Taurus 24/7 PRO 9mm

Nuts and bolts handgun—simple, reliable and accurate!

I was once told by a professor that the phrase “nuts and bolts” means simplicity in both form and function. I really like this definition, as it is a perfect description of how I view my preparation for self-defense. I shun much of the “Tacti-Cool” stuff that I see in the magazines and that is taught in any number of the current generation of firearm training courses. Even though it is not the current trend, I am constantly looking for ways to simplify my individual response to danger more than ever. As I write this article, I am watching the news coverage of the shooting on the campus of Virginia Tech, which is the largest mass murder in our nation’s history. It further reminds me of how an attack can occur anytime, anyplace and that all citizens must be prepared to respond at a moment’s notice. The Hierarchy of Threat Management is Avoid, Evade and Counter, with countering the threat being the least desirable. However, if such a response becomes necessary, your actions must be simple, quick and effective, and your selected personal defense gear must also reflect this.

tuarus2.jpgWhile I am a big fan of the classic 1911 pistol, I admit that my daily carry gun reflects this self-imposed nuts and bolt standard. I prefer a gun that I can point and shoot without a lot of complexity, a gun that has a reasonable amount of ammo (handguns don’t have firepower, an AC-130 Spectre Gunship has firepower, pistols just have capacity) that can allow me to escape and evade a threat without having to perform the complex motor skill of a reload while moving, which, trust me, is what I would be doing! I think that we can all agree that simplicity, accuracy and reliability are necessary features in any defensive handgun and if you have a gun that fills these requirements, then you should stick with it and practice, practice, practice. However, if you have not found a personal carry gun that fits your individual needs, I have a gun that you might want to check out. The Taurus 24/7 PRO is a new pistol that offers a number of worthwhile features that deserve your consideration.

    please tell me why the taurus 24/7 pro with hiene and straight 8 sights consistently shoots very low ? I have tried everything I can think of to aim this sight. The results are always the same, shoots too low, any where from 6 to 12 inches low. Have tried making the snowman with dots and anything else I could think of. Iam so disappointed. My friend wanted me to buy a ruger, I bought the 24/7 pro and his gun makes mine look bad when we shoot targets . Please help me.

  • Chris

    The Heine sights are designed so that the front sight obscures your intended target. It may seem more natural to aim at the “6 o-clock” position of your target like with regular sights, but these Heine sights are different. Even if this wasn’t normal for these sights…if the gun is consistently hitting low…aim higher!

  • wil

    Can you clarify if you tested a 9mm or the 45 that is in all of the photos in the mag. the reason why I am asking is because this is a choice I am trying to make and your article was supposed to inform me. Thanks Wil

  • Dave Spaulding

    Wil…the gun I tested was the 9mm version. The photos in the article were done in a photo studio and not the same gun that I tested.

    Gary…What Chris has told you is correct. Heinie sights are a quick action combat sight and not a competition sight. Thus, the sights are designed to cover the area that you are shooting at. Since the Heinie sight is a bit “tall” above the bore line on the 24/7 there will be a bit of off-set from the start. If you are trying for a six o’clock hold, it would not surprsie me a bit that you are shooting low. Try this…start at seven yards using a eight inch circle and hold the dot on the Heinie sight about where the logo would be on wrist watch (the upper third) and see if that does not solve your problem.

    I hope this helps,

    Dave S.

    I am looking to buy my wife a hand gun. I am impressed with the features and benefits of the 24/7 PRO 9mm, but two different dealers have told me to stay away from Taurus autos. They say they have had to send a number of them in for repair due to broken firing pins and so forth. Has anybody else had any problems. I like the gun!

    I own a 24/7 PRO .45 and i have heard from alot of gun shop owners that Taurus is bad and cheap well the proof is in pudding. I love mine and am glade i picked it over the XD or CZ i was going to get. Mine has had NO problems, shoots great, grip is awesome and with a 12 round mag plus 1 it has a good capacity. alot of the gun shop owners you hear from are probably trying to take your eyes off a great $400 Taurus and fix them on a $1200 SIG. i dont compare a Taurus to a Sig but for $300-$500 they fit the bill. I truly do prefer my 24/7 over my friends XD.45 and Glock 22. As for the strait 8′s i will put a hole dead center in a target at 30 yards but they do take a little getting used to.

  • MPanova

    I am not surprised that a dealer would tell you this, let me guess he wants you to buy something a bit more expansive right? Taurus does not have much mark up so dealers dont make as much money on them as say a Glock or Smith or the higher end H&K or Sig. Find someone like myself who owns the 24/7Pro and have them let you shoot it and you will then go out and buy one for yourself, trust me. I have 3 24/7′s 2 in 45acp and one 9mm. One of my 45′s has just over 10,000 rounds through it now and its been perfect, I carry the other 45 daily and it has been awsome through well over 1000 rounds of various HP’s.

  • Vic

    I also bought a 24/7 Pro in 9mm. This gun is a one fine weapon I carry it everyday I have over 5000 rounds through it and it has preformed flawlessly. Yes the sights are a little hard to get use too but Heinie does make a 3 dot version with or without nightsights for about 120$.

  • Chris M

    I purchased my Taurus 24/7 pro 9mm brand new about a month and a half ago. I’ve only had a chance to put 200 rounds through it. I noticed the end of the captive recoil spring assembly rod just below the barrel had snapped off. I disassembled it to see how bad the damage was, and the springs shot across the room. It’s beyond my rapair. I take extreme care and caution when it comes to my firearms so this incident completly baffles me. The rod is made of polymer also, just like the grip which seems kind of dumb (the rod I mean). I’m currently deciding what to do with it. Other than this crappy incident, it fired very well and the grip is beyond perfect. I’m a lefty so I usually have shells flying in my face but the taurus eliminates this problem.

