My first 1911, a Kimber team match.
Springfield I traded with some $$$ for a Kimber...Don't Know who milled the holes in the slide or why.
They are drilled through on each side and are matched up with excellent precision... The barrel is untouched... I think it was done for aesthetic purposes, and perhaps to lighten the slide a bit, but not to make it compensated.... I can't imagine anyone considering it safe to have the expelled gases coming out through both sides... It was a looker with it's Armorkote finish , Novak sights, and other accessories and it always caught people's attention, probably because the "holes" were so unique in appearance, It was built well , fired accurately but was just too big and heavy to suit my purposes... I ended up trading up for a Kimber Ultra CDP II that is not only put together much tighter and with better materials, but fits in my pocket when I wear cargo shorts (I live in Phoenix, AZ), weighs half as much, and is much more accurate (I don't know how with it's shorter barrel, but it just is)... I needed something thinner and lighter, yet more powerful than my H&K P2000 SK for my daily carry gun... The Springfield's build quality in general, and those holes which simply devalued the gun leaves me with no sense of loss in getting rid of it... My next 1911 will probably be one of the beautiful custom types that you see pictured throughout this thread (Once my finances permit it).
