    Is there a big difference in the a3 other than the reciprocal ?

    Isn't the A3 the newest version and it has delayed blowback?

    Yep... This is a good video where the dude fires the A1 and A3 and talks about the difference.

    He seems pretty excited about the new delayed blowback system...

    Yeah the A3 is a delayed roller lock. Not really designed like the HK but it accomplishes the same thing. It shoots softer than the blowback A1. Stays on target easier.

    The A1 I have is a non reciprocating gen 2 model.

    Can you tell a huge difference shooting the a1 vs the a3 suppressed?

    Oddly enough the A3 is a little louder. The bolt is much heavier and the spring is much stiffer on the A1. The A1 Stribog is a very quiet gun as is. The A3 is definitely smoother but it does have a bit of ejection port bark that the A 1 doesnt.

    Also, when they become more plentiful, Gun Zone Deal or whatever they are now tends to offer them in some cool cerakoted options including... Multicam black.

    (I love Multicam black even though it's a stupid camo combo in terms of function)

    I just followed your recommendation and checked out that site. Never seen it before.

    It says the sp9a3 in black multicam is in stock, and it looks really cool. I might have to get one also...

    In your pic, at the top of the thread, it looks like it has flip up front and rear sites, built in at both ends of the picatinny rail...

    Its not plastic like magpul plastic. Theyre plastic like they put another set in the box because they know for certain you will break them plastic.

    I just ordered the black one with adjustable tailhook brace.

    No tax! I love it when online stores do not charge tax.

    I can't wait to take this thing to the range and waste a bunch of 9mm ammo...

    Because you prefer to pay it when you file taxes?

    Mine's going to be 3 weeks it says since I got the multicam black. I am keeping it as a pistol, so no VFG for me, but I'll likely put a handstop on it. I'll order a Trilug and one of these for it: https://hbindustries.net/store/shop/gp-stribog-extended-bolt-stop/

    Also, for an optic, I am looking at the Holosun HE509T if it ever releases. Adjustable between plain red dot and a eotech-type circle and dot. Enclosed reflex. It weighs... 1.72oz and has the picatinny mount built in...

    Thats actually a good choice for the Stribog . It has a low sight line and shouldnt require a riser at all. g
