not sure if it's maybe in my head but the recoil seems a bit snappy for 9mm maybe it was the reloads
will try it with some high zoot ammo and Winchester white box come wed afternoon
The 908 was the "value" edition of the S&W 3913, which was often mentioned in older posts as the best cc pistol at the time.
I have a 3913 and everyone who's ever fired it, has loved it. If the recoil seems a bit harsh, it may be that the metal frame is not flexing like the polymer framed pistols do. I've put Hogue soft grips on mine, and it's very "comfy" shooting; I'm sure the same grips will fit the 908.
Only differences between the 3913 and the 908 are plastic sights on the 908, and a couple of other minor plastic parts, and the general fit & finish isn't as good on the 908.
Modern polymer guns are lighter, but those 3rd generation S&W pistols are classics, that just keep on going.
