    I'm looking for a 9mm semi auto...

    1. Just as reliable as a GLOCK 26. (Not almost... I want one that is just as reliable.)

    2. Same size or smaller than a GLOCK 26.

    3. But is slimmer than the G26.

    4. And must be hammer fired.

    5. A manual safety would be nice.

    6. No Kel Tecs.

    A Sig P239 might fit your bill, but it is quite a bit heavier than a Glock 26.

    M&P9c, XDsc, and kahr PM9 are the same size but striker fired.
    Beretta Px4 Compact and Hk USP Compact are both chunky monkey's.

    This is a tough question... are you looking for a ccw?

    The Rohrbaugh fills all your requirements except the safety.

    A Springfield Armory EMP 9 would come sort of close, but its grip is a bit longer than the G26's and also costs about double the price of a G26. I have not personally shot an EMP, but heard/read nothing but great things about them (most say it is very reliable).

    If you want "hammer fired with a safety" seems like you'll have to go with a micro 1911, like AZGlock13 said they are really expensive....Unlike AZ most of what I read on these don't give them high marks for reliability, until they get alot of extra factory tuning.....
    Most people that want a "thinner Glock26" buy Kahrs,. either a P9 or CW9. They are striker fired and have no external safety but are reliable. I've had one of each and both were rock solid performers.

    think you are asking for too much dude...remember there is no such thing as a perfect gun...if its mechanical, it will fail at some point, and all things have their drawbacks

    u gonna have to compromise man

    I'm not overly familiar with it, but it sounds like a CZ Rami might fit close to what you're looking for.

    If you want a very slim 9mm look at the Walther PPS.

    Closest thing i can think of is the Colt new agent in 9mm.
    But seeing your criteria you'll want perfect concealability as well as combat pistol ergonomics.

    The HK P2000SK comes close. It has no manual safety. At the slide stops, which is the widest point on the gun, it is just a tad thicker than the G26.

    S&W M&P Compact in 9mm. Virtually identical in dimensions to the Glock 26 and it's 12+1.

    Get the Kahr, you won't regret it. If you end up not liking it, it keeps it's value pretty good.

    If you decide to drop the hammer requirement you could get a Ruger SR9c. Its striker fired and manuel safety.

    Colt made a 1911 style pistol, albeit in .45 ACP, called the CCO. The CCO was built on a Commander frame with 4 1/4 bbl, and the grip was shortened to Officer's model length. The longer bbl & slide, and resultant longer recoil spring travel will provide the reliability you seek. The shortened grip will provide the concealabilty you seek. Last, the 1911 base provides the hammer & manual safety you seek. I'm sure any of the reputable 1911 smiths or custom builders would make you a 9mm CCO - if you're willing to pay for it.

    S&W 3914!

    Based on the criteria you mentioned I would say the 3914 or the 3913 would fit the bill. I never leave home without my 3914, it's my daily ccw and I would take it over a Glock any day!

    Here's mine....

    I have 2 3913s. Unfortunately, I can't say they are "just as reliable" as a Glock 26, because mine have been MORE reliable than the Glock 26 they replaced.

    I had a CS45, nice gun, but limited as far as capacity, accesories, and heavier than my Glock by over 4 ozs, and even more blocky than the Glock. I never had a cs9 or shorty 40, but did consider it. If you look over at the smith and wesson forums, you can find most of these guns over a week of looking. They make that Cs in 9,40, and 45.

    Well you had the Kel-Tec PF-9 nailed until your last question.

    What about the Kahr PM9?

    Okay, this probably isn't slimmer, so how about a Walther PPS?
