im not a fan of beavertails nite sights serrations other than the standard ones near the hammer area. i also dont care for exrtended safeties or ambi safeties rails or other tati cool stuff.

While I am left handed, I also see no reason for ambi safeties.
Other than that, I like most of the things you do not.

Isn't that called YMMV?

  1. An arched MSH. Forces your purchase up and closer in line with the barrel axis.
  2. A hi-ride bevertail. Protects the thumb web from hammer/slide bite.
  3. Sights you can see. I'm 60+, this may not be an issue for you, it is for me!
  4. A top quality magazine. If you can not feed your pistol, well you get it!
  5. A good set of grips. This is for good purchase of the firearm. Shooting should not be comfortable, but MUST be comforting!
A good list, but I would still check for a decent trigger job, too.

everyone has different tastes thats why there are so many different 1911's. the basic design really lends itself well to customization. with glock or xd customization is a super small pool of choices.

the only way to really discover what features your looking for is to hit gunshops and gun shows. handle as many different 1911's as you can.
