Is It Just Me?
We have not had a: Is it just me? topic in a while. Every 1911A1 I have had worked on stayed plain and simple except for the grips. Why? I want a pistol that works all the time, has sights I can see, and hits where it is aimed. The 1911 may receive upgraded sights, new barrel, trigger job, and match bushing. Improvements are made only as required, if a handgun works when I buy it stays stock. Regards, Richard ;D
Examples are my:
Systema Colt 1927 with plain Novak sights, Series 80 barrel, match bushing, and trigger job
#2 Norinco with match bushing, Novak sights, trigger group (trigger, sear, and hammer), extended grip safety:
I sure like your pistols there Richard. Nice job. I just changed the grips and screws in my new S&W. That's a first for me. I just happen to see them on a vendor's table at the gun show and had to have them. Heck I even went top shelve and bought some SS screws. $8.00 dollars for 4 screws, now how crazy is that. I guess I missed my meds or something. Oh well I like the looks.
About the only thing I've ever done to a 1911 is sights, grips, backstrap.

I carried a 1911 for years before "going Glock." After trying every silly aftermarket gadget out there, I came to similar conclusions. Jeff Cooper was right, all you really need are "sights you can see, a trigger you can use, and a dehorning job."
I do confess a weakness for high-sweep beavertail grip safeties and Crimson Trace Lasergrips, though!
