    Most guns are capable of much greater accuracy than the shooter. For me, the single biggest factor is a good trigger. With that being said, the most "accurate" 9mm I have shot (to date) is my Walther PPQ. Makes it seem easy.

    Might not be most accurate but my choice was a S&W 952.

    I agree. At my club, my CZ 75 TS gets pitted against many, many other 9mm's and it comes out on top every time.

    My most accurate 9mm is my CZ 75 SA. If I were to get another I would opt for a custom Shadow or Sport tactical.

    Since bac owns them all, and has tested them all, it is highly likely that this is the correct answer.

    The most accurate I have been has been with a CZP01.

    my most "accurate" pistol out of the box is a HK P7M8. I think the light trigger and fixed barrel lend to its nature. I'm not the expert pistol shot by any means, but the H&K makes me feel better whenever I shoot it.

    I'm fond of the CZ SP01 Shadow.

    I would like to try a Tactical Sport in 9MM but, I really don't have a need for one.

    Of the poly pistols the Walther PPQ is the most accurate I've shot.

    Probably a Blackhawk Convertible. But I don't think that's what OP had in mind.

    Les Baer 1911's are known for extreme accuracy in a pistol.
    1.5" guarantee at 50 yards.
    But they are not cheap.

    Lots of good stuff out there. For me, in terms of what I shoot best I keep coming back to the Sig X5 or X6. I still love the 210s though.

    I'd have to disagree here.

    Even with 10x more experience behind a G34, I can hit smaller targets farther away with my Tripp tuned STI - both in competition and just goobing around. Same nut behind the gun.

    As far as the most accurate pistol out of the box, maybe a HK SP5k, or SIG MPX?

    Or maybe a Les Baer? Wilson?

    I know some action pistol shooters who say they are faster with a G34, but more accurate with a [quality] 1911. My experience is very similar.

    YMMV.

    For a small'ish gun, it seems easier to hit small targets than many other "target/competition" guns.

    CDNN had the P7's for a very reasonable price a few years ago. I didn't know anything about them at the time, I regret not buying one now.

    Sig 210 , the classic one, not the new cheap one . It's one of the very very best.

    Had one. The claim of 1-1/2" groups at 50 yards is true.And that is for ten shots. I tested mine in a Ransome rest with several different types of ammo,including my own hand loads and it spoke the truth.I paid about $1500 for it then,don't know what they would cost today.

    For a general production gun, the CZs that have been mentioned are tough to beat. A 1911 built by some of the better semi custom shops would be another option.

    Have to disagree, a polymer type duty pistol has no where near the accuracy as some of those mentioned in this thread, nor should they as that is not their purpose.

    Yeah. The TS is a specialty pistol for me. I only use it in Steel matches.
