I'm thrilled with the Taurus 1911 9mm model 11911019. It feels solid in hand and broke down for the initial cleaning pretty much like a typical 1911. I only have a couple thousand rounds through it, but had absolutely no issues. The pattern was tighter than expected without any adjustments to the sights. My only regret is that I probably should have bought two of these Taurus 9mm as I'd imagine these will go like hotcakes as folks realize the great value these are. I finally bought the second Taurus 1911 9mm a few weeks later and it handles and shoots just like the first one. I was right about the value - These don't seem to stay on the store shelves very long.
