I always wanted one of the 9mm Imbel 1911s like Brazil issued to its military.
The Pistola 9mm Modelo 1973 – Pst 9 M973
It was licensed from Colt. Unfortunately, due to the SA contracts I don't think the Imbel 1911s were ever officially imported.
I haven't seen any Taurus 9mm pistols in places I have been in New Mexico and Arizona. Maybe with Houston being a huge port they may come in that way and spread out.
