As with other Taurus-made firearms such as the PT92 or the Model G3C, Taurus 1911 is an affordable gun for first-time or budget buyers. It is manufactured in Brazil and hand-fitted for accuracy. It comes with a dovetail sight, lowered and flared ejection and has a 5″ barrel.
The beautiful feature on this piece is that it is hammer forged, as verified by checking the serial numbers on the parts. A good crisp short trigger keeps muzzle focus where it should stay.
This particular piece has upgraded safety features, such as the ambidextrous safety and Taurus’ special system on the hammer that prevents the gun from firing. It comes with two magazines and a bushing wrench in most places of purchase.
