    Taurus 24/7 Pro Compact 40 S&W

    Does anybody have any experience with this gun, or own one? I may pick one up on Tuesday.

    I know a lot of people come down hard on Taurus, but I like the look and feel of this model.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    You say compact 24/7, but I think all the 24/7's are mid-full size, the milleniums are the compacts.

    I have put about 200 rounds through a .40 24/7, and was very impressed. I loved the rubber grips on it, the gun just seemed to feel right in my hands. The recoil felt more like a 9mm, than some .40's I have shot. I had no failures, and this gun probally had 1000+ rounds through it. I love the DAO trigger on the one I shot, and the gun had decent accuracy.

    It is my brothers gun and he CC's it. I'm amazed how he does it, since he is really skinny, but I can almost never tell when he is wearing it. That all being said he did have the front sight fly off at the range a month ago. Taurus sent him a new one, but still kinda sucked, other than that he has had no problems. Taurus has gotten alot better from what I have heard. I still carry my 3rd gen PT145 pro every once in a while, and have never had an issue with it. If you do buy one, post up a range report, I would like to hear others expiriences with these.

    This is the Taurus I'm talking about.

    Barrel Length :3.3"
    Capacity :15 + 1

    The standard frame has an overall length of 7.125".
    The compact has an overall length of 6.375".
    The long slide has an overall length of 8.125".

    The shop I was in only had the 9mm model with 2 mags, one that held 17+1 rounds and one that held 13+1 rounds.

    The 40 S&W model should be in stock on Tuesday.

    I'm not sure if this is a new model, the Taurus website does not show a picture.

    How did the front sight fly off? Was it lose in the dovetail?

    Thanks for the reply.

    I have never seen one those before, It looks almost exactly like my MilPro, but with a bigger 24/7 grip. Maybe it's just really a high cap MilPro. I really don't know how my brother's sight flew off, he was at the range and after he took a shot it was gone.

    I was at the gunshop recently, and I looked at the 24/7 compact side by side with the pt-140 (which I own and carry sometimes). They are very similar in size, but the 24/7 is slightly larger, and the grip is longer.
    My pt-140 has been a great gun. With about 600 rounds through it, I have never had a glitch of any kind. But, I will admit that I constantly worried about the Taurus bugaboo coming at the wrong time; so for that reason I now carry a Ruger sp-101 as my ccw.

    Ok boss here is what your lookin at. The Taurus website lists the 24/7 barrel length at 4 inches and the Pro length at 3 1/4. Having owned a PT -140, I can tell you that there is no way of getting 15 rounds in there. But, the ever handy 2007 Taurus catalog explains. The Taurus 24/7 in .40 S&W comes in four models. Two each in Blued and Stainless, two being either 10+1 OR 15+1. Both being the same barrel legth of 4" and same overall length. The differant mags are available. This is were it gets tricky....the same gun is available in a Compact model...no...not a Pro. Those barrel lengths are 3.33" and available in the same options as the Duty/ Service 24/7 model. Sorry, for the long post...I'm a born again Taurus lover. My Pt-140 is AMAZING.....and the only thing that can get me away from it is....the Glock 27 I want/need
    God Bless America!!

    well i had a reg 24/7 and would love to buy another one. i would say tht it was going to be a great gun. i feel that it will be better than the glock 27. i held the 24/7 compact and boy did tht feel great in my hand. i have been waiting for this for a couple months now.

    Derrin 33 has it right. I held one of the 24/7 compacts at the NRA convention. It feels like a great little gun. I have a 9mm 24/7 and a pt111 pro. The 24/7 compact will be my next gun.

    Well I drove the 45 miles (round trip) to the shop today to pick the gun up, was told it did not come in. Should be in on Wednesday after 2PM.

    I was a little disappointed, like my two year old when she can't watch Barney. The owner is a good guy, and a good guy to deal with, so no problem.

    If I get it tomorrow I'll try to post a couple pictures... if I can figure out how.

    I went to the shop today and picked up the 24/7 PRO COMPACT today.

    Specs.
    Caliber - .40 S&W
    Action - SA/DA
    Mag Capacity - 15+1, and 11+1
    Barrel - 3.25"
    Total Length - 6.30"
    Sights - Heinie Straight Eight Sights
    Weight - 24.3oz

    After leaving the shop I went straight home and read the manuel and gave it a quick cleaning and headed to the range. I took a box of 50 WWB 180 grain ammo to run through the gun.



    The Photo below is the first 3 shots out of the box at 7 yards.


    The photo below is 11 shots rapid fire at 7 yards.


    This Photo is 3 shots at 15 yards.


    I went through all 50 of the rounds with no failures of any sort. The recoil is very manageable, 1000% better than my CZ 100. Actually the recoil was more along the line of my 9mm P-89.

    I like the SA/DA trigger. The first pull of the trigger is SA, if the round fails to fire you get a second chance with a DA pull. If the rounds fails again, rack the slide and you are back in SA with the next round.

    The next trip to the range will be on Sunday. I plan to put a few hundred WWB rounds down range, and a couple boxes of defensive rounds down range. If this works out with no failures I'll start the search for a holster.

    Be careful some of the earlier 24/7 pro series have a problem with the slide clipping the mag and causing FTF jams. Looks like your OK though. You can usually see it after 50 or so rounds. Did you have a problem with the take down pin? I have to pry mine out with a shell casing. I'll probably wait for the 800 series to upgrade.

    Yes the take down pin is tight, but not to the point that I need to pry it out.

    If your 24/7 strips like a Mil Pro, here's how you can get the pin out. After you rotate it, pull the slide all the way back, and the pin will pop a bit. Re-lock the slide back, and you should be able to wiggle the pin out with your fingers.
