I had one & sold it, slide to frame fit was loose as a goose. Installed a custom EGW bushing & the darn gun woulld shoot then. Just did not like the rattle. Personal choice, I bought it because of all the custom add ons that come in the package. Basically a good gun for the money, just needs a tighter barrel bushing at least on mine.

I own 2 - the black/blue pimp models and am looking for more. I got mine from CDNN for $400. Both have been excellent - accurate, good fit throughout, barrel bushing is well done. I like a but of everything, old and new revolvers and 1911's. I consider the Tauruses to be as good as anything I own - Brown, STI, Kimber, Colt, etc.

That may sound impossible but I assure you the 1911 in .38 super is a heck of a gun and one or the other goes with me to the range virtually every week. Although I build AR's, I rarely shoot them. Handguns are it for me.

I don't really like Taurus guns because I consider them knockoffs. After all their entire business is S&W and beretta copies as well as 1911. But I guess when it comes to 1911 pistols all but 1 is a knockoff right. My dad had aPT1911 and I have to say it was more reliable out of the box than many others I've seen. If you don't mind it being a Taurus I don't see how you could go wrong. Good price and very reliable

My first 1911 was a Taurus 1911 SS, the gun functioned flawlessly but was not as accurate as I thought it should have been. I would look down the slide and the sides were wavy. I ended up with a large sharpening stone taking the sides down on the slide to even every thing up. After doing that it was a gorgeous gun and you would not have known it was a Taurus. I ended up replacing the barrel bushing trying to get the groups tighter but never really did and sold the gun.
Good Luck on you're decision. I liked the gun and I learned a lot from that gun about 1911's

I have a Taurus model 66 .357 Mag revolver and a PT-92 in 9MM. both guns are tight, and very accurate. seems like some folks think if it isn't Colt or Smith it isn't worth much. Don't be to quick to knock Taurus, they also make parts for other manufactures, you may have a gun with those parts and just don't know it.
