Hi all! Below is the link to my highly anticipated range-review of the M9A3. Be sure to share your thoughts with me after watching it!

A setting on my Youtube channel was changed and it would not allow this video to play here. I think I have it fixed now. Oddly, I never changed the setting in the first place. Hmmm.

One thing you may want to try. the arched grip may assist with slightly elevating your groups, sort of like a 1911 vs a 1911A1. I've found at 25 yards I shoot 1 to 2 inches lower with the Vertec grip vs the standard M9A1 or Houge grip on the M9A3.

Excellent Video! 8)   Got a good laugh from the little Cowboy hats on the Pop Bottles.
Congratulations on your new M9A3 and may it serve you well! :)

Good review. The M9A3 looks like an excellent handgun. I am really considering getting a Langdon Elite LTT!!!

You know, I'm pretty interested in one of those too. I am hoping to maybe get one in for a review and comparison to the standard Beretta pistol.

Nice video.

My experience with my copla-years old 96A1 compared to first love, 96 Centurion is similar.  In comparison, the 96A1 is a tack driver!  Although I don't frequently shoot 9mm through the 96A1, it does great with my dedicated 96FS barrel, locking block combo and 9mm magazines.  Only the barrel swap is required to make it work -- never had extraction issues, but technically there is a difference betwen 9 and 40 extractors IIRC.

I think you're right about the point of impact for WWB 124 grain NATO. I put a thread in the "Day at the Range" section.

I picked up a box of Winchester NATO ammunition over the weekend. As soon as I have time, I'm going to give that at try in the M9A3 to see how it does.
