Talo exclusive is now mine

I couldn't resist this, I pick it up next week. It's a legal immigrant from South America.

Hang onto it. I hear those are pretty rare.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

That TALO might be news to TALO, because I dont think theyve ever commissioned a Taurus.

But, in keeping with my passion for 1911s, Id fur sure sport that one.

What is that in the top/back of the hammer? Looks like a screw or rivet?

That is the new hammer nipple safety switch to activate the hammer as it falls to strike the firing pin, you must keep the special key they supply to insert it and unlock the safety as you pull the trigger simultaneously. It's similar to those wind up toys in the early part of the last century. Just wind up the key and then shoot. Once the time allotted as the key winds down the safety reengages to prevent additional shots, you must wind it up again to use follow up shots.

Here is the actual instructions from the manual, and the required warnings of death, mayhem, and injuries if you use or don't use it, and if you misuse it, complete destruction of your 1911 will/may happen.

Well that's unique?
I can understand things like the S&W lock on their newer revolvers.
But on this you have to rewind it after a certain amount of shots, is that what you're saying?
How many rounds does it give you before you have to rewind/unlock it again?

You probably already know how corporate bobble heads think.... It's only going to last 7 rounds of an 8 round magazine, If you insert a 7 round magazine you'll only get 6 off before you have to wind it up. RLOL!

Is the Captain America shield included or sold separated?

I actually dig it, it is very well done. I might gold plate the control parts.

You would think they should have offered that. Or maybe a laser light that flashes red, white, and blue while it paints an American flag?

I just picked up a used Stainless in 38 super with that stupid hammer but figured I would be replacing the fire control parts anyway so why worry with it. Hammer, sear, MSH, slide stop and safety all getting replaces with tool steel. Haven't decided about the trigger till I get it taken down and get a good look at it.

Update, I have shot this a bunch and it's really a very sweet shooting 1911 that feeds and feels fantastic! I'm kind of surprised by this because I have many other tier 1 1911's that are 4 times the retail price of this one and they are no better or even somewhat less than this one. Who'd a thunk it?

Love it. The only thing I don't like about my standard Taurus 1911 is the grips are a little thin for me. Otherwise, it has been a consistent shooter through 500 rounds. Wonder if I could do that to mine with some Testor's model paint.
