So when I received the gun it was packed in more grease than I thought was possible, although I expected that based on the other reviews. The gun shoots great, I have around three hundred rounds through it and have not had any issues as of yet. My only gripe with the gun is that the black finish on the top of the slide is already coming off. I didn't expect it to be perfect, I mean it is a Taurus but for a six hundred dollars I had hoped the finish would last a little bit longer. As far as Bud's goes the initial service was great, the gun shipped fast and without issue.

This is a great gun. I've put close to a thousand rounds through and have never had any failures. I'm and amateur but can consistently put down 2- 1/2 to 3 1/2 inch groups at about 20 yards. I would recommend this to anyone who is a fan of 1911's or just a gun lover in general.

Beautiful gun! I love the two tone finish. Had a few failures to eject early on during rapid fire as expected due to breakin and mostly the fact the I was limp wristing it a bit. That .45 pushes you around! Functions great after 150 rounds. Pros: shoots great very accurate very reliable looks great feels great conceals well due to thinness Looks GREAT! Good checkering Trigger is adjustable for overtravel with set screw and reset with bendable wings. Oh yeah and it looks great. Cons: Taurus packs these things for the next millenium. COVERED in packing grease and nastiness. Full strip and clean required before I would shoot it. I like cleaning guns so this isn't really a con so much. Rear sight is crooked a bit. Not noticable while shooting cause you only use the sillouette and doesn't effect aim. But if your looking down at the top of the pistol it is canted to the left by 2-3 degrees. Doesn't bother me cause I want night sights eventually anyway. Grips are nothing to write home about but I would never leave stock grips on any gun. Especially 1911s. Gotta pesonalize it. The finish of the barrel was natural dull silver and a little un even and unnattractive after shooting left some wear marks. Took some sand paper to it and brushed it to match the sides of the slide and it looks great! The Taurus mags seem iffy but I've never held another 1911 mag so they may all be the same design. These are working fine anyway. Just a bit hard to load and unload. Overall this is my new favorite gun. The 1911 is begging to be costomised and I can't wait to start fitting Wilson combat mag well and hammer and sear and extended slide stop and much more! If your looking for s great entry level 1911 that doesn't look like an old military rattle trap Like all the "GI standard" entry levels for around the same price from other brands. This ones got all the bells and whistles to start you off on your 1911 adventure!

Very good gun for the price. It fits well in my hand and also looks great. Ive taken it to the range a few times and shot very well with remington umc ammo. Very small groups of shots and ive never had a problem with it jamming or misfiring. A very nice 1911, one of my favorite guns I own. Buds Is a great place to shop!!!!!!!
