A small amount of extra mass can noticeably reduce perceived recoil. What is the mass of each pistol?I was shooting my Dan Wesson Valor Government and Nighthawk Enforcer yesterday. I must say that I thought the Valor was softer shooting with the same ammunition (Federal American Eagle 230 grain FMJ). Perhaps the weight of the rail changes the equation?
What do you think of recoil in railed and non-railed 1911s?
Please do not respond with wasteful responses like "Railed 1911's are not 1911's" or "My religion excludes railed 1911's." I want useful information.
