    Wink New mouth to feed

    Hi Y'all...

    Went to the Raleigh gunshow this past weekend and somehow a new member of the family followed me home It was a gorgeous little Taurus PT1911. Just when I thought everything was stable (no more holsters, extra mags, etc.), up pops another. The last holster (Brigade M11) I had on order shows up on the doorstep yesterday. Now I have to start all over again Whether or not to get leather or kydex, IWB or OWB. Decisions...decisions, Oh woe is me...

    ranger,

    No sir, its blued w/ wood grips (the black grips were included also) and no light rail. But other than that...its loaded. Ambi safety, beavertail, vented trigger/hammer. No night sights, but I'll change that before too long. What type of holster(s) do you use for it?

    Very nice. Congratulations on the new arrival. I thinking of getting the Taurus PT-745 Compact Millennium Pro.

    Nice pick. I've had mine (black grips) for about ten months. So far, with about 10,000 rounds through it I'm happy to say things are spot on! The gun shot a bit left at first, but I dry-fired it LOTS and was patient with things. It is now as accurate as any of my other 1911s. Congrats!

    God did say "Go Forth and Procreate!" I am happy for you that your gun family is following orders.

    Those PT1911's are just screaming at me to get one and send it to a custom shop to see what happens.

    I can never go to a gun show without "adopting" a new gun myself. I'm actually looking at getting one of these babies next

    Congrats. I have a PT1911 myself and I must say they are awesome pistols for the money. I carry mine in a blade-tech IWB holster.

    Has anyone had probs with the mag feeding w/ 8 rds in it? I bought some Ranger SXT's for it, but it won't feed if mag is at compacity. No prob w/ 7 rds. Its feeds FMJ w/ no problems w/ a full mag.

    Mine doesn't like the 7-rd mags! Can't be anything do to with capacity, though. I think quality mags always make the difference. Have you tried a Wilson 8-rounder? The two mags that come with the gun aren't so hot (IMO)
