I have been meanning to procure a Taurus 1911 for some time now but these licences keep evading me.. Would any be intrested in getting one. Dealer would be willing to import it for 80-85 k.. If we have more ppl he might bring the price down. Let me know your thoughts .

@Acciprone Bro, how is the availability of 45 ammo, someone told me its a hard getter and above R.s 100 per round, which would mean 80000+50000 for 500 rounds just to be emergency safe! What say? The ammo availability is my main worry in going for this gun, I otherwise dearly want, instead of another 9mm.

.45 ammo is chronically short. It's priced at Rs. 100 / round. Hp's for Rs. 250.

Availability is also quite low. More of a Enthusiast/SD round in Pakistan now than a sport one.

@Mitho If you must go for .45 then get a original used 1911. It should cost you anywhere from 30k to 100k.

Nothing is better in .45 than 1911 in the sub 100k range. Overall Hk .45 is the best however too expensive at 400k +.

Chinese versions in 45 are a better alternative in my opinion, atkeast they are more reliable then the Taurus. Within Taurus range 45 is their latest ad more prone to problems.

guys the thread tarted as 1911 import!
The gun if other than Taurus would have been a hot. Taurus does not have a good reputation specially in Pakistan hot weather. Thats a review I read sometime back in Janes. As the weapon itself develops certain heating related issues and thats the reason its not even recommended as standard Law Enforecement Firearm.

knock knock.........@accriprone............ would love to join in with you, but will have to wait till my next bonus i.e in Jan.:)
You know I am a Taurus PT-111 user, and have had NO problems whatsoever till date. btw my meter has crossed 2000 rounds and not a single FTE or FTF till date Mashallah. Simply love the Taurus 1911, but all in good time. So if you can wait that long, count me in.

Cheers

@Bullseye.. The way these licences are going it might end up being that long. I have the PT 609 and PT 99 no issues so far for me either

@bull eye

Bullseye
20-05-2009, 01:54 PM
@mitho..
Its a 9mm. Paid 56k for it 2 years back. Capacity is 10 rounds.

@accri.......
then i guess we'll go for the 1911 together. I have been hearing a lot of complaints about the Taurus, but my experiance is otherwise however limited that maybe.

i h. ave tarus 1911 have shot about 200 rounds with it no problem so far . ithink tarus 1911 and pt99 r good weapons having no problems so far with them . initially wanted to buy a orginal colt 1911 but none was availble heard of series 70 in jamrud guy was asking 160k . serbian rounds r better then the old american rounds
