    Another bored thread. So who out there likes the stock controls? (Safeties, hammers, slide release, etc?)

    I like: Stock GI slide release, thumb safety, but that's it I like commander hammer and beavertail. So what says the 1911 subforumers?

    I like the G.I. style guide rod and spring plug.
    All of the controls and everything else that comes on a Mil-Spec type of 1911.

    I like the wide-spur hammers.

    I like that little thumb safety that's on the original USGI 1911 pistols.

    I detest anything "extended" on a 1911.:steamed:

    Same here. Wide spur hammers, WWII type safeties, GI abbreviated guide rod (love the "press check"), standard grip safety... pretty much everything except the sights (which work just fine for anything short of competition). I prefer a log trigger and flat MSH. Anyhow, mine goes bang every time, so I'm not messing with perfection. Nothing extended on my 1911's. I did buy an ambidextrous non-extended thumb safety from Brownell's, but the pin was so big I opted not to install it.

    Good thread.

    I liked all of them until I discovered beaver tails, bobbed hammers, extended thumb safeties, extended magazine releases, grips, bobtails, lightened triggers, high visibility sights. How unsatisfied I am.

    The stock slide release does it for me.

    I'm more partial to the GI style controls and beaver tail. The sights, I'm not a huge fan of.

    I like:

    GI recoil assembly
    Short trigger
    GI slide release
    Lanyard loop mainspring housing (although I do like it recessed)
    GI mag release
    GI barrel bushing

    Come to think of it, the only "upgrades" I insist on are a beavertail, extended combat safety, and larger sights.

    I like them all .......but I am guilty of milling down Ed Brown thumb safeties to 'look' like the GI version with just a little more meat than the GI.

    The older I get, the more I despise all the goofy add on doodads.
    I would rather have my gun be GI.

    It's to late for all the others I have though, but any newer ones will most likely be a GI style.
