    I'm planning to get a norinco 1911 factory enhanced, are there issues that i should know/consider before making this purchase?

    I also wanted to change the following on the pistol:
    1.slide stop
    2.trigger
    3.grips
    4.grip safety

    what parts would you recommend? where to have it installed?

    i'm leaning towards Ed brown, wilson combat parts, but would like to hear from other people's experiences first.

    thanks

    the sights, i cant see the sights:) i find them too small. and the thumb safety on mine does not seem to work properly. the grips too needs replacing, replaced mine with wooden grips. aside fom the above mentioned, its a good bargain. and accurate too.

    If you're in metro manila, north side try first option or PBD, south side try metrillo or col bayang.

    Try Febre Armory (formerly Aim Precision Works) along Kalayaan Ave in QC. It is run by knowledgeable individuals and they seem to know the innards and workings of 1911s. Judging from what I saw this afternoon, those guys are simply topnotch.

    The place's sign is still Aim Precision Works. It's located along Kalayaan avenue (from QC Circle). Coming from QC Circle, make a U-turn at a stoplight where there's a Jollibee to your right. After the U-turn, it's about 100 meters to your right, green gate.
