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.I like that little thumb safety that's on the original USGI 1911 pistols.
I detest anything "extended" on a 1911.:steamed:
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.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?
