As long as there is no rail it's all good.

I agree about serrations. I don't use or need them. A long slide will give plenty of purchase surface for racking. Leaning towards clean slab.

The rails are essential to me. We've had to go out to check on nightime commotions and have run into skunks, racoons, coyotes, foxes and bobcats that were trying to get into the chicken coop, otherwise harassing other animals or looking for an easy meal. We've yet to run into them on our property but there are also bears and mountain lions that roam around.

All of my pistols are slabs except for that SA 1911 Target Loaded 9mm. I'm not crazy about the swept cut slides and FCS but don't really notice them while shooting. Only when I put pistol down and take pictures.

Yesterday I had a 45s shoot out. It was very interesting to compare the different guns. A lot of fun too.

OP, the slab side looks great and give a little extra weight to the front. But please of please dont get the rail on the frame. Rails belong on plastic guns, not a 1911 platform.

See pic above. The frame for the project will be my full rail TRP. I'll need it to mount my bayonet and seaonal Christmas lights and occasional piņatas.

We live in a farm at the end of a long gravel road bordered by wilderness area. Plenty of critters and predators come around at night looking for an easy meal. Always a possibility of two legged predators showing up as well. All pistols are railed except for the CZ 97b and 2 other 1911s. In my mind a gun light is essential out here.

The stock, full rail TRP below will be the base frame for the project. I'm down to final details and will most likely go with slab, flat top, no serrations and no sights except for the milled section to mount a Leupold Deltapoint.

Thank you for all the comments and remarks.

iambic out.
