We don't have a cottage industry in 1911's overhere, but we do have some pretty good gunsmiths. Rebuilding a match grade firearm from an old 1911 should not be a problem, but it'll cost.
I might try a Sig Sauer. Itīs a reliable company, and you can leave building weapons to the Germans.
Okay, clear, consistent message on the Taurus. Wonīt buy one. Ever.
