9 mm semi automatic pistols

In Europe, the 9 mm semi automatic pistol has been a prominent feature in police, military and private shooters and collectors for a very long time.

So living in Switzerland I have naturally acquired a few over the years, and since all the range are closed I thought I’ll post a few pics here

Beretta 92 F - 1986





Beretta 92 FS - 1993





Beretta 92 Combat - 2001





Colt GM Mark IV series 70 - 1979





CZ 75 - 1986

Wow, I didn't know Beretta made a version with a proper safety.

Beautiful collection!

Nice collection. Was that CZ75 refinished? It's quite shiny.

Yep, and it’s a single action too, light trigger pull, very accurate pistol.

No, it’s almost new, but the famous CZ paint will flake with use and abuse

That’s quite a collection of P210’s and some really good shooting out of the Glock.

I would happily trade you my Luger for the 1949 P210..................
I have most of the others, excluding the Berettas, but those 210s really get me going!

Those are gorgeous. I have versions of most of those, but many of mine are clones, and most of them have finish wear. Yours look pristine.

Nice set of quality pistols, thanks for posting.
I like the tree stump too, it is a cool backdrop.
