    I’m tired of polymer. What’s your favorite current production all metal 9mm? I’m not a Sig P series fan, but there is the Beretta (Taurus), Kahr, a 1911, maybe a CZ....what else am I missing?

    The only one I have in that caliber... is a SIG P938.

    And it is a Jewel.

    Tell you what...

    That li'l rascal, with 147 gr. std. pressure ammo, is a three-finger-grip ray-gun.

    Shoots better than me at 25 yards... like 4-5 inches... one handed!

    Really a shooter.

    It's my "trunks/tuxedo" carry.

    Steel frame, for me... starts and ends with the SA 1911-A1.

    ...although the CZ/Sig/S&W/Ruger/etc... all have their following.

    CZ 75 SP-01. I couldn't find one several years ago and settled for a P-09 with the polymer frame. Still would like an all steel SP-01.

    I'm partial to the Beretta too but I lean towards the Vertec grip. Fits me better.

    I enjoy the HK P7M8. Easy gun to shoot well.

    I have the same gun in 9mm, but do not have a photo on my phone. Kahr K9/MK9 or CZ P01 Compact are my favorites.

    CZ75 or clone thereof is my favorite.

    A 9mm 1911 (or derivative) is a joy to shoot.

    My Sig P-series is awesome.

    The full-sized Berettas (or Taurus clones) are great.

    I think they are making Browning High Power clones in Turkey right now.

    There are doubtless plenty of others, but those are some of my favorites, off the top of my head.

    I’m very pleased with my Sig P938.

    Too bad Star went out of business. Their Firestar pistols are nice. The Firestar is in between the P938 and a RIA compact 1911 (3 1/2” barrel) as far as overall size/dimensions. I have both the M43 9mm and M40 40S&W Firestars. I used to carry the M40 daily

    My favorite would be an SVI infinity, #2 would be an STI.

    My favorite:

    Dan Wesson Valkyrie CCO in 9mm

    Second favorite, HD gun and occasional carry (only because the DW replaced it, it's so much lighter)
    [​IMG]
    Sig 226 Legion SAO

    My third favorite, which probably will top the list once I send it in for some trigger work and a beavertail job.

    Hi Power MKIII edit: guess this model isn't current production, but one of those Turkish ones slicked up by C&S would still be good, by all accounts

    Come to think of it, that's all my metal 9mms. Everything else is plastic or in .45. Also one might guess I have a thing for SAO and cocked and locked.

    Do not own one of these, but seems interesting.

    That would be my CZ-75B,,,
    It's the only full size 9mm that fits my K-Frame sized hands.

    Way more inherent accuracy than I can utilize,,,
    Several thousands of rounds downrange,,,
    I can't remember the last time it failed.

    It doesn't hurt that it also came in a .22 rimfire version.

    My favourite is the SIG-Sauer P226 or P229. There are the CZ 75B, 75BD, 85B, and so on, the Beretta 92FS, the Pardini GT9 and GT9-1, Tanfoglio (EAA Witness). There are also various turkish all metal pistols, basically clones of CZ, HP35, Beretta 92. There is the Stoeger Cougar (also turkish made, Stoeger is owned by Beretta).
    My father has the CZ 75B brushed stainless and the CZ P-01, both excellent.
    I instead have the SIG-Sauer P226 AL SO (pic from Bignami S.p.A.) and the Pardini GT9-1 silver:

    Man that is a nice set up Cokeman. Not to mention the fact I love Kahrs. Love the holster. Mitch Rosen I presume. (I have two of them). How do you like the MK to the K model. Same question for STYX
