It beats the socks off all the Kimbers I've had, smokes my Colt hands down, and only looses out to the Baer on features.
That and it was my first "real" 1911 after owning several double stack Paras.
firstname.lastname@example.org. The local shop two blocks from my office had the exact same pistol for $660. The other shop in town charged me $25 to receive, so my net-out-the-door cost was exactly $110 more than my mil-spec Rock Island 1911. BTW - Bud's has the PT1911 (no night sights) for $505, shipping included. Even though my Rock has just undergone a face lift (trigger, combat hammer, beavertail, sights) I'm keeping my eyes open for a loaded Springfield as my next purchase - if I can find a good deal on one. That is, of course, after I help my eldest son buy his first pistol.
BE PREPARED - Noah didn't build the Ark when it was raining!

My PT1911 is a great shooter. It has earned the honor of being my current carry gun.
