Taurus 1911 pistols in 9mm and .38 Super

I let y’all down! Somehow the Taurus 1911 pistols chambering 9mm Luger/Parabellum and .38 Super which were launched earlier this year slipped below my radar.

I also did not realize they were now available in stainless!

  • Hrmm.

    If I could get one of these, I might just be convinced to also buy another Phillipines double stack 1911 just for the frame… modify the ejector a little, buy a big pile of the largest Para compatible 9mm/.38super doublestack magazines I could lay hands on, and BOOM! Son of Spacegun*!

    Started with Frankengun, Para P16-40 converted to 10mm with other internal goodies, and a pile of lucky-find competition extended .40 magazines, for 19+1 capacity.

    Frankengun was to recieve an “upgrade” fitment of a 10mm carbine upper. Unfortunately the Para LDA system doesn’t work with the Mech-Tec CCU units due to one frickin’ 1/8″ wide strip of missing metal (seriously, if I had machine tools at home I’d have shaped a wafer and superglued it in place).

    So, with Frankengun “un-pictured”, I thought a bit and found an RIA ‘1911A2’ cheap. Cheap because they apparently are not qual-checked at the factory and mine needed tweaking to run. But, for $250 I got a new (and decent) .45 upper and barrel for another project, and what is essentially a cast clone of Para’s double stack, single action frame.

    Carbine + RIA frame = Spacegun!

    Son of spacegun… ok, maybe not right. Son of Frankengun, that works. Then I could combine the RIA slide and Taurus frame (modified) into an “honest” 1911. Bride of Frankengun?