  • BBQ Tony

    Hey Guys, I just bought my first new handgun a Taurus 24/7 Pro from Shooters in Jax.,FL. I pick it up Saturday (cant get here quick enough) the over and under white dots your refering to as Heinie sites, are they used for plate shooting? Any sugestions guys?

  • z-man

    I just purchased the 24/7 9mm. I am very impressed with the simplicity of the gun. I only shot 50 round through it, but felt very comfortable in my hand. The trigger is a little different than I am used to, but I like the easy pull. I also noticed the diffence in the sights, so I got the hang of it by the end of the box of ammo. Great weapon for the price.

  • buckeye49

    I purchased a new Taurus PT 24/7 Pro Compact in 40 S&W on 4-30-08. I took it to the range to shoot steel plates this past Sunday afternoon (5-4-08) and put four (4) Winchester 180 grain hollowpoint self-defense rounds through it (I wanted to make sure those hollowpoints will work before I relied on it for self-defense). Then I fired 250 rounds of my reloads, (165 grain Berry’s Mfg.flat nose bullets)through the pistol. I used Winchester 231 powder and load on a Dillion RL 550B press. I was so, so happy to experience “0″, not one FTE or FTF. The gun ate up my reloads and I had no negatie issues whatsoever. I was leary, since I had just traded my Sprinfield XD 40 S&W 3″ subcompact pistol even for the 24/7 pistol (yes I actually did, even though there was quite a price difference). I love this 24/7 compact in 40 S&W. I am now going to buy one in 9mm for my wife to shoot.

    A couple years ago I traded in a Ruger P94 Special Edition for a better carry option–by better I mean smaller. I got a Walther PPK/S in .380. Ever since I’ve been itching to pick up another .40, if for no other reason than to use up the 400 rounds of ammo I had left over from the Ruger, but I definitely had a budget. So after looking around for a while and finally holding a 24/7, I finally understand why so many people talk about how comfortable this pistol is. I was also shocked at the $359.00 price for a Pro Compact in .40–only just over half the price of the Glock 23 next to it in the case. Admittedly it was a bit of an impulse, but, “sold.”

    After I got home, I Googled and Yahooed the gun for a few hours. That uncovered a number of sites and posts with reports of nosedives, failures to eject, and generally miserable issues with Taurus customer service. The trend seemed to be more common with the .45′s, but there were a few who reported problems with the .40. Of course, some of these reports went back a year or two, so I’m curious if anyone knows if the 24/7 is in a 2nd or 3rd generation by now, has Taurus acknowledged any feed issues, and if so, have they made definitive changes to the 24/7 line to address them?

    After reading the various negative reviews, I had a huge case of buyer’s remorse, although I feel better seeing the positive remarks here, and some others I’ve found on the 24/7 and Taurus in general, though as Dustin noted, the proof is indeed in the pudding, so I’m hoping for a clean initial run this weekend at the range.

    I had a flashback to several years ago, when in college and looking for a cheap option, I picked up a Jennings .22 semi-auto at a gun show for maybe a hundred bucks. It was awful…so bad in fact that I couldn’t even bring myself to trade it in, so I threw the frame in a river, the slide in the Atlantic, and the mag in the trash. I’ll trade the Taurus if it doesn’t work out, but I’m hoping it will.

  • asad

    i bought my taurus 24/7 pro 9mm on 8-5-2008. fired about 20 rounds and shot my target of empty bottles from a distance of 42 yards.God i liked it but 1 thing disturbs me and that is in the middle of shooting 1 of the rounds just didnt go off and i had to eject it and load it again to fire. hope its not a big issue.

  • Dan

    any one know of any optic sights for this gun i am finding it is hard to find accessories also what do you guys recommend for a good holster to ccw??

  • buckeye49

    FOR Gary Robinson: Gary, I have the Heinie sights and I think you are probably shooting/airming according to the way alot (for instance the Springfiled Armory XD pistol manual says), e.g. you are likely using was is called the 6 o’clock sight picture, meaning you place the target just on TOP of your sights (regular 3-dot sights when all 3 dots are in alighment). Personally, I don’t like the 6 O’clock sight picture using ANY brand of pistol sights, I prefer the POA picture. With the Heinie sights, the 6 O’clock sight picture will cause you to shoot low. When looking at the Hieine Sight on the 24/7 pistol, you need to make sure that the front sight white dot sits exactly on top of and in perfect vertical alignment with the rear sight and, you need to then make sure that the front dot sigtht is exactly covering the targe you want to hit (e.g. bullseye). When you start aiming this way, your shots will come up an inch or so and you will be hitting dead-on. Then you will start putting your buddy’s shooting to shame!

  • Greg Reilly

    bought my 24/7 9mm pro c In April ,2008 went to the range with it, out of 50 rounds I had 10 missfires, the ammunition was old but fired good in my other smith and wesson, so I bought some new Winchester and some Umc ammunition I had 1 missfire with the Winchester and none with the UMC has anybody else had the same prblem?

  • buckeye49

    Well, yesterday I did it; I bought the PT 24/7 Pro Compact in 9mm, as I said I would (after buying the same gun in 40 S&W and loving it. I can’t wait to go to the range to try out this 9mm pistol. It feels identical to the 40 S&W version; and I loaded some expenseive hollow-point bullets and then some of my 124 grain re-loads in the mage and fed and ejcted them. Then I cleaned the gun and dry fired it a bit. I pray that this gun is as reliable and problem-free as the 40 S&W has been for me.

  • Richie Swanson

    I purchased my 24/7 pro 40, 01-06-2008 and the handling is great the hinene sights was a bit getting use to but,after learning to sight with it I was hitting at 15 yards the bullseye 12 out of 15 time. I have a glock 9mm too. I like the way the 24/7 fits my hand I have a small hand and the ribed grib is great. I use 165gr. hollow point. out of 500 rounds i have neaver had a miss firer of a jam.

