1-browning hi point looks like new not a mark on it 2 mags and case 695.00
2-smith and wesson model 411 shows wear on finish but looks great mechanically 1 mag 325.00
3-beretta mod 96 looks like new 1 mag 425.00
4-new beretta unshure of model but is stainless 695.00
5- sig with night sights i think it was a 22x? for 495.00
6- same sig as 5 but standard sights 465.00
i am looking for a good all metal 40 cal i carry a polymer gun but want a metal gun to target shoot and maybe carry when clothing and weather and what not permits but never on a regular basis?
One of my dealers said the S&W 411 has the best trigger the other dealer thinks the beretta is the best choice and a third said the browning hands down? all i know is i am buying a new to me gun in the next week if i can find what i like

I'd go with number 5 or number 6. Those guns last a long time and are a great value. Not to say the others are no good, just that Sigs are better IMO.
5, but only because you didn't list an XD
There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

You won't go wrong with either SIG.

I assume you are talking about a Browning "HI-Power", not "Hi-Point". If so the BHP is a S/A weapon and in my humble belief the best of the bunch, however at $695 it is over priced. Also you would want to practice a lot to become comfortable with a S/A, it's not for everyone. So with that said I would have to toss my vote to #5 too.....Good Luck, and Front sight!

ok guys i think you made my decision i will go in thursday and look over the 2 sigs anything to look for on a used sig?
I'll say #5. But-----#3 actually sounds like the better deal. IMO of course.
#3 is the best deal, #5 is the best overall value IMO.

I would say it depends on what your current carry gun is. I think it makes sense to stick with the same manual of arms if at all possible. Personally, I prefer to carry cocked and locked. Of those listed I would pick the Browning Hi-power. However, if you are used to carry with a DAK, LEM or a DA/SA you would probably want to go with one of the Sigs IMHO.

#5 or #6

well i carry a smith and wesson M&P 40c and have a M&P 40 fulsize also. it isnt really about cost i really want a nice all steel target gun that cold be carried once in a blue moon if the mood struck me. i really took a liking to the hi power but will most likely go relook at the sigs?
