A quick check of GB shows 33 model 59s available vs. 3 model CS9s.

59s are great pistols but CS9s were built in much smaller quantities and are coveted for their concealability.

Are you looking for a carry gun? If so, the CS9.

It will be easier to find a 59 later, if owning them both is the long-term goal.
If you want a range pistol- 59
CCW pistol- CS9

CS9's are not in plentiful supply and do make for good carry weapons. Plenty of 59's still floating around.

Buy both. Shoot both. Decide later which to keep.

I agree with the others on the CS9.

I concur, the message is authentic. The CS9s are becoming harder to come across and if you are looking for CCW, you can't go wrong. I just picked one up this past weekend, and am itching to get it out to the range.

Had a 59 way back. Found the grip a bit too wide and later sold it. Bought a CS-9 back in 99 and never looked back. Ideal for my purpose.
