As far as my Rossi it was smoother DA than the Colt that I still have possibly because of the six holes in the Colt cylinder. If you enjoy your Hi Points that's great but I hated shooting them, women usually can't pull the slide back and if the right grip panel gets loose they won't fire.
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.
