Makes sense. Good luck
How to change a Swan into Miss Piggy That so ugly I would sleep with light on.
My Wife said, when I bought a 45ACP MAC 10, "That's the ugliest gun I've ever seen".
I told her, "The beauty of a gun is not in it's form but in how well it functions".
I know personally that the RT rail functions just beautifully on the 1911.
Drilling the dust cover is a secure and solid way to mount a rail. Its also a modification that drastically destroys resale value. Seeing a drilled dust cover tells me the previous owner had no issue messing with anything they wanted to any extent. Knowing too many Bubbas, I pass on every one. That or they were a competition shooter and the pistol has probably seen more rounds than I could count in a year. Either way, any drilling is a huge red flag for me.
Now, I don't have a use for a rail personally. Its not a tool I use. If a rail is what you desire, you don't want to sell your current pistol, and you don't want to modify the pistol permanently I think this would be a great option and is rather moderately priced. Sounds like a good solution to the issue.
I've drilled holes in guns to mount rails for lasers and laser/lights, to increase their usefulness at night, but there won't be any holes drilled in my 1911 pistols.
I am very eager to buy the Beretta 92 grips!!!
