    It's a Taurus PT1911. Comes with 5 mags, 4 pound trigger, and different hammer.

    I don't know what brand the mags are, or who did the trigger work, but I did ask the guy, he just hasn't responded yet.

    I know everybody makes fun of Taurus, but honestly, how are these in the 1911 spectrum? I have never owned a 1911 before if that makes any difference.

    I know the fit and finish on these guns isn't close what what you would get on a higher end gun, but are these 1911s junk?

    Not a chance.

    The XD is a good pistol. The PT1911 sucks. :whistling:

    That would be a smart move.

    PT1911s have horrible quality control and Tauras has terrible customer service.

    Its a bad combo. :steamed:

    ...however, if you have the opportunity to trade a Taurus for one of these...jump ALL OVER IT. Gatling rubber band guns are always worth it.

    I agree. I had a low serial number Taurus and it really wasn't too bad, But the new ones stink.
