    It's a Taurus PT1911, born on 3/17. It has rubber grips and the dot sights. It comes in the original box with manual and bushing wrench. Shows very, very little wear but does have a very light scratch on the port side. It comes with the original magazine as well as a Wilson Combat magazine.

    I don't hardly see how it's worth under $500 when you see those Filipino guns going for as much or more feature for feature than this gun.
    But, that's why I'm here asking the experts.

    *EDIT*. I found this stock on an online gun auction site:

    Taurus Full Size 1911 .45 ACP Semi Auto Pistol 5 in. Barrel

    He has 3 for $719 each.

    I would say at least $800. Just a guess on my part.

    Dang, I got a Taurus 1911 in 9mm, I will let go any time for $800.;) Any offers, huh . . huh?

    I am sitting here looking at the 2020 Edition of the Standard Catalog of Firearms and this is what it says about a PT1911
    NIB 675
    Exc 550
    VG 425
    Good 300
    Fair 200

    They list several different versions but all of them have the same values, except for the Commander and Officer models which are slightly less.

    375 - 475 at gunshops in my area. Taurus usually sits on the shelf for a while.

    I think I would consider mine in VG condition.
    Y'all have seen the pics, wouldn't you agree?

    My 2017 catalog states the same prices and applies to the blued or stainless model.
