Hilton Yam of 10-8 Performance talks about reloading with the 1911.
Needed for running the gun fast?Where's the line? Do you believe that oversized safety levers, beavertail grip safeties, 21st century sights (or red dot optics), beveled edges, grip checkering, and high cut front strap, with practice are not needed also?
Well Balls, Do you see anyone here telling you you HAVE to do something their way?Where's the line?
Thumb safety Perhaps? Never seen a lever on a 1911.Do you believe that oversized safety levers,
All my competition pistols never had a beavertail on them. I did that for one reason, people didn't ask to borrow my pistols since my triggers were very light and the hammer bit.beavertail grip safeties,
Well what do you consider a 21st century sight?21st century sights (or red dot optics),
Hey if that winds your watch, great. None of mine have ever been and never will be.beveled edges
All my pistols are checkered except a 1911A1NM which was military stippled, a Range Officer I haven't gotten around to and a LWC I'm deciding what I want to do with it. I've been shooting the new LWC as much as weather permits (roughly around 750 rounds so far the past 4-5 weeks) and I'm not so sure I'll checker it. First time I've owned a 9mm in 42 years and I'm having a ball with it.grip checkering,
Haven't yet, but I may consider it for a new Range officer I still haven't gotten around to doing anything with in future. I just got a great price and it's put away for the meantime.and high cut front strap,
Look, from my point of view some of what people are doing is really great and some are trying to be really good without the work (we had them way back then too). I honestly don't know what you do or don't do.with practice are not needed also?
Well saidNeeded for running the gun fast?
oversized safety levers = nope (but helpful)
beavertail = nope
good sights = yep
beveled edges = yep
front strap checkering = nope
high cut front strap = nope
Practice is the most important.
