Being an 1911 follower, I have many 1911's, I was hesitant about the 1911 Taurus I purchased at a pawn shop. The pistol is VERY accurate, with my handholds. less than 2" at 25 yds shooting offhand. I have 4 9mm 1911's and more than 6 in 45 apc. No complaints, the pistol will make a nice carry pistol or truck pistol. If I loose it, $350 down the drain. No sweat.
