Basic "Modern" 1911 questions


Recommended Posts

OK, my reading of the rules says these features on a factory 1911  are OK, but want a sanity check:

 

Fixed frame (dust cover) mounted accessory rail (with nothing mounted on it.)

 

3-dot tritium sights (not fibre optic or laser.)

 

Looking at trading up and find most of the guns I look at have these features.

 

Doc Sends.

Adding to Boggus's comments. The only problem you might run into is WEIGHT.  Some of the pistols with dust cover rails get pretty heavy. I remember one of the Springfield tactical models we checked was overweight.

 

Oops.  Hadn't even thought about that.

If it turns out to be a problem, there are plenty of ways to put a 1911 on a diet. Lighter stocks, alloy or polymer mainspring housing, GI guide rod, etc.
