Taurus 1911B-1 PT1911 8+1 45ACP 5"
by Angelo S Date Added: Tuesday 23 July, 2013
This was my second purchase from Buds, and as before shipping was super fast and smooth. Thanks Buds! As for the product, it's exactly as you've read on Buds and Taurus' websites. It comes complete with hard case and accessories, and it's really a great 1911, price considered. I was new to the 1911 market and wanted something with a lot of bang for the buck, and this Taurus fit the bill. It has all the greatest features of 1911's that cost triple the amount, so it's perfect for someone wanting something better than a GI model, but not super expensive. All the features are really exception on this weapon, and all my rail accessories fit it, which is nice. It uses standard 1911 mags, so that's good. The "negatives" I have are to be expected with a weapon at this price range. The first is the fitment, it's not as tight as an STI or Wilson Combat, but keep in mind it's price point. I'll attribute the second ding to the first, and that's the pistols accuracy. For me, it shot good enough, but I tend to shoot at about 10 yards. I took it out to around 17 yards and things started opening up a bit. Like I said, considering the price point, it's an amazing value. I've run about 200 rounds through it and no problems, so I'm quite happy. One last thing, I HATE the stupid extra safety Taurus puts on their weapons, I just leave it off, and if it is too much to bear, you'll just have to swap the hammer.
