Hey Pax,

I wear a medium men's golf glove, and my wife's hands are significantly smaller than mine, so her hands are probably in that range you request. Out of all the guns she has ever fired, the Kahr P9 was her favorite. Fit was perfect, including the trigger reach. Recoil was mild, as she would routinely fire 100 rounds per range session. Slide pull was difficult for her (a consideration you should include), but managable. Accuracy was excellent. Unfortunately, she hates Moonies, so we eventually sold the gun.

The SIG 232 also fit her hands well. Slide pull was unmanagable. DA trigger pull was unmanagable. Recoil was severe. Accuracy was excellent. We didn't own the gun.

RIA 1911 GM. Fit good with short trigger. Trigger pull excellent. Slide pull moderate and very managable. Weight was heavy. Recoil with WWB 230gr ball was moderate. Accuracy was good.

Walther (Manuhrin) PP 32acp. Excellent fit. Excellent weight. DA trigger pull impossible. slide pull moderate and managable. Recoil with 73gr Sellier & Bellot was mild. Accuracy was very good.

Ruger Blackhawk, 45 Colt 4.5" barrel. Good fit. Weight heavy. Trigger pull excellent. Recoil with Winchester cowboy loads was above moderate. Accuracy was okay.

On her CCW, she has 3 revolvers and 3 P32s.

Ruger SP101 357 w/ hogue grips. Excellent fit. Weighs a bit much, but managable. DA trigger heavy but managable. Only shoots 38 special. Recoil with 124gr Speer GD +P Severe. Recoil with standard pressure 158gr LSWCHP moderate. Recoil with Federal 110gr PD mild. Accuracy was good.

Taurus 85 38sp w/ wood Excaliber boot grip. Good Fit (grip a little small) Weight good. DA trigger good. Recoil with 124gr Speer GD +P Severe. Recoil with standard pressure 158gr LSWCHP severe. Recoil with Federal 110gr PD Moderate. Accuracy was good.

Taurus 85o 38sp w/ wood Excaliber full grip. Excellent fit. Weight good. Trigger good plus. Recoil with 124gr Speer GD +P very Severe. Recoil with standard pressure 158gr LSWCHP above moderate. Recoil with Federal 110gr PD above mild. Accuracy was good.

P32. Good fit (grip a little small). Weight a little light. Slide effort moderate and very managable. Trigger heavy but managable. Recoil with 73gr Sellier & Bellot moderate. Accuracy was excellent.

Hope this helps.
