One last question for the experts...

Do the SR9, SR9c, and 9E all use the same trigger? People really praise the SR9c's trigger but I thought they were all the same. Am I missing something?
They all use the same trigger design. The full size current production SR9 and 9E use the exact same polymer lower.

The trigger pull and feel between the two should be the same, as should the grip feel. If there is a weight difference, it would be in the slide.

The trigger parts are the same but as with any firearm that is mass produced, the trigger feel greatly depends on the finish quality of the individual parts in each gun. Smoother finished parts with produce better feel. Mine was a little gritty in take up pull but it was dramatically improved with simple polishing of the trigger bar side, the sanding of a mold parting line in the polymer grip frame that the trigger bar rides against and especially the end of the trigger bar where it rides against the trigger bar reset. These are parts #40 and 44. The end of the trigger bar is pushed back against an angled flat on the trigger bar reset when you pull the trigger. This action completes the cocking action of the striker and also the disengagement of the sear surface in a downward motion to fire the weapon. Polishing the end of the trigger bar (that was VERY roughly finished on mine) totally eliminated the gritty feeling while pulling the trigger. I simply used a Dremel tool with a cotton buff to shine up the metal parts and 600 grit wet or dry sandpaper the sand the parting line out inside the grip frame.

Thanks for the information, I really appreciate it.

I'm a Glock lover, so I'm no stranger to polishing internal parts, lol. I'll make sure to give the 9E once over when it arrives.
