Jim's answered your questions quite well.

As he said, there's lots of things you can do with the 1911 platform to get the LOP you want....thin grips, different MSHs, short triggers, etc...

I'm not a huge fan of aggressive checkering, either. My two favorite 1911s are my Springfield Loaded (no checkering, I use skate tape on the front strap), and my Smith PD (LW Commander-sized), which has a serrated front strap. Both are in 45ACP.

I find myself shooting them in IDPA more these days because they fit my hands better, and I just flat shoot them better than the Glocks I've carried for 18 years! Love my HiPowers, too, but only shoot them at local matches....something happened to the mag-disconnects in all of them.
