I too hate those rails, I am glad to see someone out there that can remove them. Taurus has made a BIG MISTAKE by making the PT911 and PT940 with rails on them. And I called the other day and talked with a service rep at Taurus and he said that was the way they were going to make them from now on, (or untill they want sell anymore.) I have a PT917 also with one of those UGLY ASS rails, I plan to send it to Fords to get it fixed If any you guys out there want one without the rail made into it, You had better have started yesterday trying to find what you'er wanting, cause when the older ones are gone thats it. Just thought you might like to know.
