I have never held a DSG before, I was practicing snap shooting with this one in my house trying to get used to the length and grip thinking, "wow, if this one is only 10" then the 14" one would feel HUGE!"
I think what makes it feel big to me is the distance between the pistol grip and the pump handle is bigger than anything else I have or have had. For reference: S6, S5, Nelspot, Phantoms, PGP, PMI1...The grip and pump are not uncomfortable, just different from what I am used to. I am sure I will get used to it in no time at all considering I haven't put the gun down since I got it on Friday! lol
