    Figures. With many switching back to the 9mm I’d like to pick up another .40 to toss into the safe.....but I want a steel frame. I’m over polymer and alloy. I like good ole steel.

    I'm sure there's still quite a few All Steel CZs in 40 Smith & Wesson available

    I like the DAO for the clean lines and no safety.
    Great guns!

    Those are Hogue grips.
    I love them but they are pricey.

    Just handled a M&P9 2.0 5 FDE. I may have to buy one of these. I mean I REALLY may have to buy one of these!

    Forgot when the value-line discussion came up a page back: A friend of mine loved my 5946, couldn't afford one, got a deal on a 915. This one:
    sw_915.gif
    Sorry, it was a while ago. I don't seem to have saved the full res scan I took of it :(

    Absolutely how a lot of products should be made. Same forging, same lockwork, same stocks, etc. Less surface finish (notably rough and textured), simpler sights, and so on. Fitting was to the parts in the gun, so while it had the same number of lugs, my barrel wouldn't fit. Apparently, this is a good example of why metal guns are made less now. It's /expensive/ to make them, and a many step process.

    Anyway: this thing shot just fine, and was 100% reliable.

    The 3rd gen S&W autos were the best production 10mm guns ever made IMO. I have a 1006, 1086 and something I call a 1071- - it’s a 1066 slide on a 1076 frame. Big, beefy guns that soak up the recoil and can run forever with full power loads, yet still fit my smallish hands much better than a Glock 20. They were guns ahead of their time. Kentucky State Police carried the 1076 for a number of years before stepping down to 40 S&W.
