    Did the custom shop do a slide melt?
    It looks like it has been smoothed over the length of the slide, very nice!
    And great color combo, don't forget to give us a range report. When you do, post a link to it on this thread so, we won't miss it.

    I'll be wait'n. :)

    My only dislike about the Taurus PT1911 is the grips they use. I shot one of the rentals at the range and the grips aren't the most comfortable. But you do get a lot of the features of more high-end guns at a better price.

    I don't like most grips that any manufacturer uses. It is usually the first thing I change:
