Differences between the P94 and P95!

I've never had the two side by side. I have fired the P94 but have only held the P95. Anyone wish to share their opinions. I am getting ready to buy a 9mm and I am looking at several new and used included the P94, P95 and the SR9. I know the differences in the SR9 vs. the P95 but wonder if a used P94 is the same as the P95, better or worse. Any and all opinions are appreciated.

Thanks!

The obvious difference is the P-94 has an alloy frame and the P-95 has a polymer one, thus is a bit lighter. The P-Series has been around for a good while, the SR-9 has experience some teething problems (no big surprise). If the P-94 is cheaper than the P-95, then that means a little extra $ for practice ammo!

I have an old P94 in 40 S&W before they called them 944's and it has been very accurate (definitely ammo sensitive for accuracy) and 100% reliable in the 14 years I have owned it. It isn't something I carry but as a home defense or vehicle pistol it is excellent.

Is the P94 a 9mm or 40 S&W? The .40 is really a P944, but the slide says P94. (Go figure) I've had both, as well as a newer style P95. They are all great guns. As mentioned earlier, the P95 has a polymer frame and is lighter. It is also a little less bulky - the safety levers on the new style P95 are flatter, making the gun narrower. These might be factors if you plan to carry it concealed. The P94s in 9mm are pretty hard to come by these days and usually cost more than they did new. If you don't mind the extra bulk and can get a good price, I'd probably spring for the P94.
