2012 SHOT Show Media Day: Sphinx Polymer Pistols

I made it by the Sphinx booth to try out their new next generation of 9mm polymer pistols. The Sphinx guns are made in Switzerland and are expensive! Christophe Guignard, VP Sales & Marketing said the MSRP of the new Sphinx SPD is $1,200.00. Wow. Don't get me wrong these are nice pistols packed with innovative features but I'd have to win one to get one.

These pistols are built like a brick shit house. There is a two part frame. The upper part is made from aluminum while the lower part is made from polymer. The slide is made from steel. There are Teflon inserts, MIL-STD 1913 aluminum, TiAN, Interchangeable grip sizes, Tritium sights, Picatinny rail, ambidextrous decocking lever and magazine catch, DA/SA, ergonomic, 3-component grip.

I really enjoyed shooting this gun and with the suppressor attached too. Made for nice rapid firing. Felt really nice in the hands, like a Swiss watch.

Stainless, 2 x SDP and SDP Compact
