Taurus 1911SS-1 PT1911 8+1 45ACP 5"
by myke m Date Added: Tuesday 21 July, 2009
I was very pleasantly surprised with this gun. I've never been a big fan of the Taurus brand, but I've shot a handful of 1911s over the years - and the PT-1911 stands up with the best of 'em. The features that come standard on this gun tend to only come as either after-market customizations of similarly priced 1911s, or standard on high-end guns that cost easily 2x the price. Only complaint I have is I wish it came with wood grips, but really the plastic isn't so bad - and it's just a matter of personal preference on my part. I had a bit of a problem feeding JHPs early on, but by the time I had a couple hundred rounds through it and the feed ramp smoothed out a bit more - that went away. Everything's built to a good tolerance without being too tight and over-engineered and picky like a Kimber (great guns but they are super fussy early on).

I couldn't have a more positive opinion of this piece, and my opinion of Taurus as a whole went up a couple notches as a result. It's not just a good gun for the price - it's a good gun period. The price just makes it that much nicer.
