    On a 1.0 with the serial number plate right where the safety would otherwise be, I don't know of one.

    Precisely.

    I have two Gen5 G17 pistols. The first one I bought is a laser beam. I've used it to kill squirrels at ridiculous distances, my furthest shot being just under 70 yards. My second gun,...

    According to Apex, they have double the amount of extra material on the fitting pad at the bottom and more material at the back of the barrel hood that the semi-drop in barrels have. So it means...

    The levers themselves are made of a steel stamping. The positive "click" of the safety comes from the interaction of the angles stamped on the safety lever itself and the detent in the sear block. If...

    As best I understand it, the footprint with the two fasteners you highlight there is the footprint of the optic. They ship it with an adapter plate to make it fit an RMR or MOS style optics cut that...

    I think it's kind of like Les Pauls or pretty much anything from the Gibson custom shop these days. Their customers tend to be people who already own other Gibson guitars and still have sizeable...

    I don't think single stack 1911's in 9mm make sense to anyone anymore. With Wilson's EDC based double stack guns seeming to work pretty well and the Stack-A-Toe obsession, if you want a 9mm with 1911...

    I saw video of one going off as it went back into the holster just today. Multiple witnesses said the shooter's finger was nowhere near the trigger.

    The biggest benefit to your typical concealed carrier is going to be a less annoying mounting standard. While I've seen plenty of dots break, I see the mounting fail far more often than I do the...

    For me the downside is minimal takeup and you're right on to dropping the sear. If you are using the safety in theory it's more 1911-like.

    None that I'm aware of. The new Sampfox "Kraken" comes closest but isn't quite the same.

    What I can tell you about the Acro is that it doesn't have any noticeable distortion in the optic window....

    I'd see how it shoots. If it patterns well for you, don't worry about it. If it sucks out loud, try honing the bore, chamber, and forcing cone and see if that makes a difference. I don't know where...

    If you have thick, meaty fingers like mine, an angled pick works very well for helping extract a damaged o-ring and installation of the new one. But apart from that it's pretty straightforward.

    My guess is the finish Wilson applies. I don't think they're vibra-honing the guns before they refinish them. Their finish has a fairly high teflon content in it, as best I remember.

    On the older guns the non-safety frames have the serial number on the frame right where the plugs would be. I think they sold pro's with the old frames for quite some time with the old style frames....
