If yall had to choose between this s&w or the rem r1 enhanced, which woul it be. I'm torn. Both stainless.
The R1 Enhanced is cool but I personally think the S&W is one of the best looking 1911s on the market. I love the fish scale serrations (just like on their M&Ps) and I also like the external extractor. It's easier to service.
Like I said, out of the box, the trigger is awesome. The series 70 style firing mechanism is very smooth and it has a titanium firing pin.
The safety has a very solid feel to it with a positive engagement and it's ambi if that's your thing.
I've changed on mine:
Sights -> Dawson Precision Fiber Optic (only because it was a target pistol and I didn't need the night sights. But they're available if you want to buy them from me)
Magwell and MSH -> Ed Brown Maxiwell (wanted a larger magwell for magazine changes)
Springs -> Wilson Combat spring kit from Midway ($20 - the recoil spring was a bit weak on mine from the factory and the Wilson kit included a new mainspring, so my trigger pull is even lower now)
Magazine release -> Wilson Combat Extended (again, for quicker mag changes)
Grips -> G10 Tiger Stripe VZ Grips (look badass)
You don't have to do all these mods but I think it really makes Gloria stand out...
