I'm thinking of getting the Legend grips that are Rosewood with the finger groove built on. I think that'd really set the gun off, a nice set of wood grips. This is the cheapest I've found yet:

Pachmayr Legend Rosewood grips @ The Sportsman's Guide.

The Taurus PT-1911 is based off of the Colt Series 80 pistol, meaning it has an Ambidextrous safety and the other same features as the Series 80 plus the following.

The Taurus PT1911 is a clone of the US Military model 1911 single-action recoil operated semi-automatic pistol. It was designed and manufactured by Taurus in Porto Alegre Brazil, and distributed in the US by Taurus USA. Announced at the 2005 Shot Show, it was released to the consumer market in the fall of 2005.

The PT1911 differs from its many competitors in the 1911-style market in that the basic model offers a package of features found on top-end models from more expensive semi-custom pistol manufacturers such as Springfield Armory, Para-Ordnance, and Kimber Manufacturing at a significantly lower cost.

Featuring a forged steel frame, the PT1911 was originally marketed with a blued carbon steel finish, but as of late 2007 a stainless steel version was released. The standard PT1911 is hand-fit in the Taurus factory and includes popular combat and competition custom features such as a "Beavertail" grip safety with memory groove, extended ambidextrous thumb safety and slide stop controls, lowered and flared ejection port, frame checkering, and other niceties unusual for a pistol of its price range.

Doesn't matter IMO if it's fancy or not, no need for a fancy gun in a gun fight, need practicality.

I want a Rock Island Armory GI 1911, less than $400 and looks just like a 1911-A1 with the same features.

I can't afford Colt's, else I'd have one, maybe later on in life when I have money.

I'll be shooting an S.A. hopefully when I go hog hunting later this month. Taking my 1911 out there so uncle can shoot it and see what he thinks.