  • C2thaC2thaW

    To Dennis G & Justin. First off, eff the Taurus haters. Those are the “supremist” Glock, Colt & etc owners. Taurus bought the Beretta plant in BR. Since then, then they have been producing quality products @ low prices, because they do not have union costs. (Note to retarted Colt, Glock, etc buyers who feel that if you don’t spend & at least $1000.00 on a pistol, you are a pussy[funny. I shoot you...you are dead. whether I shoot you with a $1000.00 or a $500.00 pistol]) Taurus is a great product. With any brand, you will find the haters & the lovers. Do not talk to friends, no matter how much you trust them…only talk to the gun dealers…and talk to more than one….so you don’t get a glock or colt “homer”.

  • Pete

    I just recently purchased a Taurus 24/7 in 45 acp. On duty I carry a glock. But off duty I rather have my Taurus. I am not a fan of Taurus but this gun (24/7) in 45 acp is for real, a damn good gun.

  • http://combathandguns Justin Porter

    I purchased a new 24/7 new in 02-08. I had shot around 200 rounds through, went home to clean it and the rod holding the springs together broke. I hope taurus will fix this problem, I know i’m not the only one it has happened too.

  • David

    Hi guys, I just bought my Turuas 24/7 Pro 9mm. I am a first time gun owner and am going to be taking a saftey 1 on 1 class and then my CCDWL. I have yet to shoot my gun at the raange bc I just baught it and didnt have time after work. What do you all recommend for ammo. The dealer where I purchased the gun says use brass stay away from reloads and dull silver shells, what do you all think. Also is this gun a reliable gun, I see that many people have problems and others say it works flawless, what are the chances that I would get a bad gun?

  • matt

    I just bought a Taurus 24/7 Pro Compact in a 9mm and I love that gun! I was never a fan of Taurus, I carry a Kimber and HK USP .40 and Taurus never really came to mind. I watched several videos and read many reviews which made me want to try one out….so, I bought it and I have no regrets. Its smooth and accurate, no jams, pretty easy to clean, and just badarse. The heinie sights take a lil gettin use too, you need to put them directly on the target or you’ll shoot low. I highly recommend the 24/7, go buy it if you’re thinking about it.

  • David

    Well I was finally able to shoot my new Tuarus 24/7 Pro 9mm this week. I love it, it feeds and shoots like a champ. I put 150 rounds through it at the range, using 100 rounds of Magtech 9mm luger rounds(115 grain) and 50 rounds of 9mm USMC. The sights do take some time to get use to. At 25 feet I never missed the target and had clusterd targets not spread out. I did notice that at 36 feet I was missing the ehad shots to teh right about 2 – 6 inches. Maybe its becuase I am a new shooter and have not had much practice with a hand gun. If you are looking at getting teh 24/7 Pro its a great gun.

    Out of the 150 rounds I had one casing fail to eject, but after cocking back the slide and releasing it the gun worked just fine again.

    My gun Cost 384.00$ Has the stainles slide and 2 16+1 magazines.

    Anyone have a review of the TAURUS 24/7 PRO 9mm compact pistol? Problems like the PT-911 model compact?

  • http://Combathandguns Jim Whitaker

    In the past 2 years, I have had to 24/7 pro handguns. I was carrying the 4″ .40 caliber on duty, until the long slide came out. during qualification our department is using Winchester Ammunition. Duty wise its Hornandy. out of the last 3 qualification shoots and over 600 rounds shot, from various positions, different rates of fire, I have had 0 feeding or firing problems. (this goes for the regular 4 inch 24/7 and the long slide). Not to mention I have no problem holding a group tighter than most glock 35′s, and Sig sauers present on the line. I have 20 years in law enforcement here, shot a lot of weapons. I will trust my life to my Taurus… no problem.

  • http://none VIEJO

    Not a lot of success getting information from TAURUS. “Maybe they problems (or complainers) will go away if we ignore them.” Any competent authority know if TAURUS has corrected the causes of broken parts in the 24/7 models?

    Hi,

    can some one tell me the recommended overall length of the ammunition for the Taurus 24/7 Pro 9mm.

    thanks

  • Tyrel Waggoner

    I to have puchaced a 24/7 pro in 9mm and love the it. exept for the hiene straight 8 sights call me a traditionalist or whatever but I like the 6 o clock sight picture. The main reason is simple, when you use the 6 o clock sighting you are able to see what you are shooting at with the straight 8 sighting you cover up the intinded target. Not to mention you should never have to change the way you instintively know how to shoot. If you ask me the guy who came up with this wasn’t a real shooter.

  • Mike Vazquez

    I have my Taurus 24/7 Pro 40 S&W for over 1 year now and only have good things to tell about it. About 300 round fired no FTF/FTE or any other failure. Even when I’m not a good shooter I can do very good groups and usually hits where I point to. This pistol is SOOOO concealable that it almost requires no space just your pocket is going to be good enough. My wife use to be alert on my concealed to be really concealed and she cannot notice a bit of this gun when carried. Adding to this the 12 + 1/15 + 1 of .40 S&W you can carry on it makes it a pistol that I would recommend to anyone who wants top quality for his buck and I mean top quality.

  • scottie runsick

    hey i just bought 24/7 pro i love it .ive owned glocks and even considered springfield xd many times,the only thing i dont like about them is their triger systems.i love the tauras trigers very easy pulled,i have put two hundred rounds through it no failers 115 grain winchester ammo.but havnt tried hollow points yet ,i know some nines dont eat hollow points ,but i bet these do has anyone tried them?grips are the best i ever felt so far their as good as glock or springfield.

  • Mike

    I just bought a 9mm taurus 24/7 Pro C. Doesn’t fire after trying 2 different rounds. Looks like the firing pin needs adjustment. There’s a small nick on the primer where the firing pin barely nicked the primer. Bringing it back to dealer so they can send it back to Taurus. Still want the gun, very comfortable I’m trying to get the first shot through the chamber. It’s under warranty.

