Customer Reviews 6 Customer Reviews Average 4.2 out of 5 Lance I For those of us that view 1911's as an unhealthy addition, this gun presents an almost irresistible curiosity. Having recently paid close to $200 to have 30LPI front strap checkering hand-cut on one of my Kimbers, the thought of a whole stainless 1911 for right around $500 delivered (including FFL transfer fee) got the best of me (I ordered the gun on Monday from Buds and it was at my FFL by Thursday). Over the decades, I have purchased almost every 1911 tool and jig that Brownell's sells, and have probably spent more $$ (from a minimum-wage/time perspective) tuning and futzing with my 1911's than I've actually paid for them. After doing the math, when you consider the time component of getting a typical 1911 just right, the "cheapest" 1911 on the market by far is a Les Baer. Having said that, lets turn to the Taurus 1911 9mm. The (rear lug) barrel fit was excellent, and the bushing fit was on par with what I've seen in my Kimbers (no wrench required for removal). The slide-to-frame fit on my gun was solidly between "Kimber" (OK) and "Colt" (loose). In other words, it was also "fine" (closer to Kimber than Colt). The milling on the interior of the slide contained what looked to be some non-standard cuts, but the gun cycled fine and the action seemed to run free and clear. The trigger was clean, but heavy (probably in the _6lbs range). After cutting down the hammer hooks, polishing the sear and disconnector, swapping-out the mainspring and sear spring, and removing the firing pin block and replacing the stock firing pin with a titanium pin and extra-power spring (and smoothing a slightly over-sized firing pin stop plate that was binding on the hammer just a tad), the trigger dropped-down to a clean 3.5lb pull and I was ready for the range (after cleaning and lubing everything). 500 rounds later the gun has run like a top (zero malfunctions of any kind-- including when the gun is loaded to IDPA/SSP division capacity using Wilson 10rnd mags). It is more accurate than I am (quarter sized five shot groups at 21 ft), and all-in-all the gun represents some of the best money I've ever spent on a 1911. As a stock gun, I'm sure that it would be fine for most people, but if you're looking for a relatively inexpensive alternative that can be easily tuned to taste (my additions took a few hours and added about $100 in parts- including a Pachmayr neoprene-coated arched mainspring housing), this gun is really a remarkable value. On the down side, from an aesthetic perspective, Taurus's habit of painting "advertising billboards" on the sides of their slides bears mentioning. I can only surmise that the "advertising" value allows them to offset the price of the their guns in a manner similar to those folks that drive around cars that have been painted to serve as driving advertisements. 3 days ago Jim G Time for some thoughts after the first 200 rounds. This is a full featured 1911 and has a great price, lot of gun for the money. This is my first 9mm 1911 and my first Taurus. I have 3 1911 45acp. (STI, Ed Brown and Tisas). Fit was much better than I expected based on other reviews and mine was tight and smooth. Finish was a little disappointing, the finish just seems to have dirt or color variation that was unusual, but I didn't buy it to look at, so not a big deal for me. The gun functioned with zero problems for the first 200 rounds. I have felt better triggers, but I actually really liked how it functioned. Just seemed to work with my shooting style. Accuracy was very good, Overall impression is the gun is a great value and fun to shoot. I have not tested any aftermarket mags yet but have some coming so I will update. This is not a $1500 gun but it will play with the $1000 ones. I will update with aftermarket mags and see how it holds up under more use. 2 weeks ago Show More Reviews...
