    Steel frame 9mm

    I was given the opportunity to shoot a Baby Desert Eagle last week at the range by another shooter. He loaded a 10 round magazine and allowed my wife and I to shoot it. She shot 4 and I shot 6. It shot very well, was comfortable and had minimal recoil. I also was able to put 4 rounds in the same 1" hole at 7 yards so I think the accuracy would be better with some practice. I was wondering if there are some steel frame full size 9's that I could look for to add to my safe. Any information will be greatly appreciated.

    There are a lot of full-size, steel frame guns from the first wave or two of the "wondernines," dating from the late 70s to the mid-90s. Examples include the 2nd & 3rd generation Smith & Wesson autos, like the 5906, and the Ruger P85 and P95. Lots of these to be found on the used-gun shelves.

    Can't beat a Hi-power IMO. We have a MKIII thats just passed the 15K round count mark and it's better today than it was at 1000 rounds. Feels like it's just broken in. Tight slide fit, accuracy is top notch, and it's easy to work with. In my hands it's a natural pointer. I'm always dead on the weird front sights, one handed or two handed.

    We have a .40 cal in the stable also, but it's unfired at this point. They are discontinued in .40 so it's going to stay tucked away in the safe.

    CZ 75 Pre-B, CZ 75B and CZ 75 SP-01. CZ makes some sweet steel-framed guns.

    All of the suggestions so far have been good. Don't want to leave out the Sig's - P226 to be precise.

    I believe that most Sig P226s are aluminum frame. The one I own certainly is. But Sig does make an all steel version of the P226 called the X5. It weighs in over 40 ounces, is used primarily for target shooting, and is quite expensive. It is shown in the photo below:

    I'd opt for either the Browning Hi Power, or the CZ75.
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

    I'd like a 1911 style 9mm. I've always wanted a Para 18-9-- 40 ounces of steel, 18 rounds of 9mm? It would feel like a .22.

    I fall in love with these all the time at gun shows, esp. the S&Ws. Never get to shoot them tho.

    Would love one but dont need it, just like I dont need a 1911 *sigh*

    I really liked the Para Ordnance....but it's been awhile...was it steel or plastic? Have you seen that one?

    Another vote for the CZ 75B with a 1911 on 9mm being a strong second choice!
