Gun Review: Taurus PT-1911 AR

Taurus PT-1911 AR - Gun DigestNow, if you love the 1911 platform, the PT-1911 AR is the gun for you. 

It's big and solid, with an accessory rail forged right into the dust cover. And shoot! This gun is every bit as smooth and accurate as guns costing twice as much.

The PT-1911 AR provides all the performance of a custom gun in package that won't break the bank.

The first thing I noticed right out of the box was the great trigger pull. Not too light, but very crisp.

The ambi safety is tough and the beavertail grip safety puts your hand right where it needs to be. The Novak sights are great and everything from the fit and finish to the checkering on the grip panels was outstanding.

Try as I might, I could not find anything to complain about as I looked at and fired this gun. The accuracy was all there. It functioned flawlessly with a smooth feel that said “custom gun” with every movement.
