I received the product as promised by Bud's in a timely manner at a very fair price price.My experience with Bud's was great. After removing the caked on packing / shipping grease I noticed many casting imperfections to the frame, thus, I was required to send the pistol to Taurus under a repair ticket (due to the FFL not having the necessary solvents to remove the crud from the pistol and my completing the transfer to clean the pistol at home). At best this pistol was a 40% blemished pistol which was released by Taurus. This being my first Tausus, I am not impressed with the exterior of the pistol, Taurus's Quality Control and timeliness to respond to the issue.

This gun is awesome for the price. If you want a piece of functional history and don't want to break the bank this is your 1911. Fit and finish are definitely not Kimberific, but for the price it is one awesome gun. The action was smooth after I cleaned and oiled her. The frame/slide match was tight, but smooth as silk. If I have one gripe it is the plastic grips, but hey, who isn't going to customize their grips anyways. There are tons of grip options out there specific to this gun. I did order 3 Wilson Combat magazines, but the two that come with the gun are fine. The custom features listed above are spot-on. I'm sure that the inflated prices show up there are not real-world prices, but it definitely is worth the $675 or so that I paid. The only CON is that the front sight was off center out of the case and I needed to drift it back in line. No big deal.

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.
