It’s sometimes difficult to get excited when a new 9mm pistol is released. With the polymer-frame striker-fired handgun market so thoroughly saturated, we begin to look for minor variations that set one gun apart from all the others. Perhaps the new version holds one additional round, or maybe there’s a new color combination. Sometimes a gun is a tenth of an inch thinner than the competition, which helps conceal it. Other times an existing model comes with an optic cut on the slide.
