I agree. I am still runnin the stock extractor, slide stop, and thumb safety. all MIM and all still runnin strong.
The trigger is a Fine ARTillery (http://fineartillery.com/
) piece and the grips are Hogue scrimshaw reaper grips.
First thing I replaced was that retarded Taurus locking hammer. I hate em, plus they are ugly. With that got a new sear, disconnector, (all from wilson) and 4 finger sear spring from clark. trigger pull is a creepless 2 pounds.
Some time back I fit an Ed Brown match barrel and bushing to it and keep it with fresh wolff springs. Other than that its still Taurus. Shoots pretty dang good too.
