Thread: Taurus 1911

  1. #11
    I have a stainless model Taurus PT1911. Look around a little more, and you might beat that price by a little. Even at that it's not bad. I have right at 5,000 rounds through mine, with zero issues. Accurate (makes me look good), and dependable. And all the extra features already on the gun make it a hoot to shoot. I think I'll just go out this coming week and cross over that 5,000 mark.
    Taurus products, are a hot seller at my favorite gun shop, with the PT1911s hard to catch in stock.

  3. Several years ago, Taurus had a bad reputation. In todays world, Taurus handguns can hold their own with any gun makers. I have dozens of guns and I choose to carry a Taurus PT1911 for work - and play.

    Not content to only screw up the Berreta design, they decided to enter the 1911 market. Do yourself a favor and get a Glock instead.

    Ruger has a 1911 coming out in a month or two but I never want to be the first to buy any new design from any manufacturer - be it a gun, car or power tool. That said, if Ruger screws it up they will make it right. SA is the same way. I've heard good and bad about Taurus' customer service - I think it has improved now that they have a facility in the US.

    If you get a Springfield do yourself a favor and get one with the Colt-style frontstrap (which is what the new ones have). The older more squared frontstrap can make finding aftermarket grips difficult.

    Exclamation Caveat!

    bought my son a PT 1911 with the tac rail for his 21st birthday, it was accurate however....

    It broke within the first 50 rounds, the ambi safety fell out....
    sent it back to Taurus, they kept it 7 weeks and sent it back un fixed....
    we sent it back, they kept it 7 more weeks, and they sent it back un fixed..
    we sent it back they kept it 8 weeks, sent it back fixed with scratches on the slide...
    we sent it back they kept it 7 weeks, sent it back and now it could not group...
    we sent it back, they kept it 7 weeks, sent it back still will not group..
    we sent it back, they kept it 8 weeks, sent it back fixed this time...

    each time we called, and were promised they would put a rush on it.. yeah like hell they did, we wrote a letter to the CEO and never got an acknowledgment, all in all we called over 20 times, were promised a lot and none were delivered...

    add to this the fact they use a bastardized dove tail on their sight so off the shelf stuff will not fit, the grip is slightly wider so most holsters, and aftermarket grips will not work, and their bluing is soft, I ended up coating it my self...

    Is it a good gun now... yes but who wants that level of hassle just to get something to do what it was suppose to do out of the box!!!

    I've had no problems with my PT 1911. I did chuck the ambi-safety as I hate them.

    Many who have shot both believe the Taurus PT92 is as good or better than the Beretta 92.

    (Personally I think both are too big for a 9mm pistol.)

    Well like I said, do yourself a favor and get a Glock instead.
