    So with the M9 being retired from active service is there a possibility of them becoming surplus pistols available for purchase to the public? Anyone heard of anything about this?

    Maybe you can get them through the CMP in 75 years or so :P

    To be honest I am looking for a cheap beatup M92FS/M9 to practice some gunsmithing on as I don't want to completely strip down one of my current Beretta pistols. I would imagine the condition of most of the military M9's would be such that they would be offered really cheap.

    Not the case with the CMP 1911s.

    I got an Italian made 92 for $279 + shipping. Right now they are $299. Solid guns, shoot well; mine could use some re-bluing. I updated my M9 to G-model and was going to use the ambi-controls on the older 92, but the internals of the safety are different enough to not work without some machining, and after almost losing the strong-side plunge and spring 5 times.. I decided to return the original controls for now.

    I like the idea of getting surplus M9s or better yet, the A1s with the rails as the auto-firing SIGs move into service... I also think the CMP would not release them before our grand-children passed.. :/

    I’d be surprised if they were ever to be available to civilian sale.
    It took almost 60yrs for 1911’s to become available.

    Just replace the mags. They suck. M9’s are great pistols. GI mags, not so much.
