In General, that is why I said 1911's.

The mag void in the 1911 sits well forward in the grip. A significant portion of the grip is taken up with the Main Spring Housing and it's ignition components.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Flint Rock you lucky bastard that is one beautiful and highly functional .45 pistol. I like the Bobtail, I have been contemplating for some time of bobbing my pistols. They seem to conceal much better with that grip butt corner missing.

Oh, okay, thanks for clarifying. Random thought in a post about a guy's Nighthawk that doesn't have front serrations.

It gets your front sight back down quicker. If you're used to shooting a 1911 without it and fire one with it, you'd be surprised at how much more quickly follow up shots can be squeezed off.

I don't like the way bobtails fit my hand. I'd deal with printing before I dealt with a bobtail.
