    $150 later.

    Was having problems with the hammer dropping to half cock and a gritty trigger. The factory lockwork was shot so they fitted a Wilson Combat hammer and a colt sear. 4.5lb Trigger.

    PT1911. The first problem I have had with it. It was either send it back to Taurus or have the pro's do it.

    I suppose thats not too bad. Hows the accuracy for you?
    I tried out one at the range and I couldn't hit an elephant at 25 feet. But maybe that was because it was a range gun... :greddy:

    (Its not me, cuz using my SA:GI I have no problem hitting that elephant)
