Sarsilmaz CM9 First Range trip.
« on: July 08, 2017, 09:47:02 PM »
Well I finally got a chance to take my Sarsilmaz CM9 to the range today.

Wanted to try multiple types of ammo to see if then CM9 was finicky on the type of ammo it will shoot.

I fired 300 rounds. I took some factory 115g brass Remington UMC, PMC Bronze, and some Perfecta. I also took some Federal 115g aluminum, some 115g steel cased Tula, some 115 nickel plated ball, some 124g nickel JHPs, and some brass cased 115g reloads.

I loaded full mags of which ammo I happened to grab first and started firing.

No issues at all using this method

Later on I started mixing mags. I loaded a round of steel Tula then a round of nickel HP, and then factory brass ammo.

After I had loaded a couple of mags this way, I had my first issues.

I had 2 FTE (JHPs) and a failure to chamber (Tula).

This combination really tripped up the CM9.

After visually inspecting the Tula round, it looked to be slightly deformed and slightly longer than the other ammo I had on hand..

I finished that mag and decided not to shoot anymore of the Tula I had with me. I've had trouble with it in other pistols and I don't think I'll be purchasing any more.

The trigger on the CM9 is really nice. The DA is a little heavy and caused me to launch a few fliers as I'm not familiar with it at all. The SA trigger is really good IMO! A very small amount of take up, a crisp break, and short audible reset. I'm extremely happy with it.

As you see from the pics, it groups well. It was shooting to the left and a thought about adjusting the sights, then I remembered that several of my other pistols do this too.

I'm sure it's me as the odds that so many of my pistols would all shoot left can't be very good. :rofl_smal

All in I'm very happy so far. For what I paid for this pistol, it is exceptional!

I think I'm going to try and replace the front sight with a Fiber Optic sight to make it easier on my eyes. The older I get the harder it is to get a sight picture.

Anyways, I'll post a couple targets from today range trip. As I said, when I did my part, the CM9 put together some pretty good groups.

Nice shooting.  Other than a couple fliers those are all combat effective hits!!  I'm the same as you, I tend to shoot a little left, especially when I first get a new gun.  I tend to improve as I shoot it more and get used to the trigger. 

It is odd though that most of my Turkish CZ derived guns I tend to shoot left and sometimes low with me behind the trigger.  If after a few range sessions I still haven't brought it right some I go ahead and adjust the rear sight in it's dovetail.  Some say no on this, but I've been shooting for 40 years and it's way more effective for me to adjust the gun to me than to try to figure out why I'm shooting left.  Plus the fact that I don't shoot left with all my handguns either. 

I wouldn't adjust nothing on yours though, your groups are fine.

Nice job. I love my CM9. Better trigger than the B6P in my opinion. I tend to shoot low & right but that's my trigger deficiency. Need more practice. I never shot steel Tula but I did use aluminum Federal from Walmart in my B6P and had a couple FTF. I attest it to loading the mag full and simply just took one round less out and it worked fine after that. Can't beat the bang 4 buck with Sarsilmaz pistols. Going to give a good cleaning and then try some Speer Lawman 124 clean fire.
