So originally I had been set on a X TAC. I had the order in for a few days and got the call back from John stating that installing the speed chute was not a possibility as of yet. Well this was a huge kick in the crotch to me!! From my training and competing experience, a 1911 without a magwell is just useless to me so ultimately that was the deal breaker Instead..... I ordered a CQB. Heres my specs: *Silver frame/msh/barrel bushing *Black slide/speedchute/recoil plug/and all small parts(safety, grip safety, slide stop, flat trigger, hammer, pins) *omit FCS, omit "CQB" *boot sight rear, red FO front *bevel frame and flush cut slide stop *flush cut barrel and reverse crown *BP Ambi Safety *Speedchute --I might have forgot something, the invoice is on the shops email, but i think thats it. So how does this sound? Am i forgetting anything? I think im going to cry when i get the gun without FCS because i am like the only one that likes them, but i did want to make it as clean as possible. Oh im also having them fill all those empty mag spaces with ETM's! I started to really consider the Tactical Elite once the X TAC was a no go, but I didnt want to get a semi custom just to use at the range. The coned barrel is illegal in IDPA and you have to shoot open in uspsa to utilize it. SOOO this guy is going to be my cheaper, utilitarian 1911, and I'll get a coned barrel later, Im thinking I'll probably go to Nighthawk for that anyway... Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
