Impulse buy, CS9

Hello all,
Went looking for a snub and ended up buying this S&W Chief Special 9mm with night sites. Probably paid too much at $375 otd.

Very nice. Looks in excellent condition. S&W autos are very over looked. Been thinking about getting one for a while. Enjoy.

I like the S&W 3rd generation. Here is a picture of my new CS9 and its big brother 910S. I am selling the 910S but having 2nd thoughts now.

Both are really nice Gen 3s you have there sir. A pair to draw to, as it were.

I too, would hesitate a bit before I sold off the 910 myself.

Will the 910 magazines work in the CS?

Baba Louie,

The CS9 has a single stock mag and the 910 is a full size with a double stock mag.

Viper99,

I did not know that.

Well then, sell the big beastie.

Still and all, cousins look good together in that photo.

Correct.

FWIW full-size and compact 39-series 7-9rd single-stack mags will work in the CS9, although they will project below the grip frame.

3rd generation Smiths are fine weapons and you certainly did not overpay.

Took it to the range yesterday and put 200 rounds through it. No problems and it shoots great. Only 1 mag...have to get more.
Very happy with it.

I just got a CS9 also, and have been charmed by it, not really being a Smith auto kinda guy.

It is a NICE little 9. Nice size, nice weight, great function.


Just ordered two mags for it from Midway -extortionate price, but you had better stock up now while they are available.
