    So I'm the market for the smoothest, most accurate 9mm auto money can buy. Budget up to $2500. I was almost dead set on a Sig 210 or the 210 Legend, was wondering if any forum members have other suggestions? I'm all ears.

    STI has some really slick 1911 9mm's but If i had 2500 and needed to spend it on a 9 it would be the p210 legend the new one with a beavertail, american style mag release and target sights makes me drool

    Very nice gun.

    I thought about the USP Elite, but I already have a P30 in 9mm which afaik is a refinement of the USP/P2000.

    I'd go the P210 route for certain. Slick and beautiful guns!

    LOL I'll post pics of the Swiss Miss, probably not the targets since I'm a sucktastic handgun shot.

    Yeah it's gonna be the P210, they are works of art, unless someone convinces me otherwise.

    Ted Yost (Heirloom Precision) HiPower. Probably have to get a used one for $2500 though.

    Smoothest and most accurate will only happen if you do your part, range time and maintenance. that said get a fnp or a sig and shoot the heck out of it.

    You can spend all you want... but you'll never get any better than perfect.

    A 17L with a trigger job does wonders at 100 yards...

    Thanks for the suggestions. I should have clarified that I wanted something that is also pretty and is just pure shooting pleasure, which to me means nice lines and a very crisp SA only trigger, so no Glock/Sig. This is not a practical gun, I already have my Glock 17 and HK P30 for that.

    I'll probably take a hard look at customized BHP's before making a decision then.

    Only if you want a slide that acts like it's rolling on ball bearings and a trigger that breaks like a small glass rod :D

    My suggestion also....Also be sure to buy 3 magazines with it to send along so that they can be "tuned" along with the gun.

    Get the p210. Just picked one up last week. Wasn't looking for anything in particular but after picking it up and fingering it. It had to come home with me. Absolute art. I have a Couple hundred rounds threw it now and it's simply amazing. I have the target version with the adjustable sights too. Makes quick work out of all those 12ga hulls in a line at 10 and 15 yards.

    I am still trying to get use to the trigger as it feels like a two stage with the first stage being about 90% of the total weight. Total weight being extremely light. No guage but breaks lighter then my Wilson which is 3.5lbs.
