I knew the slide was 1/2 inch shorter . Since the barrel is 1" shorter than the 92's,and it only comes only comes out of the 92 slide 1/2 inch, so the slide is also 1/2 shorter on the 917 with a flush fit barrel. I saw the pair at GunsNAmmo but didn't wanna ask to put one on top of the other :)

Yeah, while in my local gun shop, the one guy there pulled out that 917, and boy did it fit my hand, I also tried the comparable Ruger. Of the two, for fit and aim (if I had more money, the 917 would have a new home.) But as I needed something small and light, (even though the empty 917 did not feel much heavier than my PT111 loaded), Yep, that sure seems like if I go for a larger semi auto to be more my style than a 1911.
