I would check out the cz pistols, it's going to be my next, they just feel better than my glock. And dead on accurate.

The best .40 IMHO would be a glock 20 with a conversion barrel! That way when you wanna shoot a real round you got the 10mm, and use the .40 for plinking.

If you want an extremely accurate 40 for target and competition use, look at the sig p226 x five

I own, shoot, and love several service/duty type weapons myself and while they are all excellent firearms for what they were designed for, they are not competition type pistols other than service/stock type competitions. The op wanted recommendations for something accurate available in 40. In fact, i dont recall him listing any other criteria. Price not a factor was also stated in there somewhere. Well then, i stand by my suggestion.

I don't like 40sw. And in fact, I don't really like Glock. But both are fine...as is almost any 40sw that runs $300+ at your local gun store. It's all about what fits your hand, the trigger you'd like, safety preferences, the kind of weight and capacity you expect, etc.

I'd never buy a Beretta 92/96, but I love the CZ 75. I think Sigs alloys (P226/229/239) are outstanding. Not a big Glock fan, but I really like Springfield's XDm and S&W's M&P lines. It really all boils down to personal preference.

I'd go XDm or M&P for polymer, Sig or CZ if it's to be a metal-framed gun. But that's my preference, and you need to discover your own.

But I'll say this much: I've yet to find anyone who doesn't shoot my CZ 75b really well. It's a high quality service pistol that you can land for $500 or so, and available in 40sw (mine's a 9mm).

You might consider a Para Ordnance (now Para USA) model S16.40 or model 16.40 LDA. Like the name says, the capacity is 16+1, 5" barrel, full size. The S model is traditional single action, the LDA model is double action only, and has a very light trigger pull. Kinda pricey, but good guns. Very accurate.

How about sharing those numbers since you have them!
