What Is Your Most Accurate Semi-Auto Pistol ...

... with you behind the controls?

As we all know, to test the pistol's inherent accuracy it needs to go on the Ransom rest to eliminate the human factor. However in the real world, when we toss out the rests and sandbags, add the human factor to the equation including : sight picture, grip, trigger pull, our comfort & confidence level with the pistol (the way it "feels" in our hands) and of course our individual skill level, what is your most accurate (Center Fire) Semi-auto pistol in that 7 to 10 yard range?

For me it is my CZ 75b

This gun I've owned since 1968 and this is it second barrel . I shot out the orginal one in over 60,000 rounds . In my day I could hold 80% of my shots in the "X" ring at 25 yds one handed off hand . I shot this a little over a year ago at age 67 . I have a muzzle break for it and I killed a lot of running rabbits with it .

You guys put me to shame. I go around the cylinder of a 5 shot and by the 5th things the sights are getting a little fuzzy for me.

In rimfires it has to be a toss up between a Ruger Hunter SS (atually the wifes) and my MKI, but that is "in hand" not from a bench and I have a lot of experience with the Standard auto design which my give the MKI and advantage.

I centerfires that is a very, very, difficult question. Currently it has to be called a 4 way tie. With their favorite loads (factory) my CZ 75 fullsize, the 75 compact, Magnum research IWI/Jericho 941/baby desert eagle (or whatever it's called this week) and my Sigpro 2022 all are capable of giving each other a run for top spot. I recently acquired a Springfield Armory XDM .45 but I have only had one brand of ball ammo, from my bulk stock, to test it out with. If it "likes" any other brand just a smidge better then I have a 5 way tie on my hands.

There are a couple of "human factors" thatput the two CZs so close together.

Tx, Countrygun & BlackHawk ... Unfortunately I forgot to put in the phrase "Center fire" in my original post which was my intention . My MKIII512 (with over 60,000) is by far my most accurate semi-auto. I'm curious which of your center fire pistols would be the most accurate?

Hello Buck. I would have to say I went with you on this, it's my CZ 75 compact bi-tone. I also have the Sig SP2022, but the CZ is better for me.

All my centerfire bottom feeder I load to fly over 1000 fps with hollow points for CCW and not for accuracy , since most gun fights are under 15 yds and no need to aim . If I had to pick one my Glock 27 at 25 yds is a good belly gun . This is the only paper targets I ever shot with this gun . All my CCW and cowboys gun I shoot steel .

Scoped Ruger Mark III Hunter, 10 shots from a rest at 50 feet. Orange dot is 7/8" diameter. Actually sold it because it was, well, boringly accurate. I do prefer single action revolvers, such as my Single Ten. Not quite as accurate, but no slouch in the accuracy department, either and, for me, a lot more fun to shoot.

That is great shootin'. My 22/45 is one of my most accurate pistols I have. Well if you don't count the Mare's Leg.

North Country Gal, I understand. I can't shoot at that level but I enjoy the revolvers as well. I have autos and like them but the revolvers are sweet and fun and give me pleasure just from the quality of fit and finish. I love my Mod 17 and my Mod 25 S&Ws.

Sorry, Buck, must of seen your original post. Don't currently have a centerfire semi-auto, anyway. This is a group I did shoot, last year, at 25 yards from the bench while sighting in a Remington R1E. I later replaced it with a Springfield Range Officer, which has proven to be even more accurate, though I don't have pics for it. Traded both, recently, though, for a beautiful Kimber mountain rifle, which I hope to use, someday, up in the high country. Semi autos just aren't my thing.

That's a real beauty NCG! I'm on the hunt for a 1911, but haven't decided on a brand or model yet. I probably will go with a smaller model for cc.

You weren't the first one to post about a rimfire and I bet you won't be the last. It's not exactly the crime of the century. I wish I could shoot half as good as you do.

The original poster did not say "centerfire" in the original post, it was added after several comments had been posted about rimfires. Some people just won't read before jumping in with complaints.

As far as some people can't read, check the subject of the OP's post, "What Is Your Most Accurate Semi-Auto Pistol ...... with you behind the controls?" and then tell us what your long winded post and rude comment have to do with the topic. So, how about it, where is your most accurate semi-auto pistol? You do have a semi-auto pistol, right? Let's see it.

"People just CAN'T read". Practice what you preach or go troll somewhere, else.

That's rude and unnecessary. We have a good group of people who get along very well. What is your problem? You don't need to jump in with both feet and start trying to convince everyone that you are some kind of expert on every subject posted. If you are going to stick around please try to be civil and respectful.
And to stay on topic my most accurate semi auto is my Ruger SR9c.
