Concerning the parkerizing, I love it. I want the pistol to show some wear here and there and there is something about parkerizing that I like, but the sights are a different story. I will probably agree with your sentiments there. I don't think I will like the plain black iron sights.
You are correct. If you are carrying and need it, it will be a close fight.msjdgman said:Don`t know if you`ve made any decisions yet, but I too have a pricier 1911 but picked up the GI just 2 months ago. I don`t plan on doing any mods other than perhaps changing out the tiny combat sights. And I may not even do that. So far this gun is a shooter....hasn`t had one malfunction. And I`m carrying the darned thing. If I should ever, heaven forbid, get into a self defense situation....all the bonus features of the higher priced guns won`t make a tinkers damn. It will at that moment be combat. And that`s what the GI is, a combat gun. And it is a reasonable enough price to begin with for "tinkering with". Just my thoughts.:dope:
