I also like the extra weight. I've gotten used to the looks and don't even notice them now.

Nice pistols you have there.

However, any 1911 without rails can add a mount under the frame to allow using a light when needed....the attached Novak Tactical blued steel is one option.....It is a simple matter to drill and tap three holes in the frame to secure the three mounting screws......and it is removeable if ever desired....
That's the one I used on my .460 Rowland build. Rock solid. Oh yeah....but in case anyone wants to ignore what I say I also have 2 1911s in 9mm, sooo....
