    Nice. The cocking serrations don't do it for me either. I like a full bobtail, not the semi-round butt thing that them and Kimber are doing. But, it's better than nothing.

    Only thing that bugs me about the S&W 1911s is that darn external extractor... why'd they go and do that?

    From all accounts, it works very well. Unlike Kimbers old version.

    Yeah seriously. Those serrations look like the bastard child of a Kobra Carry and a M&P. :ack:

    I like it. The serrations aren't too bad. I could get used to them.

    Yeah that's what men do. They customize things instead of putting their wieners on other mens face while looking at pictures of dark cavernous waste lands. :tongueout:

    Not bad. Would be better w/o FCS and a true bobtail instead of the rounded butt. I guess the designers at S&W read gun magazines in the bathroom and have seen the Kimber ads on the back covers so much, that the idea seeped into their heads. :dunno:
