    I like grips that cover the pin. Seriously am I the only person that doesn't like the pin to show?
    Seems the more guns I see the more I notice the pin showing.
    I can take it better on black guns but just can't get past it on a stainless or equivalent.
    Uggggggg !!!!!
    NHC is notorious for this, I don't think they have a set on any of their guns that covers the pin.
    VZ is included in makers that show the pin.
    I'm sure some of you have pet peeves about something you like or don't like on a 1911.
    Magwells seems to be another subject that folks are split on.

    Ad yours below if you have one.

    The pins showing doesn't bother me but, I for one, think the magwells look ugly on a 1911. I also don't like the bases on the bottom of mags. I prefer them flush fit.

    I hate onions!!!:sick2:

    VZ will make them to cover the pin but I think you might have to call.

    I thought so, but they almost look too good to be true ivory! That is the nicest looking ivory grips I’ve ever seen.

    I like to have the pin covered also. 'nother thing I don't like is non magwell cut grips with a magwell.

    I'm not too fussy about the pin showing unless they are magwell grips with a magwell in place. What I really don't care for are huge "drop in" beavertail grip safeties.

    Rails on a 1911 remind me of Love Handles on a Supermodel.
