CDNN [cdnninvestments.com] has the Taurus PT1911 in .38 Super for $399 + shipping and transfer.

Look on Page 8 of the catalog. I believe Taurus has discontinued the PT1911 in .38 Super so the stock that's out there is out there.

For those wondering about the .38 Super ballistics, here is an informative website....

38 Super vs 9mm

Inevitably there is a comparison between the 38 Super and the 9mm Luger. The Super has a clear advantage, though it is not a huge advantage. The Super propels a 130 grain bullet about 25 fps faster than the 9mm propels a 115 grain bullet. That translates into a roughly 60 ft. lbs. M.E. advantage (about 15%) for the 38 Super. Whether that difference is meaningful or not is a matter of opinion, with 38 Super lovers voting Yes, and 9mm lovers voting No. Like many things in life, we view things in a light that favors our preference. Still, the math places the 38 Super ahead of the 9mm.

If I had the bucks I would get this right now even though it is not one of my calibers. I have a PT1911 in .45 and it is sweet.

Isn't .38 special ammo a lot more than 9mm?

Although I'm pretty sure that was just a typo, .38 super is not the same as .38 Special. .38 Super is best described as an elongated 9mm Luger cartridge.

.38 SUPER is about $60/100 at Natchez, today.

.38 Super used to be a preferred round to use in IPSC competition; a combination of very high pressure and light bullet weight made for lighter vertical recoil... and faster shooting times. I kinda wish I'd had one 'back in the day'.

Opps, yeah I meant Special, not Super Wink

$60 for 100 rounds is still way more expensive than 100 rounds of Federal 9mm at Walmart or even $24 for WWB.

Did you just mis-speak, again, or are you putting us on?

.38 Super is a different beast than a 9 MM.
It approaches a .45 in terminal energy; though I'd STILL use my .45 for CCW & self-defense.
Different strokes, and all that.

Never used .38. How much of a difference is between .38 and .45?

Just a VERY QUICK cursory look....38 Super is about $31/100 Still more expensive than 9mm, but not THAT much so...it is priced along the same lines at .45ACP... AMSCOR .38 Super $15.37/box [cheaperthandirt.com]

See the attached Ballistics Chart. That is just paper comparison, but it gives you a BASIC idea....

Wow, no wonder there are a few projects out there on sigforum's on converting P22X's into 10MM Smilie. I didn't realize how powerful that cartridge was! Neat chart.
