Very Interesting and very nice!  8)  I like the grip and general ergonomics of the Steyr's.  :)

Cyanide, which of the pistols above are your top three and why?
Geez, you would put me on the spot wouldn't you? Lol. As of right now and, in no particular order (though subject to change soon with the acquisition of my Beretta 8000 D).

CZ P-01
Steyr C9-A1
CZ P-07


I will save my reasons for another thread, as I don't want this one getting sidetracked by any possible debating and arguing between any of us. Want to keep this one on track as a side by side picture comparison.

I appreciate that, and I am looking forward to that thread. I am happy you picked the three I was hoping for.

Steyr disassembly, though doing it one-handed takes practice, as the take down lever is backed by a pretty stiff spring!


Grand Power P1 Mk7 disassembly:


CZ disassembly (P-07 shown). Punch is not needed to push out slide stop/takedown pin. Corner of magazine base plate works perfectly:

Cyanide, I am still waiting why the Steyr is highly regarded by you. I like the looks of it.

Whenever I get back home I'll do a few more with new additions/comparisons including the RAMI, SR9C, S9-A1, and P99C

My apologies for the graininess on these, but I zoomed in on a couple of old, in-hand shots of the Steyr & PPQ.




Comparison of my grip on a Steyr M9 (identical on newer models), Gen 3 Glock 19 (my preference is Gen 4 models), and CZ P-07. The red lines are there simply to demonstrate hand position, by showing my trigger finger knuckle location, as well as the 'wrap-around dimple" where the webbing of my hand actually starts it's wrap around the backstrap. I've never personally suffered "Slide Bite" on a Glock, but I can see where the concern is for some.
