    have built up around $500 in my papal from ebay commerce... went cruising the gun racks to see what jumped out at me: found a Taurus pt1911 new (blued) at a local pawn shop. $525
    Everything I 've read says they are the cat's a$$. Even sounds like a decent price which is surprising ( this guy is usually a bit high). Any opinions on this 1911??? Should I snap it up before anybody else gets a chance too ?( it'll take 3 or 4 days to move the cash from paypal to my local account....b::

    MSRP is $703 (from their website) http://www.taurususa.com/products/product-details.cfm?id=59&category=Pistol

    I haven't seen what they're going for, and for that matter haven't fired one, but I have heard good things and this seems like a good price.

    Don't go off my assumption though, I'm sure a couple folks on here that are current with the market will chime in and give you a good recommendation.

    My neighbor has one and he likes it pretty well. He did change the grips on it. That is a pretty good price too.

    Gonna sleep on it, it's taken me awhile of horse trading to build this "surplus"...

    Tango have only consistantly heard one complaint on the PT1911 and that is they have an inferior finish on them .

    That is a pretty good price as they have been rising as the weapons have begun to prove themselves in the market .

    I would grab it and do what I have done with blued guns , that is put a few coats of car wax on them to protect it .

    I always enjoy spending my "Mad-money" on guns or ammunition....seems quite appropriate.
