New PT1911 Owner




I have a PT1911SS on the way. Quick question, does changing parts void the warranty?

It is not supposed to unless they can show that what you changes caused the warranty issue. Sort of depends on the company and I've never dealt with Taurus.

If you have to send it in put the stock parts back in.

If you're going to put aftermarket parts in it, I don't see why you're concerned. If something fails or malfunctions, take it to a smith and have better aftermarket goodies put back in it. JMHO

taurus is really good with their warrantees i own a Pt1911AF. if something mucks up. throw the stock parts back in. even if it mucks up in 40 years. they will still fix it for free. throw it at your truck. theyll fix the gun, set it on fire....theyll fix it. say they wont cover grips or sights. lies lol they will :-) good brand ;-)

Shoot the gun for 500 rounds with a ball type ammo (Winchester white box, etc) before you worry about swapping parts. Clean it and lube it before you shoot it. It should have a ton of crap in it. After you get used to the gun you can figure out if it "needs" any aftermarket parts.

Taurus Repair going downhill again

I had heard they were getting better with their warranties, so i decided to pick up the PT1911 against the advice of some of other Taurus owners. Sure enough within 2 days of owning the pistol the hammer would not lock back, and there was a serious gash where the slide meets the frame because taurus had mounted it on at an angle.

THey have now had my weapon for over 5 weeks and they still have not even started working on it. I have called several times to speak to a supervisor, and no one ever calls me back. A life time warranty means very little if they just store your gun shaped paperweight in their warehouse for a couple months. I will never buy taurus again.
