Taurus Model 845 SS 45ACP 12+1
by richard d Date Added: Monday 21 March, 2011
Okay, have fired about a thousand rounds now in this baby, mostly cheapo UMC; have to say, it's a shooter. Yes, i've had one or two FTE, causing a stovepipe jam. It clears easily, and i have no qualms about this being my main carry gun. It loves the Golden Saber JHP 230gr pills, never an issue with one of those.

The fit and finish are excellent. The adjustable palm swell means the stock will almost guarantee a perfect fit for you. The grip is surprisingly narrow, considering this is a double-stack mag loaded with big fat .45 ACP. Line one up some time, next to a measly 9mm Luger. Yep, i'll take my .45s. Recoil is a little heavy, due to the light weight of the polymer frame. However, that's what makes it a great carry gun.

Accuracy is awesome, gun's accuracy is much better than i can shoot. My buddy shot it, he's the kind to cut the X-ring out of a target at 10 yards, and i've seen him do the Mel Gibson smiley face thing; anyhow he shot a group of 10 at my 7 yard target that you could cover with a .50 piece.

Tell the truth - the only real problem is that the front of the slide gets pretty grimy after shooting 200 rounds in a day. Oh, you do have to figure out how to release and clean the firing pin/spring, because it comes dirty in a new gun from the factory test-firing, and gets REALLY dirty in an extended range session.
