    I am sorry that I do not have a picture of this gun, I would if I knew the name.

    It was available in the early to mid 90's. 9mm Israeli made, all metal (no plastic), mostly stamped parts. It looked sort of like a short Glock with an internal striker but had an atrocious double action only trigger pull.

    I vaguely remember Shotgun News selling these as Israeli air force pilot survival guns but cannot be sure.

    I remember one from Israel called the Jericho. It seemed to be very popular for a few years back then. I do not recall it looking like a Glock though!

    Bingo!

    That's it!

    Pertinent quote:

    "Now, let’s discuss the SD9’s achilles heel: the trigger. It is the worst trigger I’ve ever pulled. It’s worse than my out-of-the-box S&W Sigma SW9VE. It’s worse than my out-of-the-box Hi-Power with magazine disconnect. It feels like it must be 18-20lbs. The pull is uneven and the trigger wiggles."


    Thanks!

    That thing looks like a glock with a broken nose. What's up with that trigger guard shape?

    Good job with "Name that Gun"!

    I was thinking of something very similar: the Intratec CAT 9.

    I don't know. It is made of sheet metal.

    The designer of the Sardius SD9 was Nehemiah Sirkis. He also designed the Intratec CAT 9, the Cobra Patriot 45, and the Detonics Pocket 9.

    Maybe the micro desert eagle? Not sure when they first started producing these. I owned one about 10 years ago..
