Several Glocks in the stable, and as of yesterday afternoon I picked up a new MK9 Elite. I only had a few minutes on the way home to run about a dozen rounds through it but I was blown away by the accuracy - all within 3 inches out to 15 yards off hand having never shot this gun before. The trigger feels longer than it really is but it is smooth. I might just have found my new favorite carry gun! Two questions. I am interested in wood grips for it and searching various forums tells me the factory wood grips are most popular. I like the look of the smooth grips over the checkered but worry about them not having good grip or being slippery. Anyone have experience with that? Secondly I was actually looking at a standard MK9 but they also had a new elite 98 for $20 less so I went with that. I know that means the gun has probably sat in a distribution warehouse for 7 or 8 years but I understand the only difference between the older elite 98 and the newer ones is the bevel in the mag well. Is that correct? Any concerns with buying the older model? Thanks!
