Taurus 1-191109BHW PT1911 8+1 45ACP 5"
by Frank A. S Date Added: Thursday 21 February, 2013
I purchased this 1911 based on previous experience with Taurus. I own two of their SSA revolvers and a Clone of a colt lightning rifle and another 1911. All I think are nice guns and excellent quality. However the last two purchases this one being a PT 1911 in stainless has me very disappointing in the fit and finish. The finish on the slide around the front side is worn off , the back strap sits inside the frame and the edges of the frame on both sides cut the palm of my hand from the recoil on the first firing . The trigger has about 3/8" of an inch creep feels like i am balling up a hand full of aluminum foil. The slide rattles when you shake the gun and the firing pin block was stuck in the slide , I had to pull the slide apart and clean out the bunch of gunk in the slide . Needless to say I am very disappointed in the gun. Based on the last two Taurus purchases and reviews I have read on line it looks like Taurus quality has taken a nosedive.
