Taurus 1911B-1 PT1911 8+1 45ACP 5"
by Richard V Date Added: Tuesday 03 December, 2013
Great weapon. This is my second pistol, and first 1911. I did a decent amount of research before deciding on this one. The features for the price were just too good to pass up. Received at my FFL in 4 days, Taurus ships the gun in a nice hard plastic case, well secured in foam. It includes a second 8 round magazine. My dealer wiped off the grease that was all over it in the plastic shipping bag, but I still broke it down and did a more thorough job once I got it home. It's a good looking weapon once cleaned up. I took it to the range on the second day and ran 100 rounds through it. I had a couple of FTE in the first 50, but I attribute them to the new magazines needing break-in, and my learning how to best hold the gun. By the second box I was getting decent groups, and I fully expect to get better with practice. I have already ordered a set of Hogue rubberized grips with finger grooves as I prefer a larger grip, but that's a personal preference. Once I have another 500 or so rounds downrange I'll update the review, but initially I'm very pleased.
