That is a beautiful pistol. At 53 ozs. how does it draw and track?
I have a 6" 1911 Les Baer (I don't know what it weighs) and it seems too slow on the draw and does not transition from target to target as well as a 5"' does for me. I really do like the sight radius for the precision shots. I thought I wanted a SVI 6" gun before I bought this one. I see why some of the Grand Masters have their longslides lightened. I may invest in that someday.

It draws and tracks fine for me. I shoot a 5" SV for USPSA limited and I don't really notice much of a difference. It does cycle a bit slower, but that's because it is only fed foo-foo Bianchi ammo.
I've considered lightening the slide up a bit to sharpen it up a hair, but it shoots fine now so why mess with it.
Benny Hill at Triangle Shooting Sports does what he call's a Fat Free 6" where the slide is machined down to the weight of a 5" slide. Everyone I know who owns one swears by them and by Benny's work.
