I am sure this has been discussed already but I wanted to tell of my experience. While I don't own a full size 1911, I did just buy a Springfield Lightweight Champion. I EDC a Glock 19 in either a Pure Kustom Black Ops Pro or a CB Supertuck. It is pretty comfy to carry. The SA 1911 I just started carrying. I actually made a IWB type holster. I know the SA1911 is heavier and slide is a little bit longer BUT it is noticebly more comfortable to carry. I don't know if it is my homemade holster or the 1911. Anyone else experience this?
