    Taurus 1911

    Eyeballing them. Anyone have experience with them?

    For a toy or defense?

    They were on the lower end of all offerings when I was in the market.
    I was steered away by my local shop.
    Landed on a colt and a Springer...
    Cry once as they say.

    IN before the glock fanboi!
    If you fire A 1911 first you will h8 the striker fire control!

      Yes.

      Springfield is second on the list for a few hundred more $. I really like the look of the Ronin.

      Whatever I end up with will be full size 5" barrel .45 acp.

          I would not go Taurus on a 1911.

          Rock Island is way better in the affordable 1911 category.
          If you don't mind supporting the POSs at Springfield that is another good way to go.

          Might see what you can find used locally.

            I have a Taurus pt100, not quite a 1911 but there’s nothing wrong with it. For 1911 on a budget look into the Remington r1, I have the enhanced and I can shoot better with it than my SA operator. I think it was less than 600 in like 2015ish.

              What’s the issue with Springfield! I have Had a 1911 Range Officer For ten or so years and have never had any issues with it.

                  3 years ago Springfield armory's lobbying group supported a law that added a bunch of restrictions at the state level, but exempted themselves from the extra regulations.
                  Rock River was involved too.

                    I have the base model Springfield 1911 and love it.
                    A buddy that worked at a gun shop for some years said he had a lot of Remington r1 come in for repairs. YMMV. Click image for larger version

                      Bid on a Rock Island on gun broker. My go to gun shop closed, the others in the area have strange hours. Some other good ones in the state, just need time to get there.

                        No on Taurus 1911s especially that one with the black finish. Friend had a devil of a time getting them to warrantee it when it broke. Had to get the gun store he bought it from to pester them to get moving on it. He had only had a few months and the finish was already wearing off.

                        Springfields can be well made. Looks at Dan Wessons if you can find one. They have a really nice crisp trigger.

                          I have 1911’s that run from the Taurus to 3k customs. The Taurus eats everything. It’s been a fucking rock and I’m surprised. Would buy.
                          I’m what you call...your basic famous.

                            My glock will eat anything also, but it's just a beater and HAS to.
                            the customs get to be finicky...
                            self defense as the op wants...

                              Good to hear. I might run over to my hole in the wall back woods gun shop in the am. See what they got.
