I always liked the pin covered since that little cut out is noticeable to me. The ambis' require at least one grip panel be removed anyway, so I remove both when playing around inside.
As well, I use hex-head grip screws, so I can't take the screws off with the sear spring anyway.
Just curious why you (and others) dislike the pin covered?

Thanks.

If you can detail strip the gun without the wear and tear on the grips and the time, why not?
Sure, but like I said, with my ambi's, I still need to remove the right hand grip panel. For me, it's just a matter of comfort, since I also have them on the gun I don't have ambi's on yet.

Aesthetics wise, I don't have a preference. However, on smaller framed 1911's like the Officers model, I find that grips without the pin hole cover dig into my palm in just the wrong spot and in the wrong way. On the smaller frames I definitely prefer grips with the pin hold covering.
