While I’m glad to not have to worry about shaving a .1 oz here and .1 oz there anymore in Prod or CO divisions, I see a point of diminishing returns when it comes to pistol weights.  Most of my 1911 and 2011s, which are my other go-to guns when not shooting CZs, are in the 42-44 oz range and is what I’ve probably shot the most of in competition, and in .40 and .45acp calibers to boot.

Maybe I’d have to try a 9mm 59 oz gun to see what it feels like.  I’m sure the weight soaks up the recoil more, probably shoots really flat, but I can see transitions being slower.  When I went from a 5” 2011 to a 6” 2011 in Limited div it took me a while to adjust to the extra length and increased muzzle weight.  I had great splits and accuracy, but my transitions were slower.

I've owned revolvers and huge semautos in the 54-74oz range before.

Eventually the weight gets to be enough that keeping the gun steady is something you actually need to actively work on, vs just happening naturally with a tight grip.

They would look much better with a different grip texture. Pretty cool though

is there a good way to clean brass grips? will they lose sharpness if I put them in wet tumbler?
