    Seems like the best of both worlds would be if the slide locked back on an empty mag then dropped when the mag dropped. This would not require any extra steps and would still tell you you have shot the gun dry. Just a thought.

    Wow... GREAT IDEA! So when you empty a mag... the slide would lock back and then when you pressed the mag release (to replace the mag) it would ALSO serve as a slide release. After the full mag is inserted... you would rack the slide to chamber a round. I really like this... it seems more intuitive.

    Great suggestion. I just started a new 'Slide lock back' discussion on Boberg's forum and copied it over. Here's the link if anyone wants to follow it:

    Pretty soft shooting for a sub-compact 9mm; shoots very similarly to my Ruger SR9c, which is a significantly larger pistol.

    Josh; Congrats,
    Nice looking little pistol!
    I'll have to wait till they get their prices down before I can afford one...

    An XR9s just sold a week ago for $2000 on Gunbroker - better buy one now before prices start going up. ;)

    Pre-orders sell for under $1000.

    That's what I was referring to - Boberg's "introductory pre-order price" might not stay at $949 long, if they continue to sell for $2k on GB.

    I got my email with my opportunity to preorder today (I was signed up on a list). I think it's a flat-out sexy gun. The long barrel/small package is obviously the selling point.

    They look to be a very high quality firearm, and I think Arne has done his best to try and work the kinks out.

    I would very much like to buy one, but at this point I am not ready to pay $950 on a gun without a lifetime warranty; and I'd really prefer a shorter grip to compete with the cm9/pm9.

    I'll pass. Almost a grand for a gun that the slide can't lock back on when empty, has just a 3 year warranty and has a completely unproven operating system? Nope.

    Yeah...

    I think I'll stick with the gun which can fire over a hundred thousand rounds in its life and has a lifetime warranty.

    Don't get tripped up by the 3yr warranty, Ruger doesn't even offer a written warranty, yet they fully stand by their products. Arne will totally stand by his products should any problems surface. There's some good warranty discussion on Boberg's forum.
