Capgun - the way these are flying off the shelves,i'd say they are well received and well liked. I'm no gunsmith, but I'll bet it's not too serious or difficult for the factory to correct.
Darrel - you really like their 1911? Which version do you have? I've been waffling on buying one for over a year - no collection is complete without a 1911, and Taurus claims they put lots and lots of features/hand fitting into theirs. I've heard of problems with the safety, slide being too stiff, but nothing major or devastating, and a number of folks say it shoots pretty straight - some claiim it will outshoot their Kimbers and Commanders. Is yours one of those "I LOVE this gun!" endorsements, or not quite so much? Just curious. Thanks in advance.
Last night I just bought the Taurus PT1911SS, .45ACP, 5" barrel and two 8 round magazines, their stainless steel model. I went out and put 50 rounds through it and not a single problem. It is my first 1911, my first .45 and the first time I shot a .45 and I loved it!!! The recoil is more of a push compared to a kick from my 9mm Springfield XD-9, I can really hold it relaxed and still have a good control of it, compared to my 9mm where I have to hang on to it to make sure it doesn’t jump too much, and I love my XD-9. So far I am really happy with it, if this continues, it would be great! I got mine brand new, payed $645+tax in town, another dealer has it for $699, not sure how that compares to the rest of the country, but I'm happy!
