I guess I stumbled on the way to get it going. Purchased PT1911 in August- 07. Been feeding it regularly and hope it grows. Now if I can get Taurus to fix a couple of issues I will be in .45 paradise.

Welcome aboard from the sandbar.
There's a plethora of Taurus info here. Maybe those little quirks with your PT 1911 have already been discussed in the 1911 or Gun smithing section. Give them a look-see. If you can't find what you're looking for, try to run a "Search".
Jump in. Enjoy.

Issues.....hummmmm,,,,,well there is conciderable abrasion of the finish on the left side of the grip safety and the left side of the trigger from poor QC on the inside of the frame where obviously metal burrs were left from manufacture. Also double fires, emptied a full mag. in 4 trigger pulls the first time, second time it double fired one time and I found the trigger to be at 1/2 cock with a live round chambered. It's a shame that the folks at Taurus think that the spot on the Heinies front sight is where the shot should hit and not the top of the sight bar (as is the aim point when no dot is on a front sight), impossible to shoot center mass when the sights are machined to shoot that aim point. Doubt anything will be done for that. Ships to Miami on Monday.
