I will pass. I love RRA and think they make great products but this seem wrong. I wonder if the recoil will be softer in the Poly frame.
Edit from link
Then I put it to a side-by-side recoil comparison with a steel-frame 1911 weighing 38 ounces. Probably due to differences in weight distribution between the two, the Poly seemed to torque around a bit more, but recoil felt just a bit lighter. Several other gun club members were on the pistol range that day, so I asked two of them to shoot both guns with 230-grain hardball and then tell me if there was any difference in felt recoil. One declared no difference whatsoever, while the other picked the Poly as “slightly” more comfortable to shoot. Two out of three in favor of the poly-frame gun for comfort is not bad when we consider that the steel-frame gun outweighed it by a quarter of a pound.

not a bad idea I guess but the thicker grip would annoy me. I like a 1911 to feel super slim. I even bought slim grips for mine RRA Tactical.
Either way, its gonna be better then the Aluminum Kimber I had. That thing was jam city.
