View Full Version : Taurus PT-1911 goes Bang Bang

Date 26/9/11

Time 9.00 am

Weapon:PT1911

Rounds :100

Ammo type: 230 Gr FMJ

Brands: 50 Armscor and 50 S&B

Remarks: The gun was fired from 5 -25 meters with 2,3,5, 8 rounds strings.Altghough targets were used the they were mere aim references.

The Gun performed as expected.The trigger has very little creep and will smooth out around 200 round mark.The full break-in will be after 500 rounds on this gun.It has good point ability and handles recoil quite well.

On a whim i limp wristed the weapon on 50th,60th and 99th rounds and they all produced FTFs so as long as rules are followed this gun will behave but will punish poor handling instantly..

The gun handles rapid fire very well and double taps are very easy thanks to a "almost custom trigger"

+1 For a first time time buy i rather go for this than the Dan Wesson(only credible alternative) that is 3 times the price.The Turkish 1911's have turned up in Pakistan but blatant money making by arms dealers will ensure no one in their right mind will opt for it over Taurus which is a much better made peice.

Only thing that i have a gripe about is the extractor on PT1911 looks and feel like a "toy gun" part and i am in the process of acquiring a replacement one.

The gun is now +250 rounds.The original extractor is holding out.The trigger is smooth as hot knife through butter.I belive that by 500 round mark it will completely settle and ease up into the final shooting model.

Put another 100 rounds through it today bringing the 500 round count up all armscor.Will not use armscor anymore as it produces a lot more fouling the barrel.

Had a FTF while using the 7 round USGI mag which was mag related more than anything else so the gun is now officially cleared for SD duty.

Now i am looking to get hold of some JHP rounds to work through the system.

I have installed Hogue's FGR grip on it and guys.... looks and feels AMAZING..... !!! Never expected Taurus to come up with such a nice piece...! Now looking for 10 round magazines and night sights for it... Any suggestions...??? Hope to hear from you soon.

I guess Taurus uses Novak Sights for 1911, and Novak have Tritium Sights for it, check their page.

The original extractor is holding out.

I knew 2 people who had to change pt1911's extractor as soon as crossing 300 rounds .

I knew 2 people who had to change pt1911's extractor as soon as crossing 300 rounds .

What i have learned from the forums and ppl who own the 1911s that the first 200 rounds are critical for the extractor in any out of the box gun.It is essential that the extractors are kept clean and immediately cleaned after firing during break-in period.My gun is 800 and still holding out on

I followed the advice of experts shot strip clean the extractor every time for the first 200 and then clean the extractor every 200 rounds.

You do get lemons in Taurus 1911s but they are overall well put together guns.I know a person on 1911 forums that have put 8000 rounds through a PT1911 in year and only did maintenance changes on the springs.Another one is 28000 with original extractor.


If you take care of the baby steps with PT1911 it will do good work for you later.

Yes i do agree with you that maintenance/cleanig is essential for long life not only on 1911's, on the other FeW of the model's out of taurus production turn's out to be lemon's wheras pt92/99 are quite reliable and i had carried for more then 2.5 years ..in my opinion taurus should work more towards quality maintenance rather throwing out new shiny models every now and then :)

They do have a very good warranty system in place that Pakistani Dealers have worked very hard to suppress and ignore.Also what is practiced in pakistani markets is not what is done by taurus.

My cousin in US picked up a PT1911 and he had issues with the sights so he sent the pistol back to Taurus who installed new sights free of charge under the warranty. When extractor failed at 1500+ rounds they simple sent him 2 replacement extractors on receipt of the broken extractor.

All reputable gun makers try their utmost to create customers for generations not just life(if you are happy with a particular company chances are you child's first weapon will come from there) but like i said in pakistan all the dealers and suppliers are happy to suppress the warranty programs because they want you spending more on new weapons than getting quality service on old ones

This is because for Pakistan - we scrape to get what we can import and when we do that - spare parts are never on the list. You are in Peshawar, you know the rules... desi=lifetime warranty (yeah right!) / imported = no warranties

Can someone shed some light on the long-term use of a 1911 (particularly the Taurus)?

I've heard these are the Harley Davidsons of handguns; iconic and symbolic, however require a lot of maintenance and lack in reliability.

P.S. So i've read on various forums, not my opinion since I've never had a 1911 so don't shoot me ;)

Ashes bro, I have a USGI Colt 1911A1 which my father bought in 1962 when he was on training in USA, Serial number have shown that it was born in 1943. I am shooting this pistol regularly Since 1996 & it is still my EDC. I neither have to change a part nor any special maintaince was done other than routine cleaning. IMHO problem arises when you use+P ammo. This gun ws designed to use 230 grain FMJ or ball ammo. If you stick with normal loads, you wont face any problem. I had bought a Taurus PT1911 in 2010 but i had to chage extractor & plunger tube with in six months, so I sold it. If you feed it for which it was designed, it will do its job.

No well maintained 1911s are.

here's wher i stand:

2 years
2500 rounds
Been through 100,200,350,500 round test without stripping.
I used regularly by me as my EDC and has never,NEVER failed to do what is supposed to do.

