I have had my PT-1911 2 years now. According to Taurus its date of Manufacture is March 2011; I think that is kind of cool being the same month 100 years later the 1911 was adopted into the military.

I am happy to report that I have not had a single problem with the PT-1911 in the 2 years I had it, and not a single problem with the 2 cheap Pro-mags I also got. I would estimate the round count to be near 1600 rounds most of which have been fed from the Pro-mags. The only modification I have made is to add the Bullshead grips I ordered from Taurus. I just like wood grips.

I could not be more happy with the accuracy of this gun. Don't contribute to this section much so I thought I would let others know that my PT-1911 is a great gun. :)

That is great news, i just purchased my PT1911 and like you purchased 4 Pro-mags, new for $48 on e-bay one Pro-mag $19.98 from Academy Sporooting rangets and one Chip McCormick classic from a local shooting range. I have only had a problem with one Pro-mag, when i load it with 8 rounds, it binds up when you insert the mag and will not drop out fully loaded. The Chip McCormick is the best of them all :)

I've had mine for 5 and half years, and probably have something like 5500 rounds through it. It still runs like a champ. The only issues I've ever had was with a crappy batch of reloads that bogged down my brother in law's HK and Kimber as well. It really seems like Taurus got it right with this one, and I'm glad to see so many holding up well.
