I recently added a S&W 915 to my collection, my first Smith autoloader (ok, I have a 22A, but that doesn't count). I got it for under $300 total, including shipping, FFL etc. Now, I'm old enough to remember the pre-Glock era, when local PDs had S&W autos. I also remember seeing a lot of ads in gun magazines back in the 90s; and the guns showed up fairly often in TV and movies- I think Don Johnson carried one in Miami Vice (although I thought he also had a Bren Ten), and I know Will Smith had one in MIB (this was when he was still a cop, you can tell it's a S&W when he tucks it into his waistband). What was the general consensus on these, when they were still in production? What was the price ranges, and were they as good/better than similarly priced competitors? I'm not interested in hashing out the "it's heavier than a Glock" arguments, I guess I'm trying to determine- did they match up with SIGs, Berettas, CZ's etc? Cheaper, more expensive? A worthy choice, or a piece of crap? I think it's a shame they're not made anymore. My Value Line 915 seems very smooth and well-made, and it would be nice to see more, not less, metal guns on the market.
