    Help with what series 1911 I have?

    Hello all I am not a 1911 guy at all but decided to jump in and buy one. I bought one and just trying to figure out what series it is so I can look into buying some parts for it. Name:  Taurus 1911 (1).jpg

    I believe all new Taurus 1911's have the firing pin block, which makes them series 80's.

    And if you want the trigger lighter, the one it came with is fine, you need to go
    on youtube or get a smithing book to lighten trigger pull!

    I learned to not give instructions on doing this kind of work, if something happens to you or someone else
    I do not want to be responsible...................

    Use the search feature I did a thread on 1911 trigger jobs, I think it was about 4 years ago. I have since quit using my old Ed Brown sear jig and now use the TR Jig. Who did you buy the pistol from ? Looks like they did a melt job on the slide but left the frame alone, may have changed out parts already.

    yea looks like new re-blue job as well, No PT1911 in modern history has that kind of finish on it!
    and yes as other have mentioned IF it a Taurus 1911 it is a so called series 80, although that really has a lot more differences than just the firing pin safety, you might want to research all this before starting work on it.

    IIRC, the current 1911s that Taurus makes/sells are just 1911s not PT1911s. IINM, only PT1911s have the forged frame, Taurus 1911s do not. Both are Series 80. Really cool blue color scheme.

    For the guys who don't know, that's a factory finish on that 1911. I have one of my own. They also have a commander version with a rainbow/prizm finish on the slide. Looks nice. Along with that they have cerakote American Flag, Desert Sand, and OD Green options too. For the PT92 guys, they have a polished blue slide version of that, too.
