Taurus 1911SS-1 PT1911 8+1 45ACP 5"
by Douglas L Date Added: Sunday 23 December, 2012
I have ordered several firearms from Buds and as always A#1 service and real quick. The Taurus 1911 all I can say is WOW!!! It%uFFFD%uFFFDs better than I expected. Solid well-made reliable and VERY VERY accurate. I have fired several hundred rounds through this firearm without any problems not one. I changed the sights to Wilson fire sights and the grips are now Pachmayr 1911 ALS grips. The stock mags work but I went with Wilson combat mags just because I wanted better. I would recommend the Wilson combat mags for any 1911. And yes I have run into some 1911 snobs. They see the name Taurus and start with the attitude about how inferior and junky Taurus is. Well while they were getting jams every now and then I just kept hitting bulls eyes mag after mag with no jams. I had a gentleman one other time at the range give me a compliment on it and he was shooting a Colt and Kimber 1911. I asked him if he would like to shoot my Taurus he said sure. After he did he asked me what I paid for it. When I told him he had a surprised look on his face and asked if I could give him the web site info because he said he would like to order one. Of the several hundred rounds fired through this firearm only the first 50 have been store bought Winchester 230 grn all the rest have been Hornaday 185 and 200 grn XTP reloads. Absolutely love this firearm.
