Taurus 845B PT845 12+1 45ACP 4"
by Mark C Date Added: Tuesday 06 December, 2011
Nice gun. It shoots very well.

I like how high the sights are, it lends to quick pointing.

Mine came with an ULTRA hard magazine release. I can't drop the magazine with my grip hand it's so hard. The strange part is it's only that hard when the magazine is inserted and feels fine without. I'm guessing the cuts in the magazines are a little too high or low.

I love that this gun can be carried in any configuration you want. I can carry it cocked and locked like a 1911 or hammer down safety on or off. The de-cocker is a nice feature too.

The backstraps are nice (it comes with 3) and I enjoyed fitting one to my hand specifically.
Mine also came with a spare magazine, bore brush, and magazine loader. The 12th round is hard to get in, but I never needed to use the loader.

The grip is loooong. I wear a large glove and it's long enough that I have about 1/4" before my pinky would reach the magazine extension. The extension is really unnecessary and it makes it impossible to conceal carry under a shirt, this would require a coat.

If the magazine release worked better, I'd probably keep this gun. I've also recently developed a taste for more expensive, high quality guns.

I should mention this gun out shot and wore less internally than my Sig p250 in .45. Now I didn't put it in a ransom rest so it's a somewhat unfair comparison of accuracy due to the double action only Sig. But the internal wear on the Sig's barrel and slide surprised me, especially when both guns had an equal round count of the same ammo and the Taurus still looked new.

If you plan to ever try carrying it, make sure the magazine release works well and it would do fine.
