New Taurus 9mm 1911

I fired 10 rounds and the ambidextrous safety came loose tightened it back with pliers 20 rounds later it came off in my hand lost plunger spring and detents. Ordered new Wilson Combat Tactical safety and plunger spring didn’t need new pins I’ll save them however also installed Hogue Rosewood laminate grips. WOW 50 rounds later perfect cycling and I love my Brazilian girlfriend!

Fortunately the safety came off so quickly it left no wear marks on right side

I’m new to forums but I want to give input since you all gave great advice on my problem. I could have sent it back to Taurus but I figured they would put it back like it was and I didn’t like the ambidextrous safety any way

Thanks... I've always had great luck with Taurus weapons, but the 1911 seems very iffy. Like you, I hate ambi safeties.

I haul asphalt and emulsion for Hwy paving and am very busy finally! I’ll be firing more rounds tomorrow and I’ll update my results. Today is Sunday and I was raised up to not shoot on the Lords day if not necessary. Also I don’t use chainsaws or lawnmowers on Sunday I think it’s a peaceful tradition. Also I’m staying with my 81 year old Dad at my sisters house in town and I won’t be home til dark. Showed my Dad my 1911 he loves it too. He’s a car mechanic and likes it’s heft and workmanship.

I bought a new Remington RP9 late last year and it has worked flawlessly for 350 rounds. I heard lots of bad reviews of the early models but mine seems to have had them fixed. I hope this Taurus 1911 is fixed for good as I plan on using it for my primary carry weapon. If not I’ll save up for a Wilson Combat or something comparable.

I had the pleasure to try a friend's new Taurus stainless PT1911 9mm. One lot of reloads were too light to cycle the action . The second lot functioned perfectly with the original mags, Brownell's 10 round mags, and Colt 9 round mags. We were easily hitting a 6inch steel disc at 25 metres. Only problem was that the original mags with the plastic followers could only take 8 rounds of 9mm.
I was impressed by the quality at the price point.

Fired 110 more rounds 160 total since I installed Wilson Combat Tactical Thumb safety flawlessly cycled. Even when I fired last 60 with the weapon dry. Only issue is the two Teflon coated mec-gar mags don’t actuate the slide lock. But it works perfectly with the Taurus issue Mec-Gar 9 round mag and a Wilson Combat 10 round mag I bought at local gun shop. Love it.
