I've heard a lot of bad stuff on the forums about Taurus's quality and customer service. I have no opinion on customer service because the only Taurus I owned until yesterday has been flawless. I bought the first PT1911 that I saw and I couldn't be happier with it. It is 100% reliable with ball, hollow points and lead semi-wadcutter reloads. It shoots to P.O.A and shoots quite well at that. The controls are all easy to reach and operate and the trigger pull is close to match grade. I can't seem to get thousands of rounds through it like some guys do, but I've shot it enough that I'm confident to trust my life with it.
Because of the success I've had with the PT1911 I decided to buy a new PT 745 Millenium Pro. I haven't shot it yet - hopefully I'll make it to the range tonight to see how it shoots. I guess I really never noticed how compact these little guys are. It only holds 6+1, but with .45 ACP do I really need more? I really like the way it feels in my hand and the trigger isn't bad at all unless you are bothered by a long pull. Who has one of these and how do you like it?
