Stainless frame 9mm Semi-auto

I am looking for a 9mm handgun with a stainless frame and slide (other than the S&W 5906). I would also consider a polymer frame and stainless slide (other than S&W Sigma). It would help if it was current production, becuase I know several companies have discontinued pistols that meet this description. Also, when I say stainless, I actually mean stainless. No blue or any finish over stainless, and no alloy frames that look like stainless. If anyone can think of pistols that meet these criteria, please post them! Thanks!!!

Out of production S&W 639, but they are available for reasonable prices on the used market.

Current production is the PC 952-2.

The M&P pistols are plastic, er, polymer/stainless. Despite the similarity of the hinged trigger to that of the Sigma, they are NOT redesigned Sigmas.

Ruger KP95 (poly frame/stainless slide and internals) --my favorite...can't beat it's durability, reliability, or price :)

Taurus 24/7 or Mil-Pro w/ Stainless slide & polymer frame.

Why do you want an all-stainless gun? Cosmetics? Rust-resistance? Weight (and recoil reduction)?

There are a few exceptions, but most of the Sigs and Berettas that are "stainless" are actually alloy frames with a satin-silver finish. Both companies did make some fairly rare guns with all stainless frames, but these are by far the minority.

Are you sure about that?

Looking at SigArms site, they show the following weights:

P226 Elite - 34.2 ounces
P226 Elite Stainless - 42.2 ounces

The only difference between the two should be the materials used (i.e. stainless creating the heavier gun).

Zeroskillz, the pic you posted is a 229 Elite, not a 226 Elite. Just thought I'd let you know.

Wroops. Too many pix in photobucket. Lemme correct that. The one I have on hand is the 226.
There, that's better.
I've also got a 220 ST CPO on hand...

I stand corrected: You're right about the current model Sig Elite Stainless. But the Beretta "stainless" are mostly alloy frames. I believe that is true of a number of other guns as well.

^FourTeeFive - I had posted your comments on SigForum to get clarification, and they also agreed with you about the standard Beretta 92's as being stainless slides on alloy frames.

I have a P226ST,and thought there was no way there was any alloy in that because of the weight (about 42 ounces, though not sure as it's a pre-Elite model).

How about a Kahr K9 or MK9. Both of those are stainless. Good shooters, too. :)

Taurus 24/7 Pro , I own 2. Great guns for not a lot of cash, I carry one everyday and it is 100% flawless. I also have one with 9700 flawless rounds though it. They also make it in 9mm .40 and it comes in a long slide version if you want

Its little bother..MILLENNIUM Pro PT145, another great gun, I do own one that has been perfect through thousands of rounds, 10+1 in 45acp or 12+1 9mm also comes in .40

Taurus PT911 SS 15+1 9mm, dont own one but wish I did they also make it in .40

http://www.taurususa.com/images/imagesMain/911SS-15.jpg


Taurus PT92 9mm PT100 or 101 .40s&w I own the blue PT92, its a work horse and 100% reliable

I have a 220st and a 220 elite carry. There is a 12oz difference in weight, 3/4 of a #. In a handgun that's a lot of weight. You really notice the difference in the frame when you field strip the gun and hold the frame w/o the slide.

There are also some 1911s in 9mm. Springfield probably makes the least expensive one.
