    PT1911 parts

    Sorry if asked before, but I could not find it.

    Are there any parts in the Taurus 1911's that are not interchangeable with parts used to manufacture other factory 1911's??

    if I am not mistaken there is a sticky on this very subject?
    off the top of my head I think the extractor is different, the Taurus safety system is not found on other 1911;s so the hammers would be different.
    the dovetails are different angle, so the sights.
    Most parts are typical improved MIL spec parts to my knowledge , which means, they will fit but must be fitted to the particular gun.
    I don;t change a lot on the Pt1911's but have changed out safeties, triggers etc with no problems.
    the internal components look pretty standard 1911.

    I took the complete slide off my colt rail gun and it sled perfectly onto my PT1911AL, I did not fire it but it seemed to fit tighter then the original slide.

    so you are saying that the Caspian extractor will fit and the Taurus series 80 safety system stays in place and works??
    thanks for the info.

    The safety system(i presume you are talking about the firing pin push button) is a bit finicky as it is not guaranteed to work on first press but will work after a few tries.

    HMM? so thats an absoulete positive "MAYBE" then?-LOL
    the down side (as i understand it) to using other manufactures extractors is that the series 80 safety parts(firing pin block) will not remain in the slide , they fall out.
    that was my question.
    In reality I personally order extra extractors for my taurus 1911;s and keep a couple on hand, so far none has broken an extractor and the Taurus extractors are cheaper than aftermarket extractors as well.
    I was just curious because that has been discuseed quite a bit here .
    many times getting the Taurus extractors is hit and miss.
    thanks for the info.
