My 357 is my "pretty" gun, and I might get a pretty 1911.
My workhorses are the G26, XD9, and RIA 1911 Tactical.
Pretty grips on the 1911, but I actually dumped the ambi safety in favor of the smaller Colt GI safety. I also dumped the FLGR and went to a GI GR and plug. The new Springfield RO is basically what I built.
I like the short guide rod because of I'm disabled, I can rack the slide on the edge of a table... can't do that with a full length.
I don't need the ambi safety, and it's just another snag point.
I DO like the beavertail... I don't like hammer bite
XD9 went through the "mall ninja" evolution, but it's back to stock now except for the grip tape.
The G26 has an extended slide release and extended takedown pin, but other than that, just the Trijicon sights.
show ur friends ur lights, lasers, and shiny guns................show the bad guys your ugly one.
Plus 10,000... especially since if you have to fire, it's going to be locked up in an evidence locker for anywhere from a few weeks to a couple of years and when you get it back it is not going to look like it did when you handed it to the cop.
