Problem with the M9 was proper up keep. Never, outside of the shooting team did I see a round count log kept on the pistol range. Guide rod and recoil spring, locking block and plunger, hammer spring, etc... All need to be regularly scheduled for replacement.

When properly monitored and maintained, they work just fine...

Ain't the best pistol in the world, but they definitely were not the worst. Heavy, low capacity compared to the likes of a Glock 19/17 (my go to for a every day carry). However, accuracy was far superior with the M9 IMHO...not that my opinion really matters and stuff.

Personally, I liked the M9 and still have one to this day. Never had an issue, but never had to use it in combat thankfully.
