74 k, .45, fired couple of rounds yesterday, seems very accurate. I was looking for the one with rail to put a scope/night vision on it, the scope/night vision comes handy for wildbores, same friend uses it for night hunting, its very effective

I am not a handgun nut, your feedback will help me lot to decide. Moreover, im getting a PT99 slightly used but i have fired a couple of rounds thru it, its not accurate at all. Can anyone guide me how to zero a pistol with natural sights? reason behind zeroing is that i fired 10 rounds at a gamla which had a height of around a feet and was roughly 5 inches thick from 30 yards, wasn't able to even snick it lol..... sounds pathetic i know, the pistol is brand new, either it requires zeroing or maybe im the worst shooter ive ever seen in my life lol

the 99 is a very accurate weapon, there must be a serious zeroing issue

at 30 yards. not much to zero at with a .45. I`m hoping a new gun wont be that off target, best for 1911 owners to answer this one.

For discussion purposes..

a 1911 is a classic that has been part of/is gonna be part of any enthusiasts collection. A lot of them can be found here within the brotherhood...

taurus 1911 is a good weapon uses .45 bullets. quite accurate and powerful gun. for zeoring a PT 99 u have to fire 5 shot groups on paper target from the distance u want it to be zeored and post the results. there is another weapon CZ 97 in .45 calibre which lots of members have purchased , u can have a look at it although it is on heavier side

... When Taurus announced that it would be introducing it's very own 1911 .45 ACP model and to top it up, they stated in their initial press release that 'their' 1911 was “Destined to become the standard that all 1911 pistols are compared against”, this raised alot of furor and anticipation among 1911 fans across the globe. This was further hyped by discussion of various online forums even by people who probably had never shot a 1911, claiming either that Taurus 1911 is not upto the mark OR that it is a very good gun for the price.

All this changed within a few months of it's release. 1911 fans across the world who have bought and used this model from Taurus now acknowledge that the Taurus 1911 is not only a very good gun for the price, but a very good gun for any price range.

Similar models (having similar quality and performance) from manufacturers such as Wilson Combat, Kimber, Springfield, and other 1911 makers sell their models for $2000. Taurus is offering the same thing for $600 !!! Naturally, the question arises, how can similar quality and performance be offered for less than 1/3rd the price. Well, that has been Taurus' marketing strategy since the last many years and we've seen this also in their PT92/99 model. This is one of the reasons why they have grabbed such a huge market share in such short time, and Pakistan is no exception where the other high-end 1911s cost 3 to 4 times more and offer the same quality.

Good 1911 pistols. They go for around 550- 650 dollars here in the US. I liked mine but traded it for the Glock 21...

It was the steel frame. I liked the steel over the aluminum. It just felt better in my hand and could stand a lot more punishment if you wanted to shoot +p rounds.
