OK, FWIW, just talked with TaurusUSA concerning the PT1911. They advised that they're being shipped to TaurusUSA now and should have them by the end of the month. They'll be shipping to the distributors during January to fill existing orders, of which there are apparently many. They said that those wanting them should take steps to get their orders in to their dealers as soon as possible or face a long wait into next year. Again, FWIW.
