I've recently (past four months) purchased, new, two 1911 type pistols. The first was a Taurus PT1911 5 inch blue steel 45acp. It shot fine out of the box. No misfeeds, ftfs or anything, but the safety didn't work properly. I sent it back and bought an RIA Tactical 45acp the same day. The RIA has been flawless from the first mag full. It fed, fired and ejected cor-bon, wwb, cast 200gr semi wad cutters ranging from 700 to 950 fps. The Taurus is back and I will probably sell it as surplus as I prefer the RIA.
