It IS a beauty of a pistol though!
With the exception of adjustable rear sights and the wood-grain handles, it pretty much looks like the PT 1911 from Taurus – but, then I haven’t shot this pistol yet so I’m not sure about all that.

I’ve read a lot of post where people were wanting a Black finish on their pistols. That just shows how times have changed.. 🙂
Back when I had the Colt Gov. Model 1911, it was black and I wanted a stainless finish – most people did. 😀
Personally, I like both. The pistol’s finish doesn’t keep me from wanting it or buying it. If it’s the caliber I want and I like the pistol – that’s pretty much all that matters to me..
