Why can't I find a 1911AL?

I've been looking to buy a Taurus 1911AL Aluminum frame. I've called around to some local gun shops and online, I saw one at Cabela's back in April and wish I had the money then to pick it up. I called them back and they don't have it anymore and don't know when/if they'll be back in stock. Anyone know where I can get one, preferably new.

The PT1911 AL were discontinued, the last ones that I know of were sold by Larry's Pawn about a year ago, you'll be very lucky if you can find one NIB, you should search the web under the used gun heading, Welcome aboard and good luck.

shoot safe, shoot straight, and have fun

I believe you'll be real pleased with the stainless PT1911, I've had mine since 08, and have put over 18K through her with all the original stock fire control parts, so much for MIM bad mouth, the PT1911 is the best 1911 in the $650 price range.

Yeah I want to stay in the $600-700 range and looked though what's available and the Taurus has the most "flair" to it. I also like the Remington and Para Ordnance because they are the most stock looking and provide a good base for upgrades.

Yea, but you'll have to spend more than a couple hundred to get the Remington or the Para to the level that the PT1911 comes stock with, with out the same quality of steel or length of warranty and for under $700 you can get the Wood Bull Head grip stainless model.

I have the Stainless PT1911 and the Remington R1. They are both really good guns I like the accuracy of the Remington and the feel of the Remington R1 a little better than the Taurus but they are both great guns and my Taurus is a very tight and well made gun.

I would check on GunBroker and Arms list. I saw a few, and if you are looking for a SS, I just bought one a few days ago on gunbroker NIB for $548.

Taurus is making the AL and AR pistols when ordered by the distributor, but not automatically sending any with pistol shipments. I don't know why. If the guy who answered the phone knew, he wouldn't say. So, unless you find one floating around, you'll have to find a Taurus dealer who will order it, and you have to be prepared to wait.
