Sig will most likely be my next 1911. All this RIA talk has me interested in one of those too.

Thanks, Cuba, I'm writing that down. The reason I had called them was that they had the pistol for over a month, and no word from them. I'm good with smithies taking their time, but a mfg. with a backlog of repairs is worrisome. Thanks for the tip.

You'll get more bag for your buck, going with the SS PT 1911, especially when Springfield gets their forged slides, and forged frames from Taurus Forjas
also their barrels are of the two piece type, they are only engraved and assembled in the USA.

The forging isnt my concern, its the finished machining and the fact the Springfrield comes with all the goodies and its a series 70, not an 80 like the PT1911.

I literally just got off of the phone with Taurus customer service. The first call I made was answered by a young woman who was very helpful at first, then she told me the part I needed was a restricted part. I'm not sure why a stock part on a 1911 would be a restricted part but whatever. I just said thanks for your time and got off the phone.

The second call I made was answered by a male I would guess to be in his 30-40s. He told me he would send me the part I needed before I ever told him what part I needed. He looked the part up for me (Firing Pin Key Block Spring) and told me it would be shipped out today or tomorrow.

For all of those that have had bad experiences with Taurus customer service, my advice is call back until you get a representative that actually cares enough to do their job correctly. Once you get on the line with somebody who is willing to help, their customer service is great.
