PT1911 .38 Super; no longer offered?




After much prodding from friends and trying one of their .38 Super 1911s, I got a jones for one. I check Taurus's site and see....NO .38 Supers listed!
They offer a 1911 in 9mm alright...but no more .38 Super?
I'm calling 'em tomorrow; figures just when I want one they drop it.
(I know CDNN has them in stainless or blue with drug-cartel gold accents, but I'd really prefer a blued one without the bling)

for the price they list them at I'd buy the blinged one and polish the cheapo goldish plating off the small parts

Not a bad idea--at that rate I could have two of 'em!

Been craving a Taurus 1911 with different ammo choices? Well, the wait is over. We're now offering our popular 1911 model with 9+1 (11+1 with extended magazine) capacity in both 9mm and .38 Super. Want more? The new 1911 HC gives you four more shots than the old model with a 12+1 capacity of powerful .45 ammunition. With all these choices it's easy to see why Taurus is quickly becoming the leader in high-performance 1911s.

am i reading this right when it says 12+1 of powerful 45 acp?
which model is that on their website?

The HC has yet to make an appearance. It may have even been dropped from contemplation, like their plan to offer .40 s and w in a 1911.

Picked up 2012 catalog at the LGS recently, was looking for info and pricing on the 856. No 38 super listed, just 45 and 9mm. So, if ya want one, prolly gonna have to get the stainless or blue polished w/ gold accents, they are available many places for good prices. However, if you dont want to spend time or money un-pimping it (over 300 bucks at C&S to buy a replacement for each gold part...plunger tube is gold as well) then I would consider buying a Rock Island GI in 38 super.

Mine was polished blue with gold accents. A few minutes in the blast cabinet with the gold parts took care of it.
