i know ordering firearms over the internet is not everyone`s cup of tea but you might try volusia top gun` shop in daytona ,fla ( ph. i-386-310-7993 ) . thats where i got mine ( shipped to local gunstore ) and the only place i can find that has any . the sccy factory is just down
the street from them . good luck--------------- checked with volusa top gun this afternoon oct.26 and they don`t have any -i have a
standing order for 2 of them . maybe they they stopped production for some reason -mine has a 600 serial number .

Both are .355 boolits just the 9mm cases are ~ 2 mm longer.

Recoil felt is very personal.
