Taurus pt1911 alr

I JUST PURCHASED YESTERDAY A TAURUS PT1911 ALR WITH THE ACCESORY RAIL ON IT AND LET ME TELL YA I'M VERY PLEASED CONSIDERING WHAT I PAID FOR THE GUN (CHEAP). CAME WITH 3 MAGS!!! A CLEANING BRUSH AND A NICE FOAM FILLED HARD CASE THAT'S CUT OUT TO FIT THE PISTOL INTO THE FOAM. SHOOT 2 INCH GROUPS WITH EL CHEAPO WOLF GREEN CASE FMJ AND I GOT 1 3/4 GROUPS USING HORNADY TSP FPD HOLLOW POINTS ALL AND ALL I AM VERY PLEASED. IT IS MY FIRST 1911 STYLE PISTOL AND I AM VERY HAPPY IT WILL PROBABLY REPLACE MY CURRENT CCW (GLOCK 22 )

That's a nice looking slider. Sounds like it came pretty well equipped also.

I love my blued PT1911,a very accurate shooter.
Just keep an eye out on the ambidextrius saftey,they can come loose/fall off.
They are no big issue,but annoying.Mine has never had an issue,and its really the only issue this gun is known for.

Congrats on the PT1911.
Now if they will just make a Commander size one things will be even better.
