That's the replacement that they promised me for my PT 145 before they said that they weren't producing pistols in 45 ACP anymore. Somewhere around that time, 3 years ago, I recall someone stating that the trigger wasn't as good as the PT 145. I might think a used gun might be a tad cheaper than that. The ammo might have a 15.00 value. You may want to check with Taurus and learn what warranty might be if it needed repair..and what they would replace it with should it not be repairable.
