I did have to drift the front sight to center it. I have no idea why it was off center out of the box.

For a holster, I have an old 1911 army holster that slings over the sholder, and you can carry it under your arm, or out in front. That was the holster i had in the army, as we had the 1911 for a side arm when I was in.

Happy shooting!
Yes it is a very good price! I just got to shoot it today finally and wow that trigger is so smooth I love it! I wasn't as accurate with it as I expected first time out but not getting down till I shoot it more and get use to it!

Last one I had was stainless and it was 550. That's been a few years ago. Had bought a blued one for a frfiend as a gift and it was 500..Also a few years ago.
..So yeah, you got a good price.

They are pretty nice pistols. Especially for the price. I don't care for the plastic grips but truth be told I dislike most factory grips so it's nothing to look down on the pistol for.

The stainless one I had I literally shot the crap out of it. I would not cleanit for a long period of time to see when it would start to screw up. And, it always did really well. Well, till about 700 rounds then it would start getting a little squirrelly. That was dependent on he ammo though. Winchester bulk was more dirty than some of my target reloads. With my stuff I could get to 1K rounds without a problem. Even then it was a quick pull with a bore snake and a little oil on the rails and off I'd go again. My reason for doing it was the bad stories I kept hearing so I wanted to see just how much I could abuse it nad it still work right. On the downside it was a real chore to clean it after all that

The only problem I sen out of any PT1911 was the ambi safety on a few I had seen tried to work out over time. Put a good tap on them to set them again and they didn't do it a second time. So I figured maybe some of them where not set up good at the start. If that's the worst I would have to deal with I still would have no trouble buying another one.

This maybe a dumb question but is there any way to get bigger 3 dot sights when I get to zoning in at like 30 yards they look like little bitty freckles

First priority is to be able to see the sights, for me anyway.

Mine is a bit loose on the right side, not bad, just annoying really, I plan on swapping it out eventually.
