Wow, I really like the polish job, care to share your method?How about a really positive review?
I've had my LC9s (Pro) since mid-February. It was test-fired 2/2/15. It now has over 1,000 rounds through it. None are factory loads; I shoot only handloads. These are the same I use in IDPA and USPSA matches in my CZs and Berettas -- 124 gr plated round nose bullet over either 4.9 gr of Unique or 4.1 gr of Bullseye with Federal primers. These loads are slightly softer than most factory loads. At right around 1100 fps (in a CZ 75B) it's a "Power Factor" of about 133. A PF of 125 is minimum requirement for "Minor" classification is USPSA. At least 120 is required by IDPA. So, while these are not powder puffs, they're not hot, either.
I have used this little pistol in four IDPA matches as a CCP (Compact Carry Pistol) and once as a BUG (Back Up Gun). I've done the rest of the shooting on the range and plinking at home. And I've dry-fired it a gazillion times. I've had no malfunctions.
There have been complaints from others about LC9s extractors. Mine is fine and holds the case tightly again the breech face. It ejects the cases reasonably close together about 12 feet away just past my right shoulder. There also have been complaints about releasing magazines accidentally or way too easily. Mine holds my four USA-made magazines so firmly that I have to press the release with my weak-hand thumb. I can't do it with my strong hand thumb as I can with all my larger semi-autos. This is fine with me. And, some have complained that their feed ramp was like a wash board. Mine came with a mirror finish.
Some have pointed out that the bluing on the top of the faceted breech area of the barrel wears. It does. I addressed the problem by polishing the breech and entire barrel. I like the way it looks and it does away with the problem.
One final opinion . . . My LC9s has a 4½ pound release. That's way too light [for me] to consider carrying this pistol in my pocket or an IWB holster. (I carry it in an OWB holster in IDPA matches.) So, for me, this is a "game gun," not a CCW for defensive purposes. For that I'd much prefer an old-fashioned LC9. As one who has six Berettas and two CZs that are DA/SA and eight S&W revolvers, I don't find the older LC9 trigger objectionable.
Just my take. Here are some photos.
