I recently discovered that earlier this year, S&W stopped making the 952. That's a crime, in my opinion, because I feel its the best auto in their current lineup and could quite possibly be the best pistol they ever produced. I'm assuming they weren't selling enough to justify the cost of production, which I'm sure wasn't cheap. Actually, the 945 is done as well, but that makes sense to me, because its so similar to the Performance Center 1911s they build. All that's being built in the Performance Center now are 1911s and revolvers. The 952 may just be my second favorite 9mm, after the Browning Hi-Power. What a damn shame. I know these pistols cost near $2K, but they were easily worth it. Here's my blued 952-1, but I want one of the stainless longslide models at some point. I guess Gunbroker is where I need to look now.
