My first addition to my arsenal

I picked up my first ever firearm a couple weeks back. It's a Sig Pro 2009 9mm. I purchased it from a neighbor who is actually in law enforcement. He purchased this gun from a friend before entering the academy and can't use it as a carry weapon so was just collecting dust at his house. We went to the range and I shot a few different guns (XDM, Glock - competition, Smith and Wesson tactical) and with this one I was the most accurate of all that I tried. To give you an idea, on my last 5 rounds for the day I had 3 within the X-ring, 1 in the 10 ring, and 1 in the 8 ring from 10 yards so I was happy!

It has a really long trigger pull which I'm not a huge fan of yet, but for some reason I was able to shoot a lot more steady than with the short trigger like on the XD. It also has a very simple safety that's easy to read (unlike the XD-grip safety and the Glock double trigger safety) and had about the perfect weight to be comfortable to hold but still felt solid when firing. It came with a full cleaning kit, a box of ammo, 5 clips, a lock, and a resource next door who knows quite a bit about it so I'm pretty happy with my first purchase. I'm now up for range days whenever someone wants to go so hopefully I can get a few rounds through and get a good feel for it.

Congrats Adam! I'm curious about the XDM and would like to try it out at the range, but like you I will need to try out several before buying. I like the SIG also good choice and congrats again.

Nice man, is that a safety on the slide? I hadn't heard of the 2009, I've shot and enjoyed a 2022 but never a 2009.
Congrats!

Yeah, that's the safety switch. There's a big red that shows when it's ready to go so it's really easy check. I really like it already, but wouldn't mind reducing the trigger weight or the length of pull somehow if I could.

Heya, I just did some reading about this as it is the first SigPro I've ever seen with a manual safety and sure enough, that's not a SP2009, that an SP2009-9-BMS. Apparently quite rare and very hard to get ahold of, congrats, you've got a pretty unique little shooter there.

Gunsmiths & trigger jobs are your friend.

I wonder if it's just the slide, because mine won't cock the hammer back and doesn't have a short trigger... could a custom slide be a possibility?

Could be, but that strikes me as being very odd. Do Sig barrels/slides have serial numbers like Glocks? If so, see if they match. Do you have the original box? How is that marked?

Sometimes gun manufacturers use parts bin stuff to save some money, but it's atypical and there are sometimes fit issues, I don't think Sig would have done that here.

The only location of the serial number that I saw is under the bottom of the barrel - i guess would be the body of the gun in front of the trigger guard. Didn't notice it printed anywhere else. Would it be possible to look up the info on it based on the number?

I don't have the original box for it, just the blue case in the background of the 3rd picture but I can look to see what original documentation is with it.

Call up Sig, they'll tell you everything about the pistol from when it was made to how many were sold and where.

I'll try to give them a call this weekend and see what the deal is. I should also ask them about the short trigger kit I keep seeing online, and see if it does what I'm thinking it does and shortens the pull some. I'll let you guys know what I find out.

Does anyone have a gunsmith they trust that can put in a softer trigger spring for me?

It's been confirmed - it's a 2009-9-BMS.

Thanks SmartDrug for pointing out that I should check into it. Looks like I got a pretty special gun as my first ever firearm purchase!

Recent additions - magazine holder and IWB holster. Given to me by my neighbor in law enforcement. The holder was missing a button and he couldn't use it so I cut off the straps and works just fine. He also upgraded holsters a few times and this was one of his originals. Does the job, fits the weapon and should I never need it for CC it will work just great.
