new 1911 Taurus

Being an 1911 follower, I have many 1911's, I was hesitant about the 1911 Taurus I purchased at a pawn shop. The pistol is VERY accurate, with my handholds. less than 2" at 25 yds shooting offhand. I have 4 9mm 1911's and more than 6 in 45 apc. No complaints, the pistol will make a nice carry pistol or truck pistol. If I loose it, $350 down the drain. No sweat.

Just ordered a Taurus 1911 Duo Tone. It is a very good looking pistol. I have owned quite a few Tauri. Some revolvers, some PT92's, which I love, & lastly a PT111 that I shot once & immediately sold. I am hoping this 1911 will be a good choice.

The Heinie "8" sights will be new to me. Don't know what to expect from them.

Picked up the DT the other day. Pleased with it overall. It did come with regular 3 dot sights. Haven't had any time to shoot it yet, but will real soon.

I must say it was THE dirtiest gun I've ever bought. Taurus assembly area must be really filthy. The fit & finish is up there with more expensive models I have / had. Has a FLGR. Came with a bushing wrench but was pleasantly surprised that it came apart easily without it.

While it isn't the Springfield I want, for now this one will do.

Taurus

I've had very good luck with Taurus 1911's and have owned 6 to date (maybe 7?). I currently have 2 of them. One is the first 1911 I ever bought and the pistol that introduced me to this "platform". I don't expect to ever sell that one. Just for sentimental reasons.

And it has the Heinie Straight-8 sights on it. Really like them.

Range report is pretty dismal. The gun ran like a top, but I couldn't hit the barn door if it was closed. Got it home & while cleaning it I found the problem. The stupid set screw on the rear sight was loose. At first I thought it was missing, but dug through my allen wrenches & found one small enough to fit. Used my bore sighter to line it up. Next trip it was shooting low & left. Moved the front over just a tad & raised my sight picture a little & it started to hit good.

It is a nice looking gun, fit & finish is pretty good for a +$500 1911. No other issues so far. I like the gun & hope it works out.

Ran a bunch of different ammo through different mags & it ate all I could afford to feed it.

Think I'll keep this one.

Wasn't very impressed with the OEM grips, replaced them with some G10's I picked up on FleaBay
