I am going to buy a new in box Colt 9x23 for $900 which was sitting in the display case for over a year. I have read several threads and websites that praise the 9x23 cartridge. While you may say that I could have a custom gun built for a little more or convert a 9mm to 9x23, I want to hear from anyone that has shot either the Colt or Springfield factory 9x23's and what are your opinions on these guns. Many people can and will always buy the best that they can afford.....well at this time this is the best that I can do and would really appreciate any response. Thanks in advance for your reply!
