Pistols by weight?
 
Does anyone know of a website that allows searching for pistols based on weight? I'm looking for a *heavier* 9mm semi-auto pistol with a good history of reliability.

I know one but not by pistol weight rather by recoil (which is close).

Try this.

Browning High Power or a steel framed CZ would have to be among the heaviest and both are well thought of. Also, the 3rd gen S&W pistols with steel frames. I had a Jericho 941 (CZ clone, also called Baby Desert Eagle) and it weighed so much it was like shooting a rimfire...

Beretta 92 and the Taurus PT92 are both heavy 9mms (about 2.5lbs, loaded). I had a PT92 that was perfectly reliable for over 1500 rounds.

^^^ This.

My next pistol will be a CZ 75 SP01...loved it after trying it in the range. :)

My CZ75b will be my GO TO for pistol whippins; that thing is SOLID. With a full magazine, you could probably knock a horse out with that thing. My dear departed Granny once knocked out a ne'er do well husband of one of my cousins with her purse and the enclosed gilt Bible; had she been packin a CZ75b rather than the heavy metal Bible, that man wouldn't have woke up.

It's darn accurate too.

A Smith and Wesson 5906 is heavy, reliable and accurate. Stainless steel frame and slide. They can be found as LE trade in guns. Carried a bunch and shot 50-100 rounds a year.

I think i saw one of those in the CDNN catalog for about $300.
CDNN Sports, Inc.
(If you look at the picture of their catalog, it is by the center seam, near the bottom.)

I agree. I bought one from CDNN for $299.99 w/ hogue grip...best bang for the buck if you don't mind buying used.

cz75, browning hi-power, or an older taurus PT99/92 if your looking for a real cheap used one. the older ones are steel framed steel slide no clue about the newer.

those are about the only ones i would recomend. the CZ75 in my opinion is the best 9mm bar none out there.
