The author wasn't saying the bore axis height is measured from the trigger centerline, just that on older hammer-fired pistols it often was (coincidentally) the same as the trigger centerline. In engineering we call this offset a "moment," which then produces a torque, and the author picked the centerline of the beavertail for the measurement instead of the top off the hand. Semantics. Does offset matter? Sometimes. But put any one of the guns mentioned in the article in a really good shooters hands and none of it will matter. Like you said, comfort is irrelevant. I'm with you on that, if people just got out and shot, and shut-upped about all their ergonomic complaints and gun design "flaws" they'd realize it was the shooter and not the gun.Bore axis is height of the bores center plane, over the height of your hand. The bottom of the beaver tail. Not the center of the trigger. The lower, the better for recoil control.
Comfort? There is nothing comfortable about the best performance grips.
I've often found that the ''it doesn't feel good'' or ''it doesn't fit my hand'' is perfectly synonymous for: ''I'm too lazy to learn the proper way to grip this, I'd rather lose every match I attend.''
Not sure what a normal price range entails, but I don’t think they will ever be less than $3500-$4000, even without the extras.I'll wait until Dan Wesson, CZ, SVI, or someone copies it.
Or at least wait until the tooling is paid off so they can sell them at normal price ranges.
