    Don't mean to interrupt here but....

    The more I shoot my PT1911, the more I love it. (And I also have a Springfield XDM and a Walther PPQ in 45 acp.) I love it just a tad less than my Colt Seventy Series Gold Cup National Match. Just sayin'.

    I love the way the 1911 looks; I love the way it feels; I love the way it shoots.
    I HATE the way it breaks down!
    I can't imagine being a GI on a hot, sandy south pacific island, or a snowy, freezing german forest, and having to break down a 1911 down to clean.

    I've watched a good gunsmith pick up a 1911 and in mere seconds it was all apart. It went together almost as fast. Practice, practice, practice. Oh, and if your life depends on it, practice even more.

    I don't find my PT1911 difficult to break down. Maybe because I've done it countless times. I really like mine too, and when I shoot with some guys that are very good shooters, mine goes with me. It makes me look good.

    yea , its not magic to me!
    course I have taken either 2 or wait I think I have taken three of them apart!
    never timed myself but would imagine its under 10 seconds disassembly and likely under 20 second re assembly?
    I mean drop the mag, turn the bushing and release the spring pressure, push the slide back, remove the take down pin and push the slide off, pull the bushing off and push the barrel through?

    My 1911 is one of my favorite and best shooting. The design still remains supreme.

    yea, it is a classic design for sure!
    got in touch with my younger inner me today as I took one of my 1911 to the range.
    I have moved toward the CZ and Tanfoglio in recent times but still have a soft spot for the 1911, heck I own like 14-15 of them I think?
    MY Springfield Armory Range Officer is like about my 3-4 th most accurate weapon and the best of the 1911 crowd.

    My PT 1911 SS was my 1st pistol, second handgun after my Dan Wesson Model 15 not counting my CVA Colt Navy replica that I built. Just thinking about it makes me want to get it to the range for a workout!

    I've been wondering about the PT1911 and this looks like a good thread to ask the question that has been on my mind.
    Are they parts-compatible with other 1911's? Specifically a mil-spec/Gi 1911?
    I've seen statements that they are and contradictory statements that they aren't.
    So who better to ask than a bunch of guys who own them right here on TaurusArmed.net?
