I finally locatred an SA GI micro compact (the parkerized one) for a semi-reasonable price after searching for a couple weeks. Man these things are scarce and the one I got was the last one the dealer had.
I called SA and they told me it was manufactured 08/07 and that was the latest run of these. They guy I spoke to said he was surprised I found one this late, that they sell like hotcakes.
It will get here Saturday. Any advice as to how to break it in correctly or any other tips or pointers will be greatly appreciated. I've owned some .45s (still do) but never one with a 3" barrel. Just have to see what the fuss is all about.
It might replace my Kahr PM9 as my EDC. Not sure about that yet, obviously.
There are a few variations of this pistol. This one is the bare bones, GI - parkerized. PW9801LP.
But I have read some people say their's GI parkerized came with a lowered and flared port, others lowered but not flared and still othesr yet that said the port was a standard GI.
I did my own informal poll on the quality of these pistols by checking what was said about them in various forums including this one.
Positive comments ran about 7-1 saying this was a decent quality pistol.
What do you folks say?
