The only downsides to them is they have poor balance (IMO) and they're kinda blocky at the grip. The Springfields are nice as well. I personally stay away from anything S&W anymore by principle, but that's just me. I know its not one of the guns you mentioned and also a bit pricier, but have you looked at any of the Sigs? The P227 is perhaps the most well balanced handgun I've ever picked up. Good luck in your search!
He wants a 9mm. The 22 is a full size 40 and the 23 is a compact 40. A subcompact glock 9mm would be the 26 and the compact version (prolly the most versatile size) would be the glock 19.
