    I prefer the balance of the steel version.

    I have a couple steel versions. really great shooters. light single action trigger and not bad double action as well. sa only isreali mil one i have is a sweet light trigger. quick clean break. really impressive on the steel versions I own.

    the weight of the steel frame makes it a pleasure to shoot. sure polymer is fine but takes its major advantage away in heavier weight as a range gun. as a carry gun they are clunky and bulky. make a glock seems slim and svlete in comparison in feel and looks wise.

    Always wanted a steel version. Never have seen one in person.

    Yup. The polymer is too top heavy for me. I had the steel version and sold it to my closest friends at the time I wanted to experiment. Jericho's are well made and the steel is like it came from the railroad tracks or some tank. The slide is so smooth compared to the Cz's. In the 90s when hybrid ports are a fad, my gunsmith refused to port my Jericho claiming that it is so hard on his machine. Lol.

    The only weakness I see on the older Jerichos was that of the finish. Nothing that hard chroming cannot fix.

    They both look good to me. The polymer one looks certainly better than the EAA Witness P...

    About 20 years ago I owned a polymer compact. Nice pistol, shot well.

    As others have mentioned, it was a little top heavy, but not enough to make it objectionable.

    The bigger problem was, at the time, there was NO accessory availability. It needed a custom holster, and there was nothing. That may have changed; check before you jump.

    ETA: Mags were also tough to come by; I would think this problem has disappeared given the maturity of the internet since then.
