Taurus 1911SS PT1911 8+1 45ACP 5"
by Paul V Date Added: Wednesday 16 February, 2011
I'm pleased overall with my PT1911 and Bud's excellent service and price! The recoil is mild, although muzzle flip is quite pronounced. The thumb safety was very stiff, but loosened up nicely with vigorous exercise. The trigger pull is just about right with no discernable creap and very little reset (_1/8") between each hammer release. Had 2 FTEs out of the first 200 rounds of Winchester FMJ white box. Extractor failed to catch casing lip. I like the traditional 1911 look and feel of this pistol. My only disappointment is that it came with a Novack two dot rear sight instead of Taurus' advertised Heinie straight-eight sights. The Taurus PT 1911 owners manual specifications table (page 26) lists the front sight as "Heinie sight, fixed" and rear sight as "Heinie sight, drift adjustable". I'll be contacting Taurus to see what they are willing to do about this.