Also

EDIT: Also agree completely with Ahmed regarding type of ammo used.Only top-end 1911s are designed for varied fodder the rest are 230 grain ball eates

Doesnt matter what brand the gun is, but all 1911 parts usually require minor fitting. I've had great success building Norinco 1911's with everything from Kimber to STI parts.

Usmanh
19-06-2014, 02:46 PM
It accepts mostly everything except the sights. The dovetail is larger on the Taurus.

Colt grips fit easily. But remember most of the 1911 grips available are for right handed safety. Taurus has an ambi safety so you will either have to file the upper corner of the grip or file the safety lever on one side of the slide.

The rest of the Taurus 1911 it bloody brilliant for the money - It has a wonderful trigger out of the box, but after 500 rounds it is even better. I would not change anything on the PT except the grips. Pechmyer wood/rubber are my favorites. This is coming from me and I am used to the Dan Wesson Valor and the vBob which I own and fire regularly.

The beaver-tail is the term used to describe the protruding flat metal part just above the grip, which is considered a trade mark of 1911s. With dove-tail, Usmanh is actually referring to the design of the notch in the upper portion of the slide where the rear sights are fixed.

My experience with .45 is restricted to firing a few mags of a friends dan vesson valour, and what i have heard from someone who doesnt own a pt1911 but has owned taurus 9mm is that taurus is a slow shooter...... Can anyone shed some light on the issue, it will be highly appreciated thanks

Slow shooter??

Without the fun switch guns generally shoot as fast as one can pull the trigger.

It happened with my PT1911 too, have to bought one from brownells, infact last item they shipped in 2010 before sanctions imposed. Thats why I carry my oldie Colt till date.

yes it did.
I've heard from ppl that in 90% cases Taurus 1911 extractors break away during the first 200 rounds.

Replacement parts generally do fit, however the firing pin block may either have to be removed or the extractor will require some filing from what I've been told. I'd rather not have the block.

Fudgepacker
20-09-2014, 11:34 AM
Yeah, I think it was an issue with the firing pin block. Shouldn't be a problem then if you plan on removing it. Sorry I don't have a Taurus so can't tell you for sure one way or the other, but I'd be interested in knowing how it works out. Please keep us posted and good luck!

1911s are known to be high maintenance guns (like most things American, in terms of engineering..) ;)

Fudgepacker

1911s are known to be high maintenance guns (like most things American, in terms of engineering..) ;)
That's a pretty accurate statement. 1911's are generally not the best choice for beginners or people who just want to shoot their guns and not have to work on them. It is gorgeous, IMO, but keep in mind the design is over a century old and auto loading pistols have come a long way since then. It's single action only, so for SD, that means having to manipulate a safety, rack the slide, or cock the hammer; processes you can do without in a high stress situation. The single action trigger does make it a delight to shoot however. Yet as a range gun that's actually going to be used ( instead of just sitting around waiting for an emergency ), it also has to be maintained, and without a doubt the 1911 is one of the most cumbersome handguns to field strip. Although it does makes up for that by being relatively easy to detail strip ( still not as easy as a Glock), and be prepared to be doing that a lot if you want it to function perfectly, 100 % of the time. For a flawless 1911, you will have to work for it. Nothing major, but things like the slide not locking back, tuning extractors, breaking extractors, replacing extractors, tightening barrel lug fitment for accuracy, refitting slide to frame, ammo sensitivity, having to adjust new parts to fit (you will break parts), and worn out magazines ( I have more worn out 1911 mags than any other type - have yet to wear out a Glock mag). If you use a 1911 for any amount of time, I can guarantee you will experience at least one of those situations. Don't get me wrong now, I'm not trying to turn you off them, I keep several at a time and they're my favorite guns. But the truth is, they aren't for everybody. Think of it like a beautiful woman that has to have everything her way before she gives you what you want... it takes a certain type of guy to tame her, some don't even want to bother, and others would rather just admire from a safe distance :lol:

Or a .375 magnum such as the Taurus model 608 8 shot in 4 inch barrel. None of the problems associated with the .45

TO be honest though given a choice between a .45 and the .357 I would have a difficult time figuring out what I want. But I think the .357 will win out.

Saw this thread after a month. lalib Khan. If u mean the 1911 then the only reasonably priced one I know is the Taurus 1911 at around 130k last i checked and even that "if" available. My all time favourite would be the NP 44 a Chinese 1911 with a double stack 14 round capacity. However they have all but disappeared from the market. I had heard of a rumour of one for around 80 or 85k. used. Which for a Chinese Pistol is outrageous.

I don't know about the extractor but a used gun is a used gun. The holster won't have any significant value when you are pricing it with the dealer.
With the mags and gun itself you should get 75k 80k. but because of the situation of the market it's uncertain.

Prices are high these days so I guess you might end up getting it but you know how dealers are they will try to skin you . In my opinion having a Wilson Combat extractor is a plus plus cause it's ten times better then Taurus factory extractor .
