    I have an older 92. Love it. Revolvers are ok at best.

    The polymer Taurus's I have are pretty reliable but really don't shoot that well for me.

    I know there are haters of a Taurus models but is there any Love for the 1911 out there?

    Just for a beater?

    I actually had one for several years. It shot well, ate any ammo I fed it, and was an all around good 1911. Mine was stainless, and the only mod I did to it was to remove the ambi safety. Outside of that, I only sold it because I needed money for another project. If you get one for a good price, go for it. They are guaranteed for life, no matter how many previous owners.

    I've been happy with mine. SN 01911. I guess that was a good sign. Many thousands of rounds without a single problem. I'm not sure why so much hate. I also had the PT92 for a while. Again, it was nice and shot great. Just sold it to fund something else.

    I'd buy another PT1911 if it was $100 or less to use as a total beater, otherwise I'd rather spend the money elsewhere.

    My wife and I have a number of Tauri, 5 semi's and one revolver and have had no trouble whatsoever, unless you consider that the Millenium doesn't like CCI aluminium case ammo, but Taurus tells you that.

    Out latest is a brand new PT1911 and I am "putting it through it's paces" right now. No problems what so over have cropped up, but I would just about guess, that if you had the time to go on every website and mention every brand of 1911 out there you would probably run a good chance af being told, by more than one person, any brand is "junk". such is the way of the internet and to an extent 1911 clones.

    The Taurus has a number of commendable features Thye have apparently gotten away from the "straight-eight" sights which was a blessing to me as a matter of personal taste, and gone to a three-dot that I prefer. I did a bit of searching on the net, and a bit of research, and found there are a couple of "gentlemen" who seem to hit everyforum out there, under different screen names but always with exact boilerplate complaints almost word for word descriptions. Mneh.

    The trigger on mine is very good for not being a 'custom" job, it's acccurate, but I am a strange duck in that, I don't get overly bent about "out of the box" one way or the other. I want to know exactly how accurate it is after 1,000 rds, I haven't reached that mark yet, but out of the box I will say it was impressive.

    The only two things I can find fault with are the blued matte finish which starts to polish in about three trips from a holster, (it is blued well it is just the method used for the "matte" effect polishes down) and the magazine well bevel is frankly a "kiss on the cheek" compared to what it should be.

    I can't and won't completely recommend it without some more time, but I don't see any problems looming on the horizon.

    I've probably mentioned Taurus quality on a few forums, but that's because every revolver I've handled has random tolerances in the cylinder when in full lock up, some new one's having shaved lead from the factory NIB and the PT 1911 I had was a total POS from top to bottom. It fed zero HP ammo no matter what mag, extractor tension or how much the feedramp was polished and only 50% of ball ammo. Finish was like it was applied with a sharpie, ambi safety fell off and the wonderful and common hammer follow actually ignited a round when I chambered it at the range which scared the crap out of me and no, my finger was not on the trigger although some rabid Taurus fan might never believe that one. :upeyes: That cursed brand will never be in my possession again.

    I bought one of the Taurus 1911 "pimp" guns (bright bluing, gold accents) that CDNN was running for $399 in .38 Super. Great gun! Trigger is slick, no bobbles through 400 rounds so far (factory and reloads). Really don't care for the finish but for just South of $400..who cares!
    I also just picked up an older PT-92, mainly because it was the first gun I ever bought for myself waaaay back in the late 80's. $265 out the door and it's a fine shooter as well.
    Had an older Mod 65 revolver that I used as a teaching pistol for females and a loaner gun if anybody needed it for awhile. No problems ever.
    I like Tauri and I'm not afraid to say it!

    I like the Taurus 92 and the Taurus revolvers. That's it.

    The 1911 is probably the worst on the current market.

    The only Taurus I've ever found worthy of owning is the 92.

    In my opinion, if you own any other Taurus gun and haven't had issue with it, you aren't shooting it enough. YMMV but I doubt it.

    Your post remind me of Taurus' ad back in 2010. I digged through my old gun magazine and finally found them.

    Sorry for the ****ty phone camera, my scanner broke down earlier this week and haven't replace it.

    I like how they break down all the "upgrade" parts and claim they are selling a $2100 worth of pistol for a discount price of $700.

    If I break down every parts of a Honda Civic and list their retail part price, it would be a $65k car.

    I do not have plan on getting this fine pistol. But CDNN was having a sale for $399 not too long ago. Whoever was interesting in it should give them a call.

    PT92 was indeed a great pistol. I enjoy my AFS a lot (almost more so than my Beretta G Vertec).
