Recently purchased a Taurus 1911. The gun was NIB and SS Model with rails. Also got about 100 rds of Sellier and Bellot from PARA Lahore. The gun felt great in hand however would take getting used to stripping and assembling, I did not like this part comparing it especially to my Beretta 92FS and Styer M9 A1. However the weapon rocked on the range and gave me 40 out of 50 on an average at 25ms. I really liked the natural pointability, recovery and no issue of FTF or FTE. However I need to add a few extra magzines which at the time of purchase were not available with PARA Lahore, I would really appreciate if some member can comment on the extra magzines availability in Lahore , Rawalpindi or Islamabad. Sorry for being unable to load the pictures, I failed in this regard
Overall a great gun in its current price range of Rs 75000 approx. It has many match grade parts; and it has a smooth action and it is a great 45; love the Henie sights. Planning to keep it ready for carrying in the vehicle and HD

Congratulations on your great purchase Badar Sahib.. stripping will become easier with practice, specially replacing back the slide stop & with S&B and Prvi Partizan ammo, this beauty really rocks.. excellent choice for HD.

Congrats on a great purchase badar sahib. It a best choice in .45's. Great gun for both SD/HD and range. 1911 have been here for over a 100 year and ppl r still winning matches with them. Great gun. Congrats again.

I saw this gun in local market in Karachi ... but the price he is asking we a lot more that what Baderjanjua has quoted.... i was asked the quoted price of 90k. The Ammo was Rs.100 per piece....

I think Guns in Lahore are comparably cheap.

PT 1911 AR SS-1 in 75k... man congrats... thats an awesome buy! :)

I went to PARA a couple of weeks back and they had a PT-1911 BT. Didnt want that one. Wanted an SS. Revisited them after a couple of days and they didnt even have the BT one. Said they'd have em in mid March. Strange they got em early.

I got mine in 90k from Hira. I know a bit expensive. The gun shouldve been around 80 k. But nevertheless, I didnt have time not inclination to waste it on stupid bargaining and just paid the guy what he asked for. Had to get back to the office and prepare my lecture for next class. Ha!

Excellent piece I would say. Brand new, untouched and sealed. I'd say it was worth every dime.

Congrats again on your buy mate ;)

DoktorSb, i guess your 1911 is with rails...still a treat to own 2 years ago. Wondering if 1911 from taurus are preferred in the classic style without rails....

@ Mr. Zakir

Really? So the prices of Taurus are going down each year in Pakistan? Meaning quick depletion in resale value. Thats heartbreaking...

@ Mr. Maximus

First of all mate, I like ur nick! :) I also got mine with rails.. thats what AR stands for I guess. ;) I prefer Taurus with rails.

Taurus with rails is good if you are in SWAT :) , no good holster is available for AR model. its different but I like without rails as its easier to keep in holster but the price is very nice.

Rails model is also good if you are planning on installing a dot, which I am very much planning to. I found a pricey Galco hip holster for the railed model and its fits perfectly. That is how I carry this baby. But when I say pricey, I mean PRICEY (20k) ;)

dot can be installed without rails, rails is good when u want to install tactical light.

I bought a Blade Tech Holster with tech lok for 1911 AR, its still brand new, I use a leather one now, so if someone wants to buy it, I will let it go for the price I got it for.

It is with rails , 1911 was new at that time with only few pieces . Now with .45 ammo cheaply available Many people are buying . It is one of the better guns that Taurus has produced . Any one who has bought one is happy with it .

Safeer bhai as for the feedback, excellent mags sir, and a great friend of yours also, very very nice and quite the knowledge he has got about firearms. But I don't think he has any more mags left that he wants to part with.

Safeershah bhai, i think its pretty difficult to find 1911 grips with laser dot in PK. and even if there were any, they'd be really really expensive. i was talking about the cheap Chinese tactical light w/ laser dot installments which u can find easily for around a couple of ks. if there is another way which i am unaware of, plz lemme know :)

Nice.

Like I mentioned before, I got mine for 90K. The model I was after wasn't available anywhere else (Accessory Rail Stainless Steel) so I just paid em what they asked for. No regrets here :)

Great buy sir. I got mine as well. I loved it's accuracy and it would be great to keep such a gun for SD. I don't have the AR model as holsters are rare for them. I got the 45 ammo from hira arms. The make of the bullets is armscor. I would suggest you to search for armscor on the internet. Loved the henie sights.. I have also softened the triggers of all my 1911's.. It can be
dangerous as well. As a friend of mine did this and faced a situation of auto fire at the range..
Good luck with your 1911.. Stay in touch.. Regards,
