Default CZ 75B vs 75 Compact Question

I've been thinking about getting my father a CZ 75 for fathers day. He's kinda small so I was wondering if I should get him the fullsize or compact. Other than the slide and barrel lengths how does the frame size compare? I know the compact holds 2 less rounds, but how much smaller is the grip itself?

Wish I had a daughter like you...the grip diameter on the CZ75B and Compact are pretty much the same. The diameter can be tuned, as it were, by the thickness and type of grips installed.

Just to throw something else into your considerations, there is a CZ75 SemiCompact out there lurking in the weeds. It is a parts-bin concoction of the full-size frame and the compact slide. The auction sites (AuctionArms.com/GunBroker.com/GunsAmerica.com) may have one or two listed from time to time.

I have large to extra large hands and the CZ 75 Compact fits me just right. The mag well is for double stack mags so it is not for small hand people.
In 9mm it is a real gentle handgun to fire, for me.
Mine is in satin nickel finish and has run perfectly fron the first.

I dunno. My hands are relatively small, and my daughters have no problem with the Compact.

What do you believe he would use it for? That could ultimately drive your decision more.

My young kids can shoot my 75B, so that should be no problem for a grown man.
