Well a couple of years ago I bought the Taurus PT1911 which we have discussed many a time. Recently I bought a Dan Wesson CBOB and I also got new grips for both. Feeling the DW and looking at it I can understand BACs disdain for the PT1911. There just isn't a comparison. Yes my PT1911 shoots well, is very accurate and feeds anything but the feeling in the hand, the looks, the Oh yes Fit and Finish is just plain crap when compared to the DW. Since BAC has so many 1911 pistols I take his comments seriously and have finally got to a point where I agree. The Taurus is really not too great of a pistol. Consider me converted, sorry it took me a while thanks all.
