Mine came with Novak sights. I had to do no adjusting.

I have owned mine for over 4 years .45 acp in SS and never had any issues at all and even if I did they have a lifetime warranty even if you buy one used!
It's very accurate and it eats whatever I feed it!

I bought mine shortly after they came out. I've put over 4000 rounds without any problems. Mine has been a fantastic gun for the money.

I've had a PT1911 for close to three years. Love to shoot it, keep it handy at home, no failures to date (mix ball & HP). I make no pretense of being a 1911 authority, but I'm pleased with the purchase and the limiting factor has been the owner, not the weapon.

I just tried taking the firing pin out of mine. The fire pin keeper plate will not budge. After using a brass punch & hammer I only managed to move it 1/16". I stopped trying I was afraid I'd damage it.

Does anyone know what I should do? I didn't see it hanging up on the extractor or any other part of the slide.

Are you pushing the firing pin down at the same time?

Yes, on this particular model being series 80 the firing pin actually locks forward away from the plate. There's no interference there.

if i am correct, on the series 80 firing pin safety system there is a plunger on the bottom of the slide. push it in and push the firing pin in. it has two steps on the the firing pin. you must push the firing pin in all the way while holding the plunger. at a certain point the plunger will actually hold the firing pin in position allowing you to remove the firing pin block and firng pin. if it still doesnt work, i think you tube has a video showing how to remove a series 80 firing pin. hope this helps
