The service from buds was top notch, would recommend them to everyone. This gun is top notch .Very accurate and has not had any failures of any kind and I've put around 1000 rounds through it so far. Only issue I have is with the sights. They are not elevation adjustable and mine shoots about 2 inches low. But you can cut bullet holes at 50 yards so Im not complaining!!!!

Let me start off by saying that this is my first purchase from Buds. This gun showed up in a timely fashion and was absolutely flawless! I have put 100 rounds through the gun so far and she performed amazingly well. No FTF or FTE. For the money, I don't think that you can get a better 1911. I would highly recommend this gun to anyone! Great job Buds for offering this gun at such an amazing price!

I'm a bit disappointed with this gun. First Bud's didn't send what I ordered. I ordered the 911ss and received the one with the rail under the barrel. Well, I thought so what, it'll be OK, it's more expensive anyway. Well It doesn't fit a normal 1911 holster, that's what! Then the condition of the bolt face of the slide was atrocious. They must adjust headspace with a tiny belt sander. The center of the bolt face was sanded/ground crooked and angled as well as recessed in the slide quite a ways. There were sanding/grinding nicks on the slide at the ejection port that they tried to sand off, but that didn't work out either. Contacted Taurus warranty and they were very helpful, sent a will call FedEx next day, Friday afternoon. Next Friday morning it was back with a new slide and barrel. It wasn't perfect either, but not something I can't remedy myself. Now to the range. The first slide had nice big white dot sights, Knovaks. The new ones are also Knovak, but tiny little barely visible pale whitish dots. Poor at best. Then shooting over a bench and bags using the normal sight picture, same as explained in the Taurus manual, it shoots 6" low at 25'. Contacting Knovak they tell me the sights are proprietary to Taurus and no standard Knovak sight will fit the Taurus dovetail without machining new dovetails and it already has the shortest front sight available from Knovak. I faxed Taurus warranty a few days back, didn't have the patience to wait on hold for 1/2 hour or so to talk with someone about the sights. As of yet, no response, not really expecting one either. So far, disappointed, wrong gun from Bud's, sent back ot Taurus for warranty before even firing it, now it shoots 6" low. What's to love about it! If I had it to do over I would never buy it again. My AMT, Witness and my son's Rock Island and Llama are better shooters. I guess I'm stuck with it!

I'm pleased overall with my PT1911 and Bud's excellent service and price! The recoil is mild, although muzzle flip is quite pronounced. The thumb safety was very stiff, but loosened up nicely with vigorous exercise. The trigger pull is just about right with no discernable creap and very little reset (_1/8") between each hammer release. Had 2 FTEs out of the first 200 rounds of Winchester FMJ white box. Extractor failed to catch casing lip. I like the traditional 1911 look and feel of this pistol. My only disappointment is that it came with a Novack two dot rear sight instead of Taurus' advertised Heinie straight-eight sights. The Taurus PT 1911 owners manual specifications table (page 26) lists the front sight as "Heinie sight, fixed" and rear sight as "Heinie sight, drift adjustable". I'll be contacting Taurus to see what they are willing to do about this.