  • scottie runsick

    my 24/7 pro 9mm is awsome.400rnds so far.no misfires or failers of any kind.id bet my life on it.ive shot winchester annd magtech,reminton,pmc,and cci blazer,all my lifeall 115 and 124 grain.never had a miss fire and ive shot lots through glocks and smiths.so to answer the gentlemans question no,never a miss fire ,ive had one failure out of my keltech but it was do to sand on the slide,several miss fires with my 22s but neither with my nines or 45s.im guesing but probly bad primers,the tarus is as good as they come.

  • Andy

    I bought my 24/7 40 S&W less than a month ago, and have fired about 800 rds through it. Today when I was shooting, the take-down pin snapped in half… bummer. Hopefully Taurus will repair it quickly.

  • http://tactical-life.com Jason Campos

    I bought my 24/7 9mm about two months ago, and I have never been so eager to go to the range. This gun is so accurate and safe. Put 800+ rounds though it and it’s still tight. I liked it so much I bought the pro .40, and the compact millennium 9mm. My wife has no problems firing any of these weapons. I put my S&W .40 cal and Kimber .45 on the bottom shelf. I have never been so accurate fresh out the box, usually takes a few trips to the range. The full frame pistols have a picatinny rail standard issue. Taurus even has a transferable lifetime warranty. I gotta be the first to admit I was kinda resilliant to buy cause I only heard of the big name brands, not only that but it’s made in Brazil too.. so look at me now..

  • Alex H.

    My first gun i bought two years ago was my 24/7 pro 9mm. so far i’ve shot about 2,000 rounds out of it, no problems what so ever. every time the trigger is pulled it shoots, ejects, and reloads. im currently a student who delivers pizza, so the gun goes everywhere with me in my car. I trust this gun with my life, its never failed to perform. so as we speak, it sits in my car now stacked with magsafe and golden sabre’s ready.

  • Nelson

    Gary
    try by aiming higer than the target you are shooting at. Little bit at each time until you find your own aiming position. remember the Hiene sights are to cover your target,BUT, each person is different. I did have the same problem at first when I just got mine, but when I hand it to my cousin to shoot with it, he was shooting accurate
    right a way. I finally end up giving the gun to him because he love it, even tough he have many good brands guns on his collection. i shoot hundreds of rounds with it and no problem. My wife also love it, so I will buy her the 24/7 compact,and one in .40 for me to carry. For the moment I carry the “Bersa thunder9, ultra compact”
    another great gun, for those who don’t know it, is a 9mm luger,13+9 capacity.

    Hey guys. The Taurus 24/7 PRO 9mm is a GREAT weapon! I wanted to pass this on… I’ve heard a couple references made in this forum to an issue where you are firing a fairly new 24/7 pro 9mm and getting the occasional misfire. Specifically, the primer is knicked, but the round does not “go bang”. This will likely subside with use. It’s a known issue that has to do with factory grease packing. It’s a fairly heavy-weight grease that will occasionally stick up the firing pin, or slow it, and result in a round that is knicked but not discharged. The grease resides in the housing, pin, and area around the pin. The bullet will fire when re-tried in another 9mm pistol. Don’t waste time sending it back. Keep shooting, as it will subside with time, and use, and cleanings. I’ve also heard of some folks adding cleaning fluid around the pin and blowing it out with a pressurized air hose. In esscence, run several hundred more rounds thru it and it will likely clear up and become an EXTREMELY dependable weapon. Of course, don’t trust your life to the weapon right out of the box; as you wouldn’t do this with ANY new weapon anyway. Hope this helps…

  • http://www.veejer.com Vince

    I have a Taurus PT 24/7Pro. After the magazines had been loaded to capacity (10 rounds) for 6 months I had consistent failures to feed with both original magazines all day on the range. Both mags were sent to Taurus in Miami in April 2009 for repair or replace warranty. As of this date 10July2009 they have not been replaced. They claim they are out of stock but did sell me one so I would have a loaded magazine while I was waiting for replacement magazines to arrive. I called them in May and they said they are still out of stock but could sell me one if I wanted it. Makes me think twice about buying another Taurus handgun.

  • Steven Glenn

    I purchased the 24/7 compact and the first time to the range shooting wolf steel case ammmo was very disappointing. I had at least 10% of the ammo not fire after hitting the primer squarely. After talking to Taurus, they indicated that the Wolf and Russian ammo had harder primers and to use the Winchester, Magtech and other standard FMJ 119 Gr. ammo. I bought a bunch of that stuff and PMC and Zero and before I went to the range I thoroughly cleaned and degreased the gun. After that I have had no problems at all. Good groups, fired every round without a single misfire, strong ejection, comfortable. I have had glocks, Sigs, and many other guns. This is my favorite of all. I have a Taurus PT-85, .380. Looks exactly like a Baretta, probably because it was made in the Baretta factory that Taurus bought. It is very accurate, comfortable and reliable as well. Thanks Taurus for a great gun at a great price.

    Just ordered a new 24/7 pro “DUO” 9mm and have not shot 1. I liked the grip but was suggested puttin on a hogue grip. Also lookin for a good conceal carry holster. Any other suggestions?

    Has anyone experienced this?
    I bought a Taurus 24/7 9MM about a year and a half ago. Using Federal 115 gr fmj ammo. Half way through the first box the slide cap blew off. Before I could finish the entire 50 rd box the firing pin assemply spring blew out the rear. Sent it to Taurus, got it back 6 weeks later. Shot like a dream, accurate, felt great, loved it. Using Remington ammo this time. 115 gr fmj. After a box and a half… the slide cap blew off. After another 1/2 magazine something ejected out the back, hit me in the cheek and the firing pin spring was dangling out the rear of the slide.
    Sent it back to Taurus. Waited another 6 weeks. Came back all fixed. Ran another 100 rounds through with no problems. PMC 115 gr fmj. The next box guess what? Yep, the slide cap blew off and shortly after there was the spring dangling out the back. Taurus will get a slightly stronger worded letter this time. Hopefully they will fix it properly this time. Too bad I really like the accuracy and feel of the pistol.

