I had never used a FLAT housing 1911 until last weekend. Now I have both; a 5" with an arched and an Officer's with a flat.

As shipped, I liked the arched better... I noticed "something missing" from the flat housing gun.

Then I replaced the grips on my Officer's with ultra thin grips. That made a big difference. I much prefer the flat housing with the thin grips.. they seem to compliment each other, making a generally tighter package. With the full thickness grips, I like the arched housing. It somehow seems to "continue the lines" of the handle... I guess is the best way to put it...

Just my 2 cents.
