I have had My 809 compact for about 1 week. Took it to the range and ran 150 rounds through it. 100 Blazer brass 115gr & 50 124gr hard cast lead low power loads. The gun ran good with no malfunctions. The gun was shooting about 1-2 inches left, I noticed the front sight was shift to the right a bit. After centering the front sight it shot right on. The single action trigger is decent with a bit of creep. The double action is way to heavy, feels like it will snap the trigger bar if you shoot a lot of double action. I also noticed I can put 14 rounds into the 13 round magazine, 14+1 in a nice package not bad. The slide is fairly thin .90 near the top and about 1 inch where it bumps out a bit. I really like how it takes down like a Glock but you do not have to pull the trigger. And the rails the slide rides on are small so that should help it be more reliable. I like that the compact does not have ambi controls except the magazine release, which on my gun is very stiff I am going to oil it good and hopefully that will help. I have several other guns so I am going to keep shooting it without cleaning till I get a malfunction.
