Many people don't really care if a handgun is balanced. I own a Glock myself. I use it for what it was designed to do. It is a rough and tumble combat accurate handgun. But the G19 feels like it has a double recoil to me. If you add a thicker, heavier barrel to an already top heavy gun it is not going to improve the situation.

If the lock up on a Colt sounds the same as a Rossi to you I would strongly suggest you see an audiologist. When I pull the hammer back on a colt all I hear is a click. When I pull the hammer back on a Rossi I hear springs stretching, parts moving, everything except the gun locking up. If the hand is out of time on a Colt I would know it before I ever fired the gun. If a Rossi is damaged I cannot pull the hammer back and hear it. If you can live with that it is your money.

I am sorry but there is no way a Rossi is smoother than a Colt. Rossis are rougher than hell. They may work but that is about all that they do.IMHO they are one step above a pot metal Saturday nite special.

I know little about Rossi in general, I had a very nice little pump .22 and the Rossi by Taurus came from the better half. The guns I had were not pot metal or rough as hell. That said I have gone completely name brand as far as handguns for the reasons I posted earlier. I own Colts from the 80's and 90's and they were nothing to brag about as sold new. I took a nasty plastic trigger out of a 1991A1, and the metal pill in my Delta wasn't much better. Both had plastic mainspring housings and the Delta needed a custom link to lock up properly. It also needed a recoil reducing guide rod and variable Wolff spring. Did I mention that both guide rods were also plastic? The Dick special I picked up is probably from the early 80s and it's nice enough but it is abrupt in DA fire. We compared it to the Rossi 952 and a Taurus 85 and think it's just the extra round in the cylinder that really isn't much larger than the five shots in the other guns. Good luck with your Hi Points, like I posted earlier you guys must get different guns than I do.
