    I was just loaned a 52-2 from a close friend to do a review and what fun it was.

    After a very long hiatus from making semi-auto pistols of nearly 20 years Smith and Wesson hit a home run with the introduction of the Model 39. It has only been a dream of mine to spend a day on the range with a S&W Model 39. Having such a burning desire for such a long time this dream seems to be turning more into a nightmare than one filled with the pleasures of a 80 degree sunny day on the range. Though I will probably never get to fulfill this dream, I hold out hope and have got very close to scratching this itch due to some great friendships. Enter the Model 52-2 Wadcutter Only Target Pistol.

    the model 52 is a pretty cool purpose built pistol. kinda neat to see the little circles of paper float to the ground.

    Thanks for the review. I've been after one of their target 9s for a long time.

    Pretty darn impressive!

    To pick up 38 brass off the ground would seem strange, but worth it in a piece like that.
