    Smile Taurus 24/7 OSS

    Has anybody got one of these yet? Guns & Ammo test on it says it's going to give everybody else a run for the money. It's a good looking pistol in the pictures. I was just wondering if anybody has shot it yet and what they thought about it. It comes in a 9mm,.40cal & .45ACP. Here's a link to it if it works.

    I really would like to get my hands on one. Will have to look around to check on price next time I am window shopping.
    I have the glock 34 long slide and would like to put another long slide one in the safe to go along with the other Taurus guns I have. (PT92,905,66)

    If you like the 24/7 line of pistols with the newer DA/SA trigger, you will like this one. Other then adding the Ambi-safety and decocker, match grade barrel and few other tweaks, it is still pretty much the same 24/7 we all love, only much better.

    The tan frame is nice, but I am hoping to find it in Black to go along with my other 4" & 5" 24/7 in 45cal.

    This will most likely be my next .45. I hope that it won't have some of the issues as some of the other Taurus's, it is really a good looking gun.

    Mr.BigTarus44 if you shoot anything like a .44spl. or .44mag a .45acp is a piece of cake. Same for the .357mag. What people like about the .45acp in most pistols is it's got more of a push than a snap when it goes off. I am not trying to talk you out of the 9mm as they will both be fun to shoot and will get the job done if need be. Heck get them both as a man can never have to many guns.

    I was very excited about the OSS when I first read about it in American Rifleman. Other positive reviews followed. Now you can find full-page advertisements for it, which ain't cheap (Attention Taurus stockholders). Yet you can't buy one, and now another poster was told they won't be available until year-end.

    Maybe it's me, but I smell a production-line problem. And combined with Taurus's reputation for lousy customer service, I smell a rat in the making. I've put the OSS .45 on a 'way back burner.

    Sorry it took me so long to get back. I took the OSS out to the range on Wednesday to shoot. Actually, It was trap league so I had to hurry a bit.

    I started with a magazine full of some old 230 hydroshocks. Shot until it didn't feed the second to the last round. Racked the slide to chamber and finished the magazine. Then I switched to american eagle 230 FMJ and shot a couple of magazines with out a hitch. Went back to the first magazine and shot another 12 without any problems.

    The gun shot pretty well, I had no problem shooting center-mass at 25 yards. Recoil is very light with little muzzle flip. More like shooting a 9MM/40 than a 45.

    I shot mostly out of the "single action" mode. I did try the "double action" mode by decocking the striker with the safety lever. The gun worked as designed.

    So far I am pretty impressed with my first Taurus autopistol. The people I have showed it to are impressed as well.

    I will try to get a picture. And, by the way, the US M-12 holster fits the 5.25" OSS. Does anyone know of a holster maker producing for the OSS?

    Shot another magazine out it. No problems what so ever. I shot it off a sand bag and got pretty respectable groups-for me anyway.

    I have cleaned it twice now and I wish it was a little easier to take down. It has a lot of little crevices and I am not quite sure if I like that.
