    I never responded with the results of shooting with the medium grip panel. This response has been a long time coming since I first posted on the grip change, and after such time I found the medium grip perfect for my hand using this gun. There is not going back, as it is as close to perfect as it gets! Any bullseyes missed, or other shots off the mark are on me, not the grip!!!

    I have round 1200 rounds through my CZ P-10 C with the small grip installed as it came from CZ. Yesterday I moved to the medium grip, ready for shooting this weekend. It feels good in the hand, but, and there always is a but in life, that doesn't mean much in a static state. Only after putting rounds downrange, quickly, slowly, both hands and on target will the feeling part of shooting it becomes positive feedback to decide on keeping or dumping it. As an inveterate old-school shooter, I trust nothing to chance or the opine of others; I find my way to the best of the best for me.

    There is no way to recommend a grip size, as it would be tantamount to telling another what size shoes to wear. Although it would be interesting to know which size grip is the most popular in the group of owners of the CZ P-10 C, although again, some will not even try other grip panels, and some are so new they don't know the difference as long as it shoots well, and that is all good as well.

    I will report back on how the grip performed, excellent or not so much!

    I have the small insert on our shared P10, due to my wife using it as her primary pistol. The first few outings, I was all over the place and immediately chalked it up to the grip being too small for me. Yesterday I went to the range and shot both the P10 and my P01 (shoot that one well), after paying very close attention to my trigger finger and how it was reacting, I was able to at least equal my results with the P01, if anything I do prefer the std sights on the P10. I think it’s really a mind over matter issue for me, I proved to myself that I was able to get rounds to go where I wanted despite that niggling “grip is too small” excuse in the back of my mind. Having said that, one of these days on another solo range trip, I will change it to one of the larger sizes and see if that does indeed make any difference. I must say that I’m very pleased to have shot P10 well, and am glad I didn’t give up on it in it’s current configuration.

    I don't know how experienced you are. It is better to have too small a grip than too large, that is what most shooters find I believe. I agree that IF it is your wife's primary, taking into account, her hands are smaller, a larger grip 'MAY" make it difficult for her, or maybe not. The grip panels are not necessarily larger overall but shaped different to adjust the finger length from the trigger the back of the grip I believe, that is how the medium grip feels to me. I shot over 1200 rounds with the small grip, and have not shot the medium yet, as my range time last weekend went to pot, as I had to deal with a medical situation at the range; some fell and injured themselves. Even though I am retired, once a first responder, always one, eh?
    The grip retaining pin is a pain where the sun doesn't shine. The size they told me at CZ 2/16 inch roll pin punch did not work, the punch went into the pin, and did not push it out. CZ, to be a good neighbor, should provide a tool they know does work with the gun, even if it costs an extra buck or two!
    Even with the small grip, it shot well, but I am long in the tooth at the game and I shoot any gun that comes to hand, even tini-wini ones, so I rolled along from 200 yards on in. I don't think that will be affected by this grip change to medium. I am looking for gun handling skills enhancement or attenuation of such, as that skill is what keeps you alive and well. If one has poor, thus slow and dangerous, gun handling skills, even the best target shooter will die with his or her gun that now must be pried from their cold, dead, fingers by the coroner!
    Good luck, keep your wife shooting well ... she just may save your butt one day with that gun!!!

    I finally got out to test shoot the new medium grip panel on my CZ P-10C today! I like it although I did not shoot my normal standards, but, and there always is a but in life, I had a bad shooting day, it was not the grip change. A little worn out this week, but a long enough session to find the grip pleasing to the feel so far. It is early to be completely confident in an improvement, but over time I will know.

    I shot a video shooting with the new grip, and I also used it to demonstrate a few points on School Shootings, a subject I have experience within many forms.

    I am also still testing/using my 17 round magazine without incident over all these rounds!!!

    Thanks for your reply, I have indeed decided to leave it small, I changed the insert to the medium and wife preferred the small, so it stays, and I’m absolutely fine with that.....she is starting to enjoy range days and that is good.

    It is easier for you to shoot a too small of a grip than she shoot a grip that is too big!
