    Question Taurus PT 1911??

    Read the newest American Rifleman, and saw the article on the PT 1911, the new 1911 pistol from...Taurus, and retailing right at $600.00.

    They gave it a pretty admirable review, but I was wondering if anyone has seen/held/shot one yet. It might not make a bad addition to the ole safe if it turns out to be of good quality.

    I bought a Taurus PT1911 this week. After two shooting sessions I am completly satisfied with the pistol. I shot 100 round's the first time. 50 Remington 230FMJ & 50 Winchester 230FMJ. The thing has not malfunctiond one time. I ran 150 round's through it Saturday. It shoot's as well as any other gun I own. It is at least as accurate as my XD45 Tactical. So far, the only thing I plan on changing are the grip's. The factory plastic one's are a little uncomfortable & get slick when they are wet. I hope to get some more time with it later today, it depend's on the weather.

    Taurus has evolved into a company with a reputation for quality at a resonable cost....
    I'm interested in seeing one of these...

    Bud: I've got one and since I'm very local to you if you want to go to the firing line or top gun or for that matter any range around here you can put a box thru it if you want, so far I've got 450 thru it no failures of any kind and the accurcy is excellent, it shoots as well as my Pro RaptorII.

    I know the MSRP on these is around $600, what is the street price?

    I'd really like to see the compact stainless version, but I imagine that a year or more down the road.

    I haven't seen any mention of a compact version yet. I am just eager to see the 5 inch version in stainless.

    dnm_85- what part of NM are you from?

    I live in Los Alamos, but usually make it to Albuquerque on the weekends for kid's soccer games, Sam's club, & Sportsmans Warehouse.
