.. I've been pulled into the 1911 trap.

Trying to decide on where to start off on this 1911 thing. Can anyone explain the differences between the SA mil-spec and the full size? The only thing I can tell is the "beavertail" grip. Which brings up the question.. what are the pros and cons of the beavertail? Better grip but can snag on clothing etc.

Ive been caught in the same boat. I beleive the full model is LOADED as they say with extras stuff like the beaver tail, skeletonized hammer and trigger, sights and theyre integrated locking system. You can see all the loaded options on thier webpage. I was gonna get the milspec but then fell in love with the px9151l.
