Springfield Armory P9 LSP
« on: March 26, 2011, 06:34:30 PM »
Picked this up the other day, a bi-tone Model P9 Ultra IPSC LSP in 9mm. Thinking about doing an upgrade to the sights, and getting a few magazines, if I can figure out that puzzle. Sure feels like a quality piece.

icreek, nice looking P9.  Let us know how it runs.

I shot it today, one magazine, little low and to the left. The rear sights are really adjusted to the left side, I think they got bumped in shipping. They are the factory adjustable, and I guess you slide them in the dovetail for windage, and the screw is for elevation? It was cold today and it was different that shooting my poly XD guns. The trigger might take some getting used to, but I really like the gun.

Thinking about sending it to the SA Custom Shop for a Bomar styled rear and fiber front, calling them next week to see if they will even work on it.

If they won't, get in touch with Evolution Gun Works or Canyon Creek.

Nice looking pistols!  So is the P9 LSP based on a CZ75 or a Tanfoglio?  The trigger and trigger guard definitely look like an early CZ75, but I'm thinking it's a Tanfoglio for some reason.

Series 88 Tanfoglio design variant.  In this particular case, the trigger and the trigger guard are the varying features typically not seen on some of the other importers, except the early Swiss ITM/Sphinx. The grip, flat frame dustcover, frame beavertail, and Slide Configuration are all Series 88 Tanfoglio features.

Please note my first post in this thread.

Nice one.

I have a 40 IPSC ULTRA that is the Springfield LSP with Ports and an adjustable sight.  Very nice gun and it has an exceptional trigger.  I sold off all my other 40's because of it.  Why waste a round of 40 in anything else.

I have about 10,000 rnds down mine and I have noticed a quirk in it that you might want to be aware of.  When you are disassembling it for cleaning, it jams up when you try and slide the slide off the frame.  If you loop a finger over the hammer and pull the trigger back it will slide right off with no problems.

Briley and EGW still have parts for it if you need the basics.  I had briley put a new barrel in mine maybe 10 years ago and it worked great although I still like the ported better.  The ports work in 40.

I noted you guys had rounded trigger guards.  Mine is more squared off but my other p9 is rounded.  Anyone know when the change occurred or is that a unique feature of the IPSC Ultra model?

I saw your serial number and decided to check it out.

Mine is roughly twice the serial number of yours and I bought it new in the box in 1995.  Mine came in a blue box with all of the standard paperwork.  The series 88 firing pin block was removed and a note stating that it was done for a better trigger was included as I remember it.
