1911's are good looking pistols with a ton of history, but are known to be finicky at times. Glocks are not necessarily good looking & have very little history, but are one of the least finicky...

I narrowed my choice to the R1 & a SA Range Officer. I chose the RO. I just felt like it was a tighter gun. Plus I knew that it was a forged frame vs. cast frame. I wouldn't have been able to tell...
