XR9 Prototype at SHOT Show

This is incredibly interesting. It's a subcompact pistol that's 0.7" shorter than a Glock 26 and that, almost beyond belief, has a barrel that's 4.17" compared to the Glock's 3.46! It manages this by utilizing a slightly different method of feeding. The rounds are not stripped from the magazine by the forward motion of the slide during closing. They are actually stripped backwards by the extractor during the initial opening of the slide! It's really quite ingenious. Check out the site, it has some cool stuff.

Tip o' the hat to NRAhab via Justin.
