    Had mine for years. Still shoots better than my Springfield
    that I have much more money invested in.

    I have a PT1911SS. After thousands of rounds through it, there has never been an issue with it. I probably shoot it more accurately than any of my other handguns. I have had my eye on the PT1911 Officer’s model though.

    Just depends on that aprticular weapon in my expereince!
    I don't have a Commander but do own 4 Governemnt size PT1911.
    2 were good out of the box, the other two were problem children needing to return to the mothership, one of them twice.
    as you have already purchased the weapon then take that baby out and see how it does for you.
    then you know for sure!

Everything I've read and heard - it's a 1911; shoots well. Please let us know how it shoots from your perspective.
    HMMMM??
    Now that you mention that--I don't have a 1911 long slide, and I do have room now that I got my new safe???
    my favorite Commander is the para LTC , which is an alloy frame, wonderful tote pistola!

    • Atleast one of you asked for some pics, hopefully I uploaded them correctly. If so these are the best I can do for now anyway. Working a lot of hours at the moment. Haven’t shot it yet or added the new rosewood grips to it either. Haven’t even stripped it down and cleaned the shipping grease off yet. Here she is though. Came with a barrel bushing tool, lock, manual, and one 8 rebound magazine that is stamped both “Taurus” and “Mec-Gar”.

    Do the Commanders have the Taurus Security System lock in the hammer?

    If you’ll tell me what I’m looking, like what the security thing would look like if it has it and I can check.
