Compared to its full-size counterpart, the M9A1 Compact is a full 3/4" shorter and 2.3 oz. lighter, making it even more comfortable for all-day carry. While in the holster, its super-resistant Bruniton finish makes it stand up to sweat even on scorching summer days, while also making it more impervious to corrosion between shooting and cleaning. Engineered to withstand the hardest use in the most demanding conditions around the world, the M9A1 meets and exceeds the standards of reliability of professional military and law enforcement. This handgun will reliably feed most commercial ammunition designs, including the wider hollow-points and the hardest-hitting +P. An attractive, perfectly-engineered pistol for most uses including competition.
