Taurus pt 1911, aac tirant suppressor, 15rd extended mag, .230 green tracer or .230 subsonic hollow tip rounds (20-50 round box), magnetic laser sight. How much do you think all of that cost??

Depends on exact model & condition of gun- Tell us about that-
That other "stuff" really doesn't add (might even detract) to value-

Taurus PT - 1911: About $750

Custom 1911 barrel long enough to accommodate suppressor threads: About $200

Gunsmith fine tuning to fit said barrel on said 1911 and put a decent trigger job on there: About $100-$200

.45 Cal Ti-Rant Suppressor: About $800, plus $200 tax stamp and 6 months of wait time on back ground check.

.45 caliber rounds are already subsonic (less than 1000fps) so a box of ammo is gonna cost you about $20-$25

15 round magazine - About $20

I had to Google what the hell a magnetic laser sight was, because I had never heard the term before. Apparently they are about $100

My math has you between $2250-$2350 not including tax. Start saving your pennies.

Maybe a little high on the PT but way to much for a Taurus IMO

For $750 I'd get the Springer milspec and a little more ammo.

I wouldn't buy a Taurus for 500 bucks. Get a RIA, Metro Arms, or a SA loaded. I just got a loaded for 650 with only 200 rds through it and it has trijicon night sights for 650. Way better gun. The suppressor will run 450-700 + the 200 dollar tax. Takes about 4 weeks here in Ky. to get approved. I know the sherriff who has to approve it so might cut that time in half.

I went with MSRP on Taurus because I figure this is all hypothetical.

I recently came into a used Taurus and with a little love and a couple of parts, turned it into one hell of a shooter. Benning carries it with him daily and has never had an issue with it.

Half the stigma about Taurus being unreliable is nothing more than Interwebz prejudice. They are producing in a state of the art CNC facility that is less than 10 years old. A couple of parts on the PT should be changed in my opinion, but they are a solid and reliable performer.