  • Dwalker86

    finally got my 24/7 pro 9mm. First time at range shot 200 rounds lawman/federal 115gr fmj through it not 1 problem. Kept up with both of my brothers’, one w/ ruger9mm and the other’s springfieldXD 9mm(very nice!). I heard a lot about 24/7 pro’s bad trigger but at 15yrds i had great grouping just slightly off to the right. A guy said its because of my trigger pull. At 25yrds not so good(i need practice). So far, overall i think taurus made a great gun that is not only cheap$ but can compete w/ some great guns

  • MrShadowWang

    Well I bought my Taurus 24/7 Pro DS in 9mm yesterday. Right away put 250rds of generic 115gr reloads I acquired from my brother. Not a single hiccup miss feed failure to eject nothing. I am very pleased with the accuracy of the weapon right out of the box. Like I read and heard a few people say the trigger needs some getting used to with a long DA pull on it but once the first one goes you’re in SA and the pull is very smooth and comfortable. I did pull down and to the right for the first couple groups and figured out why(atleast on my weapon it seems dont know about the rest of them) but the three dot sights when you line up properly should have a gap on both sides of the front sight when looking through the sight picture. I realized I had been closing that gap on the right side in-turn the gun was pulling right as for the shooting low I gave it one half twist on the adjustable rear sights and then I was pretty consistent the rest of the day. I am very pleased with this gun I was on the fence between the Taurus and the Glock 17 and I have shot the Glock many times and love it but honestly the Taurus feels better to me and in these hard times the Taurus being around $350 new vs the Glock being something like $550 new I went with the Taurus and am very pleased so far. One thing I do not like about it is that holsters are slim pickings and I haven’t found a Hi-Cap mag yet.

  • Brian

    Does anyone know a good company to get after market sights for the 24/7 pro ds model and a new grip as while? Thanks!

  • Skylight

    This is a reply to Jeff Finch. There is a strong possibility that if you had disassembled your Taurus to clean, you failed to properly fully seat the recoil spring to the barrel block during reassembly. If that were the case there is no wonder that you repetitiously had the reoccurring problems described.

    very unhappy with taurus. have a 24/7 pro 9mm. shot 115 gr. winchester 200 rds. just fine. Went to 130 gr. and after 5 rds. load indicator busted out the back hit my bro in the chest, firing pin spring was hanging out. sent it to taurus, they repaired, sent me back a dirty gun they didnt clean it, lady said its cause they test fire 30 rds. out of it and don’t clean it to show you its been tested, thats the stupidest thing i’ve ever heard and if she’s gonna b.s. me at least know what she’s saying. Took it to range after i got it, put 7 rds. through it, same thing happened, taurus customer service is crappy, i guess they wanna keep sending me this crap back until the piece hits my eye and they have a lawsuit on there hands. they refuse to replace the pistol. i’m never buying taurus again. i’ve heard people say taurus guns are real picky with ammo, well, next time i’m just gonna buy a “mainstream” pistol that can handle what i feed it. never buying taurus again(and also all these comments with the beginning saying—i just bought a taurus bla bla bla and it’s better than my glock or whatever…that crap is fake ok, its sad)

  • Dex Welch

    Have A PT pro 24/7, talked to a coupe of men that had them & had nothing but problems. Mine just quit firing after about 500 rds. dinging the primer, but not hard enough to fire; in on warranty now. Will see how Taurus does. If not satisfied will put the word out thru NRA & other sources.

  • jeff

    OMG!!!!!!!!MrShadowWang you found one, out of 4 gun shops i’ve been to they are lost. OHHHHHHH get a 1200.00! hk, ohhhhhhhh taurus fails and you will send it back. I will never spend $800.00+ on a pistol when I could have a ar or ak with a 30rd mag for the same or less. I need, I want lol this gun. Im looking for the taurus pt or not 24/7 pro DS (decock saftey) 9mm 17rd cap. Not the compact, not the long slide, the standard large frame this size.

    http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=146872373

    please help me with at least a model number, the taurus site does not show this model and to my understanding the 24/7 standard line after late 2009 went to the DS (decocker/saftey). I have been everywhere and all I get is a long slide oss in my face. Thank you

  • Jeff s

    Got my pt 24/7 pro ds 9mm today for $379.00 under $400.00 with tax. Uses the 17rd mags and has the decock saftey. It’s really nice for the price. I seen it at my local gunshop hiding and got it on the spot, new with case, 2 mags, bore brush and 2 keys. cant wait to shoot it!!!!!!

  • Neal

    Just bought a 24/7 pro .45 and have fired over 500 rounds through it with only 1 misfire, and that was because I was using cheap ammo(steel casing).This gun rocks-love the way it fits in my hand. Do your self a favor and buy the .45 ammo cost a little more but you won’t regret it. 9′s and 40′s are for pussies!!!

  • jeff

    ive owned 3 taurus pistols never had a prob with any. keepin em clean and usin good ammo required if you want any gun to perform

  • jeff

    its called shot placement. i killed a deer with a bersa 380.and one with a 40. 45 s are all hype. just like my 450 $ bow has killed just as many as a 1400 $ mathews. like i said shot placement!

  • bogeyjohnson

    I have the Taurus 24/7 Pro compact 9mm and have fired approx 250 rounds with no failures. I noticed a couple posts that mentioned misfires and having to eject to continue… If I’m not mistaken, this gun has a feature that automatically switches the action of the trigger in case of a misfire. You should be able to just pull the trigger again and it reverts to double action so you are still firing without delay. Am I right on this?

  • Airagone

    I now own my 4th Taurus with a combined 4000 rounds fired, without a failure (mostly).

