    Most robust 9mm single stack?

    What is the toughest most durable 9mm single stack pistol on the market? I'm talking take it to the range, shoot the snot out of it, run it over with a humvee, leave it out in the elements without worrying about rust type of pistol. What is the toughest single stack 9mm out there?

    I don't think any pistol or most guns for that matter are going to meet your requirements,If you leave a gun out in the elements without taking appropriate cleaning and daily lubing you will eventually have a seized rusted up piece of junk.

    I would have to say the most robust single stack 9mm is the Glock 9 that is only available in LaLa Land, that holds 7+1 but you can use the extended magazine that holds 9+1 for range use. I joke....I joke !!! God Bless

    S&W 3913 or 3953, but they deserve better than what you have described.

    Take your pick of firearm, then give Robar Firearm Finishes a call. I'm sure they'll be able to give you iron-clad information and advice about the realistic possibilities.

    Either way, if you want the performance to be as durable as the material of the gun, you'll need to consider periodic cleaning and lubrication. No real way around that, presuming you take "durability" to include operation and function.

    Lacking such a finish (on every single metal surface exposed to air, grit, lube), I'd say the Glock 17 or 19 would do you well, given that it has much less steel available to the elements that's capable of rusting as compared to most handguns and a reputation for durability that would be the envy of any firearms maker.

    Even so, no finish is going to protect all aspects of a gun (and certainly not forever). As well, no finish obviates the need for lubrication.

    I think the S&W M&P Shield will probably be the closest match to those unrealistic (and, hopefully sarcastic) expectations.

    My choice would be a sig p225/p6 or Hk p7. Have owned and loved both. Would never treat one the way described in the op, however.

    The Sig P239 is a tank of a single-stack 9mm. It would get my vote.

    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    The tools that I might have to depend upon to save my life never get treated like you describe so I have no suggestions for you.

    If you do conduct these types of tests on your own guns, please share your results with us.

    I don't own one, but if the HK single stacks like the P7 are anything like the USP (which I do own), you could probably shoot and run it over with a truck for the rest of your life and still hand it down to your kids in working order
