It's just you, bro.

Yeah Bruce,  It's just you.   Not even close.

I just have Piettas.  Two versions of the Remington handle - slim and fat and two versions of the Navy grip - tail and no tail.  If each were some how attached to identical guns and you hefted them blindfolded, the differences in feel would be plain as day, no question.

Yep it's just you. They don't even feel close to the same.
