    They are nice weapons! I carry mine every now and then. They are a little heavy but after all they are all steel. Mine shoots very well and is very accurate. Hope you enjoy it.

    Nice looking pistol. Feels real good to carry a 1911, go ahead try it. You'll never want to go back. Good choice in holster also. That's my OWB holster of choice.

    Nice grips. I'll bet that you're bigger than me and I carry my PT 1911 more than my other guns. It's all about the holster. I use a tuckable IWB from Little Bear Holsters. That flat 1911 just disappears.

    Very nice. At one time, I was thinking of getting a 1911 and was going to make it a Taurus just as an intro. I later changed my mind and went with an XD45ACP, but the 1911 is definitely classy looking.

    I replaced the stock hammer with an EMC Web Blued Hammer..got it from Brownell's

    EMC : Web Hammer, Blued (100-004-490) - World's Largest Supplier of Firearm Accessories, Gun Parts and Gunsmithing Tools

    it matches the Taurus Duo-Tone PERFECTLY!!
