Gun Report

Smith & Wesson 3953, 5946 9mms

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

We'd pass on this pair. We found it difficult to spend time shooting the 3953 and then picking up the 5946 and producing acceptable results. Also, each of these guns were tiring to shoot. We attribute this to the weight of their trigger pulls.

A traditional three-dot arrangement adorns both guns' sights. This was clean and fast to acquire, we thought.
