Comps such as: http://www.gunaccessories.com/1911/kings/CompKits.asp
i should have been more specific. i meant the muzzle breach compensators such as that one. the ones that are the size of the OD of the barrel. if the comp is matched with the ID of the barrel, (and screws on to the barrel itself and not repaces the front bushing) it shold serve a purpose. .45 is still only an 800fps round. it would help much more in say 9mm

Understood.
And that is correct.

Indeed it is.


UPDATE!:
Today was the first time I shot my PT1911 with my new comp on it.
I must say, though I didn't think it recoiled much BEFORE.. There is a noticeable difference with the compensator. It may just be the extra weight from the block of stainless steel on the front of the barrel or it may be actually functioning.

Accuracy has increased a tad, as well. I shot a (4-shot) 1.5" group at 10 yards, which I am very pleased with. (I know, I know.. No pics = no proof..) I promise I'll keep my targets next outing.

Just thought people would wanna know. :P

That looks damn nice - well done.
You should do a step-by-step write up on that. I'd be very interested in doing something similar when I get my Taurus. I was thinking more of getting a stainless and "accenting" it with OD on the trigger/slide lock/hammer/grips/etc.

Thanks

Here you go, I did a DIY on a local AZS sight... http://www.arizonashooting.com/v3/vi...st=0&sk=t&sd=a

Takes you through what I did... I used Gun-Kote from Brownells (aerosol rattle can type)

Was a fun project and took about 1/2 a day. I did the trigger / barrel / grip safety the following weekend.

New mods. I'm starting on a two tone. And my MSH is my first part in stainless. Going to do it gradual. The arched MSH is to help me keep the handle planted on recoil as I have large hands and have a tendancy to relax too much when I shoot.

Mods list: Nighthawk Custom Guide rod and plug, 17.5# Progressive Wolff recoil spring, wolf firing pin spring, John Masen Arched Main spring housing, Hogue grips, Chip McCormick Mags

Trijicon...

My PT-1911SS is headed to your house for a re-finish WOW that came out nice!!! I used to have a Dawson(similar to your front sight) front sight on my Glock 21c. Was very nice.

Awesome that you did all of that yourself. It looks very nice. I like the scheme.

Thanks guys

I just added a Wilson Speed Chute Magwell and I am currently fitting / polishing a new STI lightweight aluminum trigger... There was nothing wrong with the stock trigger, I just thought the STI looked cool...

Go here: http://www.brownells.com/aspx/ns/sto...20GUN%20FINISH

Read the instructions...Get the oven ready...

Prep / de-grease / Paint / bake / reassemble/ and then enjoy!!

If you know how to detail strip your 1911 you should be able to use this paint and make it look great! ... You would also have the self satisfaction that you did the job yourself and appreciate it that muvh more... I say GO FOR IT!

I like the Coyote color because it aint quite OD, but it aint quite Desert Tan, its kind of a mix between the two. The Aluma-hyde did cure a little thicker than I expected and make for an interesting reassembly. The good think about the finish is that it is very user friendly, if you mess up during painting just spray it with the TCE, let it dry and do it again. It is probably the easiest of the Brownells finishes.
