The PT1911 is good....
I can tell you from my experience and those I know who own a Taurus PT1911 that it is an excellent 1911. Mine has over 3,000 rounds through it without any malfunction. The only thing I did with mine was to put a fiber optic front sight on it. The gun is forged steel and comes standard features that are options on other manufacturers guns such as a ss match barrel. The only problem I have seen was with the early production models where the right-side safety lever would work loose. Taurus has corrected that problem. Lifetime warranty also.
