    1911 in 40 S&W

    So what I'd like to know is what became of all the 1911's that Taurus was suppoedly producing in 40 S&W that I had been waiting for going back to like 2004??? Several calls to Taurus which all resulted in me being told they were being made and would be released "soon" and the 2006 brochure which showed them in 45, 40 and 9 in both black and SS. Well, where are they? If they didn't get released what became of the units they built? I'm sure they didn't go to the trouble of producing all that info and a nice color brochure with specs on them if none were made.

    The annual SHOT and NRA shows are the giveaway that something is about to come out. Even then, they many times make modifications to designs (ex: PT709) or drop an idea completely.

    All I can say is, hang in there brother. I personally think that you'll see a 9mm 1911 before the 40 cal, but you never know. All I can tell you is, I haven't heard a peep about the gun you are asking about.

    "I haven't heard a peep about the gun you are asking about"

    page 17 of the 2006 catalog lists multiple variants including calibers in 45, 40, 38 sup and 9mm

    Like I said - things change. It's not official until you see it in the showroom case.

    Re: 1911 in 40 S&W

    Granted, but the bigger question I'd like know is where did all the units they must have produced get stashed? They would have had to have been in production because of the 3 times I actually spoke with someone at Taurus I was told each time that the 1911 / 40 would be released "in the next quarter of the year"... you don't hand fit machine parts for thousands of pistols in a short amount of time, unless there was a whole lot of smoke being blown up my butt when they told me that.
    On another note though, I have since bought the 27/7 LS in 40 as I have no real single reason for necessarily wanting a 1911 model, I just wanted a 5"+ barreled 40 now I have one and love it. This thing shoots the same way shot after shot without exception year after year (I've had it since 07) and I can't flaw it whatsoever.
