There will be some velocity difference between the 5" and the 4" but as I see it, a handgun is more of a short range weapon that is limited on its effective range. I don't know what that range is but, I don't see the velocity difference as being a major issue to be concerned with.

I don't have facts to spout here, but I don't think there would be a tremendous difference in a 4 or 5 inch barrel as far as ballistics go. I do know that they make .45 ammo specifically for a 3" barrel, so it must degrade some substantial amount below 4. I'm sure there are some reloaders around who can settle this with facts and quickly.

Like caressing the backside of the hottest woman on the planet. Butter. Clean. Crisp. No ridiculous take up. Trigger is linear and travels straight back, not a rocker motion like other triggers. The trigger breaks like a glass rod and there is almost zero overtravel. It's the greatest trigger design out there.

*yeah, I got a crappy signature line because I lost a sig bet to a sadist who likes Man Beards*

Can't describe it much better than that. The only bad thing about a 1911 trigger - is it makes all other triggers feel like crap by comparison.

The first time you shoot a 1911, you'll be amazed at how good a pistol shot you've become...
