Don't you just love when things get better and better? I know I do. Take the Washington Nationals for example. I think we would all love to forget the low point that was 2009, but we've seen nothing but improvements since then.

Lately, it seems that Taurus International has been taking some notes from the Nationals as we've seen nothing but improvement after improvement from the Brazilian-based arms manufacturer. Look no further than their new 1911 Series for the proof, which has just enjoyed the addition of the wonderful new Taurus 1911BHW. Check it out for yourself today!

The Taurus 1911BHW is, as it should be, a true 1911 in that it is a single-action, semi-automatic, short-recoil operated pistol chambered for the powerful .45 ACP cartridge. Boasting a fresh take on the iconic design introduced by John Moses Browning more than 100 years ago, the Taurus 1911BHW is just one in a new series that represents Taurus International's first take on the platform. In addition to a number of features that are both modern and practical, the Taurus 1911BHW ships with two eight-round magazines inside of a hard plastic carrying case.

The Taurus 1911BHW is now available from Keepshooting.com. Pick one up today for $682.37.

Taurus International Manufacturing, Inc. has quite the interesting history. It began in 1939, when a small tool and die company was founded in Porto Alegre, Brazil. The company began by producing small tools designed for use with various manufacturing processes. In the years that followed, the company branched out to include divisions focused on metals manufacturing, plastics, body armor and, most importantly, firearms. That company is Forjas Taurus, what we commonly refer to as Taurus International.

Since its inception, Taurus International has had ties to both Smith & Wesson and Beretta, which allowed the company access to information related to the design, manufacture and tooling of some of the world's most popular firearm platforms – including Beretta's 92 series. Since then the company has learned a thing or two about arms production and is now one of the largest manufacturers of small arms in the world.

Today, Taurus International offers a wide range of products, from revolvers to both steel- and polymer-framed pistols. The company now seeks to bolster their lineup with their new Taurus 1911 Series, a series of pistols with designs that are based on the crisp action provided by the legendary single-action design originally exhibited in John Browning's M1911. The Taurus 1911 Series is no run-of-the-mill 1911 platform. Each pistol, including the new Taurus 1911BHW, is jam packed with practical features that make it truly worth your consideration.

With the design of their new 1911 Series, Taurus International sought to produce a 1911 that held the potential to eventually become the standard against which all others are measured. By producing the pistol with hammer-forged frames, slides and barrels and hand-fitting and tuning each with 19 standard features, Taurus International has crafted a high-quality 1911 – what they are calling "an unbeatable gun that is also an unbeatable value".

The Taurus 1911BHW features a five-inch, hammer-forged stainless steel barrel and an overall length of 8 1/2 inches. The hammer-forged steel frame and slide both feature a blued finish to protect the components from rust and corrosion, and are joined by bull's head walnut grips for a pistol that weighs in at a hefty yet manageable 38 ounces. Black polymer grips are also included. Interesting is the fact that the Taurus 1911BHW also includes the Taurus Security System, an integral locking system designed to provide the pistol with enhanced security. Other features include: a ventilated trigger, the iconic beavertail grip safety, an ambidextrous manual thumb safety and a Heinie® front sight alongside Bomar® rear sights. As noted, each pistol includes two eight-round magazines for an "8+1" capacity.

Best of all, the Taurus 1911BHW comes with the Taurus Unlimited Lifetime Repair Policy. Taurus International has pledged to repair, free of charge, any firearm manufactured or imported by the company. For details, visit the official website of Taurus International.
