Taurus 1911B-1 PT1911 8+1 45ACP 5"
by Shawn W Date Added: Sunday 06 June, 2010
As always, very happy with Buds on purchase. Took it to the range after initial cleaning, ran 3 boxes of varied brands range ammo and 2 clips of JHP through it w/o a problem. It grouped nice, and feels great. I don't care for the Heinie straight 8 sights, but I knew it had them when I ordered it. I am disappointed with the rail though, as it's advertised as a 1913 picatinney, but my 1913 accessories won't fit it. The cut is too narrow to be 1913. Also, a chunk of the plastic grip fell off from the ambi-safety cut area during the initial cleaning, so I'm still waiting for replacements from Taurus which, guessed it, leaves my pistol w/o grips because they won't cross ship warranty items. This is my 2nd out of 3 Taurus firearms that I've had to render useless for weeks or months while waiting for warranty items to be replaced. Taurus customer service has always taken care of the issue, but the requirement of sending in parts to get parts w/o an option of cross shipping is ridiculous, IMO. This pistol loses 2 stars for the rail issue. I would've selected another model if I had known I couldn't use my accessories on it.
