I would like to get your thoughts on the Requirements for a fighting or working 1911,.
Light rail? Ambi's? Magwell? Checkering? Sights? Material? etc etc etc

I'm thinking an all steel 5", Lightrail, frontstrap checkering, and a set of fixed sights,. What says you?...Udog

5" steel frame, decent fixed sights, decent trigger, sticky grips, reliable magazines.

Other than "sticky grips", I agree 100% (IMHO, "sticky" grips tend to stick & grab your concealment clothes and also won't allow you to adjust your grip after you initially grab your pistol.......but your miliage my vary).

I also require a beavertail on my "working" 1911s to get a higher hold on the piece.

As simple as possible.....as tough as possible....

Reliable (goes "bang" every time)
Good sights (Heinie, Yo-Bo...either retro or professional...I like tritium in the front only)
Decent trigger



Steel, no MIM
To me, checkering is nice, but not necessary.

Good sights,(night sights are a good option) good trigger, All steel, as little MIM as possible. No light rail..not needed, never were..Good mags, no magwells, either. no ambi safteys, (unless you're left handed) I like'em parked, black or OD Green as little light reflective as possible, Grips that fit your hand well, and reliable, By that I mean it can shoot at least 500 rounds without ANY faliures,With a variety of diffrent types of ammo, RN's HP's LSWC's etc, This is important if you're going to use this as a CCW. In fact, it's probably one of the most important things. Practice,practice, practice....The other most important thing. The best 1911 in the world is'nt worth a shit, if you don't know how to shoot it. and shoot it well.

the one your comfortable with, that goes bang every time you pull the trigger.

A Wilson CQB seems to fit the bill, or a Les Baer TRS.

night sights and lots of checkering help out too...

Reliable
Easy to find front sight
one that you know like the back of your hand and you shoot a lot.

That is all.
