Owners: How well does the gold accents hold up on the special edition taurus?

2126 Views 6 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  Schmidlin
I'm thinking about getting a PT911 for my first hand gun(or the Beretta Px4 storm), and saw the special edition with the rosewood grips and gold accents was only $30 more than the SS. My question is how well does the "gold" accents hold up in the long run? I would rather get the SS if the gold is going to chip away after owning it for a while. Thanks for any input

It's just like anything else that's gold plated. If you take good care of it and don't use it alot, it will last a long time. But, if you use it frequently, and carry it, I would advice getting the stainless. If not just for the fact that gold on a carry gun would make me giggle.
The hammer is not plated like the other parts, and where it contacts the firing pin, is subject to a tiny bit of wear. The other parts seem to lasting just fine on mine. I got the pearl, a pair of standard black grips came with it for shooting. Looks good with either.

Gold is holding up fine on my PT1911 & my PT945
get the stoeger cougar instead of the px storm. Its still a beretta but 200bucks cheaper. Just a word of advice
