Guns & Ammo Annual Shootout

Guns & Ammo Annual Shootout
In 2015, Guns & Ammo embarked on a trial that pitted 10, single-stack 9mm pistols against each other following the introduction of the Glock 43. More than 8,000 rounds were fired with a minimum of 650 rounds through each. Once the benchmark was met, four pistols without a malfunction were fired without cleaning or maintenance beyond 1,000 rounds before a final accuracy test and trigger-pull average was measured. Only three pistols exceeded 1,000 rounds without a failure: the Glock 43, Taurus PT709 slim and Walther PPs.

For 2018, following the introduction of the popular SIG Sauer P365, we regrouped to do it again. This time we ordered eight, striker-fired, double-stack, compact 9mm pistols and 8,000 rounds of defensive and training ammunition from Federal Premium. You can read about the result of this test in our 2019 G&A Annual Magazine available on a Newsstand near you. See the video below where Jim Angel and Eric Poole talk about the test.
