The best 9mm ever built is the Glock 19. Not the best looking, though.

Those S&Ws sure are nice!

The G19 is my favorite Glock, but that's all I'll say about it.

That's about like saying it's your favorite shovel isn't it?

It might be a good tool, but it can replaced by another one just like it, and you'd never know the difference. (running and ducking for cover.)

As always Bac. Nice gun. Great photographs. Always good to check your threads.

The S&W 52,952 and 41 are all in my top ten list.
I like auto loaders and S&W has made some very fine examples.
They look good too.

Here's one of my 9mm favorites that will give a 952 a run for it's money in both the "best" and "most accurate" department...

Sig 210-5 with the standard and extended 9mm barrels and a .30 Luger barrel.

Very nice. I've got a few P210s.

They are certainly as nice as the 952 is in every way.

There is a certain attraction the 952 holds. Is the version with the large stuff on the slide from the same era as the third generation tacticals? It seemed like someone at S&W really liked billboard style slides. It seems to me that the recently the Performance Center has really stopped producing a bunch of pistols. But I would guess that eventually there will be at least a small run of 952s again. Maybe about the time when whoever did them is getting ready to retire and they want to train a younger guy.

And at the risk of totally hijacking the thread http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/91...49925438_zpid/

It's in PA it has an indoor range

Bruce, the 952 was introduced in 2002, I believe. The model without the grip safety wasn't built long.

The 41s are sweet, I'd like to get one too. The 945s are super nice too, kinda odd as they are 1911'ish, but not 1911s. This little lightweight 3.75" is a little jewel of a carry gun that thinks it is a bullseye pistol.

ps the rollmark looks similar to the no dash 952 don't you think?

Here's my all time favorite, my new carry gun too. I am a convert and affirmed Sig fan for sure. Fits like an old glove made for me.

I don't think that this is one of the best 9mms ever built. While being a well designed and accurate gun, it does not fit into the class of top target guns.

It definitely is not a SIG: it is a SIG Sauer. Worlds apart but only about 650 miles or so.

I have to agree on the 952, but.... try a Smith 52 wadcutter gun, you will find these are TWO of the best Smith's ever.

I actually like the 52 better than the 952. Something about shooting 50 yards and hearing the slow moving wadcutter hit the target after the pop! LOL

Yep, My dad was into bllseye when he was younger. A Colt Gold Cup, either his Smith 14 or the 52, and a 41 or High St Military.

A friend had a Clark converted 38 wadcutter Colt 1911. If you can find one, they are fun too.

I digress LOL. Your 952 is a beauty, enjoy!

Thanks

The 52 is every bit as accurate and well built as the 952. It's just not nearly as practical.

I would put it up against any handgun at any price in terms of accuracy and overall build quality. Its really that good.

Some day, some day. I have to say, the current incarnation of S&W has completely lost my interest, while my interest in S&W 3rd Gen, PC and revolvers continues to grow.

I love Performance Center Smith auto and classic Smith revolvers. I'm not big on Performance Center revolvers.

I think they're mostly ugly and certainly no better quality than the classic older models. The lock turns me off even more. No thanks.

I always love it when someone says something is "best" without adding qualifications.

I find the Luger 08 prettier.
I think BAC you have some other 9mms that should shoot just as good, of not better.
I would not like to take this S&W on a abuse test. I have a feeling the good old glock (ugly and not that accurate) may win that test.

To each his own I guess.....

Thank god we are all different or this would be a boring forum.

Wow, come on man.

First off, I said "one of the best", not THE best.

Also, I already explained in which way I felt it was one of the best. I'm talking build quality, fit and finish, and accuracy. I own Glocks and plenty of other polymers, but abuse tests mean absolutely nothing to me. I'm just not that "tacticool", I guess. I'm old school and, for me, the 952 will always be one of the best 9mms (or pistols of any caliber, for that matter) on the planet. Period.

Have you ever shot one?
