Taurus 1911 45ACP 8RD Blued
by Erik F Date Added: Friday 17 November, 2006
OK now. Well, I was really excited when I ordered this pistol. And, I was even more excited when it finally arrived. But... I had absolutely no idea. Let me tell you something - this thing flat shoots! I shot groups offhand at 25 yards that I can't match (or even get close to) with any of my other handguns. This pistol is "all of that and a bag of chips" Every positive review that I have read is spot on. It comes fully loaded and it is tight and smooth. The trigger is perfect. The sights (which I didn't think that I was going to like) line up easily and provide great groups. The only thing that I did was use a Wilson Combat 47D magazine since I had heard that the Taurus mags weren't that great and they seemed a little lightweight to me. But, having said that, I experienced zero problems with both the factory mags and the Wilson mag using a variety of FMJ and JHP ammunition. I love this gun! I have ordered a set of Chip McCormick thin checkered diamond rosewood grips, since I'm not that fond of the all-black look with the factory Taurus grips (they don't come in wood-colored as shown, but are black). The factory grips feel fine - I just wanted a nicer look. Great gun. Compares favorably with $1000 and up custom 1911 pistols. It's a steal at $500. Buy one!
