So I finally finished my Glock 17 gen4 minus the magwell.
Specs: Zev Tech Socom complete slide in space gray DLC, threaded and dimpled barrel, Zev Tech lightweight extended striker, Zev Tech sights, RMR cut, Agency Arms drop in non adjustable trigger, and Taran Tactical +6 basepads. I also have e the co-witness iron sights if I ever put an rmr on it. Eventually want to put the Zev Tech magwell on as well.
Shoots great and I messed around with spring rates/connectors because trigger was too light. Got it up to about 4.5lb now which is where I like it.
I thought I had it figured out. The pistol for me. The "I don't CARE what other people want, or what's popular, it's for ME" pistol. I'm equipped with some good revolvers which I'll never let go of. So that niche is covered. Good to go.
I had grown completely weary of Glocks, my oldest son wanted a Glock, so I gave him two. Good to go.
Now to figure out what I want for ME. Borrowed his Beretta 92. Loved it. Carried it for a while. Thought "I'll go this route." Bought a Beretta 92G Elite II. "THIS is PURDY! This is the one for me!"
So why can't I get away from the constant siren's call of the 1911?
I can't stand this much longer.

Recent articles in The American Rifleman are of interest to me, don't remember the names of the articles or the issues, but of recent times there was an article on the pistols submitted to the Army Test Trials of 1900, then early auto pistols, and the March 2018 issue contains a photo story of early Mauser pistols. And the back page I Have This Old Gun... depicts an old Sauer auto pistol. Single Action man that I am, I find these early pistols and their development of interest.
