which 9mm for steel plate match shoots ?

Discussion in 'General Firearms Forum' started by cajun_chooter, Jan 18, 2013.

  1. I am starting to shop for a 9mm steel plate match pistol.. to reduce my search time.. i thought i would ask which pistol (brand & model) shooters prefer.. if you know the approximate price that would help also..

  2. I really like my M&P9L. It's a wonderful shooter and 100% reliable.

    I'm kind of fond of the one in my avatar, I use it to shoot action pistol matches.

    not sure if you're talking just glocks or not... sti makes a gun specifically for steel shooting called the Steel Master ($~3k). I have one and really like it, best of all it is seriously designed to just use Winchester White Box 9mm 115g fmj, like sold (but of course, now out of stock) at walmart.

    if you're just talking glock, can't go wrong with the g34. i have warren/sevigny wide rear notch and front fiber optics on mine - quick target acquisition.

    Glock 34 or a CZ-75 is what's I'd want, both ~$600.

    I wouldn't go for plastic for a match gun. You don't need to save weight, in fact I would want weight for something like that. Maybe one of the CZs or, my choice would actually be a Jericho/941 with an action job. But a CZ 75 SA would be great. Look at the EAA line too.

    I just use a Glock 17, but any gun you can shoot fast and accurately will be good.

    There's also divisions for rimfires and revolvers too.

    They have divisions for everything, just like USPSA. Pick a gun you like and run with it...

    Glock 19. I see very little value in competing (read: training) with a pistol that is not your regular carry.

    Won't really matter if you're doing a steel challenge match, but if you ever move on to other things like USPSA, you'll want to go in the production category. I'd say G17, G24 or an XDM 5.25.

    I'd go for the XD(m) 5.25 9mm. Haven't had the pleasure of shooting one but have fondled them in the gun shop (looked at one in .40 the other day and drooled some) and they are sweet! Nice crisp trigger, decent balance, and the fiber optic front sight with plain black rear is an awesome sight combo. You are just drawn right into the front sight! I can't imagine one not being able to go up againt a G34. Would also probably be an awesome HD gun.
