The Taurus 1911 is a series of semi-automatic large-frame pistols chambered for .38 Super, 9mm and .45 ACP. Taurus’s 1911 is a replica of the famous military pistol made by Colt. Taurus is known for making affordable handguns and replicas.

The Taurus 1911 series features hammer forged ordnance grade steel frames, slides and barrels. When a barrel is hammer forged barrel it means that a machine carefully pushed a mandrel through the bore to carve grooves into it. Ordnance grade steel offers superior durability, and is especially advantageous when firing heavy cartridges. It also has a vented trigger for reduced weight.

Taurus 1911s are also equipped with Heinie brand front and rear straight-8 sights, which uses a blade front sight with a tritium dot and a notch rear sight with a single tritium dot. In order to correctly use straight-8 sights, the shooter must align the dots vertically so it forms a figure “8”. But it is also available with Novak night sights, which allow the shooter to see under low light conditions.

The 1911 is available with a stainless steel or blued finish. Sub-models are also available with a Picatinny rail for easy mounting of accessories (add about $30). However, the .38 Super variant has been discontinued.
