It's been a little while since I hit the gun range, so off I went -with two stainless Smith and Wesson handguns. The 3913 is one of the very best of the third generation Smith autos, an alloy framed TDA 9mm single stack. Barrel is about 3.25", weight is just under 25oz and it's an eight shooter plus one in the chamber. Novak low mount sights. The K frame .38sp is the NY1 version of the model 64, meaning bobbed hammer and DAO trigger per NYPD's specification. Fixed sights, heavy barrel and six shots. Very smooth trigger and damned if it isn't about 10lbs. Ammo was the usual bullseye approved Black Hills wadcutter in the revolver, Ultramax 115gr jhp's in the 3913...Bullets looked like xtps. Shooting was two handed offhand at local bullseye range, distance was 25yards. Despite being smaller and lighter with a shorter barrel, the 3913 managed to keep 50 into just over 6". No issues with function, this gun lives up to the reputation of ' feeding anything ' associated with 3rd generation S&W pistols. Sight radius was nearly identical to the 4" 64's. I used the decocker every five shots, tugged a couple under the black, holding dead center....That's about where it shoots. The NY1 did about it's usual...Which is what I consider amazing for a retired police six shooter, and I did it relatively easily with a steady pace just over the range mandated ' no faster than 1 every 2 sec'. The bunny fart wadcutters help of course with minimal muzzle lift, but the gun acts like it was a PPC ace in a previous life....The front sight just drops right back into the notch just as you're finish staging the next pull, kerchunk. 50 into just over 5", double action. I love shooting this gun. No jams on this one either.
