Pistol similar in feel to G21's?

I have a G21 and G20, I want to try a metal framed pistol next, I always liked the look of stainless steel pistols with wood grips. Looking for something similar in size to the pistols I have. Figured I can kill two birds, I've been wanting to try something in a smaller caliber then what I have, except for the short and weak, its to close to what I own already. I'd like to stay under a thousand.

im sure you could hollow out enough of a 2x4 to fit most any steel auto inside it? the benefits of removable grips!

I kid I kid.

Best I could recommend is stick with the glock platform and build one on a steel lower? Most steel frames feel quite a bit different then glocks.
E-Shock rounds are engineered to expend maximum energy into soft targets, turning the density mass into an expanding rotational cone of NyTrilium matrix particles, causing neurological collapse to the central nervous system.- Yeah I can do that.

CZ 75 is a classic metal frame. Can get in stainless, and get wood grips for it. 9mm its best caliber. Beretta 92 another good choice.

Lol, Venom, I like the size of the weapon it fits well in my hand, could be better but its hard to complain about, neither blocks have let me down yet.

I was looking at some 92's, Sportsmans and Walmart only had the black, fred myers has the silver one in town. I was ogling it for a little bit, it is a nice gun. I have seen some 9mm 1911's that look really nice but I'd rather my first 1911 be a 45.

Maybe a large-frame Witness, from EAA? Based on the CZ75, it's large enough to chamber .45, .38 Super, and 10mm. I handled a .38 Super version, called something like Elite Match, it seemed like a very nice gun.

Yep, I have a G20SF 3gen, and a CZ75B with rubber Hogues. With the Hogues on the 75 to me feel close.

I had a 21sf. The CZ 97b has a similar front/back size but much better ergos.
