I saw a used Taurus Millinium .45 auto yesterday. I think the model is PT145, but I'm not sure. Anywho, it was tagged at $309 and I asked the smith to show it to me. Light weight, 10 rounds, so far, so good. Then I asked him to take it apart for me. He had to mess with it to get it apart and then he had to fight with it to get it back together.
I confess, I'm biased. I've never seen anybody that KNOWS HOW to strip and reassemble autos fight with a Colt or a Ruger.
The guy's supposed to be a smith and do light service work and repairs. Is this fighting the dang thing back together a red flag about the quality of the pistol or is he just 10 thumbed? I don't wanna sink 3 and change in it and then be cussin' it every time I strip it for cleaning.
By the way, I just put a post on the Shooter's board about in house warranties on used guns. This is the same guy. Ya' might wanna read that post.
