You also got to prove that the performance of my CS9 is thanks to the user, not the gun; giving new emphasis to my credo,

If you can't hit the target...

get a bigger target.

Thanks for everything today Jeppo! Enjoyed talking to you and shooting with you!

Those little guns are just harder to shoot well. I always have to focus on all the basics when shooting them.

You are a good shot. I wouldnt want you shooting at me, especially with that P30!

The Chiefs Special just takes a little getting use to and a bunch of practice. Just like the J-frames that preceded them. Thanks again! Regards 18DAI

Tell me I don't need this:

The seller lives in my town and it would be an all too easy transaction.

I'm going to make the most generous offer of my life that will save you at least $500.

Send me $100 and I'll make that gun disappear.

The CS9 in the linked pic appears to be one the later production models (like mine).

The price is what it is, because it's not like they're making any more of them.

Or, spend around $300 to $350 for a used one off the big auction board. Refurbish and deep clean it. Then shoot the hell out of it and carry it guilt free. Regards 18DAI

Wow!!! Nice gun for sure, but that is a boatload of money. And that's especially true after adding in shipping & transfer fees.

Hmmm. I think I better call my insurance agent tomorrow and have him raise the limit on my firearms coverage.

I'd agree, that's quite a bit for a CS9. Congrats to the seller on that auction.

I've never paid over $500 for any of my CS9's, and actually just picked one up for under $400 (there's plenty of LEO trade-in CS9's on the net right now).

Sorry, forum rules don't allow linking live auctions. I will say that the rash of used CS9's on Gunbroker are apparently LEO trade-ins with dim/dead Novak-style factory night sights. One seller in particular has been starting the auctions for these out at a very low price - $250 - and seems to have a number of them.

It is with great sadness that I must report Tucker Gunleather has lost the form for the CS9, so I canít get the rough side out leather I wanted

Why thanks 18DAI! You had to go present another convincing write up.. great job, I had to go buy one! As if I needed another gen3, are there any gen3 anonymous forums?! Now please tell me more about the TercGen grip, is it thinner and less sticky? How does one go about getting one?

VERY THIN! Not sticky, not too slick. Just right!

The TercGen grip is what the CS9 should have come with originally. With it, I think the CS9 would have been even more popular.

Using a TercGen grip and a flat, rounded 3913TSW baseplate on the mag, I can pocket carry the CS9.

NDFRC you are really going to like the CS9. And with a TercGen grip, you are going to LOVE the CS9! Regards 18DAI

Has anyone changed their CS9 factory sights out? I would like to change the sights out on mine. Trijicon has been the only brand that I've came across. Looking to see what other options are out there, if any. Thanks

Mine are so close to dead that I can hardly see them. 18DAI mentioned relamping may be possible but I haven't had time to check.

Trijicon will relamp them for around $75. Contact them for availability and pricing. Regards 18DAI

Donít forget about the olí Big Dot setup, which I think is ideal for little guns like the CS9. Mine came with Trijicon night sights, but Iíd trade for these in a heartbeat

I thought that the Value Line guns had different dovetails? Or was that just for the rear sight?

Thanks for the great review as always. Like Bam Bam I don't like them as much as the 3913NL or my 4513TSW 6 round. But if we all liked the same thing...
Now I have a couple CS 9s and 45s and I have to thank you for our contribution as I believe if I wanted to sell them (I don't) there value just increased!!

Thank you my friend!

As to the preference for the 6-round 4513TSW, I agree with you. Strongly! But - if the CS45 winds up in an evidence locker, I really wont care. I would miss the 4513TSW.

Now the little CS9 is a different story. I really like this little gun. And you cant beat it when its hot out and you really dont want to carry a heavy full size gun, or cant dress around one. Fills a niche, for me. Best regards, 18DAI

Default Chiefs Special 9mm

My little CS9 just puts a smile on my face whenever I take it to the range. Never had so much fun trying to master the draw to DA to SA transition. Today I got a solid fist size group center mass at 21 ft. on a 3 shot draw. I want to practice every day honestly, to see just how well I can meld man and machine with this one. I can only get out to shoot about once per week tho. The CS9 pushes straight back into my palm with this custom grip. I canít ask for a more perfect carry piece right now. Although Iíve got my eye out for a 4040pd now 🧐

Yup, sheís the only gun I brought today. She gets all my attention lately

I have one in 45ACP and one in 40 S&W. I sort of keep my eyes open for one in 9mm so I can have three little chiefs.

The front sight of many of the Value Line Series is different, with a wide, thin sight base (908/910/457). The CS Series uses the normal dovetails for the front and rear sights, but the rear sights ride on top of the slide instead of having a milled out area in the rear.
