    I made a trade for a 1911,and yes it is a Taurus,unfortunetly did not look the pistol over good enough,turns the safety is fouled up . It seems to be the problem with the ambi falling apart.I read on another forum that u can put back together with locktite and it will work,everheard of that.:dunno:

    you're down in teh Canton area right? if you go by Pro Armament in Cuyahoga Falls, they are pretty knowledgable with 1911's there.

    i would personally swap it out because it seems like it likes to fall apart.

    they have all the parts there, or you can order them from Brownells.
    I prefer the Ed Brown single safeties.

    If you can't find a answer here you may try a Taurus forum? i guess they have those.

    that loc-tite idea sounds a little problematic. You could end up gluing the ignition parts together.

    kinda what I was thinking.If this problem was not present i think this gun would be a good shooter.I wont complain since I bought the red rider at a garage sale for$15.00.It is no Kimber by any stretch but still a 1911.

    You should build a Quackenstein Taurus build. Flat trigger and all Fusion parts. Then do a torture test to see if it would make it through a WWB value pack without something failing, breaking, or falling off. :supergrin:

    He will throw a 6 pack of PBR or bottle of Grape MadDog20/20 in to sweeten the deal.
