So. 9mm lovers, here is one to drool over:-
https://www.gunbroker.com/item/842471286

According to the listing this is currently owned by a Bullseye shooter in Colorado - and he even shows a decent target.

"Up for auction is a rare S&W Model 952 9mm 6 inch long slide with Performance Center case and papers AND unused still in package KN Nill wood grips! This is a safe queen but it shoots like a dream. Take a look at the target I shot yesterday. 25 rounds of cheap 115 gr. blazer ammo on an NRA B-8 bullseye target at 25 yards with two hand-hold. 23 out of 25 rounds are in the 10 ring and all 25 rounds are in the black. Using Federal 115 BPLE hollow points, this gun will group much tighter. I bought this to use in Bullseye competition but ended up staying with my Sig P-210 for centerfire. This gun has a very low round count since I didn't end up using for Bullseye (precision pistol) competition. This comes with Wilson base plate that convert the magazine to 10 rounds (total of 11 if one is chambered). I converted one magazine to 10 rounds for bullseye shooting practice. I still have the original magazine parts. I also purchased KN Nill wood grips for this beautiful gun but I never got the chance to install and I liked the factory wood grips. These don't come up for sale often. It has extra recoil spring, 2 magazines, instruction manual and locking Performance Center aluminum case. Don't wait for this one."


I have No Financial Interest - and it is too rich for me!


I'm guessing that this is very similar to the one showed off by Len V here:-

And where Zane suggests that these rare guns are >$2k. Well, this one on GB certainly is!!

Yeah I saw that one last night on GB. I'd say 6" versions were pretty rare, I guess I could look it up in my S&W book to see what they estimate value but my gut tells me the $4k starting price is about $1k to much especially for one that's been shot. Why is it all the fun pistols cost an arm and a leg Sad

TMBK 952-2 6" in such condition is rather $1K / 1", although sometimes owners don't know its real value, i.e. one recently was sold with BIN $2,700.00. I will not be surprised if this gun will be sold for over $6,000.00. 952s with 5" barrels also command ~$2,500 for good specimen. This is as close as it gets to P210-5LS Heavy Frame.

Currently much more modestly priced. Sadly it is a double stack otherwise I'd be on it!

Precursor to Model 59 is Model 39, and it is single stock.

FYI those un-opened grips won't fit on the 952-2. That's probably why they are still new. Also magazines for these are still in current production. Same magazine as the model 39. Mine shoots better then that. Very Happy Also N.F.I.

Here are the 3 generations   39, 52, 952

My experience with two P.C. 9mm's versus a Kidd Beretta and custom 1911 in 9mm is the P.C. pistols didn't come close. money is far better spent buying a custom 1911 or Kidd Beretta. Much better fit and on target performance and my two PPC9's were less than half this asking price.

Just another fYI. When I give up shooting/die my 952 will be put on the block. I hope a Bullseye shooter gets it. They will not be getting a safe queen. I've had long rails, medium rails and a short rail on it. The top of the rail looks like its been used as a drill press block. Well, not quite that bad. I should let Will or Roddy make it look new again. I never buy something planning on not using it..
