Default Railed 1911

Finally decided to add a railed 1911 (with night sights) to the collection. Yeah, I know, if JMB wanted a rail he'd have designed it with one. I figure everyone should own the ultimate tacticool weapon for home defense (especially for zombie attacks at night) and I decided I'll put a Streamlight TLR-2 on it. I'm considering a Kimber SIS or a Springer TRP - but I'm leaning towards the TRP (model # PC9105LP).

Hydrashok is looking for me now and I'm sure he'll find me a good deal on one. Here's pix of a railed TRP that sold locally a week ago...

I'm luke warm on a rail on a 1911. It just seems to fugly up an otherwise sleek looking pistol. I know they serve their purpose but it somehow seems just wrong to me for the platform.

I think I'm going to get a Taurus PT1911 with rails sometime. They're a LOT less then Kimbers, I already own a Colt, and I don't like the low-end Springfields...

Whatever I decided on, it will be replacing my Glock 23 with night-sites and Surefire X300.

I already have 4 traditional 1911s so that "square" is well filled. They are the platform I shoot the best so I thought it'd make sense to have one with a rail and night sights as a primary home defense gun. This one would never be carried so I don't worry about limiting my holster choices...

Hell, go for the Streamlight TLR-2addition NGIB. I think you will like the convenience, may be a little bulky, but IMO, I think it will help at night and it can be removed for range time if needed, or left on for laser dry or live fire targeting.

Everyone should have special purpose weapons, if they want, and if they can afford them.

I am getting the TLR-2 with whatever railed 1911 I get. Thought about getting the pistol bayonet - but I'm just not cool enough for that...

Smith makes a nice railed 1911.

But I'm a bit of a Smith fan.

Rails are for mall ninja's and glock owners.

There ain't no need to screw up a good 1911 with that crap. OMG I think I need to kick you in the junk NGIB....
