    Any ideas on how to make this a better carry?

    I have a S&W 1911PD. I have already changed out the Main Spring Housing because it was squared up and would tear the flesh off your hand after about 200 rd. It has tridium night sights. I would love any other ideas to make this a better EDC weapon. I don't want to make it too modified for obvious reasons.

    Only thing I can think of is a good light and a 870 or Mossberg topped off for the house. Best of luck.

    I'd keep it as is, unless there is a problem somewhere.

    I second the 'keep it as it is'...just shoot the 'stuff' out of it...

    Hummm... ya know, I think it needs a Streamlight TLR-2 for when it's relaxing at home!

    I would say wrap in some sweet leather... but that may not be what you are looking for.

    I'd say it needs a nice custom leather suit. If it works and handles well, leave it be and just feed it plenty of ammo!
