    taurus pt1911?

    I know that taurus has crappy customer service but how are their 1911's? I'm a newb and get a 50 50 review on them. I'm young and working on a buget and I'm a lefty. also what's the main diff between their normaol one and one with the aluminum frame? is it mainly weight?

    I haven't shot one, but they seem to be a good value.

    Yes, the aluminum frame is for weight reduction.

    I bought one several months ago. The gun has performed flawless. I use it at periodic IDPA shoots. It's fun to shoot, inexpensive (relatively speaking), and mine so far, dependable.

    I've read and heard a lot of stories about broken Taurus guns, but have heard nothing but praise for this one.

    The aluminum frames are a little lighter.

    Funny, I'm a lefty too.

    I just came from the gunshow at Dulles today and I bought a PT191101AL. I wanted an all black model but i couldnt find a aluminum one. The difference is very noticable with the weight. the all steel ones feel loaded when you pick it up compaired to the aluminum one. Its probably a exageration but it is very noticable.

    I got 2 8 round clips in the box so I bought another. The for the cool factor i bought a 12 round clip and a 15 round clip. 15 round clip looks crazy in the gun.

    First thing I am doing is painting the gray lower black and then getting some kick ass grips
