IMHO, Any 9mm Glock. 17, 19, 26, 34 they are accurate reliable and practically indesructible.
A friend of mine said his Sig had developed pitting on the slide after daily carry use. Are the newer ones still having those problems?
Military torture tests gave us the M9
The OP mentioned that reliability was the sole criterion. Not power.
Yep, I just care about reliability for the purposes of this thread.
Mr. Trooper, that's the one I was referring to.
I am sad to say my Glock 34 is not up to the task. The most reliable autoloader I own is a H&K P2000 which I gave to my sister!! She moved to a crime ridden neighborhood living by herself so I gave up my best gun for her. It was my most reliable gun. Never had a faliure of any kind. My Glock has had multipule FTF's. All my 1911's have been 100% with factory ammo but the capacity was the only reason why she has the H&K.
Check out the HK forum to see some incredible torture tests on a HK P2000 and a HK45. Seeing is believing.
SIG. Just... Sig.
The tests military include (most of them) is a hit by another bullet (from I don't know what diatanceand what caliber), and I sure know any polymer pistol won't stand a chance.
I'm not saying polymer handguns are "not" good, just that they don't fit "military requirements".
A P226 or P229 is a perfect choice, period.
"While the commoners like me own G17's, I can get virtually any part to improve that platform and install it myself."
It's a Sig.... you just buy it and it's "Perfection" right out of the box you don't have to "improve the platform".
Glock 17, Glock 19 or a Sig 228-229 there are others that I would be comfortable with but these are the top picks. ---Bill
Based on reputation I'd say the glock 17, although I haven't owned one so I'm not speaking from experience.
My M&P 9mm seems to be really reliable. I trust it fully.
beretta 92 any of them carried one of the compacts for quite a few years never a problem of any kind, when I had to give it back since we went to sig's i missed it so I got a 92FS INOX for personnel use just can't make it fail.
A truly mil-spec 1911. It's been tried and tested on more than a few battlefields.
