Staying Simple With 1911's
Anybody else here just prefer the "old style" 1911's to what some companies offer nowadays? It may just be myself, but much of the additions seem to be just added cost....ambi safety's, forward cocking serrations, what have you. I can understand the Beavertails with some folks who have larger hands. I happen to have pretty small hands, so it's never been an issue for me.
For this reason I went with a stock SA GI 1911. I've always loved John Browning's design and it's long history is its own testament. The only things I have done to this particular pistol, were to install an 18# recoil spring, (I ony shoot 230gr anyway), changed out the grips to a pair of my liking, and have 3-Dot hi vis sights where the low pros used to be. I've had this shooter since late Sept. and love it more each time I shoot it. It handles everything from Gold Dots to CCI Blazer with ease and the only problems I've experienced with it were with Rem. UMC Green Box FMJ's. I just think the gun DOES NOT like these rounds, with FTF and FTE's.
Are there any more out there who just prefer a more "Simple" platform for their daily carry?
