Got my hands on two PT1911s (.45 and 9mm) ....
From a friend of mine. They suffered a minor water hazard and I'm going to clean them up a little.
Initially all I can say is that the triggers are amongst the most squishy I've ever felt, but who knows what the insides of these guns look like.
More pictures and thoughts/findings to follow.
They "suffered a minor water hazard" and you want to know why their "triggers are...squishy"?
No offense....but, they don't work too well with out a minor water hazard, do they?
None taken, they aren't my guns.

...Or Jello? (Gelatin is wetter than Double-Bubble.)

(I apologize if I seem to be teaching my grandma to suck eggs. You probably know all this already, but I'm just making sure.)
No worries, I don't know what level I'm willing to go on these past just cleaning and some minor parts replacement and a little work on the trigger track/bow, might take a little polish to the safety...not sure yet. One thing's for sure, they sure don't know how to blend an edge @ Taurus, damn near cut myself on the rear of the frame...
