Default I really didn't mean to buy a used MK9 Elite 98...

...BUT IT HAD THOSE DARNED BEAUTIFUL WOODEN GRIPS!

The picture of it just sat there mocking me, and the seller kept reducing the price until I couldn't take it any more. I finally broke down and in an email said


With any luck it should be here by the end of the week.

And no pictures to keep us content while we suffer your wait with you?

I suffer for others waiting nearly as much as I do my own. Waiting is tough.

Sweet Mary and Joseph, would you look at the wood grain on those grips.

That's love at first sight right there.

Exactly. I just couldn't pass it up. That and the fact the seller kindly sold it to me for a little over $500 (did I mention it has dim night sights that will need relamping?) were the straws that broke the camel's back.

Well that's ok then ... if you didn't really mean to do it then you can't really be held liable, can you?

I like the way you think.

I've not owned a pistol with wood grips before, but I very much like a friend's who had them on his 1911. At this rate I may need to get some grips for my K40 and SIG P230, and obviously I'll need to bone up on my wood grip care.

What will intrigue me is the perceived difference between the Elite's trigger pull versus my PM9's.

$500 for an MK9? I'm just never in the right place at the right time

Unless you count the NIB Sig P238 I just snagged for that price.

Today I saw a regular MK40 with plastic grips at my LGS for $800. I think you did good MrToad... yes you did.
