      Taurus 24/7 Pro review (pics heavy)

      Hello,

      this is my first post at handgunforum so I'm going to start by saying that this gun only cost me 269.00 OTD and it's Brand New . it's importand to say it because it was the main reason for me to buy it.The case is alright, nothing to brag about, it came with 2 magazines, a cleaning brush, manual and 2 taurus lock keys.

      for more pictures click here



      now, i'm very impress with the fit and finish quality of the slide and the gun overall, it's very sharp and clear, the edges are well made (that something i really like), the sights are very bright and both are adjustable (windage only)



      the red in the back of the slide it's a indicator, it allow you to know that the gun is cocked, so the trigger is working as a single action.



      as you can see in this picture the chamber is mirrow polish, it also have a very good feed ramp that works well with hollowpoint ammo.

      115gr FMJ: this ammo sits close to the chamber


      this is Speer Gold Dot 147gr also sits very close to the chamber and that a good thing because it feeds HP more reliable


      the taurus barrel is thick allowing a good tight fit with the slide also allowing for good accuracy


      and last, here's a picture of the magwell, the inside of the frame is clean and well shaped.



      This handgun fits my hand perfectly which mean more accuracy. They also have the finger indexing on both side for proper placement of your hands. In addition they also have a rail under the slide for light/laser. If this firearm proves to be as reliable as my glock and 1911 then i cannot go wrong carrying this weapon as a CCW.

      now lets hear what you think!

      Great pics! I just picked up a 24/7 Pro DS .40 and absolutely love it. No jams, FTE or FTF. I have run 3 different brands of ammo through it (remington, federal, winchester) with no problems. Over 400rds so far-- can't wait to fire it again. Very accurate and dependable. The price was also a factor, as my wife would fry me if I spent $600 on a Beretta 96A1 (my first choice).. so this 24/7 at under $400 was a great buy- for me and my health! lol..

      Thanks for the review

      I have a 24/7 in 9mm with over 600 rounds thru it and have not had one hiccup with it. Not one. I know a lot of people dont like the Taurus but I cant complain a bit.

      Where did you find this gun for that price? Every where I have looked its been over $500. I'm looking to get a ccw and really considering the Tauras 24/7 .40. I have read up that the new Glocks are having problems. Any opinions on what would be a good choice?

      13rd mag... So you got the C 9mm. I paid about the same price for both NIB 9mm and .45 compacts a couple of yrs ago. I love them!

      I just saw on Bud's Gun Shop a used Taurus 24/7 Pro DS .40 with 2-15 round magazines for $205 and Cheaper Than Dirt has new Taurus 24/7 G2s starting around $375. Bud's has new ones for roughly the same price.

      I just got a stainless G2 .45 from Bud's a couple of weeks ago and a stainless G2 9mm from Davidson's a couple of days ago. Very sweet guns!