    My carry gun is the 709 Slim which would not fire my personal reloads but shot factory rounds fine. A replacement (free) firing pin fixed it.

    My 4.25″ 24/7 Pro handled 2000 rounds of factory and reload in IDPA competition without failure.

    The 5.25″ 24/7 went through 1500 rounds, also in competition without any issue.

    I now compete with the 24/7 OSS which includes the match grade barrel. It has issues with my ‘lite’ reloads, occassional stove pipe and not cocking the striker to the SA position. I have not had issues with factory rounds nor with my ‘upgrade’ reloads (increased powder load .2 grains).

    All my ‘problems’ were self inflicted reloaded ammo issues, not really the fault of Taurus.

    I can’t hardly beat a gun which fires accurately, repetitively and consistently and costs as little as the Taurus does.

  • bernard

    I just purchased my first Taurus PT 24/7 PRO DS last Monday. I’ve fired over 200 rds thru it.. no problems at all so far. I actually love it.
    What does the “PT”, “PRO” and the “DS” mean? just curious…
    I was told the best grain to use was 124 fmj. what is the best brand to use?

  • scott smith

    i just bought the 24/7 40cal and went to gualified for the concealed permit and it was dead center every time no problem at all this is my first real name brand gun and i would’nt trade it for nothing

  • TheDizzel

    I purchased PT 24/7 Pro Compact .40cal about a month ago after shooting a XD 9mm for a while. First off I swear there was less kick, call me a liar if you want but my groupings where tighter. I’ve put about 700rds threw it with minimal issues and none major. A few stove pipes and misfires(that where solves with the 2nd strike feature) but other than that and the mag release position I love this pistol. Looking for some accessories like a laser sight or something, any suggestions?

  • Brent Gribble

    I have owned my Taurus PT 24/7 PRO DS 40 Caliber for two years and I have fired about 1000 rounds from this pistol and I have not had one problem with it. It is a nice weight and smooth firing handgun. It took a little getting use to the sites and the trigger pull but once I got use to it I love it and wouldn’t trade it for nothing. I recently enrolled in the police academy and plan on using this weapon through it. I see mostly negative responses on the 9mm version but not so much on the 40 and 45 calibers. If I had any of these problems I would definately be giving a negative review as well. I fire Winchester 165gr. target rounds and Speer Gold Dot 165gr. HP and have the same impressive results everytime.

  • Bob Lewis

    If you think that a glock is any better than a Taurus. type in on your search engine (problems with Glock pistols) You will find glock has had more problems than taurus and has tried to keep them quiet.

  • http://yahoo j.pardo

    luego de utilizar la majestuocidad de la beretta 92fs durante largo tiempo, he decidido comprar una taurus pt24/7 9mm, hasta el momento he disparado 350rounds sin atmosfera standar de tuneles de prueba y no le he encontrado problema alguno en sus diferentes aspectos mecanicos y de precision, solo q. en cuestiones de balistica es muy exigente por q. no es recomendable sobrepasar el grano de los 115gr o los 124gr como limite maximo, lo q. concidero como algo logico si se tiene en cuenta dos aspectos como lo son el largo y la envergadura de su canon, entre otros aspectos. pero si es una buena arma en su definicion tactica y muy buena efectividad a 50 yardas. para todos los q. aqui comentan y a los cuales les respeto su criterio, les recuerdo q. la taurus pt24/7 pro, no es un arma disenada con fines belicos, sino esclusivamente para la defensa personal a corta y media distancia

    ive owned my taurus 24/7 pro ds 9mm sub compact for over a year now.. and i must say. this gun is very good for its price.. its good. no FTE/FTF. ive had ove 400 rnds in it so far and its still working good. i am currently using corbon powrball +P bullets in it and it holds up good in the gun. i trust this gun with my life. its a very reliable and cheap priced gun.. its not cheaply made its just priced lower than your average glock or sig..ive heard of people saying i will never trust a taurus with my life.. but thats just people who like to spend $1,000 on a gun and dont really know guns too well.. taurus is the same a beretta in my opinion. taurus baught beretta awhile ago so yea its the same thing and beretta is one hell of a company i would say.. over all a taurus 24/7 is a very great gun for its price.

    I bought my SECOND Taurus PT24/7 Pro DS, This time in 9mm. My Previous one was a 40cal, Which I enjoyed shooting even though the caliber was abit tough to endure. Anyway I just went to the range with it today and fired 200 rounds through it. With no issues. I REALLY Like the Taurus and have owned a couple of their revolvers in the past. the FIRST was a 357 and it was abit shabby. The Semi-Autos are quality firearms. I agree the trigger pull is a bit too long, BUT after getting used to it, It’s a GREAT Shooter.

  • Daniel

    If you call Taurus, you can order a 2 dot dovetail rear sight, and a set screw, for a tad under $16 (including shipping). I have replaced both of the straight eight rear sights on both my PT111 Pro and my PT145 Pro. Also, I just found out that Heinie makes 3 dot night sights for the 24/7, PT111 Pro, and PT145 Pro. They run about $145 a set.
    I hate the straight 8, and I have not met another shooter who does, but each to their own. When I get the funds, I will order the Heinie night sights for both of these pistols.

  • Bobby Armstrong

    I bought a PT 24/7 40 Taurus 2 years ago and have hated it after the first time I fired it. It jams, misfires, repeated service on, clean it, trigger is plastic, spring- don’t like it. I have a Taurus PT 92 9mm that I have had since 92 and it is dead on perfect. Will keep it as my standard. Something about the 24/7 seems to be consistent in poor quality. Will only stay with 92 series or a Glock

I GOT LUCKY MINE WAS EITHER DIFFERENT OR LATE MODEL. NO 2 DOT HEINE, BUT WHY ARE THE 3 DOT SIGHTS ON THE GUN NOT LINED UP STRAIGHT TO THE BARREL?? ABOUT 1MM TO THE RIGHT BOTH FRONT AND BACK SIGHTS?? TRIGGER/ACCURACY IS O.K., IT WILL SHOOT A LITTLE LOW IF THE TRIGGER IS “YANKED” CARELESSLY.. THIN FLIMSY PLASTIC HANDLE/ FRAME! IMPRESSIVE LIGHT WEIGHT/RECOIL FOR 45 ACP.

