    This is why I still love this place. Thanks guys - I mean that.

    I like a deeper rear notch, and like a narrower front. How about the Defoor's?

    Quick pic, as promised. Still sorting out the details, but the 22 seems to be GTG also. I tend to prefer 4 o'clock position. Sights still up in the air. Heinies, and some others ordered up.

    Yes and no. If the only thing you were changing were the slide mass, then yes. It would.

    If I were interested in doing a 9mm "1911", I'd be looking at the no lug 9mm barrels.
