I started out on a 1911 as that's all there was at the time except for the BHP. I have always felt better with a thumb safety and as said above, it doesn't take any longer to present the pistol....

@KAS300
Good Day,
How long ago did you break the two sights, I wonder if it was faulty MIM work?

ndchf,
Sounds good, since you already have it running this may be redundant, but one place that seems to be neglected is the breech face, where the base of the case must slide into place. I have...

I think Ruger went to metal sights on the SR 1911 CMD in recognition of the problem.

I have the plain sighted one and put on a Para Ordinance slide for the better sights. Greg Cote has the double stack magazines as does RIA I believe.

There have been stories about people dropping their modified HP magazines and having the rounds get all jumbled up. I'd sure test the notion out before carrying said magazines for self defense....

Good Day,
Some of the double stacks had feeding problems reported on various boards. I had a single stack 9mm/ .22 TCM that ran great; though, I never used the .22 TCM. At the time, I wasn't sure...

1911 .45 or 9mm LW Commander plus spare magazine. Sometimes an LC9s plus a spare magazine. My trigger finger prefers the 1911.

Doesn't matter if it's staged, the take away here is that you must create distance between the attacker and yourself in order to present your weapon safely. Being too close could get you shot with...

I had a . 22 TCM/ 9mm combo that shot very well with the 9mm barrel. I didn't feel that the .22 TCM was ready for prime time and never tried it so I traded in to a Ruger LW Commander in 9mm. The...

I can partially answer the question, I bought a well used 1911 - A2 in .45 ACP. (Double stack) It runs well. The slide lock was stopping the action prematurely and a dimple in the slide stop for the...

The barrel looks like it was stuck in a .45 cal. slide. I wonder how old the piece is and whether RIA struggled to get something to market in that time frame.

Check for a burr around the firing pin hole on the slide. Sometimes that will stop the case from sliding up under the extractor. HTH
