I've got a PT-1911 in duo tone. Its a nice looking pistol and havent had the problem with the safety, but I have fixed someone else's before with a simple tools and a little common sense.
I dont really trust the gun for a 460 Rowland kit but I do trust it for +P ammo as it'll eat anything I put in the mag for it and not sweat it.
One of my friends has a PT-1911 AR stainless and he loves it. My next 1911 will be stainless just because the blueing on my PT-1911 is wearing in the grip area, of course that's to be expected with heavy use. I may get it Rogaurded, but like they said...its still a Taurus, it wont collect much value other than sentimental.
I'm already surrounded by half-dead brainless people already, the zombie apocalypse would just give me a reason to be productive and get rid of them.
