Was waiting to buy a ruger 1911. When one finally showed up at the local Academy Sports , the slide was loose on the frame and I was simply not impressed with that individual firearm. I waited to get my hands on another ruger 1911 but got tired of waiting. Figured I would give this one a try and roll the dice. I was skeptical at all the "upgrades" included on this weapon. Opened the box and wow, is this a fantastic looking weapon. All the upgrades were there , and the weapon was tight and felt impressive. Broke the gun down--very little packing grease to clean out. Trigger pull was smooth and less recoil than i expected. Did not have to adjust sights as they were dead on out of the box. Had no issues with the magazines , or weapon at all. I know I only fired off 50 rounds, but the weapon feels so great, shoots so great, and feels like a much higher end weapon- so I had to write a review as soon as I got home. Don't let the 1911 snobs turn you off of this weapon. If you are on the fence, get off and buy this pistol. I would easily recommend this to any shooter. Save some money and buy this QUALITY weapon.

Don't hesitate another minute to buy this gun. It is beautiful, a work of art to be sure and Taurus is selling a ton of them!. Forged steel frame, slide and barrel, with features that would cost extra with other manufacturers. The polished feed ramp is very nice. This is my third flawless Bud's purchase and is my first Taurus (I have three) loaded to the gills withe infamous packing grease. A good cleaning is the first order of business before visiting the range. This gun is accurate right out of the box and it eats everything I feed it, 230gr. JHP and FMJs. The more you shoot it, the more you want to. The Taurus magazines work fine with no habitual jamming of any kind. I also bought two Mec Gar that do an excellent job as well. Just blew through 20 rounds of Federal Hydra-Shok 230 gr JHPs with no problem. I have a holster on order, and will carry it with utmost confidence should I need its services in a self defense situation. Ignore the Taurus H8. Taurus International Mfg. is playing for keeps, especially with this one. Plus you get a lifetime warranty and free 1 yr. membership to the NRA. What's not to like? Go ahead and buy this gun from Bud's.

Great gun!!!! This is my third Taurus pistol and I still can't beleive how accurate they are (this one may be more accurate than the other two) Also, my second purchase from Buds and they too were everything as promised.

I bought this taurus 1911, because of the reviews. It far exceded the reviews it was getting, I recieved it in like 3 days, yeah Bud's still rocks! I recieved this pistol about a month ago, and just got it to the range, last weekend. Unbelievable accuracy, well made, no rattles, high tolerances, only thing I could say bad about this pistol is the grips, they are plastic, but still a decent grip, I will be ordering new ones. This will be my new carry sidearm. You will not be dissapointed, if you buy this one. And oh yeah if you are looking for a IWB carry holster, Stoners has them, that is where I found mine. I was concerned, about not being able to find a holster, because of the rail. For the money, and the custom features, on this 1911, it is a freaking awesome pistol. I know youve heard this before, but it shoots better than I do.

I have had this gun about 3 weeks now. Gun is well made and very accurate at the range. I had 2 fail to feed on the last round of each factory mag out of 60rounds. Bought 2 Chip McCormick Promags as extras. So far after an additional 100rounds no fail to feed on any of my 4 mags. May have just needed a little break in time. A lot of reviews say some parts fail more often but if this gun truly takes all Colt 80 series parts it should be no problem to repair extractors or firing pins. Great gun and great service and shipping from Buds. Delivered to my FFL within 7 days of purchase.
