    The smoothest I've ever felt was a Wilson Classic Supergrade, but I didn't own it. Smoothest I've owned is my Sig 226

    Beretta 92 Steel 1. The slide operates like it's on ball bearings...

    a hi-power my uncle had shot a bunch for years and it was well greased.

    I think that a well cleaned weapon should be pretty smooth. All mine feel great when I move the slide.

    Hmmmm, of those I own it's a toss up between a SIG 229 (.40 S&W) and my full sized Witness 10mm.

    By now pretty much all of my auto-loaders run fairly smooth though. <grin>

    Beretta 92FS. My SIG P226 is smooth, but the Beretta feels positively buttery.

    My Beretta 90-two. The 92 series Berettas I've held seem to be a lot smoother than any other pistol I have handled.

    Beretta Px4 storm. I think the rotating barrel design might have a little to do with it.

    I'll say of the 20 or so semi-autos that I own, and of the 50 others that I've probably owned in my lifetime, the Beretta 92FS.
