    Default HK P9s - worth getting? What would you compare it to?

    Came a cross a P9s with 2 mags (waiting to find out if orig case, etc are included) which looks like new. IE year. Just under $1000.

    Love my other HKs but never shot one of these - is the general consensus that they're worth that $ or don't bother. Since it's a bit unique, any thing to watch out for and how would you describe it shoots?

    Thanks. I normally don't post a neophyte question like this but for this model I sure am.

    And if I missed this being answered elsewhere just feel free to tell me where to go. (God knows enough other people do...)

    First off, if you dont buy it, please pm me so that I can. I assume it is in 9mm, but is it a combat or target model? You should have it inspected (buffer) before shooting it.
    Marine 3003 on this board is the EXPERT on this platform. I am located about an hour south of you and have access to an indoor range if you want to try it out and talk all things P9S. PM me, Bob

    Thanks for the advice, all. Think I'll just save it and put it towards that P7 shooter-grade I'm looking for!

    Well--- if it were a true P9, or P9S (7.65/CAT. 880), NIB w/all, then I would say yes!!!

    I completely disagree. They are awesome pistols, underrated and overshadowed by the P7 series.
    Go buy it, @crzteach !!

    The decock procedure was an issue for me and passed on a really nice one. Still regret it somewhat.

    I have owned several over the years and still have one in .45 ACP. They are a very unique and interesting pistol, but if you are planning on doing a lot of shooting with it, I would pass.

    An older gun will probably need a spring and buffer refresh before shooting and you need to keep an eye on certain components that are known to break such as the buffer housing and firing pin. Parts are not generally available and expensive when found. The pistol also takes a fair amount of mechanical aptitude and a bit of a watchmaker's touch to work on properly.

    There are better choices available today if you plan on shooting it extensively, but if you are interested in collecting then by all means buy one.
