Another performance area that I thought a chopped frame might hurt is split times or accuracy at speed due to increased muzzle flip. I already have an issue with visual patience when trying to shooting fast, and it seems logical that the chopped frame would give me less control over the gun at speed. To test this theory, I did a series of Bill Drills on a USPSA A-zone at 7 yards with the Gen4 G22 and then the chopped G22 for comparison on the timer.
As you can see from the timer, not much difference, the hits weren't any different either. Splits stayed in the low 0.20 range, and I dropped a 3-4 rounds over 5 runs each with both guns at that speed. That being said, it does look like there is more muzzle rise, I guess it just isn't significant enough to matter all that much.
Stay tuned for more updates.
