I couldn't hold out any longer for a modern version of my 1911's. I was considering the CZ -97B and Tang Witness Elite Match in 45 but.......Lust got the best of me  O0  Just ordered the FNH - FNX Tactical 45ACP in charcoal 'battle' grey with titanium grey slide with a limited offer free Vortex Venom optic. Can't wait to get my paws around it's 15+1 of 45ACP.

Please post pics when you get it - sounds awesome :)
Thanks s0nspark for the IMGUR posting tutorial in General Topics. Hopefully I've resized this correctly to 640pixels wide:


Looks great! :-)

Thanks s0nspark! I mounted an extra RMR I had, but I just received the 'free' Vortex Venom' that was included in purchases thru Dec 31st. The Venom might be a better combo. Pretty good deal considering the gun is pre-milled and already has co-witness tritium sights set up. I really like the combo decocker/manual safety setup on this FN-FNX Tactical gun. You can run it SAO like a 1911 using the safety, or like a CZ/Sig DA/SA using the decocker only which returns to the 'fire' position. $1,075 all-in.

I wish CZ would produce an MOS ready set-up like several other brands.

However, now that I've figured out how to use IMGUR, I'll try to replace the dead Photobucket images in my old post of the $300 SP-01 optic set-up with J-Point that co-witnesses well without milling. (It's the bottom gun in 3 guns above). A lot of guys want to try an optic/co-witness set-up on their CZ-75's but don't want to mill their slide.
Thanks again for your tutorial on IMGUR. The key is re-sizing your image to 640 pixels wide so it doesn't go HUGE!

Setting the size the image displays at this way is also nice because people can still right-click and open the image in a new tab at full size ;-)

hkvp9 even though it gives me a blister on bottom of index finger if I shoot over 150 rounds.
Precisely why I sold mine. Hated the groove and didn’t want to pay Grey Guns to smooth it out.

My fav so far is my 92A1 with Wilson combat rear sight. I grabbed a 92G decocker kit which I’ll install sometime soon, hopefully. Shield is my EDC which I shoot pretty well too.

Does the 92G decocker kit eliminate the redundant upside down safety??(1911's and almost all other defensive guns the safety off is down, not up). I had an 8000 Cougar that was a fantastic firearm; accurate, reliable, durable, soft shooting.... except for that cockamamie backwards setup.

Yup, turns the safety into a 92G-type decocker only.

Other than CZ’s ?

Sig Sauer would be at the top of th list... heavy metal and hammers of course ;-)

Now when I hit the lottery I will give Dan Wesson a serious look

Sig p239, p229 (9mm) and loaded operator 1911 (45), though I haven't had the pleasure of shooting truly exceptional (expensive) 1911s.
