    The CZ75B is an excellent choice. The steel frame soaks up alot more recoil than any of my polymer guns.

    The CZ75B is also known for being extremely accurate and isn't too far up there in price. Plenty of people have started using them in competitions and enjoy them.

    After a few hundred rounds the trigger will smooth out nicely and I've yet to clear a malfunction from my CZ75 after several thousand rounds. Very reliable, low recoil, and are only around $500 or so.

    I've read quite a bit about subtle changes in the grip design (shape) of the newer CZ models, but have yet to feel or experience the changes, myself -- even though I've tried. Maybe I'm just "insensitive". <semi-grin>

    It seemed to me, that the lowest part of the beavertail (closest to the trigger, where the root of the hand's grip strikes the frame) is what limits a higher grip, and that part of the grip seemed the same on all the various models. I thought that the newer design just EXTENDED the beavertail back farther, with a flip up on the end. Perhaps there's more to it than that. (I don't have both styles in the gun safe at the moment, so I can't do a detailed comparison. When I last looked/compared, I didn't see a difference -- but psychology is tricky: you often see what you expect to see. For those with beefy hands, I can see how that extension and changed shape would reduce the possibility of hammer bite.

    If the different beavertail allows you a higher grip, I can understand why you'd like it.

    I do believe that the fundamental CZ design itself DOES have a lower bore axis (i.e., the barrel sits lower in the hand and is a less "top-heavy" design) than many other guns,. The "physics" are different.

    Whatever the science behind it, I think that most can agree that the CZ75B doesn't have much recoil.

    My Beretta 92FS has much less recoil than my Glock 17.

    Walt, I may not grip just right; but my strong hand "locks" against the beavertail to the point of having a major callous where it makes contact on the inside of the thumb knuckle adjacent to the web of my hand.. I have small hands and a short trigger finger, and the CZ 75 is a stretch..

    I really can't say about the amount of affect due the beavertail because of the added front end weight having a lot of affect too. I do know it affects(improves) my grip just a little.
