    Happy to say I went out and got a new Taurus 1911 .45...been wanting one of these guns for a very long time and I found one that is custom and has a great color combo on it. Its probably the first gun I have ever bought that I immediatly didnt want to add something too...

    You got the PT1911 lite. Very nice guns IMO. I have a PT from when they very first released. Good shooters.

    That is a great way for anyone to start their week. Nice gun....enjoy it. Don't be too alarmed if you initially have some feeding problems. Brand spanking new 1911's can be a little finicky until broken in.

    On a very nice weapon. Love the contrast of the black and brushed.

    I own a Millenium Pro PT-111 in 9mm and a .380 TCP. I like both of them very much, and have had zero operational problems with either one of them. Good Luck and enjoy!

    I found it at a Gun Show south of Nashville, TN. The guys who customized it are out of Cleveland, TN and they used Duracoat for this color combo. Thanks for all the compliments guys :D
