Discussion in 'Handguns: Autoloaders' started by ironworkerwill, Nov 12, 2016.
Mine came with a 25m test target showing a 1" group, and would do the same if I took my time. The Luger is also phenomenally accurate, and is the reason the Swiss demanded the P210 be as accurate as it is.
I have also gotten much better groups in general out of revolvers than 2-3".
If you want to discuss accuracy you need to know three things: distance, group size and procedure"
I Know the nature of this topic is rather unprofessional, informal, and subjective. It was supposed to be all these things...and fun!
Never shot any great groups with rimfire. I don't concentrate as well with rimfire for some reason.
A Sig 210 (don't own one but I've shot it, and FYI, the Sig was partly the design inspiration for the look of the Bren Ten's slide);
My Browning Buckmark;
Surprisingly, my 10mm S&W 1006 with certain handloads;
Any properly-tuned Colt Gold Cup of two decades ago.
The CZ 75 is also great
As you can see,I dont have any strikers so I cant give an opinion..
I loved mine in .357! It wasn't practical to carry but I should of kept it. It grouped very well and slung brass too far to find most times.
Question was not "what is the most accurate you have shot," twas "what is the most accurate autoloader you've shot" --pretty significant difference, especially considering most people can wring no more accuracy from an Ed Brown than a Hi Point (even avid shooters), because between hand shake/position and the realities of pistol sights, it's nearly impossible to shoot them as accurately as any rifle (and it's my personal but unpopular belief that Ransom rests and other bracing effectively change the pistol into a new configuration, similar to a rifle stock, and therefore only measure certain aspects of a design's accuracy; kind of silly to isolate the person from a gun designed to be shot by people at some level, similar to 'rail guns' with hydraulic remote triggers)
intrinsic accuracy I would have to say it's a toss-up between my S&W Model 945 and Model 52 pistols, with a Colt Series 70 Gold Cup not far behind. As far as which of my .22 rf autos are the most accurate, my Ruger MKII Government Model is slightly more accurate than my Smith Model 41 and Browning Medalist pistols are. Slightly.
SVI's are absolutely incredible guns. I got to try one out at a practice uspsa event once. They are well worth the price.
The Pardini GT45 on the right will shoot 10-shots of match 45ACP into 1.2" from a mechanical rest at 50 yards. The Pardini SP next to it will shoot 10-shots of match 22lr into about 0.3"-0.4" at 50 yards from a mechanical rest. As for me? I'm ranked Expert in Bullseye with them (aka "Conventional Pistol" now I guess...)
Centerfire: It is a tie between my stock MKIII Browning Hi Power, and my CZ-75 pre-B.
Centerfire: My .38 Special Giles M1911. Absolutely the most accurate semi-auto handgun I've ever fired. I won my class in the centerfire stages of 2700s that I never would have won if I'd had to use my .45.
The most accurate handgun I've fired is a 4" S&W model 19 made in 1980. It is just a perfect gun.
That is simply stunning JM.
Many years ago I spent a fair bit of time testing ammunition for top quality target pistols with a Ransom rest. These pistols were for UIT International competition and all were chambered for the .32 S&W Long full wadcutter round. Most of these pistols, Walther, Pardini, Hammerli, FAS, Benelli, Morini etc. were exceptionally accurate when matched with the right ammunition. As these were straight blowback actions the trick was to find the minimum load that was both accurate and reliable. Many of the pistols would produce groups like the one in JM's photo but our test range was only 25 yards, not the 50 yards shown there.
Here's a target I'm proud of - Shot with one hand standing, iron sights at 20 yards on the scaled 50 metre Olympic free pistol target. Pistol was a Browning Match 150. (.22lr)
Remember when you could buy a Pardini GT for $800? I was so stupid not buying one back then.
