I went to the range the other day with my new PT1911. 250 rnd only 2 FTF's, one nose dive and one half chamber feed(cartridge jamed about halfway in chamber). Simple tap cleared the jams. This gun can shoot better than I can. After about the first 100 rnds, I had no problem taking out the 10 on the target at 25 feet. At 25 yards my eyes give me a disadvantage against the 10 but I can still get nice groups. Best $500 I have spent lately. I may sell my M&P45 and XD40 to get 2 more of these. This is my first experience with a 1911 and I am impressed, I wish I had bought this one first. I have polished the hammer, safety, bevertail, trigger, mag release, and take down lever. I like how easy this gun is to take down for cleaning.

I have pics of the targets and gun if anyone is interested.

I would love to see pics of the gun with the polished bits and pieces. I'm thinking about polishing my trigger and maybe hammer.

And here is the pic of the last target I shot. The left side is the taurus (8 shot group). The right side is the M&P (10 shot group). Both at 25 feet. The Taurus has ruined my shooting skill with the M&P.

Not bad, I took a look at your pic in 'show us your taurus', But could not really make out the details of your modifications to the 1911, could you post some pics with more detail of the items you listed as polished?

"polished the hammer, safety, bevertail, trigger, mag release, and take down lever"

Nice groupings, you chewed the targets up with your PT1911. Still debating getting one or two more soon?
:D

locknload,
Nice looking mods from what I can tell. Like you I picked Taurus for my first 1911 and love it. Looks like you figured out how to hit with it. Congrats. It will probably get fewer problems with a few more rounds. Mine seems to do better every time I take it out.
