What do these seem to be selling for these days?

I only ask, because I noticed a couple of them at my dealer today and they had price tags in the $650 range on the stainless ones. Have they gone up this much in price? My dealer is usually on the lower end when it comes to pricing.

When I first saw them they were running $399 and then went up ti the $450 range. At that price I could see why some people would want them, but at $650 I could not imagine buying one of these over a Colt or a Springfield.

Sorry to dredge up an old thread but where on earth in Oregon do you guys find these outside of Kieth's in portland/gresham (Where ever... they are both to far from me and last I checked he wanted to much for them there) ???

Thank you for your response wildcard. What's the name of the shop you purchased it at. I have some friends in the area so occasionally I am in the St. Johns area and could stop by on the way there sometime I guess.

Nice price BTW! That is more like what I'm looking to spend for sure.

I guess if I can't find one at a reasonable price locally I will be making another gunbroker purchase. Damn I have bought way to many guns on gunbroker lately. :s0114:

I have the 2008 Taurus catalog, customer version, not dealer. I have looked at the 1911's several times. The list of standard features is extensive and having many a Taurus I also thought about getting one. I have never owned a 1911 before and thought a Taurus would be a goo introduction for the money. So I started looking at the gun shows, and quickly discovered I could get a Kimber pro carry for less than what a lot of the Taurus 1911's were selling for. I am not sure if it the current climate in the gun market or if they have gained so much popularity. I would pay around $600, but not the $800 plus I have seen them selling for. I did however find them online for $640.00 new, plus shipping and Transfer fee. http://www.onlinegundeals.com/ItemDetails/708322034/TAURUS_STAINLESS_1911_W_TAC_RAIL_NE.htm
