    I have the bug for a super-accurate 9mm auto, and since I cant afford the obvious king of the hill Sig 210 its between these 2.
    I have a Smith 52 in .38 wadcutter and it is pretty dang amazing, so I'm leaning toward the Smith in the cool silver box. But the Sig has the edge in look...and I could use it for IDPA. But the Smith would work just fine for Steel Challenge...
    I'm looking for something that will put every bullet in one hole with good loads at 15 yards. Will either of these 2 do it? is there something else I should be considereing?

    I do not believe you can use the X-Five for IDPA. Only the aluminum framed Tactical model makes weight and it is still a smidgen too big long at 8.8" to fit The Box at 8.75". Or maybe you could angle it a bit and not wedge it too tight to get out. Check before you buy. Bruce Gray could do a neat job of trimming the beavertail to fit.

    If you want best accuracy with a 9mm, see if you can find a cop selling his S&W PPC9. They are only sold to cops for use in police only NRA PPC competition, but there is no law against resale and they do turn up on the market every once in a while. The only one I ever saw in action was fabulously accurate, better than the 952 in side by side comparison.
