I'm not sure what I'll change on it yet. I really need to get the Norinco finished. I know I will not be putting a flat trigger on on it.:supergrin:

Those R1's are nice looking guns. I like the basic 1911 look and the nice sights are a plus. Had the opportunity to shoot my friends new R1 and it performed flawlessly and shot well. Great gun for the money IMO.

Congrats! :cool:

Thanks. I'm not understanding the Shipwreck reference but, when I first got into guns I shot a beat up 92 and really liked how it felt and for being something so used, it shot extremely well. I then bought a SA Mil-Spec and its been 1911s as my #1 gun, however I've always had a want for a 92. Well I went to my LGS to see if they had anything 1911 wise and nothing seemed to catch my eye. I decided just to browse the other cases where I happened upon the Beretta section and couldn't help but ask to see the 92-A1. After fondling it for a bit I put money down on it right then and there. It seemed to have the best features of the 90-two and 92FS in one package. I felt like I was sinning since I bought a pistol nowhere close to a 1911 on March 29th. :whistling:

In any case, I'm guessing that the 90-two mags are the same as the 92-A1?

ETA: Ahhhh, now I get the Shipwreck reference. :upeyes: Well the difference is that I didn't sell any 1911s to buy the Beretta. The 1911 is still my #1 gun but the Beretta has been something I've always wanted to pick up. :cool:

Ahem, did someone not fondle a 92A1 as well looking at Shipwrecks post?

held a 92A1, and it looks great. But still a little hung up on the fat grip. Are there slimmer grips available?

^^^ :rofl:

I'm not denying anything. Have been recently drawn to the look of the 92. Held a couple at the gun show. Just need to shoot a few to see how I will like them.

Was just busting your ba11s for not buying another 1911 on its birthday.:tongueout:

They should I have a 96 and a 90-two .40 cal and you can swap those mags.
