Those grips on the newer PT1911's are so awesome looking.
I felt a pair in my hand this past weekend and I love 'em!

They're great - extremely comfortable and very unique looking. I'd like to get a more "tactical" set of grips as well though. The stock black grips with the Taurus do the pistol no justice.

Agreed!
I will be ordering my "Punisher" grips soon to complete my Punisher replica/copy!

Tweaking 1911s is damn fun, wouldn't you say? I've got about a dozen mods in mind I plan on doing here within the next couple months.

I usually find the railed PT1911 to be somewhat awkward looking, but yours isn't bad at all. It must be the extreme contrast the grips give it. All in all, that's a mean lookin' pistol friend.

That is one beautiful pistol. I am especially interested in the front sights. Can you tell me where to get them? What the heck, the rear sights, too!

My PT1911 AR

Hi guys, nice PT1911's you all have. Thought I'd post up some picks of my stainless PT1911 AR. I'm not done customizing it yet, but I have a few things done.

I did some work polishing certain parts on the pistol (all the MIM parts, the bottom front of the slide, and in between all the grooves on the slide), here's what it looked like before-

and this is after-


Here's the gun after I put on a green laser sight and a compensator-


The rest of these were taken for fun, trying to make some gun porn. lol






Ok, the laser beam is not THIS visible, I just sprayed some air freshener to make a mist so it would be it easier for the camera to see it. The beam is actually visible without any mist, it just didn't capture well on camera.




(without mist)


I'm waiting on a pair of the pachmayr american legend wood/rubber grips I ordered, and I plan to replace the slide catch and ambi safety with stainless steel ones. I may even get some black tactical grips, I sorta like the look black grips give my pistol. Also gonna get a tac light, a wilson combat stainless mag well, and some wilson combat mags when I can.

Damn nice gear, Yadao!
Did you brush that stainless? I'm confused as to which you did.
(Polishing or brushing?)

Nice comp.
I love mine.

Thanks

I sanded it with progressively finer grit sand papers and finished with a buffing wheel and some polishing solution. So it has a really shiny brushed look to it. It took me almost half a day to do all the slide serrations since
I had to tape off each one, sand it, polish it, then remove the tape and move to the next one. I did the same thing to the compensator, when I got it it had some ugly mill marks. I sanded them out, polished it, and now it looks really nice.

Got my new grips. I love how they look, they each give the gun a different look/style to it. Both make the pistol very comfortable. Which pair I use will depend on my mood I guess. lol

My usually broken PT 1911. When I can shoot it it's faultless.
Until something falls off.
