SR9 VS SR9c comparison

I am trying to figure out which one I want to get. I already have an LC9 and wanted to get something with more capacity as well as more accurate for plinking. So I was thinking of going with the regular SR9 and the LC9 would fill the role of compact. After looking at the SR9c I really like it but was wondering how accurate they are compared to the SR9?
Thx,
Bob

I haven't fired a standard size, but I can tell you that I shoot an SR9c better than a Glock 19 or 17.......which I've been shooting for 15+ years.

The versatility of using a flat base 10 rnd. mag., extended floor plate 10 rnd. mag. or the 17 rnd. mag with adapter is pretty cool too!

Both guns are more accurate then the person using them, I would suggest the SR9c but that is just because I have one! Whaterver you choose, you will need to work on your trigger finger, that is where most people lose there accuracy. Very simple to say, not so simple to master!!

Forum member Raminator has both and I seem to remember that he says both are virtually identical in accuracy.

Conceal carry on the SR9c is way better. I use a kholster IWBand it just disapears under a shirt.

Capacity is the same because they both use the same 17 round SR9c magazines. The 10 round mag for the SR9c doesn't use the long floor plates so it conceals very well. The SR9c has an improved trigger.

Cool

The SR9 is a nice gun, but I would vote the SR9c because of it's versitility.

Concealabilty as well as a good range gun.

The SR9c is a very accurate gun, and the trigger is light years ahead of the LC9, and an improvement on the original SR9.

Unless you want something for pocket carry, I'd go with the SR9c over the LC9.

There really isn't enough size difference between the two IMHO to warrant giving up the round count and the trigger.

If you do want pocket carry, there are better options that the LC9.

BTW welcome to the forum Bob!

Since I already have the LC9 I thought I'd probably keep it since it's gonna be a little smaller. The trigger on the LC9 is horrible though for just shooting.

I just purchased a SR9C and love it! It is very accurate and is actually hard to miss with IMHO! I have not carried it concealed yet, but I know it will work well. Someone mentioned Glock above...I can shoot the SR9C better than my Glock 26 also.

Since you have the LC9, I would get the full-size SR9. If you ccw you will always choose the LC9 anyway, so why get another compact.

I have an SR9, and I recently shot an SR9c. I actually thought I did better with the SR9c than I did my own SR9! I was very impressed! I wasn't sure how I would like the way it fits in my hand, since I have larger hands and the handle doesn't extend all the way down my palm, but honestly, once I was pulling the trigger I didn't even notice it's size anymore. I shot the compact back to back with the LC9,(since the girlfriend was interested in something slightly smaller and more powerful than her Walther PK380) and honestly, while the LC9's size, power, and features are impressive, I would never shoot it for fun like I would any other the other guns that I've shot.

After my experience, I will buy an SR9c, and then upgrade my SR9 to an SR40.

Congrats! Great choice fonecop1. Enjoy!

I'm sure you won't have trouble finding a buyer for the LC9 if that's what you decide.

I think the hardest thing will be finding a holster, it looks pretty slim out there.

As the owner of both, they shoot equally well. Pick the one YOU like.
