    If the price was right I would try one,I have five taurus revolvers including the model 605 357mag I use as my carry gun,I have no complaint with any of them,I wonder who is making their frames?

    Why shouldn't they? Everyone, EVERYONE else has. I, too, have good experience with Taurus. [:0]

    That's what I always said, but then I found out about a guy out here who makes custom 1911's for $300.

    Taurus has one of two foundries in Brazil. It makes good steel, but is secondary in reputation to Imbel, one of the best in the world, which makes many of the lower frames for Springfield Armory.

    It will ether be a fantastic 1911 ,and will take over the low end market ,or it will suck badly ,and sit next to charles daily

    everybody is making them ,but not all of them are good ,some don't deserve to bare the name ,you would think with all the competition some of the lower end would put out a bit better product

    CHGOTHNDER--Ever see the movie "Black Sheep"?

    I've heard a LOT of complaints about Tarus' polymer compact semi-autos. I've never heard a complaint about their 92FS clones and only a handful of complaints about their revolvers (all associated with the Raging Bull's inability to stand up to some of the hotter cartriges).

    I'd like to see the price tag on this. There's no way it could be much more than $500. I can't see someone buying a Taurus 1911 when there's something like a Colt in the same range. I'd buy a stock 1991A1 before a Taurus.

    If it is as good as the PT92AFS 17 + 1 Round 9MM it could be interesting?

    I like Taurus and have been happy with the firearms. I would probably buy one of them although I doubt it could replace my kimber

    If it's as good as all the others I've had experience with, I'd consider it. But you know me and Colts.[:D]

    i fail to see the problem with taurus making a 1911. i've owned some taurus guns in the past, and they were pretty good to me. the 92 i had couldn't hit the broad side of a barn, but it was reliable.

    Exactly, under $500.00 wouldn't be bad but I'm with you. You can buy a new 1991A1 or a used series 80 for the same money. I like some of the revolvers and the thing I really like about the company is their warranty. I do not own any but have shot em.

    Here is a complaint about their 92FS clones. The adjustable sights keep breaking off at the adjustment screw. They would fix it but after sending it in for the 3rd time with no permanent solution in sight I upgraded to a Baretta. [xx(]

    Taurus makes good products, and I am sure their 1911 clone will be fine. But I will hold judgement until I read some range reports.

    Taurus did a decent job cloning the Berretta 92, even though I thought it looked a little clunky. Taurus makes half decent revolvers, and revolvers are much more complex and harder to build than autos. The 1911 is an old design, and pretty simple. I think it is well within Taurus' capabilities. Brazil has a strong tradition of firearms manufacturing and its government supports the effort. Brazil is a huge country and has access to resources that rival the US in many ways. In a few years it will be obvious that Brazil is one of the leading firearms makers in the world.

    Ruger doesn't make any gun that they didn't design in-house. I don't think thats going to change.
