OK... Can we stop with the Taurus stuff? Truth be told, both are second maybe third, rate manufactures made in a third world country probably made in a sweat shop by child labor with inferior materials on a copies design. There, I said it and we can leave it alone.
"Just blame Sixto"
I love my TAURUS 24/7 in .45ACP. It's a great gun, and I've never had any REAL problems with it; I have had a couple Failure To Feeds, and I blame the mags.
If I were going to get a 9mm, especially a 'Beretta', I would personally get the real Beretta. I've never fired one, but I would love to. The Beretta 92FS is by far my favorite (and only 'respected') 9mm handgun.
I have had overall good experiences with my Taurus, but, given the choice; I would trade a Taurus for a 1911 (especially mil-spec) in a heartbeat.

Please take everything I say with at least one grain of salt- I am a very sarcastic person with a very dry sense of humor.
I own three RIA`S. A Compact,Tac and a GI all in .45ACP. They all run Perfect and will go up against ANY high dollar 1911 out there for accuracy,shootability.Why would you want to step down??. And they also include the Great Lifetime RIA warranty.
