I bought an unfired 2007 model about 3 months ago. Since have fired Georgia Arms ammo thru it, Federal, and Winchester ball 230gr . No problem with 300 rounds. The finish is a little weak though. I noticed that where the brass ejects and hits the top of the slide the finish is coming off a little, but hey its a shooter not a safe queen. I like the Heiney straight 8 sights as well. Dead on accurate at 15 yds. I know with some more practice I could reach out farther. This is my first 1911, and I plan on getting another soon. I want a Colt, but funds are tight. I recommend the PT1911. Jus my .02
P.S. I added some Rassco Dymond wood walnut grips with thumb relief for the mag. They are beautiful and fit perfect.
Liberals amuse me.
