Dear PG members,
I am looking to buy a new pistol in .45 ACP caliber, I have my mind set on buying a Taurus PT1911, however i would like to know if there are any other options as well in this category. Also kindly advise me about the cost of buying this and from where i should purchase it.

The other option can be Zigana 1911.

Semperfi, please update your location for seniors to guide you better..

Depending on the budget you can consider the Dan Wesson which retails for just under 275k.. the pt 1911 is brilliant and in Karachi a NIB one is around 110 without rails and 125 with, depending upon your bargaining skills my friend bought one without rails for 95 NIB..

The zigana 1911/taurus/dan have all been reviewed here, please go through the forums to have a better idea of their performances..

Am not sure about the Colt, have not seen a used one in karachi for sometime.. but imagine it would be around 150k (just a guess)

Taurus PT 24/7 would be nice and good for cc

@shahroze, i think he is asking about a .45 calibre, does 24/7 come in .45 calibre, i was under the impression the pt 145 and 1911 were offered in .45..

Please correct me if i am wrong..

Brother Taurus PT1911 is really a good gun... If you are in Lahore, you'll be able to get it cheaper.... As there is one PT1911 AR SS available at National Traders (Fakhr-e-Alam) Neela Gumbad Lahore which is new... Saw it yesterday, I believe the demand is 100K... You can check with him and if he asks for more, do let me know I'll request him as he is known to me...

@Semperfi
Brother I went to National Traders yesterday evening as I wanted to buy a magazine for one of my handguns and asked him if he still had the PT1911 with him... He has it but hasn't put it on the display bcoz according to him "Yaar ye akhri piece hai, display mein har koi aa kar cherta hai"... He is asking for 100K but said "tumey kitney ka chaiye" which makes me sure that I'll be able to knock off few Ks from him...

@mudassir
Bro my location is in karachi. Thanks for the advice, I know buying a Colt here is impractical as they are too expensive and mostly found used and I never buy used firearms, about Zigana I'm concerned about long term reliability, havent heard many people buying it.

the stoeger cougar 8000 is also an option in .45 ACP . but personally i feel if its a .45 it should be a 1911 :) Norinco 1911 is also in the market

If you want a 1911 (which is a must have gun for every gun enthusiast) then go for the one whichever suits your wallet (Chinese, Zigana, Taurus, Colt, DW etc etc) otherwise a CZ 97B is also a wonderful handgun in .45ACP, provided it fits your hands.

CZ97 n 1911Taurus falls in same price range category at present time.

Brother it all depends upon your budget and model. If u r interested in 1911, taurus is a good choice in pretty good budget and if you are only interested in .45 irrespective of its mechanism CZ 97B is equally good.

Dan Wesson and pt 1911 are good choices haven't used a zigana so can't comment upon that . Colt would be hard to find in good condition so I would buy a new gun rather a beat up weapon specially if I have to carry it or used for HD

@ Ameer, Avais & Aquarius
What is the approx price of CZ 97B? and where is it available? Is the performance better than PT1911?
I like the PT1911 design compared to the CZs simple aesthetics, But if the performance gap is a lot then i might reconsider....

Achilles bro this link has been blocked, I dont know why.

But as far as as I remember its the same Video when you were firing (hitting) a metal/steel target with your CZ 97B from approximately 50M across the river.. really enjoyed that video clip.

Brother I guess its the Youtube thats been blocked, not the video... You'll be able to watch the video once Youtube is activated by the authorities....

Taurus PT-145 is no doubt ever green .45 pistol if u are looking for a hangun in .45 gauge under the budget of 100K. My advice and votes are for PT-145 and the 24/7 .45(glock look alike). both are under 100K
