Taurus PT 1911 questions

i looked at a stainless PT1911 today at the gunshow. i liked what i saw. i do have a couple of questions though..........


#1, do they fire with no magazine in the gun like a standard 1911A1? (couldn't dryfire the gun at the show and i just want to check, cause some of today's semiauto pistols won't)

#2, do they breakdown like a standard 1911A1?

Yes and yes. They probably had the ILS in hammer on, that would explain why you couldn't dry fire it.

thats bs, how are you supposed to inspect the gun?? i assume it was zip-tied in a way that you can't rack the gun?

I may buy a new gun like that, but never a used gun.

The Taurus 1911's are series 80. Just thought I would give you a heads up on that. Though I have never had a problem with mine, some people don't like it.

All the gun shows I've been to in the last 15 years require the guns to be zip-tied for safety reasons. If you are seriously looking, they will generally un zip it so you can examine it. Then they re zip it before putting it back on display.

I don't buy a new one until I have inspected it, much less a used one.

Thats interesting, I've only been to one in MN quite a while ago, and there was no such thing. I need to go again, soon and see whats up. Thanks

Edit: I saw this on the firing line:

Most of the gunshows here in MN, the majority of the booths have security wire running through their guns, or have locks on them, or in locked display cases.
I've never been to one in the cities, but it seems like its up the the booth vendor here.

Yea, mine was for the first 15 minutes I owned it. You will be surprised with the improved trigger pull if you "forget" to reinstall the plunger and spring next time you clean it.
