    So, I've got a Taurus PT1911 in 9mm on the way. Should I plan on buying AMMO:supergrin: or ASPIRIN :steamed:?
     
  2. If you are worried about it then why buy it? I would buy ammo and assume it will be O.K.

    You could certainly sell it to Fipper before you shoot it. He thinks they are right up there with the Wilsons and Baers. :dunno:

  7. Buy some aspirin and save the ammo until after you buy some parts for it.

    The frame and slide will be ok to keep.

    Best of luck.

    That's the only thing worth a damn on the Taurus. Of course, they managed to ruin the frame with those scratches they try to pass off as checkering.
     
  9. Taurus, Keltec, and some Rugers don't get much if any respect here on GT. If it's reliable for you, enjoy. If not, I've heard that they improved their support by adding more people on the phones and processing returns so hopefully the warranty repair turn around time is greatly reduced.

    I agree about Taurus and KelTec, but I think Ruger gets plenty of respect on GT. Sure there are haters, but that goes for any brand.

    I'm actually not a Taurus hater. I've got a few Taurus revolvers that have been great and I also have a PT92 that I like. The 1911 leaves something to be desired, however. I think its the worst current production 1911 on the market.
     
  11. I said "some Rugers" and I was referring to the LC9 and SR9C since many don't like the extra safety features.

    I'd love to buy a Taurus, but the QC is just too hit or miss. The last two I shot, a PT1911 and a Raging Bull both had problems.

    Buy ammo, and lots of it. I’ve got well over 1,000 rounds thru my PT 1911 in .45 ACP with zero problems. Only thing I’ve done to it is switch that anal ambi thumb safety that kept coming on while shooting with a Wilson Combat single side thumb safety. Can’t find any other negatives about the gun, except the finish is of poor quality and will wear off soon.

    I bought a Taurus 1911 in 45acp and assumed it would be a potential box of problems.. but mine has nice sights and works very well. My only issue is that the pistol is very loose shooting. The finish is not nearly as nice as an average bbq grill either.

    Check the screw that holds the rear sight down. It’s a tiny little set screw set so deep in the sight that you need a good light and a magnifying glass to see it. Mine came loose. It started shooting all over the place, and when I found the rear sight was loose, and I tightened it up, it started shooting fine again.

    A friend of mine bought one (one of the "match" models) NIB for a good price and after 400 rounds the extractor broke. Hope you have much better luck with yours OP!
