Customer Reviews 35 Customer Reviews Average 4.5 out of 5 David G It's a little unfortunate that I can only assign one overall rating here. Bud's is a clear 5 stars, the transaction was flawless with "no headaches" choosing a FFL to work with. As well, the Norton Shopping Guarantee is really a nice benefit. It saved me a nice amount of money post purchase on this gun, so always activate it.
The gun itself I'd give a 4. It's a light, thin gun that is easy to conceal, but it has some downsides. The price cannot be beat. Simply put, it's a single stack 9 that i'm comfortable carrying that cost me well less than $300. However, upon comparison to a pricer M&P Shield, I'm not as accurate out of the box with it. I can get consistent tight grouping with my Shield, while the 709 seems to be a little more difficult to shoot accurately for me. As a right handed shooter, the slide stop and external safety does protrude a little too much and catches on my IWB holster pretty regularly. After owning it a couple of weeks, the slide stop and safety is starting to show holster wear already. Mags can be hard to find so I hear, but I did get 2 from the manufacturer right away. Aftermarket night/fiber optic sights are very limited so be aware, but finds a holster was pretty easy.
I really like the double action/double strike ability, but I've not been able to test with a live round, so it's a desperation feature only. However, that leads to an odd single action trigger pull. There is a fairly long pull with no resistance until you get an pretty immediate take-up and break in single action. I think that will take some more getting used to, but I've been able to get some good groups.
I did have some FTE failures with the first 100 or so rounds, but that seems to be gone with some breaking in and a couple of cleanings to remove the copious amount of oil it was shipped in. And I've shot about 60 rounds of Hornady Critical Defense ammo through the gun with no issue.
In summary, I think this will fit nicely as a CCW backup/alternate to my Shield and it'll be a keeper. 6 days ago david t Great Customer service, BUDS contacted me about my wifes Ruger 9MM and told me they were out of stock so I picked the SCCY 9mm for her and I choose the Taurus Slim 9mm and a AR15 Bushmaster with red dot scope for myself all were shipped within 2 weeks and I received at my FFL checked them out they were perfect and I got to shoot them this past weekend all performed exceptionally well no problems. I would def recommend BUDs Guns to anyone who wants a reliable firearms dealer online. 1 month ago Show More Reviews...
