    Most comfortable grip 9mm

    I'd like to hear opinions about which 9mm make and model has the most ergonomic, comfortable grip and why. Right now, my vote would be for the Walther P99. How about you?

    For me it's a toss up between a 9mm 1911, an FNP, or a 226 Sig Sauer.

    I would have to agree with Johnson. The 1911 platform is the most comfortable gun I have ever wrapped my hands around.

    Outside of that my vote would have to go for either the H&K P30 or the S&W M&P.

    The grip on my P229 fits my hand like a glove. My past XDs were pretty good, but not the same as the Sig. I had a Taurus PT92 way back that was very bulky, and looking back, I didn't like very much.

    Another vote for the 1911. For me, running a very close 2nd is the CZ.

    None of the above recommendations come from the factory with palm swell (with the exception of the tekhead). For me, any CZ with palm swell (75 and SP/P variants), and the P30 in a close second. They'd be tied if the P30 had a metal frame.

    Out of the few 9mm's that I've handled, the CZ P-01 gets my vote. It rests in my hand most comfortably and LT hit the nail on the head in regards to the palm swell which is just the right amount and makes for a well proportioned grasp.

    While I'm a big fan of both the 1911 and 1935 designs, from my knothole there is no question that a BHP wearing Spegel grips is the most ergonomically friendly of all. This even with 1911s using custom grips.

    9mm

    I have Browning Hi-Power with Pachmayr grips. Very comfortable.

    Although I LOVE my XD, M&P has to be the most ergonomic. Every time I pick one up, it feels like it was meant to be there. And they shoot awesome! ....why don't I have one?!!

    Go grab yourself a handfull of Taurus 24/7 OSS Tactical 9mm. I know there are Taurus doubters out there, but it feels great in your hand and shoots sweet! I've run various ammo through it and it has yet to fail to feed or eject.
    Give it a try.

    I did handle a Taurus 24/7 and while it was OK, I still did not think it was nearly as comfortable in my hand as the P99. The grip felt "fat" but then, I have smaller hands.

    In my hand the CZ 75 Compact or CZ P-01 are far and away the best feeling handgun I have ever held right out of the box. They feel like a natural extension of my hand. Great contour of the grip, excellent trigger finger placement with my hands. Next up would be a full size CZ 75 followed by a single stack 1911 and the Browning Hi-Power. I have yet to find a polymer grip gun that feels good in my hand - it maybe just what I am used to having grown up with 1911's and Hi Powers.

    Well before everybody starts laughing, I am serious..I love the CZ 75 and SIG P226 grips, but lately I purchased a used SIG P6 which has a single stack magazine, and that grip is just the perfect fit for my hands.

    But does it have to have a palm swell to be a good fitting weapon? The way a set of 1911's grips are shaped lend themselves well to the hand. Same though for most factory Sig Grips. I had Hogue's on my P226 that had that swell and I removed them in favor of a wood set that for me feel much better. Not to take away from the CZ I just don't see the swell is being a selling point for many people.

    +1 on a BHP though. I like the feel of those pretty much no matter her grip panel.

    Well certainly I can't speak for everyone, but for me there was a HUGE difference once I found a weapon with palm swell. I only wish all weapons had this option.

    Of course YMMV but if the OP is asking about comfort and does not know what palm swell is, it is absolutely worth investigating.