  • Jesse

    My daughter brought over her PT 24/7 Pro DS 40 the other day and I liked it so much the very next day I went to Acadamey and got one just like it except the 45 ACP with about a 4″ barrell $329.00. Well just got back from the range, This is the second time I fired a handgun in over 25 years (did comptete as a kid) Ive always been used to the 6 oclock sights. I put 100 rounds through it 50 Monarch Brass and 50 Blazer Alum. It performed flawlessly, very accurate. 15 yrds. I quit counting holes around 88 or so.(I was convinced!)I did read this forum last night first, you have to put the barrell dot between midway and the bottom of its mount.Very little recoil. when I shot my Taurus 357 mag (605) w/full house it always left my hand sore.Ill leave it in the ride for the carjackers and let the home invaders meet the fury of my new best friend! I wouldnt trade this gun for a 900 dollar anything except maybe three more just like this one!

  • Jesse

    BTW, The trigger does rest at about 1/8 inch or less AWESOME!

  • Jesse

    I meant reset.Not rest. I strongly agree with a poster of the military who has done various tours Afgh/Iraq. Yes maybe a very small percentage are faulty. But proper cleaning I think is key. The more I read about this factory packing grease the more I cleaned it 3-5 times, the last time with the barrell brush lightly coated with Hoppes #9. I saw a Doc. years ago about a special forces team (maybe Israel) Who had to dismantle,clean,and remantle, their semi autos blindfolded in under so many minutes. This speaks volumes in my opinion.

  • Eric

    Have had my 9mm 24/7 pro for about a year or so. Have gone through maybe 5-600 rounds. Smooth gune. The trigger did take a bit to get used to. Instead of letting it out all the way after shot #1 I would release until the reset click & the pull again. Much faster then letting it reset all the way. Previous posters have brought to light the quick reset & most importantly cleaning any new gun. The firing pin can get fouled up causing missfires and all sorts of bad things if the packing grease is left in there. So just clean it, if you dont want to learn how then you shouldnt own a firearm.

  • Papa

    I have 24/7 pro DS 9mm and 40 I love both no problems and very accurate.

  • Nick

    So I plan to be a first time buyer and user of a new handgun. I have read a few of the posts here and it seems I am headed in the right direction. But a question: If money is no issue, is a .40 Cal Glock REALLY better than a Taurus 24/7 .40 cal?

  • reeny

    Just made my frist “on my own” gun purchase of a taurus 24/7 compact pro 9mm (named Barbie).I love how the gun feels in my small hands, I saw a pink one and was sold. It came with a 17 and a 12 round magizine. I was also given a used 17 round mag. I laoded the used 17 round and the new 12 round mag with cheapo winchester fmjs and the new 17 round mag with the hallow points and headed out to play. I first fired the used mag, found the long trigger pull unconfortable but shot well, no missfires. I then used the new 17 round mag with the hallow points, four ftf. I then shot the other new magizine with the cheapo winchesters (that fired fine in the used mag) and had several missfires again. Very disapointed. I cleaned the gun, had alot of grease from the factory. Any other suggestions? going to try some differnt amo and hope for better luck…

  • Ken Smith

    I own two PT 24/7 Pro’s. A .45 and a 9mm. I love them both. Only issue I have had is the magazines. Seems like they sit a little loosely in the handle/recvr and when the last shot is fired the action does not remain open. I have not had any jamming or misfire problems with several hunfred reounds shot through both. I just got a Glock 22 and really like how that gun feels and shoots. I am interested in changing the sights on the Taurus’ to 3 dot night sights. I hate the Heine 8′s.

  • Ken Smith

    To clarify, that mag issue does not happen all the time. Also, sometimes with the .45 when you insert a mag with the action open, it will automatically chamber a round. That is alarming.
    For the individuals that have had issues with the springs busting, when I recieved my 9mm (brand new) I inspected it and broke it down. The rod was busted straight from the manufacturer. The dealer sent it back and I got a new one.

  • Dale

    I have a PT940 have had it for 10 years, first got it, it shot ok jammed some new. it sets in safe most time. About 2 years ago got it out to shoot it jams 3rd round, it keep jamming so i sent it back to factory, they put a new extractor on it sent it back to me, bought a new mag. Jammed first mag. call taurus said sent it back but at $45 each time. i will not put anymore money in it. Bought a PT 22 for wife she like the white handles jammed every mag. took it back to Acc. Sport luckly got a Bobcat,, do not waste your money on TAURUS!!!

  • AP

    I’ve heard quite a few complaints about Taurus guns but I went ahead and purchased a 9mm pt24/7 pro and other than getting used to the figure 8 sights its a very comfortable shooting 9mm.I think the newer Taurus Firearms are improving in many ways especially quality. For the price of the newer Taurus’s you really cannot beat them.

  • Dale D

    I have several taurus handguns and several other types/brands. My 24/7 9mm is by far one of the best handguns I have. With close to 2000 rounds through it…it just gets better. The only jamming issue I’ve had was with wolf ammo (they all measure different lengths). I tried it just because it was cheap to shoot. Any other ammo works just fine. The gun is reliable, accurate and I HIGHLY recomment it to my friends. The .45 ACP 24/7 has had alot of reviews about jamming but I have not had any use with it.

  • jose

    Just got mine and I love it. If you are considering purchasing this gun go for it! You won’t be disappointed.

