How's the stock trigger on it? I presume you have been dry firing it like a mad man... LOL

I can't remember: Nightsights?
Stock trigger on a PC II is between 3.5 and 4.5, generally right at 4.0. Curious about the night sights too. 879 is about right for a night sight PC II (though I paid a LOT less for mine a couple years ago).

No night sights. The trigger is nice, breaks clean. I'll get used to the gun and then start playing with it I'm sure. I've got a couple of other projects in the making. I paid A LOT less too, reread the OP.

Very nice and welcome to the club. My first 1911 ruined me as no other gun just felt and operated so "right" for me. My only choice was to get more of them.

You'll enjoy the courtship with this one - I guarantee it...

You can't go wrong with a Pro Carry. Good purchase, and congrats. We are all looking forward to that range report.

Thanks guys! I had to spend the past couple nights working in the yard but I'm hoping tonight I can spend some time with it, clean it and learn how to break it down. Gernerally just familiarize myself with the weapon.

Oh I saw that about paying less. I was just saying 879 sounded like a normal price for a Pro Carry II. I got mine with NS for a LOT less than that so I figured you did too. W/o night sights the price you paid is still EXCELLENT!

GO SHOOT IT!!!!
