My stainless Taurus 1911 amazed me. It arrived promptly, was clean with only light lube where it should have been. It shows no roughness in machining anywhere. The slide to frame fit shows not the slightest play - could not be better. The barrel bushing fit is all one could expect on a commercial pistol. Even the tightest custom fit of the bushing would not offer enough improvement to be worth the trouble. The trigger pull came in at 5 3/4 pounds with the slightest roughness noticeable only with extremely close examination. A normal trigger press feels crisp and clean. A 1911 trigger is easily improved if desired. Unfortunately, I was laid up with a broken ankle before having a chance to fire the pistol but I will be very surprised if the pistol does not show outstanding accuracy. I could not be more pleased.

There is not enough good that I can say about this handgun. I am blown away by the features that you get at such a bargain price. Front serrations, checkered front strap, Novak sights, ambi safety, adjustable skeletonized trigger, (5.1 lb pull), Commander hammer, etc. This is a lot of gun for a reasonable price. I own a Colt Defender, and a Colt Commander; I have owned an Ed Brown Commander also. I would put this out-of-the-box PT1911 against any of them. I have just finished running 250 rounds of ammo through it without a single issue, not a single one. I am going tomorrow to run another 250 and expect there to be no issues then either. $535.00 plus the transfer fee for a tight, feature loaded 1911 is not bad at all. I was a little reluctant to buy a Taurus, but when I began to research them, I like what I read. Taurus makes every part of the 1911, except the Novak sights, in-house. Every slide and frame is cold forged, not mold injected, and then is hand fitted by a gunsmith, not by a machine. You can\'t go wrong with this 1911 for the price. Buds, of course, is excellent in their service. This makes gun #10 for me from them. Love Buds.

I have no bias relating to taurus, so after looking at different brands of 1911s I chose this one based on looks, features, and price. I wait a while before reviewing guns so I can spend some time shooting and really learning it. Out of the box the gun was dirty. It appeared to be glued to the foam in the box. A layer of the foam was stuck on the gun and both mags. Not a huge issue really. The gun is very tight, seems well built, with no visible scratches or tooling marks. Very reliable, no jams or problems of any sort. Accuracy is amazing with tight perfect groups at 10-15 yards. But it shoots about 8-10 inches LOW. The gun shoots so low i feel like I\'m going to shoot myself in the foot. You cant adjust the sights for how low it is. Pretty disappointing in that aspect. Overall i still like it, but i wouldnt grab it for something other than a paper target

the gun shoots as well as my baby desert and or my kimber!!! (all range shots at 25yds.) buds was very easy to work with. only problem i have is it is supposed to come with a cleaning rod and mine did`nt and buds has not responded to any e-mails. this will not reflect my rating the gun! the gun is truly a 5 star that i would recommend!!

I just got my Taurus PT1911 today and Buds was great in ordering and getting my pistol. When inspecting the pistol at the FFL the first thing I noticed was the foam in the case was stuck to the gun and the magazines. Also the brush was missing that comes with all taurus'. After cleaning all the foam off the gun and mags I took the gun out and put 100 rounds through it and it ran with no problems. I ran 25 rounds of Federal Hydra Shok +p then 75 rounds of American Eagle fmj. Also the firing pin block had to be hammered out and hammered back in to clean the slide in where the extractor is. It will be easier to get in and out in time. Even with the small negatives with the gun it ran and felt awesome. It is nice and tight and dead on as long as I can keep the front sight on target. Thank you Buds. Have to say that Hickok45 got me into buds.
