Great handgun, much nicer than shown in pictures. No giant Taurus billboard on slide anymore. Only a small Taurus stamp on corner of slide. Shot a bit over 100 rounds with no failures whatsoever. Very satisfied with purchase. Best budget 1911 around.

This was my first 1911, as a gun-nut I had to have at least 1. And it has put a bad taste in my mouth. The gun LOOKS COOL!, and that is where the positives end. It is advertised as being a mil spec weapon; however no aftermarket bushing I purchased for it would fit without modification. The trigger is nice, IF you can remember to muscle thru the ridiculously over weighted grip safety. BUT, the #1 problem is the reliability (or total lack thereof!), the ramp is so steep and designed so poorly even FMJs will get hung up. And GOOD LUCK getting a single magazine of ANY type of HPs thru it without multiple FTFs (I have tried 4 different magazine manufacturers, and 5 different types of HPs, it IS the gun). I didn%uFFFD%uFFFDt fully understand how much this gun sucked until I purchased a Tisas Zig1911 for $350 and learned how a real 1911 is supposed to function.

I'm a Taurus fan and when I decided I wanted a 1911, there was not other place I wanted to look.

I own a 709, 738, and two PT111s. All are awesome guns (especially at their price points).

Having said that, I'm 90% satisfied. First, the gun as covered in shipping grease (first Taurus I've seen like this). Second, grips are really cheap plastic. I will be replacing those. Trigger is gritty per other review. Finally, finish is pretty weak (already starting to wear).

Having got my gripes out of the way, for the price (as usual), it's a great gun. Mechanically, a great gun. Just be prepared for some clean up and I think you'll be happy.

Great Transaction from Bud's as usual. Before a start promise to read the entire review so you don't miss my true feelings. This is a Great pistol from Taurus. Built well and fit and finish is pretty good. Came with Novak sights and no "taurus billboard logo". the pistol i got only has very small Taurus logo on the left rear of the slide and a nice looking 1911 roll mark on the right side. all were gold laser etched and look very clean. Pistol shoots great and I had no issues with the function in the first 200 rounds. I do, however, doubt the claim that they are all meticulously smithed by the "pros" at Taurus. My trigger was a Gritty 8.5 lbs out of the box. I had to strip it to the frame and clean all the shipping grease and polish what I could and obtained a slightly creepy 6 lbs. I put 100 rounds through it and decided to take it to my LGS and let them finish the leaf spring, sear/disconnector and hammer. I now have a very classy metallic blue finish 1911 with a crisp 4.5 lb trigger and some "VZ operator style" grips i picked up on EBAY, all for under $550. IMO thats more than you can ask for. For the money this is a completely acceptable entry to mid level 1911 that I'm sure i will own for a long time. With the trigger work and the upgraded grips i absolutely love this pistol. Just remember that a 1911 is kind of like buying an AR platform rifle. Enter into it knowing that you are going to tweak it, polish it, and add a variety of extra bits and pieces over time to make it your weapon of choice. Don't hesitate on this one, buy it while the price is good.

Outstanding Pistol-

This gun lives up to all the reviews. I bought it after reading all the glowing reviews on it. I inspected it for safety and then fired it right out of the case the way it was delivered. This gun ran flawlessly through 200 rounds of varying ammo. I shot the cheapest lead ball to the best Hornady I had. Not one malfunction. Right out of the gate I was shooting sub 2 inch groups at 15 yards and rapid fire was exactly that. Nothing hung up or was slow in cycling. I used the Taurus mag that came with it plus Para USA and Chip McCormick Custom mags. All the mags inserted, fed, and dropped out perfectly just as you would expect from a quality 1911.

The quality and craftsmanship of this gun is as advertised by Taurus. You could tell the components had been hand fitted together. Everything fit like a glove and there were no hangups or ill fitting parts. The finish was flawless too, not an errant mark on the gun anywhere. This is a lifetime keeper. A beautiful gun.

Can's say enough good things about this Taurus. Buds was great to deal with too. The gun shipped immediately when the purchase was complete and I had it in the morning on the 3rd day, right in the middle of all Christmas rush. This is the best price I've found on the gun too. The first of many I'll be buying from Buds.
