Weird but based on my latest range trip my cheapest pistol, a S&W 5906 9mm (because I bought it used) seems to be the best overall. It has the best felt recoil, even better than my CZ 75 SP-01 Trigger pull is great (approximately 5.5 lb in SA mode, 9 lb in DA mode) Very accurate & consistent though shooting low with 115 grain Federal Champion. My only problem is the big grip due to the Hogue grips it now have. I know it is also what's making the recoil better and I cannot have it both. Trimmed, the hogue feel much better though. Other than that, it is so good, I am tempted to buy another!!!
