I'm one of the people that don't like rails, I don't need them and think they're ugly. Awhile back I bought a PT 38S and it arrived with a rail but I tried to like it but finally sold it. I liked the gun and caliber alot and later decided to buy another one if I could have the rail removed so I spoke with Larna from Ford's Custom Gun Refinishing (www.fordsguns.com) and they said they could remove it. Ended up only charging $50 for the rail removal plus the cost of a refinishing.

Here's a before photo with the factory black finish and big ass rail. Sorry my photos aren't very good.

And the after photos with the rail removed and a new finish, brushed chrome flats with matte chrome rounds. Looks much better than the photos. I accidently broke the front sight, have to call Taurus and order a new one. I think it turned out great.

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.) :mad: I have a PT917 also with one of those UGLY ASS rails, I plan to send it to Fords to get it fixed :D 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.
