I'm just doodling around looking at pistols and I keep running into the SA P9. What is the story with this pistol? I'm curious because it looks pretty similar to a Browning Hi Power.

Nice guns. They were made for years in the 80's. They are very very hard steel and made to shoot, a lot!

Here are some shots of my couple of them. I have a P9 9mm and a P9 IPSC Ultra Comp in 40 S&W (this is a long slide P9 that has been ported).

The top is the CZ 97B and the bottom is the P9 IPSC Ultra Ported.

On the right is the 2 P9's. The top is the IPSC Ultra Ported and the bottom is the P9 9mm.


If you can find one, they are great guns. Built like tanks and made to shoot!

The story on the P9 is, it's a "clone" of the CZ-75.
Like almost all such near-copies, the base gun was actually made in Italy by Tanfoglio, and assembled and finished by the Pre-bankruptcy Springfield Armory.

Tanfoglio has made either complete guns, or has supplied the basic parts for:
The Springfield Armory P9
The Israeli Baby Eagle.
The FIE TZ 75.
The Excam TA
The European American Armory Witness, (EAA).
The Swiss Action Arms AT-84/88 series.
The Gambia SAB G90
And others.

The Springfield P9 version was one of the best versions, being somewhat better built and finished than the others.

These are excellent pistols, and owners usually rave about the good quality.
