Besides my PT 1911 has been great, I've put about 16K round through it with out any failure to fire or failure to eject and with out any break in period, I've kept all the original fire controls and change out the springs about every 2500 round and under magnification all my MIM fire control parts look good, if it goes for another 10K rounds I'll be happy.

One Bad @ss gun



By the way if your unhappy with your PT 1911, I'll take it off your hands, I wouldn't want you to suffer any more. PM me
OMG, cant be true!

Glad to see that someone else isn't ashamed to give the Taurus 1911 the credit it deserves!

Byron, I don't need your validation. but like they say (you can drive a horse to water but you cant make him drink it).

I can buy two PT 1911 with forged frame, slide, and barrel, completely tricked out with all the bells and whistle one in 45acp and the other in 38 super for the price of some of the highly praised (add your own preference) 1911's, and the Taurus comes with a life time warranty, what else can you ask for.

And thats a fact.

Cuba

Hey man go wilson combat, they have the best quality parts and wont break.

Are you sure they wont break? Go to the Wilson or Les Bear forums and you'll find out that machined steel breaks the same as all things.

I think you are misunderstanding something pal. I have a PT 1911 too. Tired of hearing other on here bash them.

Bought my PT1911 used for $400.00, two years ago, the pistol had barely been shot. To date, I've put approximately 400 rounds through it, and have experienced zero FTFs, jams, etc. Very accurate, well made, and reliable. The only 'work' I've done to it is change the grips to Raasco grips. It's my fourth 1911, others are a Colt 1991a1 Compact, RIA GI, and a Desert Eagle 1911C.

Apologies to Ruzai. Your questions about the PT1911 degenerated into a pissin' contest between taurus owners. this forum is usually better than that, lots to learn. I enjoy shooting my PT1911, is very accurate. It never failed to fire, until it did. I believe the CS problem has more to do with Taurus Miami base, where rudeness and arrogance is a way of life. My wife and I quit our jobs in Sept. and fled back to the west coast of FL., it was that bad. I was born and raised in Lake Worth, it breaks my heart. Now, not a car horn to be heard.......

I hear that. I love my PT-1911, got it about 3 years ago. I had a little trouble with one of the thumb safety's right off the bat. Taurus sent a fed-ex ttruck to pic it up the next day. About 3 weeks later I got it back fixed, shiney, and a new set of grips on it (not sure why)! Great customer service, for me anyway. I'm sure they have pricks that work there too. That's just the luck of the draw.
