M-41 here. She's a real gem!
Well I have had a odel 39-2, 2 moldel 59’s ans a SW1911 they were all great guns while I owned them.
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.
Im right there with you. Not only that, I don't mind the weight when it comes to carrying them.
I'm sure there's still quite a few All Steel CZs in 40 Smith & Wesson available
When loaded, the CZ 75 in 9mm weighs more than a loaded 1911.
Standard factory magazines for the .40 version are 12 rounds. Mec-gar makes 14 round mags that are a little extended past the grip. See link below.
Some 3rd Gen S&W joy.
I like the DAO for the clean lines and no safety.
Nice grips on that 1086. Who made them?
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!
I own 2 shield 9mm 1.0 and one recently purchased 637. I cant say enough great things about the shields.
Police-trade-in 5906, love it!
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:
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.
