For the times when capacity and features trump concealment qualities and ease of portability, the PT 809 is an excellent choice. The PT 809 is a single-action/double-action, recoil-operated, hammer-fired semi-automatic chambered in 9 mm Luger. The 809 combines a 4.2-inch stainless steel barrel, long sight radius and excellent low-profile, windage-adjustable Novak three-dot-pattern sights to ensure precision accuracy. A hammer decocker allows the PT 809 to be carried either with the hammer cocked, thus employing the lighter single-action trigger pull, or when decocked, the first shot in the longer, heavier double-action mode. This pistol features a lefthand slide lock safety, polymer grips, a picatinny rail, and a 17-round magazine. Its grips, metal, and bore are all in excellent condition.
