In what manner and/or way, do “they absolutely did not live up to the hype.”
Have you shot a lot of different handguns so as to have a good frame of reference from which to judge?
Neither one felt good in my hand, with the 1911 being retarded heavy. The grip on the BHP was really weird, almost too small. I also didn't like how they handled recoil. No disrespect for either, I just didn't like them at all.
I own Glocks, CZ's, and a Kahr and I've shot most mainstream polymers, exception being Steyr and Caracal.
