Full Size

I carry a Govt 1911 when I carry full size.

Almost all of my guns are A1, Short trigger, arched mainspring housing. Works the best for me.

I am a flat MSH and long trigger fan myself. With better sights I would be happy with a WWI repo.

As would I. I have a 1914 commercial frame with a 1956-1969 slide. Better sights are the only thing I'm considering.

Been using the A1 configuration for many years, until I bought a SA Loaded with the flat MSH/long trigger setup in 2000. I now prefer the flat MSH/long trigger over the A1 configuration.

I swear, there is no slide rollmark on Earth sexier than what Colt used on their old 1950-1970 pre-70 pistols. They could bring back that marking on their current Series 70 repros and sell a ton of them.

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.

I've always preferred an A1 full size. When I carry it depends on the circumstances and the weather as to whether I carry OWB or IWB.

If it was good enough for Magnum PI, it is good enough for you.

I carry on occasion a slightly modified 1952 Colt Super .38, or a 1925 Colt Commercial Government that has been refinished by the late Bill Adair, and has mammoth ivory grips.
