Seven©, welcome to the forum. Please post some more pic of that SS PT1911. I haven't seen one in person, and would like to see what it looks like. How does it shoot?

Here's my "new to me" PT1911. If this thing has had 50 rounds down range before I got it, I'd be very surprised. Still had packing grease around the safeties.
Anyway, I couldn't abide with the grips that came with it, so I whipped up a set of curly Makore's to put on it. Much better. :biglaugh:

You didn't like the stock grips? :tongue:

Did you have to do anything special for the ambi- safety? I had a set of grips cut for an ambi but still had to trim them a bit,I've read that others had to do the same.

I noticed that the arm on the ambi safety was a tad thicker than most and I just made the cut a little deeper that's all. Other than that, I didn't notice any problems. There were a few things with the Taurus specifically that were different than any other 1911's I've had or made grips for. The screw heads are a bit larger diameter than stock screws also, but luckily, standard screws fit the bushings, so I just dropped a set on this one. It wouldn't be a bid deal to make a larger screw head easement, but the screws on this one were marred anyway. Good riddance. Definitely a "specialty" grip to make though. You can't tell from the pic, but I also relieved a little on the left panel for access to the mag release button. I usually don't with my right hand, but figure I'd see what it looked like and how it worked. I kinda like it.

Nice grips :)

Those look great on blued / black gun!

Easiest way to deal with the safety fitting on different grips... I just shortened the tail by a bit with my dremel, problem solved :)

Had to have one
