Some parts of the US Military are still issuing it and other are still adopting it over more modern firearms. The most interesting part, to me at least, is the fact that this gun has remained relatively unchanged to this day. The core functionality, however, is just the same as John Browning created long ago. It’s a testament to his engineering genius, really. Secondly, the thing people love most about 1911s is that super sweet single-action only trigger. It needs to be short, smooth and super crisp. The Taurus trigger achieves this as well. It’s super short and weighs in at about a 5-pound pull. It feels no different to me than the Kimber’s triggers that I’ve shot before.
There is a benefit to having free access to a gun range any time you want, I guess. Either way, the accuracy seems to be there. This gun is definitely far more accurate than I am. This is a pretty heavy gun also. Weighing it at just over 2 pounds (unloaded), this completely stainless steel gun absorbs recoil very well and softens the pop of that beefy .45 ACP round.

Use the included bushing wrench to twist the barrel bushing counterclockwise. Hold your hand over the end to keep from launching the spring across the room. Remove the spring then twist the bushing in the other direction and remove. Pull the slide back until the takedown notch lines up with the slide release lever then remove the lever. Remove the slide and then pull out the full-length guide rod and then the barrel.
To reassemble, do everything in reverse and make sure the linkage on the barrel is lined up with the hole when you reinsert the slide release lever.
It’s not exactly an easy process and the full-length guide rod makes it a little more difficult as it requires the bushing wrench although you can take it apart without the wrench in a pinch. 3.5 out of 5

Even today, this 100-year-old design goes toe to toe with Glocks. There is an old belief that 1911s will only work with ball ammo and to avoid putting hollow points through them. That may be the case with some models but I tried various personal defense ammo in this gun and it ate them all happily. The polished ramps and chamber seem to do a lot to help that aspect. 5 out of 5
