For me, the 1911 no question. The Glocks have an angle that makes me feel as though I need to point my wrist down at an unnatural angle. The newer Glocks don't seem to be as bad as the older models, but its enough to keep it from having a higher place on my 'to buy' list than a Sig or anything else.

Not to nitpick, but the grip angle of the Glock is exactly the same as the 1911 (with a curved mainspring housing). I have both guns, and I have laid them on top of each other and the angle is the same. I understand what people are saying, the curved "hump" on the end of the glock grip is the culprit, but I have no problem with pointing either one. Guess its just me, but I hate when people say the grip angle is different.

Can't say I notice much of a difference either, I enjoy shooting both and seem to be as accurate with either one.

That may be, but I don't know any other way to explain it other than the grip angle. It just has a different feel to me, the older ones anyway. I've got a 1911 myself, and when I sold a different gun a few years ago it was either a Glock or a Beretta and the Beretta felt 'right' in my hands, and the Glock just felt off.


It's personal preference, no doubt...but even shooting my brother in laws Glock it feels 'off' to me because I have to bend my wrist further down than I do with anything else.

I wish it wasn't that way because their reputation is second to none, but it is.

I voted 1911 but have only handled a Glock once so I guess Im not the best judge of this. the Glock just felt off if that makes sense.

I voted 1911 not because the grip angle is any better, but because the 1911 is a thinner grip amd fits my little girly hands much better.

Why use the hammer? We can just use the all steel construction of our 1911's
