Taurus 1911

I went to my LFS intent on buying the ATI i had my eye on. It was gone. But there was a Taurus for 25 bucks more.

I'm delighted so far, at about 100 rds in. Cool pistol. Great price.

A lot of people will say negative things about the Taurus PT1911's. I can honestly say that I've owned at least 5 of them and they have all been reliable.

My first 1911 was a used PT1911. Still have it and don't ever plan to sell it.

Enjoy your new pistol. Shoot it a lot!! Then get ready because 1911's have a tendency to breed in captivity. What is now 1 pistol can soon become 3 or 4 or 5!!

I have worked on many 1911's, many Taurus, they are not put together very well. everyone I have worked on have been a real cobble job the way they were fit inside.

I've worked on quite a few 1911s that were half burrs and machine marks inside and had to replace parts to make them work, that are claimed to be high end makes.

Just for the record, my Taurus 1911 has never had a problem, although I detest the useless Series 80 FP safety in it.

Owned? Past tense? If they're so good , why get rid of them?

Itís up to you but there is a shim you can buy that gets rid of the series 80 parts in the frame, then you only have to remove the saftey plug in the slide. I did mine and it was super easy.
