    How MIL spec are these 1911's?

    Hi all.

    I will state plainly that I have not had a chance to hold one of these fine looking 45's as of yet, just seen the pictures. They seem to be well built with many of the upgrades most want in a 45.

    The question I have is how interchangeable are they with 1911 mill spec parts?
    I have a hand injury (I broke my hand, and dislocated the bode for my pinky) It heeled up wrong, but I am stuck with it, it was 35 years back and all.
    The flat back spring housings just don't work for me, I need to change them to the 1911A1 curved ones.
    I have done this to other 1911's, and those housings are very easy to come by, I just want to know if the Taurus 1911 will take that part, or are they different?

    Nope... It should slide right in with minimal to no fitting required at all. I have seen many PT-1911's with aftermarket curved MSH's... What are you waiting for you need to get out there and hold / fondle / shoot one of these beauties!!

    I bought a SS mag well with a (flat) main spring housing, one from Fusion firearms, but i had a problem with it. I cannot install it because it's too short of about one poor millimeter. Maybe it's the shape of the cut on its top, but event when i lock it with the housing pin, it doesn't stop the bottom of my beavertail grip safety who can go out of the frame.

    I don't need a magwell, just a curved spring housing.

    Yes, i understood, but guess that all spring housings from Fusion have the same problem.
