I prefer all steel construction It must have a light rail Night sights are preferred Normal capacity should be in the high teens Controls should operate similar to the 1911's Cost should be in the $500-$700 range Accessories and/or parts should be fairly easy to order Way back in the mid-90's, I fired a friends 3rd Gen Smith and Wesson 9mm, and I wasn't really crazy about it. In the summer of 2011, I test-fired a number of 9mm pistols. I wasn't really crazy about the Glocks. They worked fine, they just felt... meh. I hated the reverse safety operation of the Berettas. After sweeping down with the thumb for so long, it just felt wrong to me to have to sweep forward and up. I got my best groups (singles, doubles, and Mozambiques) of the afternoon with the CZ 75 Compact. If it had a light rail and night sights, I'd be on it like anything. Does anyone know if the SP-01 has the same trigger group and frame shape? If so, I'll have to look around and see what I can find... Anyway, all suggestions are welcome and thanks, everybody!
