I think you would have to take case by case, can you be more specific ?
I believe for instance, if you were to blend your frame to an aftermarket grip safeties spec, and then later on the frame was to crack toward the trigger guard it would be determined that the blending did not cause the breakage but poor manufacturing and in that case the frame would be warrantied, but if you have undercut the bottom of the trigger guard, then it would be a different story and I'm sure that they probably won't warranty the frame, but would dim that it was the modification of the frame that caused the failure.
Taurus will usually go over and above their responsibility to accommodate a customer, it is not beyond them to go the extra mile, there was a post on 1911 forum where a customer sent his PT1911 to have the extractor repaired and he expressed the desire to have an extra extractor just in case, and to his surprise when the PT1911 was returned they had included the extra extractor at no extra cost.
Stellar customer service regardless what some in the long past have experienced.
shoot safe, shoot straight, and have fun
