[5 of 5 Stars!]This has been my "trainer" for the 1911 platform. I put wooden handles on it to give it a more attractive look. I've field stripped it 50 times, and lube it with Militech, a dry lube, heated with a hot hairdryer. Since I've broken it in, it is 100% reliable. The "blueing" is a little worn, and I've added some idiot scratches of my own. In short, I've learned to love this gun. I carried a 1911 in the military, and now understand what an icon this is. After shooting it, tighten sights and grips. You'll like this gun.

[5 of 5 Stars!]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.Show More Reviews...
