Default Looking for an "all metal " Compact 9MM?

Stopped by Tanner's today & was pleasantly surprised to see the new Stoeger (Beretta) Cougar compact in the showcase. Ergonomics were excellent which is typical of Beretta (fit my hand very nicely). Comes with two Beretta made 13 rd mags. Fit & finish is also typical Beretta excellence. Being all metal it's not Polymer lite by any means but with it's compact size I see no problem using as a carry weapon. With Cougar proven reliability, accuracy, high quality workmanship & a NIB price of $369 Stoeger has another fantastic value handgun.

Check out the CZ75 compact and the 2075 RAMI, they are very good quality pistols.

Don't know if I would consider it a true compact since they only shortened the grip from holding 15 to 13. Would agree it is one nice bargain in a metal pistols.

Bersa 9uc would be another smaller all metal option.

Compact is a very subjective word.
I consider a Sig P239 a compact, but some would say it's too big.
The other choice wold be to look at a Kahr MK9.

Take a look at the third generation Smith and Wesson automatics. Models like the 6906, 6903, 3915, 3953 and the like are plentiful on the used market and are top notch firearms. Sure, they no longer make them but they have everything the "modern" designs have today even though they were built 20 years ago.

If you want ultra premium, look for the Smith and Wesson Performance Center Shorty 9 also called the PC9. It is a hand built (by skilled craftsmen of the Performance Center) 12 shot compact 9mm with dovetailed sights (night sights easily bought) that will outshoot most of us. Here is a link to one on gunbroker:

Hmm, do want.

I'd settle for a CS9 though.
