    2 problems out of 5 pistols is totally unacceptable and a very serious problem.

    The biggest complaint I have with my Taurus is that the firing pin block is impossible to get out. It literally feels jammed in there. It doesn't come out period. I called Taurus and they said it was innappropraite for me to remove the firing pin block and extractor. I told them it is an essential part of cleaning the gun. They told me it would void the warranty if I removed the firing pin block and extractor. LOL, really Taurus?

    Occasionally we do hear similar remarks about Taurus' version of Colt's 'series 80' firing pin safety system. In a Colt, after removing the firing pin stop, the firing pin and its spring, you need to move the extractor backwards by only a fraction, which releases the plunger and its spring.

    Is this how Taurus makes its own system, or does it do it a-la Kimber, i.e. by removing the components from the top, after removing the rear sight?
    Too many people miss the silver lining because they're expecting gold.

    I can't confirm but I think Taurus stakes their firing pin stop rather than fitting them. I can't see another reason why the firing pin stop feels jammed in there. It's also possible that the firing pin stop is locked in place by the rear sight. I have two Kimbers and have never had to remove the rear sight to remove the firing pin stop or firing pin. The Kimbers are way higher quality as well.

    I have removed the firing pin stop to replace a broken extractor which Taurus sent 3 extractors free of charge. Now to remove FPS i did need a brass punch to tap it out, once out i filed the dimples down on the FPS which i believe are from the molding process. once the dimples are file down a little, the FPS removes as easy as any another manufacturers FPS.

    Don't own a Taurus 1911 but have 2 of their other autos (9mm and .45) bought new, and 2 of their revolvers (.357) bought used.

    Haven't had any issues with any of them.
