Well I went to the range today with my new Taurus 1911SS and shot 2, I said shot 2 clips and my thumb safety fell out out of the gun! And what was really embarrasing was my friends admiring my 1911 before we shot and they said they wanted one too.....But not now! I will go back to my gun dealer to get it fixed and selling it for 500.00 just to get rid of it! Heck my norinco 1911 is hands down better than this,,lol,, So I had to put the taurus back in the case and shoot the rest of my 250rds out of my TRUSTY Norinco! Go team Taurus!
