I have two 1911 style pistols. This is the one from Taurus and I enjoy shooting it often. I have had not problems with the gun except it wants to get still if ammo is left in the gun for several days, as in a holster or sitting on a shelf in the safe. This seems to happen to every 1911 i have ever had. It is comfortable to shoot and not excessively heavy to carry if needed. Shoots to point of aim and I have used led, semi jacked hollow points and full metal jackets in it and no problems.

I've had this Taurus PT1911 .45 ACP for 7 years now. It had 6-7 hiccups within the first 50 rounds fired. Since that time I have put 5,000-6,000 rounds of various loadings and brands of ammo, including reloads, and have never experienced one single FTF, FTE or FTFire. The only modification I have made was to add a set of nice custom grips. Also, the factory supplied mags have not given me one bit of a problem. I've also used other mags which have worked flawlessly.... Chip McC, Wilson, Ruger, Mecgar, MetalForm and a couple of old beat up GI surplus mags. The only negative; the finish is a bit thin and is wearing in places. But this gun is a tool, not a safe queen. This gun is used for plinking and home defense. I've not carried it on my person as a CC piece but it does ride in the center console of my SUV. I trust it to perform in the event my life or other's lives are in danger. I have confidence that it will NOT fail me.

Amazing gun! I picked this bad boy up back in November 2012 and I was shocked by the price of it for all the features it included. Similar guns run thousands of dollars these days, but don't waste the money unless you've got it to spend. Other reviews mentioned that the gun comes dirty and this is totally true. It's not that it's dirty, but Taurus does put some kind of lubricant on their guns and even the mags, so you can just clean it off when you get it - no problem. I've heard that they do this to keep the gun from rusting or something of the sort, because they are manufactured in Miami, FL. The gun shoots great. I've put about 500 rounds through it and had 0 failures to feed or jams. It's very accurate and I think the beavertail feature plays a big role in making sure it's a comfortable grip in your hand. My only negative thing to say about it is that it is much harder to take apart than my XDM or my SD40ve. I think this is common for most 1911's, but this is my first one so I can't really say. Once you get the hang of it it's not bad. I just Youtube'd a video a figured it out pretty easily. I've heard multiple people say bad things about Taurus guns but I honestly have to disagree. Some people swear by their name brands and that's totally fine. This is a fantastic gun so don't let the name brand scare you away -- it's a great value and a solid gun. On the shipping for Buds, it was a bit slow because of the Christmas holiday, but their staff is great at answering your questions. I prefer to call them rather than email because times can really vary on their email responses, especially if you as 1,000 questions like I do before I buy a gun. Overall, great product, great site! **If you want the rail make sure to check with Bud's that this product has it, because I thought I was getting a rail and it didn't have one. Not a big deal b/c this gun is not the type I'd throw an attachment on anyway.

So I don't normally review products, but I felt compelled due to the high quality of this product. First of all, kudos to BGS for fast and safe shipping to my FFL dealer. Free shipping....can't beat that. 1. Fit & Finish: Broke the gun down and cleaned all of the cosmoline (factory shipping lube) off of the gun. Oiled it up as well. After cleaning, the gun showed off it's nice clean lines and decent finish for the price. All of the parts fit together as they should, not too much rattle. After disassembly i noticed all of the parts were nice and smooth. No burrs or "hack jobs" that I could find. 2. Range report: Right outta the box this thing is a tack driver. Loaded it up with 8 rounds per mag of winchester white box 230 grain ball ammo. It ripped up the 10 ring at 15 yards and hit where i pointed it every time. The sights (Heine straight 8 i believe) are very accurate and easy to acquire. POA was very natural. Mags accepted all 8 rounds like they should. Trigger is clean and crisp. Recoil is very slight and the gun is very well balanced. Recoil was more straight back, and had minimal muzzle rise/flip. I ended the session with a mag dump and fired every round in the mag as fast as possible, dropped the empty, reloaded another mag, dumped that one as well. Every shot hit paper(all easily within center mass) and had no failures. 16 shots in about 5 seconds 3. Overall experience: With a sub-$600 price point, nice fit and finish, and supreme accuracy, why would anyone want to spend 4-5 hundred more on a *imber or *olt? This thing is a modern marvel at this price point.

