My Taurus PT-1911 .45 works with any and all mags that I've stuck in it.
I had a Wilson hammer put on it just to get rid of the lock - the trigger pull was already really good.

The sight dovetails are a propriety cut which require Heinie or Novak Taurus-specific replacements (available via Brownells) unless you want to do extra milling, but I think the replacement Taurus-specific Heinie night sights are really good, so I'm happy with that too.

From what I've read, and from what my gunsmith tells me, there doesn't seem to be other Taurus-only parts that can't be replaced by a proper gunsmith. A kitchen table bubba might not be so lucky.
