I've been freeloading on this forum for a while and thought it was about time I registered.

I've got the three Taurus handgun and really like them, although my PT 1911SS is currently vacationing in Miami on Taurus's dime. Group size at 25 yards ranged from 8 inches to about 24 inches while shooting from sandbags. The 185 JHP grouped "best" with WWB 230 FMJ spraying all over the target.

The slide seems excessively loose, the barrel is .006 inch smaller than the ID of the bushing and the bolt face has a vertical ridge under the ejecter that leaves a dent in the fired case. Other than that it looks great and functions perfectly taking everything I feed it.

Does anyone else have a sloppy barrel/bushing fit?

Hey! A warm welcome from Tulsa Oklahoma!
I hope Taurus repairs your 1911SS with satisfaction. ;D

Welcome from just north of where your pistol is vacationing. Great folks and lots of info. Used to live just south of the border, (in Illinois). :)

Thanks to all for the welcome to the forum.

JR: You wouldn't be a Bears fan would you? The Bears got a big break when Farve retired. I'm sure they will have something for the Packers when they meet again.

Another MN welcome. Mine must be a closer fit. It groups well, 3-4", at 20-25 yards. Hope your gun is much better when you get it back.
