  • Hello from Texas
Herself is interested in getting another handgun and recently spotted one of these.

https://kriss-usa.com/pistols/compact/compact-alpha

Does anyone have any personal experience with these?  I have none and until recently did not know they existed.

Lot of positive reviews, Hickcock45, thetruthaboutguns, Handgun reiview, etc.

Since it is close to her beloved CZ-85 she loves the feel (although it was the arctic white color that attracted her attention at first, yes it matches her favorite cordless tool set, smh.)

Any help is always appreciated.

Sphinx is a very high grade Swiss made pistol exported here in the 90s but I haven't heard of them in awhile. Apparently, they are in a joint venture with Kriss now.

 The only negative I have ever heard is the lack of holsters available that fit it properly. Otherwise I hear it is a beauty of a gun. Good luck in the search!

Having a gun in your hand is much more effective than having the entire police department on the phone!
