I'm surprised too. Lots of people like the Cheetah. I didn't like the difficulty of detail stripping it and lack of aftermarket parts. Then with its size ratios it's not that great for carry. But those are just my thoughts.

I still wonder why Beretta will not make a 9mm in the Cheeta size, with all these sub compacts I think they could do it.

They do it's called the Beretta 9000 series.

Wahoo, it's polymer and the Cheeta is not.

I'm with ya FJ. The Cheeta is a good little packin size, and seems like it would be a good fit. Always liked the looks.

Sorry this isn't going to be much gang, but got bored earlier and took several pictures of my new P93 DAO next to my CZ 100. In the upcoming days, provided I can get back through the house, I will pick up another couple of my new additions and post pics of them, and hopefully next to the P-07 (it's taking a break from EDC so that the 100 gets a turn).







Then a couple separate shots of how narrow the P93's grip is when compared to the upper thickness, which for me and my small hands translates into a very comfortable pistol to hold and shoot, especially with it having all of the weight pretty much in the slide on top of that light alloy frame (unlike a classic Sig P-series or Beretta 92 = fat grips).





More later!

More please.  :D

Edit: The rear sight set screw of the P93 is offset. Is there a design reason for this that you are aware of?

Thanks gang, glad y'all enjoy it!

Tok36, I honestly have no idea why Ruger did that, but IIRC, the three P95's I previously owned were the same. Must just be the way that Ruger designed them.

Interesting, i was thinking that maybe they hid something under the sight like on the M&P Pistols.

Sorry these won't be the best of pictures gang, but now that I have all of them together, say hello to the newest four members of my family (including the aforementioned P93 DAO)!

Some of you may recognize them, some might not since three of them have been discontinued for a number of years. Clockwise from the top, left to right:
Browning BDM, S&W 5943 SSV, Ruger P93 DAO, S&W SD9VE.



I only had enough time to swing through the house for picking these up, and won't be able to get to the range to run some rounds through them until week after next, since next weekend when I get home I will be immediately picking up my son and going out of town for a few days doing stuff for his 17th birthday.

A quick, yet very rough shot of them side-by-side in order of the CZ 100, BDM, 5943, P93, and SD9VE, and then other comparison shots will be with my CZ 100 as the benchmark since one, it's still my #1 EDC, and two, it's almost identical in dimensions to my, okay, our beloved P-07 and the world renowned Glock 19.



























I will say this, the Browning BDM grip is freaking tiny for a double stack 9mm (even though mine only has the 10 rd mags, regular capacity was 15).

I'm also going to pick up a straight backstrap grip panel for the 5943, just to make it a tiny bit more comfortable. And then, night sights will be ordered and installed on all that have the option available.

More later!

Nice bunch of newer handguns! 8)  Congratulations and may they serve you well!   :)

I have your SD9VE's direct ancestor, the SW9VE, albeit with a slight Trigger Job removing that horrible pigtail Spring.
Quite recently, I installed a green Fiber Optic Front Sight.  I carry it often.

The 5943 is a hoot to shoot with that pre-cocked DAO. Definitely feels better for me with a straight backstrap.

JWC, thanks as always! The trigger pull on mine doesn't feel really all that bad compared to the original, older models. Dare I say I actually like it, because it reminds me of a true double action trigger.

Can't wait Psyop! I swear I must've dry fired it alone at least 200x yesterday lol. Yeah, I myself am definitely digging on this trigger; it reminds me of my CZC DAO-converted P-07 with how smooth it is, just with a shorter trigger pull, obviously no second-strike capability, and it feels just a little heavier in the pull weight. It also feels really good in my hand as well, right up there with my CZ 100 and P-07, just with a slightly more hand filling grip.
