Spiffy gun. Would be a cool addition when I can justify the price. It sounds like they plucked some of the best qualities from other guns, melded into a basic Glock style platform and poof - Zevtastic plastic fantastic. With the 1911 grip angle, how does it compare to the M&P, which shares the same grip angle?

Well, I’ve never put too much into grip angles. I mean, the Ruger MK series has a crazy extreme grip angle and a Kahr is almost 90 degrees. Yet nobody says anything about them. But Glock for some reason has a grip angle people like to complain about. That said, I shot the group in my first post from the first mag I ever put through it. And I have 10’s of thousands through Glocks. Some say tomato, I say pluck it. :D

I think grip angle can be easily overcome thru training, but there is such a thing as a natural point of aim. If you make a fist, point your index finger like its a gun, and bring it up to your eye - a gun that has a similar grip angle will probably tend to be on target and return to target with less effort than one with a radically different angle. That was demonstrated to me eons ago the first time I shot a qualification course back when I was doing security work. My instructor had me try a couple different guns - a Glock (mine), and a Sig (or maybe it was a Ruger - hammer fired double action is what I remember most) and with eyes closed, two handed grip, gun down range, he wiggled my hands in a circle, let go, and had me see where the natural resting point was. The Glock was a bit high on the target vs the Sig. Its a problem that can be solved with enough range time, but it could also be that once you're very experienced, or you're brand new - the angle of the dangle can aid or hinder success.
 
Good points. Get it? :s0140:

I'm going to get the RMR mounted today probably then I'll post a couple more photos of it broken down to show the modular frame. :cool:
