Great weapon. This is my second pistol, and first 1911. I did a decent amount of research before deciding on this one. The features for the price were just too good to pass up. Received at my FFL in 4 days, Taurus ships the gun in a nice hard plastic case, well secured in foam. It includes a second 8 round magazine. My dealer wiped off the grease that was all over it in the plastic shipping bag, but I still broke it down and did a more thorough job once I got it home. It's a good looking weapon once cleaned up. I took it to the range on the second day and ran 100 rounds through it. I had a couple of FTE in the first 50, but I attribute them to the new magazines needing break-in, and my learning how to best hold the gun. By the second box I was getting decent groups, and I fully expect to get better with practice. I have already ordered a set of Hogue rubberized grips with finger grooves as I prefer a larger grip, but that's a personal preference. Once I have another 500 or so rounds downrange I'll update the review, but initially I'm very pleased.

This was my second purchase from Buds, and as before shipping was super fast and smooth. Thanks Buds! As for the product, it's exactly as you've read on Buds and Taurus' websites. It comes complete with hard case and accessories, and it's really a great 1911, price considered. I was new to the 1911 market and wanted something with a lot of bang for the buck, and this Taurus fit the bill. It has all the greatest features of 1911's that cost triple the amount, so it's perfect for someone wanting something better than a GI model, but not super expensive. All the features are really exception on this weapon, and all my rail accessories fit it, which is nice. It uses standard 1911 mags, so that's good. The "negatives" I have are to be expected with a weapon at this price range. The first is the fitment, it's not as tight as an STI or Wilson Combat, but keep in mind it's price point. I'll attribute the second ding to the first, and that's the pistols accuracy. For me, it shot good enough, but I tend to shoot at about 10 yards. I took it out to around 17 yards and things started opening up a bit. Like I said, considering the price point, it's an amazing value. I've run about 200 rounds through it and no problems, so I'm quite happy. One last thing, I HATE the stupid extra safety Taurus puts on their weapons, I just leave it off, and if it is too much to bear, you'll just have to swap the hammer.

Firstly great service from buds received my order promptly, that being said the gun was great except for the around 2 hours i spent cleaning all the grease out of it that and the barrel was filthy after showing it some love i took it to the range and ran 250 rounds through it some Remington i got from buds with the same order and some PMC i picked up at a local shop. It preformed flawlessly no failures of any kind i did have a single issue with the slide getting stuck on a bullet but that was with the cheap pmc ammo i picked up it was obviously old had some corrosion i'd wiped it down before going but that didn't help and it only happened the one time the bullet it's self slid back into the shell. That being said that was the fault of the ammo not the gun. She also takes various mags from different manufacturers without issue. Excellent gun for the price.

i had sold my previous taurus pt1911 to an ex-girlfriend then decided to buy another, but with tactical rail. the 1911 shoots well with no issues, but i'm disappointed with the finish.
