As far as magwells go, I just this morning installed a Stan Chen SI magwell on my DW Vigil and it was stupid easy and the part looks amazing! I’d definitely recommend taking a look at those!Update. I installed the nighthawk drop in trigger. Which was not drop in due to Springfields garbage mim beavertail. I had to dremel out a bunch of material which for not being a gunsmith was pretty nerve racking. Trigger pull is now averaging under 4lb. And is much better. Potentially gonna go a magwell in the future but other than that, I'm done. Came out nice
Is that the cost of the gun, or is that what 355 rounds of .45 acp go for now? I wouldn't know because I haven't seen .45 acp on store shelves since early 2020.At the end of the day I put 355 rds thru her with zero, zilch, nada, no misfires, feeding problems, or even primer misfires… $1078.00 well spent.
Your question's sorta funny in a way?Is that the cost of the gun, or is that what 355 rounds of .45 acp go for now? I wouldn't know because I haven't seen .45 acp on store shelves since early 2020.
the best i could do, to answer you, is give you this link, then you contact them..??I have carried a Springfield 1911A1 Loaded Micro Compact since my state legalized concealed carry but have not had the opportunity to purchase a full size. This one has Buy Me written all over it except for ONE thing. Being a southpaw I do prefer an ambi' safety. All the other functions I have adapted to. Is there a chance that an Ambi Safety will be offered as an aftermarket item that I can install? That would put it in the cart, so to speak.
I agree with you. I know that when it comes to 1911s there is more of a tendency to stay traditional, but with something like the Emissary which has taken a future forward approach to the 1911 not making it optic ready was a miss. I struggle to shoot 25 yds with iron sights, but with a red dot I can go 50yds with little problem.Happy T-Day, everyone.
The pro and con that have me waffling about buying an Emissary:
Pro: You can easily insert a gloved index finger (or really fat index finger) inside the trigger guard; handy to be able to do in our cold winters if you need to draw your weapon in a hurry.
Con: No provision for a red dot sight. With red dot sights being the rage and boon, you'd think that would be a no-brainer feature to add to a new pistol--there's the marketing aspect targeting older gun owners--who are arguably a large segment of customers who still buy 1911s--and whose aging vision finds red dot sights a welcome gun accessory.
