2021.11.28 04:47 drakehunter70 First Day Shooting the M9A4 - thoughts from 92x Performance Owner
| I already posted my initial thoughts of the M9A4 as it compared to the only other Beretta I know anything about - my 92x Performance. Yes, I understand they are completely different beasts with different goals, but I have 13 other pistols and I shoot A LOT (averaging 85 rounds per day for the last 18 months) so in some ways I am also judging it against others like my Sig M17 & M18 too. |
Best Group from 12 Yards Offhand
Need a Gas Pedal on the Takedown Lever
From a practical standpoint my support hand thumb took a beating as I'm used to using the takedown lever as a gas pedal, and the M9A4 didn't have anything to grab onto so I felt like it was going to tear my thumb to shreads. My first upgrade really needs to be a replacement for the takedown lever to match what I have on my 92x Performance.
Trigger makes my Glock 34 Gen 5 seem as good as my CZ TSO compared to this thing
Obviously the triggers are very different and this one hasn't broken in yet, but the SA trigger feels A LOT heavier than its 5.81 lbs. Generally I love 5 lbs triggers, but this sucker stacks like a MF making it feel like 9 lbs. The DA is even worse making its 8.84 lbs feel almost as god awful as my S&W M&P Bodyguard 38 Special Snubnose (which has the worst trigger on Earth). I can usually hold a 2 inch group offhand at 10 - 12 yards, but I was spreading out to 4 inches with this sucker.
Drifting Sights is not easy
I'm also cross eye dominant which means I always need to drift my sights a little otherwise they'll group left. I tried drifting the sights, but they didn't budget so I'm looking for a good YouTube video for drifting these sights without a sight pusher. I'm assuming there's no screw underneath the slide holding it, but it sure felt like it was bolted in as even a hand held sledge hammer whacking a large brass punch didn't make it budge.
I already got my first dent in the sight trying to drift it with the brass punch when the punch slipped up from the bottom dovetail up to the top on one of the hits. Not too happy about that! :(
3 Double Feeds in the first 150 Rounds
I don't limp wrist, but I also don't clean my guns before I shoot them the first time. It's always out of the box, and shoot. Today was super humid and rainy so perhaps that contributed to it, but even with a +P round I had a double feed once. Three total from 2 different ammos.
I had a similar issue with my Walther Q5 Match SF and it was fixed simply by cleanign and oiling the crap out of it. Many pistols don't need it, but that one absoutely did. My 92x Performance didn't and in 2000 rounds its never had a single malfunction. I probably had 500 rounds right out of the box before I cleaned it for the first time, but I never had any issues.
I deep cleaned and oiled the heck out of it tonight, but I was suprised given the fact that my 92x Performance is tied for the most reliable pistol in my collection with my CZ TSO.
Rear Sight Gap Too Wide
I've never had a pistol where I had to complain about this, but I definitely think that the gap in the rear sight is too wide as it was definitely impacting my ability to do more precision shot placement like I'm used to doing. I liked the sights otherwise and they actually worked great when it got dark at the range today.
Recoil was Fantastic
I love my 92x Performance and I'm happy to say that despite this pistol being much lighter, its return to zero for follow up shots is damn near as good - even with the crappy plastic recoil rod. Shot after shot had the sights return exactly where I was pointing when the pistol went bang.
Grips are OUTSTANDING
Someone please tell me who makes these grips? I want them on all of my pistols! The texture is excellent and the grip is outstanding. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these grips!
Front Serrations are Great
I love the front serrations on my 92x Performance, and even though these are much less aggressive they work just as well at the range. I'm super happy with these.
Nice to have a Decocker
I've never had a pistol with a decocker before, so I'm kinda digging it. It's super stiff so it feels like it takes about 12 lbs of pull to get it to engage, but it works well. I have the G model, so I'm glad it doesn't lock down as a safety too.
Slide Stop is Excellent for Releasing the Slide, but bad for lock back
This is one place where the M9A4 is far superior to my 92x Performance. The slide release is easy to engage with my normal grip and I can use to release the slide with very little effort - I love it.
However, the downside is that I love to ride that sucker so I had zero slide lock backs after my last round which was a bummer. I need to move my fat thumb off that sucker when shooting.
Mag Release & Magazines are Great
So happy to have 18 rounds instead of the 15 that my 92x Performance came with. These MecGar perform just like the ones I already for my 92x so they've been flawless.
The mag release button is perfect. It's a bit stiff right now, but I expect it to break in.
I wish the grip was wider
I have large (glove size) hands so my natural grip has my trigger finger going in so deep that my finger lands below the first knuckle. Forget about shooting with the pad of my the top part of my trigger finger - that creates a quarter inch gap from my hand away from the grip to shoot it that way. As such I have to compromise and shoot at the first bend in my finger which isn't ideal. This combined with the heavy trigger isn't doing me any favors in the accuracy department.
God I love this buttery smooth slide
Just like my 92x Performance, I could sit and watch TV and just slide this thing all night. It feels so good to rack the slide. Only my CZ TSO comes close to this kind of awesome metalwork quality.
Overall, I'm happy but I do think I'm going to change my original plan of not doing any upgrades. I've already ordered the 92x Performance steel guide rod and hammer spring. I'm thinking the trigger is likely to need more than that to get it from the Xtreme trigger to the Xtreme-S that I have in my 92x Performance. I'm wondering if I need the Wolff Trigger Conversion Unit or if I have to break the bank and do the LTT Trigger Job in a Bag, as this trigger simply won't do. It's pure garbage.

2021.11.28 04:46 gavininininja I don't understand NFT's
So right now I feel like NFTs are sort of dumb but I feel like I don't know enough about them to think that. Here's the part I don't get. The closest thing I could compare it to is stocks. But with stocks I can see why a stocks value rises. Because of the company's increased net worth and public image and what not. But with NFTs I don't understand what makes them worth more or less money. Is it just based on how much someone would pay for it like gold or collectibles? Or how popular it is? It seems like it's the same with crypto. Like is it only going up in price because more people want them?

2021.11.28 04:46 GrowingToad What book do you recommend that focuses on "liberal dystopia"
I was writing a paper on dystopian fiction like 1984, Fahrenheit 451, the trial and etc in contrasting it to today's world. One thing these books have in common aside from being a social commentary is that they're all set in a totalitarian/authoritative world. Although these books are relevant today, they don't cover all the issues that lies within today's society, where liberal thinking is pushed beyond it's limits. Hence why I decided to explore books that exemplify a liberal dystopian society. I could just Google this question, but I'd prefer your insights over the algorithm.
Note: I don't have any political views on the subjects afro mentioned. I'm trying to take a neutral stance on this and explore these types of dystopias and their impact on society. Thank you!

2021.11.28 04:46 DonSoIo New to RDO. I have some questions. (Level 26)
So I'm still new to RDO and the grind of hunting for money is kinda killing me. Besides the stranger and story missions what are fast ways to get money and gold?
Also what weapon or bow do I need to take down larger game? Elks, Bisons, Grizzlies and such. I've been lassoing elk and then killing them with the knife, but it makes there pelt good instead of perfect.
Not a question just funny. I lassoed a Bison and it wouldn't let me kill it with the knife, so I kicked it to death. Was pretty fun not gonna lie 🤣
