If you think the full size is good, you really need to get yourself an X-Change kit and give the compact a whirl. It is exactly the same size a G19. It is IMHO a superior firearm to the G19 in many ways. The only thing I wanted to upgrade on the Compact was the sights, as mine came with contrast sights, which are excellent, but I refer night sights and decided to go with the Sig X-Ray3 sights, as they are very similar to Trijicon HD's. They will be getting installed later today, hopefully. As you can see in this picture the tritium is very bright and even shows up in a well lit room.
