Yeah, those really took the polymer world by storm. My only gripe with those are the trigger, but in the muzzle flip department they are one of the best. I think the main reasons for it are because of the amazingly ergonomic grip, and low bore axis.

For me, the most controllable is a tie between the SIG P226 (US M-11) and the Beretta. (US M-9)

I really like the Browning as well, but it's only offered in single action.

I think when I stated in my last post

"the 92s also seem more controllable" , yep. That's

my FINAL ANSWER, Regis.

I'd be willing to bet that an EAA Witness (Steel, large frame) in 9 mm would be quite the softy. It's pretty mild in .45 Also full sized steel 1911s in 9 mm are pretty mild..
Polymer? Not sure, but I would imagine that the XDm 5.25 would be a contender.

Without a doubt the CZ 75 SP-01 is the lightest recoiling 9mm. 19 rounds very fast and controlled....and there is no grip like it on any other pistol

Big fan of the Steyr m9. controlable recoil. More straight back than muzzle flip. I also have a high power clone, Arcus 98DA. Tack driver, crazy tight groups. The most accurate 9mm ever has to be the H&K P7 psp. It was our duty weapon for 3 years. Can't beat a fixed barrel handgun for accuracy. It was gas operated and the spring was huge, it wrapped around the barrel, hence absorbing and controling a lot of the recoil.

Have vote for the 1911-
My steel full sized 1911 9er is about the mildest 9mm i've ever fired

Not having shot every 9mm out There I can only go with experience. My well worn Sig 226 was a very soft shooter.
