    i would like views on this gun good and bad as i have a chance to buy on stainless fired 30 times which i witnessed and the man is just scaling down cause he has a lot of hi grade guns, gun was accurate but i like others have heard a lot of horror stories about customer service .the gun would just be target and bedside.... thanks Bill:)

    Its stock ambidextrious safety has always been nice for me as im a southpaw. Only complaint is that you have to apply a bit more pressure to the grip safety than i like

    I like them. I've bought two over the years and had no issue with them at all.

    Great guns really. We have them for $499. Customer service for taurus is excellent and lifetime. Ever experience a problem, it will be taken care of.

    My first 1911. So far I'm 500 rounds in and I've had no problems what so ever. It's been a dream to shoot!!

    I've had one of the Aluminum framed models for 4 or 5 years, the factory mags are junk but the pistol itself is solid.

    I had a lot of issues when it was new, but since the 500 round break in period I haven't had any at all.

    IMHO best 1911 for the price, excellent accuracy right out of the
    Box, almost 600 rounds never a problem ...you really get the bang
    For your buck with this one ......

    Have a couple friends wiht them. They seem to be happy with them. One didn't like Gold Dot ammo, but seems to feed most anything else he has tried. The other one had a Slide/stop issue. (It extended a bit far into the gun and would get hit buy rounds in the mag and want to lock the slide. I fittted it for him, it's been trouble free ever since.)

    The top one in the picture is my PT1911. I've had it for 2 1/2 years, lots of rounds from cheap round nose to higher end home defense with no worries. I have read hundreds of posts on multiple boards criticizing Taurus products, but I have been completely satisfied with mine. I presume that people have some basis for the negative comments, but my experience doesn't support any negative reviews. I ignore the, "It's unadulterated crap if it's not (fill in the blank with the author's favorite brand here)" type of comments. I think the majority of positive reviews come from owners and the negative tend to run in the "I heard from a friend of an in-law that knew for a fact...". You get the idea.

    Spend what money you have wisely, take care of what you've got, and ignore the people that believe that we all should just wise up and be more like them.

    The PT1911 was my second handgun & my first 1911 it was purchased in 2007 from a cop who had put 200 rounds through it. I can't speak on Taurus customer service because over the thousands of rounds & all the times I've carried w/ it the gun has never given failed me. Only had 2 jams w/ the gun once because the factory mag spring was twisted inside the mag so I only carry w/ Wilson combat mags. Second time I had failed to fully seat a mag yep rookie mistake in my rookie days (not like I'm a pro now anyway). This gun is my baby she was defiantly worth the money.

    I owned the all steel version with the rail. The gun functioned great but the rail dimensions are different than pretty much all other manufactures so getting a good holster for it was next to impossible. I ended up trading it for a m&p 45c. I bought my dad the aluminum frame pt1911 with the walnut slabs for his birthday in 2011. He and I both love shooting the gun. one nice thing about the Taurus 1911's is that they aren't as ammo sensitive as some of the higher end 1911s. I have fed everything from ball to lead swc handloads through both guns without a hiccup. IMO Taurus makes a fantastic 1911 for the money. I have come to the conclusion that any Taurus that is a copy of another companies design is usually a solid gun. I know that their beretta 92 clones get great reviews and all of their wheel guns that I have owned are well made.

    I bought one when they first came out. The only problem I have had is I put too much oil at one time and it caused the safety to work loose. Just reseat it with a small hammer. The gun otherwise has been awesome. Great trigger and accurate. No malfunctions with feeding any type of hollow point ammo, and I have fired some hot Buffalo Bore ammo with no issues. I have been very pleased with this gun and never plan on selling it.
