S&W 910 accuracy

I've put about 2000+ rounds or so on my 910 chambered in 9mm. It's fun to shoot, 9mm is very cheap and I like the feel, however on paper this guns sucks. What's interesting is that Pat Sweeney raved about the accuracy in the S&W chronicles. Now, I'm not doubting that this could very well be my fault but when I look at my paper between my 910 and 686, something may be wrong.

At 7 yrds everything is roughly the same, at 14 the 686 (4" barrel) is on paper beautifully making tight groups but the 910 is nowhere near it. I've used different ammo for it, I've found the Rem UMC's wadcutters work well and are my personal favorite.

One thing I may contribute to this is the trigger pull, but I should be used to it by now, and it's by no means "bad."

Any ideas?

When shooting the 910, after the first shot just ease off the trigger until you feel the click as the sights line up on the target, squeeze the shot off. If you let off all the way on the trigger like on the revolver there is too much distraction taking up the slack and squeezing off. Leave the revolver at home until you prefect the auto. I have never seen a S&W that wouldn't put them all in the 10 ring in the right hands out to 25 yrds. Good luck.

And the funny thing is, I thought I found the guns happy point. In DA I seem to shoot better because I know when the gun will fire, but a lot of people have that same problem with any autoloader.

Not sure comparing a 686 revolver to an auto 910 is fair. My 686 is very accurate, but when I owned a 908, comparing to two would have been senseless. Sometimes the best comparison of paper target accuracy is to have other shooters try your gun. I've done exactly that and found not all shooters are created equal. For many reasons.

I fired a 910 once and it had to be one of the most accurate pistols I have ever fired...not including target pistols. Have someone else shoot it and see how they do.

extremely accurate.....switch those straight back strap grips for either hogue rubber (they have curved backstraps) or call S&W for oem curved backstraps grips, while your on the phone with s&w get the 5906's steel guide rod, and replace that poly one that came with your gun. It'll turn your 910 from glock like accurcy (read just alright) to tuned 1911 accuracy. No kidding, mine went to 2 " at 20 yards with winchester 115fmj. Only cost you $25.

Thanks! I'll look into that.

I had a 3913 as my first semi auto pistol, and it was terribly inaccurate with anything but 147gr bullets.

Try a heavier load.
