Not to be a spoiler but why would anyone consider buying a 1911 from Taurus when so many other quality manufactures are making 1911's. Recently I was hanging out with some shooters outside my local range discussing random things when a guy was expressesing his heartache about his brand new pistol not working at all; apparently the take-down lever and trigger broke within 200 rounds. A few of us asked him "what kind of pistol is it that broke?" When he said "Taurus" everyone of us standing there collectivley went "Oooooooh I see" and could really express no sympathy. The general concensus was that it was his own fault for having bought a Taurus in the first place ( I appologize to any Taurus fans). So regarding the Taurus 1911m, let it stay on the magazine cover and go buy a Kimber.
Let's see, I have two Taurus revolvers and my wife has a Taurus PT111
ZERO problems with any of them.
Go read the 1911 forums, the reviews by those that own the Taurus 1911 have been favorable so far. Also check out the Kimber sections of those forums and you'll see thread on problems with Kimbers as well.
All companies put out lemons now and again.
Personally I plan on checking out the Taurus 1911 when I see one at a local shop or at a show, and if I like it (and I bet I will) I'll buy it without hesitation (commander sized most likely)
I've beed paying attention to posts/reviews on the PT1911 for while now
every review has been positive so far, no one had any reliability issues.... only two complants I've seen were about grips (the rubber is too hard- cna be easily fixed) and sights (some people are not used to straight 8 sights) i don't think i would have a problem with them; I mean hey I do have a Steyr :lol:
doesn't look like there will be a 10mm version , so might get a 9mm or .45acp or maybe .40 and get a 10mm barrel latter, ot maybe a .38super.... :?
