1911-A1 45 I bought this gun used. It's still tight no rattles but how do I make it more shooter friendly? Front sites are blade. Back sites are fixed. Trigger pull is a bear. Plastic grips. Not sure if it matters, but the serial number begins with NM. I do like the gun. Should I modify it or just leave it alone? I am on a fixed income but I do know you don't want to be on the wrong end of this gun. It's for home defense. It's a USA made Springfield.
I have the same gun, bought it a few months ago, used, at a gun show, $450 out the door. E-mailed Springfield, & gave them the serial #, they said it was made in 1990. It was my 1st 1911, but not my last.
I would recommend seeing how it personally feels to you when firing. If you dislike the feel and such modifying is of course your best option, but best to have a trial first. Otherwise, you may fix what ain't broke
