For those of you who own autoloaders with front-cocking serrations, be honest: do you ever really use them? The USMC small arms instructors taught me how to do a "press check" some forty years ago on the venerable 1911. We certainly didn't need those front-cocking serrations to perform this function. Not once. Ever. Personally, I believe FCSs to be the spawn of the devil on any 1911 ... Can you imagine the classic lines of a Browning High-Power spoiled by front-cocking serrations? Why do we tolerate them on 1911s? Full-size CZ-75 pistols -- why would you despoil the prettiest pistol ever produced with front-cocking serrations? Why rail-less and tail-less SIG P-series pistols look much better without the dreaded FCS. Again: anyone think they're really needed? Anyone really use them? Be honest ... For the record: I have had to accept them on some otherwise perfect pistols. Do I like 'em? Nope.
