I just bought this SR40c last week and WOW! I've owned the full size SR9 for almost 5 years now and have never really given the compacts any notice. Honestly I think these pistols get overlooked. But, I decided I wanted a new carry gun with a stainless slide in 40 S&W and my search came up with this. At first I thought it'd be too big so I went to the gun store to check it out. I was sold in about 30 seconds. The feel of this SR40c is amazing, it has the traditional slim SR grip. It's such a natural pointer too. It's not a tiny gun by any means but still small enough to conceal IWB.
It came with on 9 round shortend mag and one 15 round full size mag. I really wish it had just come with two 9 round mags instead of the big 15 rounder. Not really a concealed carry magazine.
I took it to the range after a quick cleaning and fired about 200 flawless rounds through it. It's not only reliable but very, very accurate. Also, it's a very soft shooting gun for a 40 S&W. I like it a lot! The trigger is awesome too, short, light, and has a clean crisp break.
The SR9 full size I own has been absolutely fantastic and I see this SR40c as being the same. If you need a comfortable CC gun for a reasonable price, check out the Ruger SR series pistols. You'll get a lot of bang for your buck with these. - MIKE
The Glock .40 model 27 is awesome. It comes with two mags. It shoots like a dream. Recoil is far less than I had expected. Make no mistake, this will stop an attacker cold. The trigger pull is very easy, just a gentle squeeze launches a very lethal caliber round. I shot 50 rounds through it with no problems. I am using full metal jacket ammo, as recommended by the dealer. If your looking for a big gun that packs a very big punch, think about this gun. I have carried everything from a Kel Tec .32 to a 9mm, but nothing that packs the punch this Glock has. While its classified as a compact it is a little harder to conceal than the smaller guns I have carried. I am nearly 70 and like most senior citizens have arthritis and other ailments that caused me to be reluctant about buying this big of a gun. I am very happy to report that it is now my primary conceal carry weapon, and shooting it is enjoyable. - WALTER
You will love this gun. Very accurate at 20ft and the recoil is not too much. Very easy to take apart and clean and very easy to get it back togather. Comes with two mags and a speed loader. I found the grip to be great for me as it is out of the box but you do get extra back straps if you need to re-size it. GREAT PISTOL... - E. G.
