The Sphinx SDP Compact pistol was on display at the KRISS/Sphinx booth at the 2012 SHOT Show.Â The SDP is a 9mm pistol that is made in Switzerland.
The SDP Compact uses a traditional double-action/single-action system.Â The DA trigger pull is rated at 8.16 pounds, while the SA pull is around 3.3 pounds.
The frame is a little more non-traditional, as it has two halves:Â an upper aluminum and a lower polymer.Â The upper portion of the frame is hard-anodized aluminum, with full-length guides rails machined into the metal.Â The rails use Teflon inserts to help reduce wear.
The lower portion of the SDP Compact is made from a special formula of plastic.Â It has three interchangeable grip sizes to custom fit each shooter.
The slide is machined from solid steel.Â It has a low profile appearance, similar to the CZ P-07 Duty.
Sights on the SDP are from Defince, a sister company of Sphinx.Â The front sight is a tritium/fiber optic combination sight, and the rear is a two-dot, red tritium.
Magazine capacity is 15 rounds.
An MSRP is not yet determined.Â Shipping is expected in late-March or early-April.
