Got my new PT1911 on Tuesday and I love it!!! It's heavier than what I thought but it's still awesome!! I took some pictures of it but I believe you have to have X posts before you can post them right? Also can I post pics through my phone(iPhone)?

Hope to get to the range soon but it's too cold to shoot out. Would like to go this weekend!!! Got some Federal 230gr ball ammo ready to go. This is my first pistol I bought. Always wanted a 1911 and it's my first. So it's a nice addition to the armory.

PT1911 C4.JPG Welcome to the best gun forum on earth from Northern Illinois and another very satisfied PT1911 owner/operator. There is a load of information on your pistol here and the stickies have saved data on field and detail stripping and have a lot of the history of the forum as well as the guidelines.

You can post photos right away and we love to see firearm pics! I am not sure of the process on the I Phone though, I am thinking that you will need to save them to a PC and then browse/select file to upload to the thread.

Been on this site for about 6+ months. Then decided to join in Nov (says under my name). Anyway I learned a TON from this site. Already stripped it haha. But after readin all the haters and hate stories. I still decided to get it. Because best bag for the buck. I can't wait to go shoot it. Also my Federal M855 5.56NATO came today!!! Can't wait to shoot that stuff off. I was using PMC .223 before. So it's an upgrade for $20 more per case. Worth it. Now got to find some .45 ammo.

Grasshopper1911, congratulation and a wise decision, the PT 1911 does give you the most bang for your buck, what model did you get? and if you don't mind how much $, hope you got a good deal.

Now you have to remember that your new 1911 is like your first car you need to learn how to change the oil, change a tire, jump a dead battery and so forth in other word you own a machine that is mechanical and is force to function as it was design to, it doesn't have a choice they were built by hands back 100 years ago when all things were made by hand so if you have hands and any inhibition to learn how to work on your own equipment the 1911 is doable. The grips are not very fancy but they are of good quality they have an aggressive texture, thin and contoured like none others, most change them out right away, I did also, but my SS PT 1911 is sporting the stock grip now, glad I didn't throw them out. Your 1911 came with a full lenth guid rod which was not on the original design, the advantage that the FLGR has over the original is that you can remove your slide with out removing the barrel bushing just makes it faster and you avoid the probability the the spring plunger shots out and hit you in the face, Good Luck and Enjoy.

Welcome to the forum, But i just can't understand what all you people see in a 1911 pistol-LOL
Most all 1911 steel frames are about the same weigth , Taurus makes a Pt1911AL thats about 5-6 opunces lighter than the steel version if you can find one.
its the first picture!, the third picture is a stainless in 38 Super, another nice caliber if you reload.

Forgot the pics. But after looking it doesn't look like it's right. Or should I just go shoot the thing and see what happens? (I'd like to fix it and make it right if need be)
