OH CRAP TAURUS!!! How have your experiences been. I know nothing about them first hand. I own a ruger p95 and sr9c, and also a saiga ak. I seem to gravitate towards a taurus, I have no problems with a polymer framed 45.

The onlt taurus that I ever had a problem with was a .25. I have 4 taurus now pt101-40,pt740slim,pt609-9mm,pt24/7pro-.45. Never had a problem with any of these, even with cheap ammo or the good stuff no ftf's or fte's they have been very solid in there performance.But I do keep them clean and oiled. I think that is the key to any gun.

Ruger P90 is the way to go, and seems to be a popular answer to your question. i have had mine for about 5 years and it is still onr of my faves. accurate, reliable, and a great price. you can't go wrong with this brick of a .45

I have quite a few.45's, and haven't seen any comments on this post yet about the Beretta Cougar .45's, so add that one into the mix. There made by Stoeger now, but I have two of the Cougars, one in .45 and on in 9mm, and there both great shooting, reliable guns. I did a quick check on GB and see one listed new for $ 449.

I have both Taurus and RIA. I love them both. I've had the PT92AFS for almost 20 years, and it's still rock solid reliable.

The RIA is a more recent purchase, but so far, I don't regret getting it either.





And as you can tell, I like my guns shiny.

Have been looking at the stoeger and have read several articles about them, that may very well be my next purchase. I have also looked at the American Tactical 1911 but I really drawn to the stoeger.

Just an FYI, Stoeger doesn't "make" the Cougar. It's made by a firm in Turkey. Stoegar is the importer.

Just my two cents worth, but if it was me, I'd spend a $100 more and buy a Springfield.....

let me recommend you the Regent 1911 made by umarex,i bought mine last week from my local academy sport store for $450. It works flawlessly even with my 15 rd promag magazines,not a single hiccup,i already shot 600 rounds through it and not a single jam..This is my first 1911 and so far im so happy with it since its as accurate as my dads expensive colt mark iv govt 1911..theres several reviews out there on google,i recommend you search for them and all your going to see are positive reviews..In no way,shape,form or manner i am comparing the Regent 1911 to other high class 1911s,im just saying its a great bang for the buck,and the Regent 1911 is made to shoot JHP bullets without any modifications needed on your part.Im not a gun expert but the Regent 1911 comes with a lowered ejection port,and i polished feed ramp so you can feed those jhp easily with no problems..and i forgot to mention is made out of Steel so its a very solid 1911 despite its very cheap..
