I have had a PT 1911 for almost 2 years now, and no problems at all with it, it feeds any ammo I put in it, the only problems I had were mag related. Mine is the one without the rail. I have a few thousand rounds through it and I dont baby it. I would recomnd it. Just remember it's a taurus, so dont expect it to be like a colt or kimber. For what it is and what I payed for the gun, I am happy.
