    LOL, I guess I'm not going to find many dissenters on a 1911 forum, am I?

    My interest is piqued. With a picture, it will have peaked.

    One key feature that we think you will appreciate is that our Government sized model will be fitted with a bull barrel.


    Well, okay, perhaps there's a JMB spec G4 available in the years it'll take me to get to the point where I can purchase one legally..

    My preference is "no." Anything that encourages placing one's hand in proximity to the muzzle is not a good thing, in my belief system.

    No! The absence of front slide serrations does not appear to have the negative feedback, that the presence of front slide serrations creates. Also, front slide serrations tend to tear up holsters and are compared by some 1911 purists, to training wheels on a bicycle.

    I like them and I use the front of the slide for a press check. That was how I was instructed years ago. As an instructor now, I do not teach that way mostly because I train people on Glocks, but also because it does introduce a potential for injury if not done with focus. I don't want to be responsible for teaching an unnecessary technique that can get somebody injured if they become lax in their gun handling.

    That being said, I still like front serrations but can live without them too.
    No worries. Let's see those G4s already!!!

    I would say no to both the front cocking serrations and the bull barrel...
