there has been a lot of talk about the grip size and weight of this handgun while it is a heavy gun it is also made of high quality steel in both the frame and slide so it does weigh more than any of my other semi-autos short of my DE.50. This being said the weight is well balanced even with 10 rounds in the magazine. as far as grip size goes i would have to say it fits my hand well altho i have medium to large hands. i typically wear size 2XL gloves and could prolly get away with wearing 3XL in some cases. however in the following sets i have compaired the CZ97BD to several of my other semi autos a SigP220, My Springfield 1911-A1 and my SigP226.
First up the Springfield:
As you can see the width is very close or slighlty favors the CZ altho i have a set of pachmyer rubber grips on my 1911.
the 1911 however is smaller by a small bit in grip lenght but not by much
Next is the SigP220:
While i like the Sig P220 a lot it is just not as comfortable to hold as the 1911 or CZ97BD. i also replaced the factory grips which i really didnt like with a set of pachmyers. the pachmyer grips are identical in shape and size to the factory sig grips they are just more comfortable in cold or hot weather giving a positive grip. the SigP220 grip is slightly larger than the CZ97BD width wise.
the sigP220 is slighlty shorter in grip length and this difference is what make makes the gun feel a little funky to me.
