The main thing about this gun is its a pretty decent 1911 for a price much cheaper than the next best thing. Its not perfect but it functions great. It doesnt have the same fit and finish as a colt but it functions like one and costs half as much. The safety lever on the right side of the gun for left handed shooters will break off. it doesnt affect the function of the lever for right handed shooters so to me it wasnt a big deal but its pretty sad that mine broke off before i even shot the gun. In the end you get what you pay for and if you want perfection buy a different gun.

My 3rd purchase from buds and it was great. Bought and Shipped out on Wednesday evening and it was in my hand that Friday afternoon just awesome. Price was great to compared to the gun shops and big chain stores around here. Now the gun itself was very dirty when I opened it and it got worse when I broke it down. Everything cleaned up rather easy just disappointed in the thick dirt build up but then again you are getting a lot of gun for the price so I guess I can't complain to much. It did clean up very well and I love it. This is my first 1911 so I don't have the knowledge to say how it stacks up against others but what I can say is It just feels awesome in your hand! I love the sig p226 and the way it feels but this gun just makes you feel like a man. If your looking for a entry 1911 this is a good place to start.

Shipping was average, gun was covered in cosmoline. A spent the better part of 2 hours cleaning. Installed the Pachmayr American Legend grips, as the factory ones left a lot to be desired. At this point i was ok with how it all turned out. Then i took it to the range with an assortment of ammo and different mags. After the first 50 or so rounds...... This is now my go to gun. It is a tack driver, crisp hammer/trigger, Still has the feeding issue as most 1911's do with the majority of HP ammo. I expected this. But with the rounder ones, it actually ran just as good with ball ammo. I put 400 rounds through in total today. Going back out tomorrow to run a few hundred more. After my brother shot it today, he just ordered his own.

My Taurus 1911 is impressive. Accurate, reliable and easy on the eyes. IMO, this is one of the best values in a quality 1911.

The good : Buds service. Excellent communications with customers. Just darn pleasant people to deal with. Pistols finish was very nice. Much improved "clean "checkering on the front strap and under trigger guard .Earlier Taurus PT 1911's checkering was so so. My pistol lacked the billboard size Taurus advertising on the slide. Taurus replaced this on new models with a small circular logo tastefully located on the rear left portion of the slide. Only a mid sized "1911 logo applied to the right side of the slide. Nicely done Pistol looks MUCH cleaner. The trigger breaks exceptionally clean. No grit and minimal over travel. Fired over 100 flawless rounds with no failures of any kind. Pistol also shoots to the point of aim. The Bad :. Sights are some "no name" Novak cloned sights. The pistol DID come with sharp edges everywhere. Razor sharp burrs around the ejection port and under both sides of the slide. I noticed strange noises the first time I racked the slide. Upon dis assembly I found a gigantic burr in the spring tunnel was catching on the recoil spring. All these burrs however, were easily cleaned up with a stone and jewelers file. The slide to frame fit was NOT high quality. Slide rocks side to side up and down. The trigger, although broke clean, broke at over 5 pounds. This is a decent entry level 1911. I tried to consider the price point in my evaluation. If the slide was matched to the frame a little better. I would have given it five stars. Despite the burrs. Note to Taurus, just because you serialized the slide and frame identically, you still need to ensure they actually fit properly together before you can claim on your advertisement they were "fitted". I'm being overly generous with 4 stars. No failures at the range and shoots straight.
