    The new 1911

    Has anyone purchased or shot the new 1911 from Taurus ? It looks like a nice set up- but looks and performance are 2 different things........

    As far as I know it's not out yet.
    The list of goody's on it is very impressive.
    Supposedly a limited number will become available this summer.
    This thing was supposed to be out last year. I can't figure out why the delay in getting a 100 year old design out is happening.

    I do not believe it is actually out yet. It's been promised for a long time. I think they pushed it back to May again, but it is still not out as far as I know.

    I too am waiting with bated breath for the new Taurus 1911SS. But, my local gunshop owner says it's still not available.

    I have the Taurus PT-145 Millenium, (pre Pro) and I love it. I bought it used and did have a problem with it. I sent it in, and it was returned in two weeks with a new trigger/spring, slide adjustments and new slide release. No charge! It has been 100% reliable ever since. The PT-145 rides with me every day. I am thinking about getting the millenium Pro with the SS slide and picatinny rail.

    The PT-1911SS looks very nice though! 8)

    the word on the street is now that ALL Tauri are in short supply.
    The 1911 is nowhere in sight.

    I've wanted one since they showed it about a year ago. I got tired of waiting and have picked up 4 more 1911's since the announcement .

    On another forum, word is now that they are shipping just a tiny few this week - and it will then progress - who knows...

    I would not rush out and buy the first wave of em', if I were U.... I would wait - Look at all the headaches Sig has had w/ their 1911s.
