Ok, this is my first 1911 type pistola. PT1911 Stainless Steel. I think I understand all the controls etc. clearly, but what do I do with the trigger screw? The allen wrench supplied with the gun only fits the rear Heinie sight. So what's it do and how does it benefit me?

As I read per my owners manual for my new Para, it's the stop for the trigger. It say's in there pretty much not to touch it, so I won't haha.

It's a stop, it will rest against the mag release when the trigger's pulled. I guess it's to keep from over travel.

from what i understand its the over-travel screw. screw it out and your trigger can go further past the break point. screw in and it wont travel as far.

That makes sense. I knew it was for an adjustment of some sort. Thanks.

OK, here's what I got...

Thinkin' I may want to harvest my own rattlesnake and have some grips made from it, or something with my initials. Do pretty well with the Hienie sights, three dot sights are in my mind. I do want to personalize this one. :thumb:

Thanks. I might have bought the blue, but it had laser grips on it. Not interested.

Those are nice. :)

Although ... if Smoke were a real man, he would harvest your own snake with your bare hands and skin it alive. :D

Well I usually do harvest with bare hands, but skin 'em with my teeth. :drool:

Oh, yeah, are those from a grip company in Kentucky? Pretty much what I have in mind.
