I agree...the Girsan's have a better fit/finish from what I've experienced...and the Gen 2's that are available right now look to be even BETTER...feature's wise....with the following things added to them for 2013:
Novak Style Sites-Black Front & White Dot Rear
Sites are Dovetailed Front & Rear
Full Length Guide Rod
Comp Sear Spring with improved/lightened trigger pull
Extended thumb safety
speed bump on grip safety (I'm not sure if that's new or if they added it in late or only on certain models in the previous years...but I like it either way)
and with the Rail..it's just what I'd like to have in an economy priced 45.
I'd like to have one like that..with a nice matte finish and I may get one and cerakote it in FDE or desert Tan or something of that nature.
My next new econo-45 will probably be a Girsan gen2 with the rail:
