UMMM??I've held off getting one because of the extra mag non-availability, but holding one in my hand felt good enough that I'll do it at that price. Mags can't be unavailable forever, can they?
It does indeed have a narrow grip. I fixed that by added a pachmeyer rubber grip. It was actually designed for a Springfield xdm so I have to trim about a quarter inch off the bottom below the second finger groove. Now with the pearce pinky extension on the mag the gun is so comfy in my hand it's not even funny.The 709 I had was the two-tone model, and it shot just fine. I have large hands, and it was just too narrow in the grip area for me. I have the PT111 G2 now, and it feels "hand filling" compared to the 709 I had.
