    I posted this on Sigforum and now I want to see what Glocktalkers think about it. Do you prefer FCS on your 1911? Or do you hate them? Or are you indifferent? Why?

    No! No FCS for me...they are ugly, but I don't even have a 1911, so what do I know? :rofl:

    I have one with and one without..If I were to order a semi custom, I would order it without.. would it stop me from buying one just because it has em? no.. I guess I don't really like em.. but they don't bother me enough that I would pass on a 1911 that I like that had em.. is that ambivalent enough for ya? :headscratch:

    doen't matter to me.

    i do find myself using the FCS to check the chamber while i'm at the range though.

    I actually own as many with as without.

    I prefer without, but its not a real big deal to me.

    Don't like the way they look and have never used them.

    I like the way they look and prefer them on my 1911's, but it isnt a deal breaker if the gun doesnt have them. However, if/when i do design my semi-custom, it will most certainly have them. On top of liking the way they look, i also do press checks and it makes it much easier

    I used to think of them as an abomination. Just don't care anymore. I've had people try and tell me they're necessary on a modern handgun, not seeing it myself. Some are done tastefully, others look like a semi-auto cheese grater. My two Colts didn't have them. My Custom II has them and I actually kind of like it with them.

    Gun looks better without.

    I have both and prefer them however and am not as concerned with looks as with function.

    Makes checking chamber easier.

    While they aren't my cup o tea, I really like the way they look on the old JMB designed 1902 Military model. Either Colt or JMB moved them to the back of the slide for the 1905 Military and there they've remained until as of late.

    They might look better proportionally with a longer barrel and if they were not slanted ala the 02, but who knows? Or cares? Maybe the full length frame helps as well visually... I dunno. What do you think? (see linked photo from Lisker's site)

    They have their place in history and what comes around goes around... I guess.

    I don't have a 1911, YET.

    But my vote is:
    Like the way they look *without*, but they might be useful to have. At least, if they don't make the gun look like crap. If I saw a gun they looked BAD on, it might make me not buy it. But if they blended in okay... it probably wouldn't matter to me.

    It depends on the gun, but by and large, I like them.

    99% of the time, NO... i HATE front cocking serrations... some guns they look good on though, especially race style guns where they get creative with them.

    and get rid of 75% of Rollmarks out there too... some of them just kill the gun and are enough reason for me to not buy it.

    That's a beautiful 1911, but I can't do the rail.
