    How to destroy your credibility in one sentence. Didn't even watch the rest of the video. Why listen to someone who says something that stupid?

    But getting to the OP's point, I think it's true that Taurus is getting more respect and appreciation in general these days. And the good thing it, they are earning it. From what we're hearing around here, I'd say Taurus is on an upswing.
    I'd agree with that. My two M605's are great, and so is my G2C. Can't say enough about my PT92 (even though it is of older manufacture). Now, I'm on the hunt for the G3...I want one.

    MY question and observations will be "how long will this upward trend remain?"
    I at one time was the owner of 10 taurus firearms, the reason-- because of a 1987 model 99 that I have owned since it was new.
    the ones after that were not near as well produced ( 5 of the ten were returned to the mothership) a couple twice.
    at the time of my original 99 purchase customer service, parts and I believe quality of the weapon systems was in line with many other companies, fast forward and In my case taurus had very likely the worst customer service in the firearms business and well as part availability.
    soo I observe for a long time before I buy again. just my experience and 2 cents on the matter, again going back to 1987 and 10 weapons from the company.

    I think their "upward trend" will continue, as long as they concentrate on what models are strong for them, kick all the other circus side-show types to the curb, and continue to build upon what works for them. They have always been taking the attitude of "what zany new design" can we throw against the wall to see if it sticks...this don't work for anybody.

    They also need to make sure they keep tabs on their QA department, and keep holding their feet to the fire...don't let duds leave the factory!

    My PT1911 came with two factory mags. I never bought more because I already had a bin full of 1911 mags in the safe. Aftermarket and GI. Never had an issue with any of them. As a matter of fact, I usually use GI mags at the range. Yeah, I'm old fashioned, but I'm an old guy.

    I've found single stack mags to be quite reliable. That doesn't mean that I don't have double stack mags that are reliable, but that I've had more problems with double stacks in the past.

    yep!
    same in my case, I must have 40-50 1911 45acp mags, many 38 Super mags and about 8-10 10 MM mags .
    all different brands of manufacture mags, after market mags and I can remember only one 1911 mag that ever gave me a problem and it was a colt mag.
    my CZ and Tanfoglio mags are made by Mec -gar and so no problems out of those 12-14 mags either and they are double stacks.
    the only real bad experience I have had with any mag was pro-mag and that was several years back.

    A good question, but it doesn't affect purchasing decisions today at all.

    My first colt was bought in what consider their worst period ever. The scallops behind the trigger have visible tool marks. I have a Rock Island 1911 that's finished to a higher standard. But that Colt shoots like nobody's business. And today they are punching out firearms that are second to none.

    Every manufacturer has ups and downs. At least when Taurus is down, you're usually not dropping a grand to find that out.
