This has been on consignment for a while at my LGS. I don't know a whole lot about them other than I really like the style. Today the guy that owns it happened to be at the shop when I went shooting. I asked him about it and he's had it for years. Has 3 mags case lock and manual test target loaders and tools. Been fired very little. He let me run a few mags through it and I was hooked. Employing my WWCD (What would @Cuda66 Do) I low balled him. He laughed for a bit and then settled on 1200 bucks. I get to pick it up in a few days. H&K P9S .45ACP

Very, very nice.

I've seen them in worse shape, minus box for around $1k with one magazine, and P9S .45 mags run around $100 a pop, so...I think you did OK.

And if you decide to get rid of it...do keep me in mind. ;)

It's been in the case for a few months. Started at 1850 and there was no way I was gonna pay that. Price started coming down and it was a stroke of luck that he was there today. I offered him a grand and after shooting it I was fine with 1200. I only ran 50 rounds through it but no issues. Seems to be in great shape. He said he's got less than 500 rounds in it though I'd guess most people lowball their round count a bit.

Looks like a cool piece, and in .45 no less...solid score. What's it's birth year? Like late 80s early 90s?

yes...I is a doofus about imported pistols pre-2000-ish.

Ditto on the vintage?
What's with the weirdness of the trigger guard?

That's the "combat" guard. Up to 1973 they had a rounded one. When they started building .45ACP all the serial numbers started at 400 000. Vintage 81'
You can swap out the guards on them

The .45's were adopted by SEALS and somewhere there's a bunch of Cans with sights on them because they were gigantic and nobody made a tall enough suppressor sight for the gun. Here's a pic

They were quite popular for suppression; the roller-locked barrel system didn't need a booster to cycle the action.

I spent my morning looking at threaded barrels. Wish I could find an original can for it (for nostalgia)
