Bought this gun in May 2013 I've only put 200 rounds through it. This is a great 1911 for the price, has a Taurus hammer lock, very easy to modify. I had an issue with the magazines when I installed a Wilson's Combat flared magwell. My local gunsmith solved the issue by shaving down the excess plastic which does not damage the reliability of the mags. This is a very accurate pistol. I can put all 8 under a half dollar, firing one handed from 50 feet. Taurus sells a holster through IMI that is specific for this gun. Other hard plastic holsters I tried did not work with the picatinny rail, which is lower on the frame than competitors 1911's. For the price this is one of the best budget 1911's I've used.
