getting tired of the looks of front cocking serrations

Is it just me, or does anyone else feel the same? The only gun I have left with front serrations is my Kimber Custom Classic, it may have to go down the road too.

Yeah, it is getting rather lame. Beretta is even doing it on their Elites. Other than marginal weight reduction, they serve no real purpose on non-optic guns.

No, I have always liked the looks of front cocking serrations.

Thank God, I am not alone. I would pay extra for a 1911 to NOT have the front of the slide cut up. To me it ruins the pistol.

Aesthically, I've never cared for them, especially on a 1911.

But I know more than one experienced shooter who went from hating front serrations to appreciating their utility, after they started shooting guns so equipped.

To each his own.

Im not a big fan myself. I guess Id never really thought of it until I read the original post, but upon checking my safe I concur.

I also apparently prefer the traditional thumb and grip safety as opposed to the extended versions offered on every production, semi custom, and full custom 1911 variant offered today.

I don't like them either. Only my Kimber Eclipse II looks good with them, IMHO.

BTW this topic is too General Discussionish so I'm moving it there.
