Been awhile sine I posted here, but I have done some more stuff with El Toro...







Wolff spring tune up kit
Wilson Combat Extended Safety
Wilson Combat Extended Slide Stop
Colt Series 80 plunger (So I could install the wolff series 80 spring)
Ed Brown Hard Core Firing Pin
Fusion Ejector
Kimber Desert Warrior Style Grips
Slightly rounded edges for decreased holster wear
Bear Coat finish in Tactical Flat Black


Thousands of trouble free rounds so far, but I am considering doing the hammer/sear swap to drop the lock and hi-power cuts on the front of the slide.

My FIRST, but not last, PT1911. . . I love the way this feels in my hand.


Pretty amazing what a $5.00 piece of wood does for a guns looks!

Here is one more pic! This would be a great one to build custom, but it shoots fantastic the way it is!

No adjustments, but I have seen the medallions fall off of a couple of sets...

Bullhead grips

I have just purchased the PT1911 in blue. I would like to know where I could get the bullhead grips.

Thanks in advance!

Bought used, polished up and added a set of Hogue grips. Sweet shooter!

Not a very good picture, was too lazy to get my real camera out.

Raasco Indigo Dymondwood grips are the only change so far...

Fresh off the repair...press?

Taurus replaced the safety and grips...and I then replaced the grips again with some ebony ones from Raasco I liked the black of the originals, so I got the ebony which look better (no bull head), the color is deeper (if that makes any sense) and they grip so much it almost hurts

anyway without further blabbing:


That kinda came out looking like a professional picture, but I promise all I did was take a picture of it on a white sheet of paper in my bathroom

How was the CS to work with?

The reps were great. I was only ever on hold for very long the first time, and they were great with answering my annoying "how much longer?" questions. Once they got to the gun (which is why the wait is so long) they had it fixed and shipped back very quickly--they overnight it for free. The problem is the wait for yours to get up to bat after it's sent in. It seems like they're perpetually behind by a month.

However they said 4-6 weeks, and that's what it was...but closer to 6 than 4.

In short: the quality of service I thought was great, but you'll be waiting a while.

I don't plan on sending mine in. I've changed some internals, so I have my gunsmith do any work on it.

I was just curious because we hear lots of horror stories about their CS. It's good to hear some first-hand accounts of it, rather than the he said/she said crap.

It's good to hear it went well for ya!!

Well my comp came in. I know it doesn't really need one, but I like the way they look Haven't had a chance to fire it with the comp yet, but I'm hoping to hit the range this weekend and see if it is good or bad

Anything that keeps the muzzle down will help with shot follow ups. I'm thinking about one but it will take longer to clear the holster.

Changed grips on my PT1911 from wood to Hogue

I like this combination best on my PT 1911, it shoots very well is more controlable and just feels right. Accuraccy is top notch! Here is a pic. :
