Destined to become the standard that all 1911 pistols are compared against, the Taurus 1911 offers you the most accurate and feature-laden model on the market today. Starting with our own hammer-forged -not cast- ordnance grade steel frames, slides and barrels, we machine each and every part to tolerance levels that surpass even today's industry standards. Our skilled pistol smiths hand-fit and tune each gun with the 19 standard features seen below, using quality parts that are built 100% in our state-of-the-art factory. Then they mark the slide, barrel and frame with matching serial numbers. Available in the powerful .45 ACP, this aggressive, rock-solid firearm is ready to go right out of the box. The Taurus 1911 is an unbeatable gun that is also an unbeatable value.

Great entry level 1911. I've run about 500 rounds through it, no problems whatsoever.

Received from FFL and cleaned thoroughly, lubed with FrogLube. 1.st range session with 230 gr FMJ resulted in roughly 1 FTE/FTL per 8rd magazine. Put 150 rounds through for breaking in. Not happy with results.
Cleaned again thoroughly, this time oiled with Ballistol, 2nd rage session, again with 230 gr FMJ showed still the same results, lots of FTE's and FTL's, sometime a mag went through without problems, but still heavily unreliable.Used original Taurus mags which came with the gun. Put again 150 rounds through, so it should hopefully now be broken in, but still not happy with the reliability of the gun. Not sure how to proceed, ammo is expensive to waste it in a gun which probably has to go due to reliability issues. One option might be to send it back to Taurus to get it fixed, but then it will need extensive firing again to prove it can now be trusted... The other option might be to sell it and say good bye to 1911's and revert back to Glocks which have up to now proven to be 100 % reliable without any break in period right out of the box. I like the look and feel of the PT1911, but in the end I also need to trust it. I don't think it is limpwristing, always focus on proper stance and strong grip with both hands, I also shoot .44 Magnums without a problem, so I would think I can exclude this as the point of failure.

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.
