    Taurus 24/7 auto load

    I have a buddy who has a Taurus 24/7 .40 that has had about 500 rounds through it. We notice today that when a loaded magazine is put in forcefully or if you hit the bottom of the magazine after inserting it into the gun the slide will drop on its own. He does not seem to think there is anything wrong with it but it freaked me out a little when it did it the first time. He is new to firearms and I could see this being a problem.
    "The theory that the children of the Commonwealth are the charge of the Commonwealth is a pagan one, derived from heathen Sparta and Platos heathen republic, and connected by regular, logical sequence with legalized prostitution and the dissolution of the conjugal tie." R.L. Dabney

    That's not uncommon. The inertia of the slide lock overcomes its spring resistance when a mag is smartly seated. A little unsettling the first time it happens, but I don't view it as a big deal. If it happens a lot, then you're either whacking the mag home too hard, or the slide lock spring needs to be replaced.

    I've only had this happen on my compact pistols such as the PT111 and CW9, even on a G23 - never happens with the 1911s, or the Sig 220.
