It is all there in this great pistol, the aggressive serrated checkering I initially thought would be too much but it is not. It relly offers a positive grip when shooting, if your hands are wet from sweat or whatever you can be assured the extra grip afforded is truly appreciated. This is a very accurate, smooth easy shooting 1911. I am far from an expert on 1911`s but I would definitely buy this again, absolutely a pleasure to shoot, its weight makes recoil almost non existent. Sig Sauer quality in an affordable 1911, can`t ask for any better.
