Looks Good Congrats!!

you shoot it w/ the comp yet? let us know if it actually makes a difference?
I just got it/installed it tonight. I will hopefully find time to shoot it this weekend.
I will definitely keep you updated on how it performs.

I will say this. There is s NOTICEABLE weight difference with the comp. Definitely makes the gun front-heavy/heavier.

i've done some extensive research and i don't think the comp will do anything (except look friggin sweet) and isn't the 1911 heavy enough already?!

Well.. Mine will not do much, to tell the truth.
But higher end comps, I know, help a lot.
Comps such as: http://www.gunaccessories.com/1911/kings/CompKits.asp
i should have been more specific. i meant the muzzle breach compensators such as that one. the ones that are the size of the OD of the barrel. if the comp is matched with the ID of the barrel, (and screws on to the barrel itself and not repaces the front bushing) it shold serve a purpose. .45 is still only an 800fps round. it would help much more in say 9mm

Understood.
And that is correct.

thanks lost a lot when I had to convert it to JPG, and load it onto photobucket...

it is a sexy gun though isn't it:)
Indeed it is.


UPDATE!:
Today was the first time I shot my PT1911 with my new comp on it.
I must say, though I didn't think it recoiled much BEFORE.. There is a noticeable difference with the compensator. It may just be the extra weight from the block of stainless steel on the front of the barrel or it may be actually functioning.

Accuracy has increased a tad, as well. I shot a (4-shot) 1.5" group at 10 yards, which I am very pleased with. (I know, I know.. No pics = no proof..) I promise I'll keep my targets next outing. ;)

Just thought people would wanna know. :p

I'll add mine to the pics, just finished her up today w/ the Gun-Kote.







That looks damn nice - well done.
You should do a step-by-step write up on that. I'd be very interested in doing something similar when I get my Taurus. I was thinking more of getting a stainless and "accenting" it with OD on the trigger/slide lock/hammer/grips/etc.

Thanks :)

Here you go, I did a DIY on a local AZS sight... http://www.arizonashooting.com/v3/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=64706&st=0&sk=t&sd=a

Takes you through what I did... I used Gun-Kote from Brownells (aerosol rattle can type)

Was a fun project and took about 1/2 a day. I did the trigger / barrel / grip safety the following weekend.