I was debating buying the Taurus 1911 given the mixed reviews available on the net. I bought one because of Buds really low price. I'm sorry I did. Took the gun to the range, it shot 3 feet low, 1 foot left of point of aim for twenty rounds at 15 yards. Taurus wanted to send me a new front sight (stupid idea). One service rep said it might be the shooter. Guess what I told him? It's been almost 6 weeks since I sent the gun to them, rep says he has no idea when they will get to it. It appears Taurus has a serious quality control problem by allowing large numbers of defective guns out the door. That's why their repair facility is so backed up. I'll another Taurus no matter how low the price. Bud's has a great price on Sig Sauer next purchase!

Buds gun shop did a great job with shipping even though it was the holiday season. Took the gun to the range and put 100 rds through it. It worked like a charm no issues and the accuracy is amazing. Best christmas/birthday present to myself.

Best handgun deal on the web!!! I bought this gun as a gift for myself after getting into Med school because I've always wanted a 1911. My grandfather was a marine and carried one on his hip through Nam and Korea, and I just feel more American holding a full sized 1911. However, I was a bit skeptical about Taurus as a manufacturer, but for the price you can't get anything with as many features, as good aesthetics, or as good a warranty(both Bud's and the lifetime from Taurus) so I "bit the bullet" (sorry for the lame pun) and gave the gun a try. I had heard some things about the finish wearing quickly and the factory mags being crap, but that wasn't the case for me. I'm happy to report that the gun's a beast! I've put over 500 rounds through it so far with out a single malfunction, and I've fed multiple kinds of ammo including some reel crap. I also have yet to hit the range without someone admiring the gun asking me where I got it. Everyone knows the 45 caliber's a monster with a big bite, but the weight of the gun keeps down the recoil making firing and hitting your target all but foolproof (also the novak sights are excellent!). I shoot a 3" grouping at 30', but a more experienced shooter could probably blow one hole with this 1911 from that distance... it's that accurate. Not that hitting your target's even important when the sound your gun makes would scare off any would-be robber anyway. If you're on the fence about trying out this gun then GO FOR IT! It's much more fun to shoot than my 357 magnum, and it's never leaving my collection.

I have had this gun for several months now and I love it. One of the best purchases I have made. Bud's service was excellent as always. The gun is flawless in both appearance and its function. I have put hundreds of rounds through it with no issues. Accuracy is supreme.

This gun...I've got a love/hate relationship with it. First of all, the features, the price - you just can't argue. I took it out the first time and it worked fairly well, though you should know that the magazines are absolute trash. Neither me nor any of the guys I shoot with (including several very big guys) could get an 8th round into the mags at the beginning. After a week of storage with 7 rounds in the mag, the 8th would finally fit, but gun's feed ramp won't accept the round under that amount of pressure - the slide just won't go forward (same thing happens with all the JHP ammo I've tried too). Second time I shot it, the extractor broke and sent a little shard flying at my face (eye protection, yay!). After that, I had a single-shot 1911. I called Taurus, and they were extremely willing to handle the problem, but I've had dealings with them in the past, and while they're great, they're also SLOW. So I called my buddy, who's a machinist. He had the gun for about 3 weeks, during which time he polished the interior, replaced the extractor, tightened the gun's tolerances all the way around. Took the gun from 'fair' to 'awesome'. Obviously, I can't expect everyone will have access to a master machinist / metalsmith. If you're just looking for a solid 1911 for cheap, you could do a lot worse, but realize that there are some quirks with this gun. If you don't mind having it worked on right after you buy it, you can spend a little money at a gunsmith and end up with a great 1911 for still a lot less than you'd spend on the other high-price brands out there.
