Grand Power Stribog SP9A3 2000 Round Test | Sootch00

The Grand Power Stribog SP9A3 is a 9mm pistol made in Slovakia that has been hugely popular. There have been some reliability issues, so we decided to do a 2000 round test with their new bolt and magazine upgrades. This pistol is softer-shooting and is easier to shoot on the cheek.

The Grand Power Stribog SP9A3 with the upgraded bolt and new mag followers are a part of the recent upgrades to make this 9mm pistol more reliable. The bolts on the Grand Power Stribog are beefy because they are designed for full-auto machine guns. The bottom section on the new bolt has been trimmed down considerably and this gives a lot more surface to the bottom area, with it relieved up to a smaller size. This new bolt system has a better finish, and there are changes to the rear profile with an additional hole.

Testing out the new upgrades at the range while shooting with 2000 rounds of shooting was super reliable. There were no issues with the magazine, and it seemed to shoot very smooth. When compared with the standard magazine shooting 60 rounds, there was only one malfunction through the old magazine.

With the roller lock bolt system, it takes the recoil down from the standard SP9AI. It shoots from the front and does not have that muzzle rise.
