Buds gun shop did a great job with shipping even though it was the holiday season. Took the gun to the range and put 100 rds through it. It worked like a charm no issues and the accuracy is amazing. Best christmas/birthday present to myself.

Best handgun deal on the web!!! I bought this gun as a gift for myself after getting into Med school because I've always wanted a 1911. My grandfather was a marine and carried one on his hip through Nam and Korea, and I just feel more American holding a full sized 1911. However, I was a bit skeptical about Taurus as a manufacturer, but for the price you can't get anything with as many features, as good aesthetics, or as good a warranty(both Bud's and the lifetime from Taurus) so I "bit the bullet" (sorry for the lame pun) and gave the gun a try. I had heard some things about the finish wearing quickly and the factory mags being crap, but that wasn't the case for me. I'm happy to report that the gun's a beast! I've put over 500 rounds through it so far with out a single malfunction, and I've fed multiple kinds of ammo including some reel crap. I also have yet to hit the range without someone admiring the gun asking me where I got it. Everyone knows the 45 caliber's a monster with a big bite, but the weight of the gun keeps down the recoil making firing and hitting your target all but foolproof (also the novak sights are excellent!). I shoot a 3" grouping at 30', but a more experienced shooter could probably blow one hole with this 1911 from that distance... it's that accurate. Not that hitting your target's even important when the sound your gun makes would scare off any would-be robber anyway. If you're on the fence about trying out this gun then GO FOR IT! It's much more fun to shoot than my 357 magnum, and it's never leaving my collection.

I have had this gun for several months now and I love it. One of the best purchases I have made. Bud's service was excellent as always. The gun is flawless in both appearance and its function. I have put hundreds of rounds through it with no issues. Accuracy is supreme.

This gun...I've got a love/hate relationship with it. First of all, the features, the price - you just can't argue. I took it out the first time and it worked fairly well, though you should know that the magazines are absolute trash. Neither me nor any of the guys I shoot with (including several very big guys) could get an 8th round into the mags at the beginning. After a week of storage with 7 rounds in the mag, the 8th would finally fit, but gun's feed ramp won't accept the round under that amount of pressure - the slide just won't go forward (same thing happens with all the JHP ammo I've tried too). Second time I shot it, the extractor broke and sent a little shard flying at my face (eye protection, yay!). After that, I had a single-shot 1911. I called Taurus, and they were extremely willing to handle the problem, but I've had dealings with them in the past, and while they're great, they're also SLOW. So I called my buddy, who's a machinist. He had the gun for about 3 weeks, during which time he polished the interior, replaced the extractor, tightened the gun's tolerances all the way around. Took the gun from 'fair' to 'awesome'. Obviously, I can't expect everyone will have access to a master machinist / metalsmith. If you're just looking for a solid 1911 for cheap, you could do a lot worse, but realize that there are some quirks with this gun. If you don't mind having it worked on right after you buy it, you can spend a little money at a gunsmith and end up with a great 1911 for still a lot less than you'd spend on the other high-price brands out there.

Shipped in 4days buds did an amazing job on their part. This 1911 is the best for it's price if your new to 1911s this is a great gun for starters under 600 bucks you can't beat it. Took it to the range shot 200 rounds with no jams, misfires nothin the Taurus was great.

Bud's was great as usual. The Taurus PT1911 is well put together, at least the one I have. Slide fits snug to the frame, ambidex safety is snug and the trigger breaks clean. The blued finish is nice and bright. For the price, the extras make this a great buy. Granted, it is a tad heavy, but with a proper belt and holster, it isn't that bad. I haven't put a lot of rounds through it yet, but so far it shoots well, 1 3/4 to 2 1/4 inch groups from 25 yards with WWB ammo. Worth a look at as a home defense pistol.
