Sounds like you might be having an issue with the Grip Safety and the way that you are gripping your PT1911. You might consider gluing a 1/8 inch thick Black Neoprene pad to the back of the grip Safety if this condition persists. Did that with a Para-Ordnance Double Stack Magazined 1911 I had grip safety issues with. Cured that problem! I don't have Grip Safety issues with Single Stack 1911's.
