I been looking for one too for past several months with no sucess. Couple of the local gun shop I went to didn't believe SA was building such pistol. Who knows... perhapse SA stopped making it.

I saw one a few weeks ago at a gun shop. It was a matte blue 5" Loaded Model 9103 (that is the only full size lightweight they sell). It was pretty light compared to the steel frame...like 30 oz compared to 38.

I know they still make them because another shop that I usually deal with said they could order me one for $610.

I have one of these bad boys.

Fit is great. Nicely accurate and reliable, but the finish wore off faster in one week than Rosie O'Douchebag chowing down on prime rib at Old Country Buffet.

I dunno if it was Tetra Oil or what, but on the leading edges of the dust cover and where the frame/slide meet, the finished peeled off.

I have just sent the pistol off to Virgil Tripp to have the frame Cobra Coated and to have the slide Cobra Chromed.

Would I buy the pistol again? Sure would. It is a good pistol.

I have one that I carry everyday. It feeds everything perfectly. I had a Ultra Comact before this pistol, but I like the fullsize lightweight better as my daily pistol.
