Taurus 1911 45ACP 8RD Blued
by Andrew W Date Added: Friday 07 June, 2013
Amazing gun! I picked this bad boy up back in November 2012 and I was shocked by the price of it for all the features it included. Similar guns run thousands of dollars these days, but don't waste the money unless you've got it to spend. Other reviews mentioned that the gun comes dirty and this is totally true. It's not that it's dirty, but Taurus does put some kind of lubricant on their guns and even the mags, so you can just clean it off when you get it - no problem. I've heard that they do this to keep the gun from rusting or something of the sort, because they are manufactured in Miami, FL. The gun shoots great. I've put about 500 rounds through it and had 0 failures to feed or jams. It's very accurate and I think the beavertail feature plays a big role in making sure it's a comfortable grip in your hand. My only negative thing to say about it is that it is much harder to take apart than my XDM or my SD40ve. I think this is common for most 1911's, but this is my first one so I can't really say. Once you get the hang of it it's not bad. I just Youtube'd a video a figured it out pretty easily.

I've heard multiple people say bad things about Taurus guns but I honestly have to disagree. Some people swear by their name brands and that's totally fine. This is a fantastic gun so don't let the name brand scare you away -- it's a great value and a solid gun.

On the shipping for Buds, it was a bit slow because of the Christmas holiday, but their staff is great at answering your questions. I prefer to call them rather than email because times can really vary on their email responses, especially if you as 1,000 questions like I do before I buy a gun. Overall, great product, great site!

**If you want the rail make sure to check with Bud's that this product has it, because I thought I was getting a rail and it didn't have one. Not a big deal b/c this gun is not the type I'd throw an attachment on anyway.
