Hadn't shot my G22 since I bought my G23C a couple months ago so I took both out for a spin at the range. I have to say the 23C does have much better recoil management than the 22. I didn't think it would be so noticeable. So much so that I don't know if I have a reason to shoot the 22 anymore. I also realized that my trijicon night sights on the 22 are off a bit shooting left. The compensated 23 has spoiled me now. It made the G22 a bit unenjoyable to shoot in comparison . I was using Remington 180g ammo. I might even think about selling the 22 and getting a G17 or 19.
