What guns don't get the recognition they deserve? The LH9 was completely overshadowed by the shitty fucking VP9.
yup I really want one But can't find any cheap I think i'm just gonna wait till next christmas
A few people shit on the LH9 becuase
>hur, you can get a DP51 for cheaper
Well, no shit a used gun is cheaper than a new gun. People also shit on the high MSRP, but the LH9 street price is usually equivalent to other comparable handguns. It's not very widely available though, so maybe a tad higher than other guns becuase of that. It seems like there are even fewer places that stock them now and most people just order from Lionheart directly during black firday.
I had an LH9c and was very underwhelmed by it. The trigger was ok, but I never shot the gun as accurately as any of my other compact/sub-compact guns.
It also had some serious feeding issues when I got it, and would lock the slide back mid magazine. When I sent the gun in to Lionheart (they made me pay shipping, which isn't a huge deal, but companies like Ruger or CZ will send you a label if you have a problem) all they did was grind the end of the slide stop down. Problem being they grinded it so far down it would lock back on empty, after I realized how hokey their service was I decided to sell it.
That being said, I realize my gun had some problems but my brother and father both have fullsize models and love them. They haven't had any issues beyond the finish being somewhat soft.
If the hype is to be believed, the PPQ doesn't get the recognition that it deserves.
Steyr L9A1 / M9A1 perhaps?
Had some extractor issues on release, but they seem pretty solid now.
There's 15 rounders.
I figure you should be able to get it to 17 with a floorplate extension.
I really want a S&W 5906 derivative in 9mm, with an aluminum frame, frame mounted safety, spur hammer, DA/SA trigger, 5" barrel and slide to match, which takes M&P 9 mags
It's a shame too, because as I understand, the PPQ is supposed to be very nice.
Maybe people are turned off by the mag release? I know I am, to be completely honest.
>although made by promag
Avoid, pretty much everything made under the ProMag brand is cheap flimsy junk.
I've been told the steel 20rd mags for the Mini-14 are supposed to be passable but I would preferably want to test that theory before relying on them.
Only 1/2 difference in barrels,overall length and height.main difference magazine in gun capabilities.second mag can be lot of choices.10,13,15,17,20.can use s&w 5906or6906,marlin camp 9,or mec-gar.
the PPQ has flaws in itself. A regular non navy model doesn't have drainage ports for the striker and will choke on water like that VP9 in that video did. The magazine release is also even more fragile on the M1 than the VP9's paddles. The M2 also have the button magazine release put on as almost an afterthought and will easily drop mags firing with a modern thumbs forward grip.
Unless you've either never used one or are using the release incorrectly, you'd be retarded to pick the button release over the paddle. Use it with an index finger and you don't have to shift your grip with any size hand and it's nearly impossible to accidentally engage.
I have 5k through mine. As longs I keep a fresh recoil spring in it, its reliable as a Sig or Glock.
I love my DP-51. It came to me in kinda rough shape but fresh paint is in the mail and the last thing I want is a new barrel, kinda hard to come by one.
>hurr this pistol is competitive on price one weekend a year, this is a totally valid comparison to the normal street price of comparable pistols the other ~362 days of the year!
Some other reasons it's not very widely liked are that nobody makes a good holster for it and it has low capacity for its size. Also spare magazines are pretty scarce and outrageously expensive for what they are.
>$650+ street price
smith and Wesson makes damn good 1911s
There are like 4 companies that makes holsters for them. K rounds, G code, and some semi custom leather companies. Any holster made for the smith 59 should also work.
Also I never stated that the BF price is the street price, the street price of the base model LH9 use to be around 450-500 last year with others usually being 75-150 cheaper than msrp. Again, not cheap, and i never claimed it was. What I said was that the street price are close to other full size metal guns of similar features, and maybe a tad higher now due to few places (online that i could find at least) offering them compared to a year or two ago.
Also, magazines can obtained from the manufacture. Are they cheap? Not really, but they aren't outrageous either. 35 bucks? Beretta wants 30 from their own store for 92 mags. CZ wants 40 for cz75 mags from their own site. Mec gar use to make cheaper aftermarket ones for the dp51. If the lh9 gains popularity maybe they'll start making them again.
I really want one of these before the prices start going up.
