Like him or hate him. Nutnfancy gave the Taurus 1911 very high marks and said it could hold its own against most 1911s after the extensive testing he puts his stuff through.

Had a .38 super from them. Needed some cleaning and gun smithing to clean up some parts with burs on them. I loved the gun but decided to go with a 9mm for single stack competitions next year.

No I went with the smith pro series. My buddy has the 9mm 1911 by Taurus and you can't beat it for the money!

Unbelievable fit, finish, and features, for under $650, in my case Heine sights and under $549, indestructible mim fire controls, over 18K round and no visible excessive wear, mine had the faulty thumb safety and Taurus sent me a good one within a 5 day span, recently Taurus replaced my magazines no questions asked, stellar customer service.

Don't do 9mm the smallest I'll go is 38 super, but I've heard from the members @ Taurus Armed.net, they are just as fine as the 45 acp models, the most feature laden 1911 you can get for your money

shoot safe, shoot straight, and have fun

Had one, like it but the trigger pull was sometimes really stiff so I had all the extra parts ( series 80) stuff removed and it made to a series 70 and a trigger job done. It shoots great however I sold it to my older brother last week because he wanted a 1911 45 acp but didn't want to drop a grand on one. He's really happy with it. It's a great shooting pistol.

I came into a used one awhile back. Fit and finish were fine and it hadn't seen a ton of rounds, so I made a project gun out of it.

I dumped the Taurus hollow safety hammer and the ambi safety for a traditional all steel version of each. Single side for the safety. Did a trigger job and it ran like a champ.

Benning has it now and carries it daily. He probably has 2,000-3,000 rounds through it and no reported problems.

All in all I think they are a great 1911 for the money and Taurus has a true lifetime guarantee no matter who owns the weapon.
