No other gun has ever had even a speck of rust. The MIM parts on the Taurus started rusting with the quickness. It was not terribly accurate either.

I sold it a gun show and have never been so glad to see a gun go.
I have heard a few horror stories about the Taurus 1911 and most of them were about the safety
