Nice! That's how a fighting man's 1911A1 is supposed to look. Not all Gucci'd out.

Actually I dislike modern 1911s with wedge sights and beavertails, and will soon be down to just one. I'm not a competition shooter, and have found that in those rare cases when I want to carry a 1911 one of my mil-spec ones will do the job just fine.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

So you donít have any problem getting the web of your right hand chewed up with the old set up?

Nope. But then again I don't try to grip the frame ridiculously high as per the fashion these days.

I have recently seen that model TISAS on sale for $339. I have also read that they are as good or better, than the GI version of the NORINCO 1911 - that I've regretted selling - even though I did it to up grade to a Ruger SR-1911. The Ruger is wonderful, but I miss owning a military 1911. I'd definitely buy that Tisas model (if I could) - after having a very good experience with my Tisas BR-9S Hi Power clone. Maybe next year.

I've never had hammer bite, but I have a manual labor job which workout my hands. Maybe the muscle bed in the web of my thumbs keeps skin out of the way, or I'm related to JMB and inherited he hands.
