STI has my vote, they have a cool cut to the frame. Who's do you like?

Now if STI would just fire the blind guy who chooses the roll marks with his numb fingers. . . .:p

My vote goes to S&W for the M&P. "Look Ma, no boringly straight serrations!"

Ed Brown gets a nod too.

Wish I could do pictures. My vote goes to the Smith 945. Maybe somebody else can provide a photo.

I think Nighthawk's golf ball serration looks funny.

I have a very strong pereference for Colt's. Simple, effective, elegant. "Everything you need and nothin' you don't."

:barf: is more like it. And I thought the stylized "SIS" letters on the Kimber model of the same name were bad. :rolleyes: What is the point of that crap?

That reminds me of the goofy stuff Mossberg has been hanging off the ends of their shotguns barrel.

I don't know why and Ill bet they dont either but they are laughing all the way to the bank about it.

I might buy an STI if they would remember, "it's a pistol not a billboard". Who needs or uses front slide serrations, ever? Smooth sides, clean lines, classic looks, but to each his own, to some gaudy equals quality. Not I. FYI, it only looks like a 1911 if it has an external extractor, or a polymer frame. It's good that pistol smiths express them selves, but its gotten out of hand, just another FAD then on to the next...

I agree 100%. The only reason that I got rid of my Dan Wesson 1911s was that I just couldn't get used to forward cocking serrations. I prefer the looks of the traditional ones.

please delete this thread before it encourages mfgrs to add even more (and dumber looking) "serrations" to the poor 1911

I like my Kimber Raptor and the serrations sets it apart from other makers.

I like my Kimber Eclipes Pro II's straight serations, and since it is a Pro (4 inch) there are no fancy serations on the front just clean lines of a 1911.

The race for makers to have the oddest cocking serrations are like those myriad of stupid looking rims I see in certain parts of my city.

The serrations on Les Baer pistols feel great.... I wish my Dan Wesson CBOB had cocking serrations that were spaced tighter like on the Baers.

Bling is bling. Just like most fishing lures are designed to catch fishermen and not fish. I often wonder as I'm handling the different brands at the local gun shop on Saturday afternoons, if the difference in the serrations have a technical purpose or are only cosmetic, and if the person that designed them was a gun tech or a graphic designer.

Does make for an interesting thread tho.........

It makes a difference IMO.

my M&P has a very aggressive bite to it opposed to my glock.

Agreed there, I never felt the need to add grip tape to the rear of my M&P slide like I did to the Glock.

S&W 945

Thanks, Boats. I was hoping somebody would step up with a photo and you did! :)

No sweat. There really aren't that many pistols that deviate from the straight and narrow on the slide serrations and you knew about one that not many folks consider.

Is the 945 you pictured your gun? Mine is one of my very favorite pistols.

It's a cropped high res photo I downloaded from S&W. I have considered the 945 in the past, but kept buying true 1911s instead.

The M&P has my vote. Attractive and highly functional. You will not have the slide slip out of your fingers.

" I got rid of my 1911 because it didnt look right"

lol.


Frankly I dont care much about slide serrations, but I can nominate the worst.

CZ. My CZs serrations are fine there is just not enough of em.

How about these art deco jobs on the TT33? They'd be all-time great if they didn't have that ugly pin showing.

The fanciest, "coolest" slide serrations are worthless if they are not also functional.

The front serrations on that STI Master are cut the wrong way.
Obviously the intent was to 'frame' the gun's name rather than add functionality.

RobMoore
March 8, 2010, 09:41 PM
I bet they have functionality just the same.

How boring would the world be if we were all satisfied with as-issued Colt M1911s?

I like the brown scales and the STI "tooth" they originally came out on an open pistol with a red dot and are nice to have if you don't have a racker. If you want endless options go check out SVI's gun builder you can get anything you want as they are all custom.

I've seen a couple with the rim size on the rear window. I find them quite entertaining.
