I'd be interested in actually holding one. That grip extention for the 17rnd mag looks a little curious. But, it does address one of the major problems with the SR9, namely grip length.The SR9c compact pistol weighs in at 24 oz. and features an overall length of 6.875", a height of 5.00", and the same slim 1.27" grip width as the full-sized SR9. It comes with two magazines that provide options in both capacity and grip size. The standard magazine holds 10 rounds and features a flat bottom butt plate; a finger grip extension floor plate is also included. The second magazine features a grip adapter and holds 17 rounds, instantly transforming the smaller, compact grip into a full-sized 9mm grip. The 3.50" barreled pistol features an integral accessory rail that accommodates most lights and lasers.
The SR9c compact pistol utilizes the same adjustable, high-visibility 3-Dot sight system as its full-sized predecessor, setting it apart from many compact pistols that rely on fixed sights. New serrations are located on the front portion of the slide, making it easier to both manipulate the slide and to press check the chamber. The SR9c is available with a glass-filled nylon frame and through-hardened slide in either a brushed stainless or blackened finish. State compliant variations are available where necessary and ship with two 10-round magazines.
Just like the original, full-sized SR9, the SR9c is loaded with modern safety features like a 1911-style ambidextrous manual safety, internal trigger bar interlock and striker blocker, trigger safety, magazine disconnect, plus a visual and tactile loaded chamber indicator.

I'd say it's possible, but IMO and by comparison to my G26 which I do pocket carry around the house. I'd say no, it's to big to be carried in the pocket without serious printing going on. JMOWill it be possible to pocket carry the SR9c? It is a bit bigger than the Glock 26, so if anyone owns a Glock 26, do you think it is possible or is pocket carry out of the question?
Without reading the article let me guess what Jeff Quinn says; perhaps something like “the pistol worked flawless with all type of ammo tested and it was very accurate”. If you have read one of his reviews then you have read all of them.
