For my gf.



Been looking for compact 9mm for her for some time now, and it came down to S&W 3913(Pre TSW), Taurus PT111 Millennium Pro, and Springfield XD9. there were few others i looked at, like J frame, Beretta 84FS Cheetah Nickel plated model, and Ruger KP95PR15 as well.

She didn't like J frame(Well, she don't care for revolver in general), Beretta was 380auto(i truely believe for SD, 9para is minimum - but she did love the nickel finish tho), and KP95 was too big, and ugry( Gents, when girl is buying a gun, how it looks in her purse DOES matter :roll: ).



We voted PT111 out due to lack of decocker, and its mushy trigger. decocker is not must have, but we figured its nice added feature specially when she sticks it in her pourse. I hear great thing about Taurus, but the trigger was just garbage in my opinion. did love the small size however.

XD9 was little on bigger then others. I personally likes them. Infact i think I'll buy one in 45acp sometime in future.

So we got 3913. Its not LS version, and its pre TSW(tapered dust cover. not one with rail). And interestingly enough, both Eric(Gunstore owner) and I felt that they are perhaps some of the ugriest gun ever made, yet my GF thought its the nicest looking gun that fits her hand good enough that she can pull DA trigger.

But I read many article swears that they are some of the best compact 9mm DA/SA auto ever made. So we'll see. I'm hoping to pick it up this sat after i get paid.

You might be able to get a different mag base. The one you see is for the double stack version and they came with the gun. :wink:

Well, i was gonn await few weeks to payit off, but could not resist. got paid, so i picked it up!

I cleaned it up, and played with it with dummy round in it, and i can't help but to think how good this ugry little gun really is! Almost perfect balanced, easy to carry. only thing i could ask for is may be little more then 8rds. But single stack is what makes this gun so easy to carry. can't wait to take it out to shoot!

It's a really nice little gun, I really loved it. I traded it for my m&p when I got it. I had a set of houges on it and it really fit me well, the only thing about it was that it was a single stack, hence it had to go. Have fun with it, mine never failed to go bang...5000 times of bang in a short time. Not to be nosy, but how much did you have to give for your little gem. I gave about 360 for mine with a box shot through it.

mine was $339 in box with 3 mags.

One of mag has curved bottom plate, and others are just flat one. I'd like to get just curved plate from S&W, and I sent 2 message out to ask about it, and never got anything back from them...



Being single stack 8rds - While certainly a disadvantage compared to M&P's 17rds, it makes it so nice to conceal it. Even tho I got it for my GF, and she does shoot it when we go out to the range, i've found myself slipping this little baby in my back pocket over M&P more and more these days...

I too have a 3953, the DAO variant of the 3913.



Great gun. I bought it in 1991 as my first CCW gun.
