If he's a collector...I say look at the SIG P210

You have never lived until you have almost died. For those that have fought for it, life has a special flavor the protected will never know
SIG 226 or 229. Rail, non-polymer, SA/DA, 9mm, under 1000 bucks (barely, if you get an Elite), just tough to beat all around.
Actually,the Sigs aren't too bad I have a 2022 and a 229 both in 40 but can be found in 9mm,theres a lot of people lean towards the Sig 220 45acp,One big deal is how much hand strength does he have,would he have problem racking a slide,or operating any thumb safety?
I would also suggest looking at the M&P series,they have a picatinny rail on the front

I guess I am a whole lot of Mums kind of Guy.
Gen 1 G17, Gen 3 G23, Gen 4 G26, 870P, MkIII 678, 10/22 Carbine
I would get a Sig P229 myself.
I'm in agreement with the CZ recommendation. I like sig too but a CZ 75 compact would run about 500, leaving room for a NICE laser or combo. Also, the 75 just sings to me.

There are Mums guns, Dom guns, and Cristal guns. I think I have some in each category. I don't discriminate. They all get the job done and have their place.
Insert Natty Light/Pabst, Budweiseir, or Newcastle if you prefer the hops and barley metaphor.
Metal but not 1911 has to be new with rail=Sig
Have Fun and Shoot Straight !!
Went to the local dealer today to see what they had. Looked hard at the Sig 229, but then held a HK P30. He fell in love with it. It gripped well and had a very nice balance. Walked out the door with it.
