I got a dud. I sent it back to Taurus 5 times before they agreed to replace the gun.
The replacement gun has been 100%. Only 250 rnds on it so far, but it has been perfect. The first one was a disaster, but Taurus paid for shipping and did everything they had to to make it right.
I am giving it 5 stars because of the performance and capabilities of the new gun. Find a gun that holds 10+1 in .45 ACP and is equal in size. I have tried, and the only guns that come close are about $1K.
It is so much fun to shoot that I burned through a whole box of ammo without even noticing. The wide grip that houses the double stack magazine also distributes recoil. I know a lot of people fear the .45 because they think it kicks like a mule, but it does not. This gun has less felt recoil than my 1911 that weighs close to twice as much. Probably because of the wide grip.
I replaced my sights with Williams Fire Sights. I prefer them to the "straight 8" sights from the factory. I understand the cali approved guns come with 3 dots.
Its been a long battle, but this is my current carry gun. Yes, I trust it.
