I have nothing to add except I'm also curious about what kind of 1911 it is.

I'm also a little confused of why you got rid of the Beretta that you know you love so much for a gun that is new to you and therefore an unknown.

Not trying to criticize you. Just curious as to you rationale for giving up a perfectly good gun for an unknown.

Because my dad offered to buy the 1911 for me if I gave him the 92a1. So in the long run I get it back anyway

Trade with your father. You get your gun back, he gets the 1911. Everybody's happy.

Try using a shooting glove. You will become accustom to holding the 1911.

I still would like to see a pic of how you hold it.

I run Hogue scales on mine, no wrap arounds for me (also run a Pachmayr arched mainspring housing). Comfy.

Hogue finger groove handgrips will eliminate that for you as it created a smoother & a bit softer platform for your fingers period... It also helps with retention.... I've got it on the one I carry and I love it!!
