First impressions, nice slide to frame fit, good finish and nice grips.

Things I don't like are the Remington magazines that came with the pistol. They are sub par.

The trigger is a bit heavy for my taste as well. No creep, but it feels like it's in the five pound range.

Thanks!

What kind of grips are you using?

You do know that those triggers are adjustable with an Allen wrench.

Yes, this will be one of the first adjustments I make.

Great gun, the trigger should smooth out after a few boxes of hardball.

Let me know how yours holds up to slide wear. Mine has wear on the left side just where it slides back into the frame when racking/shooting. But no wear on the right. It shoots just fine but that did worry me. Plus I will be switching out the sights once I could afford it. Novak wants damn near 300 dollars to put night sights in it. Damn Remington and their phillipine sight cuts. At least that's what the people at novak told me in an email. They said the dovetails are made in the phillipenes and they are a one of a kind cut. Novak will have to mill the slide. My slide to frame fit is nice but there is a very small amount of wiggle room. I'm not really a 1911 guy yet so I don't know much about slide to frame fit on these as of yet. If someone can enlighten me I would appreciate it. Thanks.
