 A batch of the P-100 just came in, saw a bunch pop up today.  For those in the U.S. who are looking for one

Somewhere other than Gunbroker?

Those who own one, can you post an unloaded weight without a mag inserted?  I have found that my SP-01 is actually almost 2oz lighter than the listed weight online (a couple of my other guns weigh dead on their listed weights), so I'm curious to see how this steel compact compares.

Currently, as of this posting, Buds has a few left, but they are selling out fast.  https://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/product_info.php/products_id/5387/tri-star+sporting+arms+85085+p-100+9mm+37in+blk+15rd

Grabagun also currently has them:  https://grabagun.com/tristar-p-100-9mm-3-7-15rd.html

Prices are up a bit, now.

P100 in .40 might be more available due to the fall in popularity at the moment of the .40 S&W cartridge.  That's fine with me as prices for firearms and ammo make it very attractive.  165 grain going over 1000 fps.  Yeah all day long. Personally I love the .40 cal.

Nope!  TriStar quit manufacturing and importing .40 Caliber Pistols a couple of years ago.
You might find them on the used market, but they are also scarce there.

Dang it! Couldn't stop myself! Bought my second P-100. <Sigh> Another six months to new truck step bars.  :-\ I keep doing this!! I really think these steel/hammer guns are going to dry up and all Canik/Tristar will import will be striker fired polymers. And with that nice piece of rationalization in place, I can go ask my Tundra for forgiveness.

Congrats! The pain she inflicts can’t last nearly as long as the all-steel DA/SA hammer-fired beast of a pistol you just acquired
