Balance of steel from verses aluminum frame.

Not scientific but does show the difference in where the weight is distributed . Could this make you shoot high or low? I don't have a clue. Does it make the gun feel more balanced in your hand? I don't know. The test was with a classic carry pro(steel frame) and a Super Carry Pro (aluminum frame).

Can you weigh that Diet Coke cup from McDonalds so I can determine if it's empty or not....

Can you please devise a contraption to measure the front to rear weight distribution of both weapons? Needs to be done loaded and unloaded to account for weight of bullets.

Need to measure the recoil flip of each when fired.

I am looking for some duct tape and a old wire coat hanger and I should be able to answer your questions.
