    Taurus PT 1911 problems ?

    I was curious if anyone has had a problem with their PT 1911 ?
    I recently bought one in stainless and have had no problems with it at all.
    It has close to 1000 rounds through it without any failures and seem to be a fine pistol .
    I' m a little scared of Taurus from years past and was just wondering how this gun has preformed for everyone else .

    I have a blued PT1911 and it has performed flawlessly for me. I know that most people's complaints with Taurus have been with their customer service but if the rest of their current guns perform as well as my PT1911 that would be a non-issue for me.

    I have had zero issues with my Tauri - including the pt1911.


    The maximum effective range of an excuse is zero meters.

    ...and the interactions with Taurus' customer service was necessitated because the guns weren't right. They were either broken or failed to function correctly.

    If you have a good Taurus you should thank your guiding angel because it's a real crap shoot to get one. As an instructor I've seen too many Taurus' fail.

    I've had 2 problems with mine.

    The first was the right sided safety fell off the gun after I had lent it to my father to take his CCW class.

    The other problem I have found is that it dents/crimps the edge of every casing that it ejects. Not sure what is causing it, but I'm going to send it back and have them check it out.

    Otherwise than that, I love it.
    Some people are alive simply because it's illegal to kill them.

    If guns cause crime, then pens cause illiteracy

    I too am an instructor like the Sarge and would HIGHLY recommend a Springfield Armory Mil- Spec over the loaded Taurus.

    The only problem I've had with mine is that during the first range trip, the rear Novak sight came loose, and literally fell off the slide. I tightened down the Allen screw, and all was well. I'm thinking that someone at the Taurus factory forgot to tighten it down.

    So all in all, I havent had any "real" problems with mine. Its been a good pistol.

    PT1911AR, no problems here. Relatively new, less than 500 rounds through it, yet. It's going with me to Front Sight next month and we'll see how it holds up after 4 days and 800 rounds.

    Went to the range with a friend just last week who had a new Taurus .45. The gun would not cycle the flat nosed Ammo he had but would cycle the ball ammo. I had no problems shooting it with either ammo. He wasn't locking his wrist causing it not to cycle the flat ammo.

    I have about 1500 rounds thru mine and I never had a problem with it and feeds all types of ammo. Right now its being electroless nickel plated because finish that taurus uses is not durable at all.
