mahan sight... it stays where you put it. My original HP sight was not warped...I could dial it in and shoot on spot. My complaint was that if ANYTHING touched it (like the friggan box on the way home) I had to reset next time. Put on a Mahan sight, adjust it, forget it. Stays put!!!

Welcome to the forum. to be honest, changing out the trigger is more of a bling thing than an improvement IMHO.

The Mahan sight on the other hand, is a legit improvement to an otherwise very well thought out pistol.
