Hey Kris. I have found that for the money the Target Master by STI is the best for the money. Its not gunsmith 1 inch group tight but its enough to be able to shoot a good score with it. It has good quality parts that all a gunsmith has to go is massage the trigger and slide to frame fit to get better accuracy. Oak Hill guns has the in stock for a good price. If you can find a used one or a used Springfield Distinguished gun that would be a good find too.

hey Kris, I agree with Moose. I have had my eye on a 6 inch Targetmaster for some time. Missed out big time a couple of weeks ago. What I would suggest is get the recoil spring changed also, all the better for shooting reduced power loads. I was thinking of a 6 pound recoil spring (I like finding cases)

cheers

the targetmaster is a good gun and as far as the recoil spring goes, the one that comes with the gun is a good one to use. Rob Leatham (TGO) has always said for accuracy pistols you want a strong spring to lock the gun up tight to go back into battery. The one time you will need a reduced spring is when your shooting lighter loads or shooting USPSA. hope this helps.

If you get the Targetmaster, some things you want to look for:
Front sight is narrower than the one used on the PPC-9 guns. .100 wide as opposed to .125 If you like a lot of light on both sides then good to go. Also watch out for the adjustment screws might be in metrics and not standard threads and pitch,(these are Aristocrats and supposed to be 1/16th allen set serews) so you will need a metric allen wrench. No real problem. Height may not be high enough for all neck shooting distances(25 yd and 50 yds)Dawson precision has been installing these for STI and their dovetail cut not same as the one Aristocrat uses on their sights "if" you want to make a change. I think these designed for the IDPA or IPSC shooters more than the PPC game, but I think will still be good for PPC with right load.
Metal form mags seem to work well. The Springfield style is the preferred one.
These guns to best of my knowlege has a 1:16 twist bbl and may not be real accurate with 115 grain bullets @ 50 yds. 124's and 147's prob way to go.
If you could get a 1:32 twist bbl would be the way to go my opinion.With light loads like shooting a BB gun.
Overall, well made and nice gun for the money.Just my opinion.