  • Zach

    Have owned my 24/7 Pro DS .40 Compact for over a year.. have had Zero issues with FTF except with cheap reloaded ammo. I did initially have the issue with mag detaches which I cured with improved gripping, but otherwise, it’s dead on accurate, light, and good for a concealed carry weapon. The loose magazine fit is a regular complaint I see regularly, as well as the magazine detach during firing quality of this weapon. I would purchase again, however, if money is no object, I would go with a slightly higher priced/quality weapon with less quarks. This gun seems to be “get lucky” type quality, with some like me having 0 issues with it, and others having constant FTF etc, problems with the gun. The last thing you want to worry about in a gunfight is “will my gun fire?, Will it Jam?,”, so far I do trust my life to the 24/7 Pro DS I currently own, and would buy another, in .40, however I would certainly test fire it repeatedly to get a good feel for it. On this particular firearm, the later models, Like my own, seem to have higher quality than earlier editions. It did win Firearm of the Year in 2005, so it can’t be all bad. Try one and see what you think, for the price, you can’t beat it.

  • Justin

    I Think if taurus would of put a little more time and money into this gun it would be awesome. I own a .45 Pro DS and its an accurate gun. Only flaws is This models has the crappiest mags ive ever encountered and there 40 BUCKS! Love the gun but will never carry because every time ive taken it out to shoot theres always been a misfeed or jam and another thing is this gun will NEVER feed any type of JHP, ive tried um all in all bran new mags. Not a good carry weapon because your always doubting its functionality.

  • Jesse

    I purchased my .45 24/7 pro ds stainless used with 3 dot sights (then converted to 3 dot night sights) and 3 mags for $356. Its just one of those to good to be true things, wich it turned out to be exactly. Id rather carry a cup of piss than a 24/7. (and no im not one of those buy name over quality guys) i dont make a lot of money but love and know a lot about guns and bought one to see what the hype was about. Not impressed, constant Failure to feeds with all bran new factory mags. Its as simple as this THE FEED RAMPS TO FREAKIN STEEP! taurus should of known better to “experiment” with that almost 90 degree ramp, this is one of those guns that will get you killed in a self defense situation.

  • carl

    my Kimber is long gone after 7 weeks at the factory,never did it shoot a full mag without a ftf or fte , I count on my Taurus OSS 9mmTactical for mine and families safety, it was here before the Ultra carry and is still here after I traded it back for 2 pistols of equal value, heck my Kel-Tec out shoots the Kimber !

  • http://? Chris

    YO CHRIS HERE..BACK AGAIN WITH AN UPDATE ABOUT MY CHEESY TAURUS 24/7 PRO 45 ACP..

    4 TO 500 RDS SHOT THRU IT AND STILL RELIABLE, BUT BIG BUTT! ON THE SECOND 3 SHOT RAPID FIRE STOVE PIPE, LIVE ROUND WAS POINTING STRAIGHT UP PINCHED BETWEEN BARREL AND THE SLIDES FEED FACE!! PLUS THE GUNS APPARENT TOP HEAVY IMBALANCE AND 4 POUND+ TRIGGER PULL AND LENGTH OF PULL IS EXCESSIVE AND CONTRIBUTES TO SHOOTING INACCURATE AND LOW BETWEEN 10 TO 20 DEGREES, ESPECIALLY IF GUN IS HELD LOOSE AND TRIGGER IS YANKED/PULLED NOT SQUEEZED. PLUS THE FEEL IN HAND IS ONLY O.K. MAYBE BETTER FOR PEOPLE WITH SMALL HANDS. PLUS THIS RUST COLOR STUFF ON THE RECOIL SPRING UNDER THE BARREL THAT SHOWS UP LATER AROUND BOTH ENDS OF BARREL WON’T GO AWAY WITH CLEANING/LUBE IS WORRYING! STILL SUSPICIOUS OF THE THIN BLACK BARREL THAT SHOULD BE STAINLESS COLOR TO MATCH SLIDE COLOR! 4 CLIPS WORK O.K. BUTT A REAL BITCH TO LOAD WITH THE FLIMSY THIN PLASTIC FACTORY PROVIDED LOADER, EVEN WITH THE FORCE INVOLVED IN LOADING CLIPS LOADER HASN’T BROKE YET!

  • Redeye

    I have had great shooting from both my 24/7 9mm pro and my 24/7 OSS .45, they both shoot where I aim, and always go bang. The trigger is smooth, the resets are quick, easy to control, and just happens to feel good in the hand. Sorry to hear about you guys with problems. I have read a lot of posts about a lot of guns and I believe that Taurus by and large has great line of guns,I would recommend them.

    im starting to agree with the ‘theory’ that 70% of the comments on this post are FAKE! There’s too many “..just bought the..” and “..I never was a fun until..”
    Call me crazy..but I’m on taurusarmed.net almost every day, and you dont see post after post glorifying Taurus’s greatness! Seems to me that there’s some false testimony bouncing around in here, maybe both ways but something aint right about a lot of these comments!

    service were factored in. Check your self. Gun tests indicates 20 percent problem rate for taurus, 6 percent for glock, 19 percent for 1911

    i have a taurus 24/7 pro ds , i have a question when i go to the range after firing 10 rounds the 11,12,13,14 or 15 would not fire i check the bullet and the firing pin hits it, question is is it the firing pin or the brand of bullets that are giving problems

  • cb’

    Ive carry 24/7 pro ds for my ccw the only problem i found out all of u useing 115 grains switch to winchester 124 grain the manfact told me that gun is only suppost to shoot 124. for jhp the only bullet that fires great is the Dx1. Before i switchd grains my gun jammed every other 115 grain bullet. now i trust my 24/7 with my life! Dont use the sites on the 24/7 i found out the sites are off get yourself a lasermax micro mini lazer it works great with that gun! just dont try to site the lazer off the front site you will go in sane trying to site it in! line it up by shooting and moving.

  • Daniel

    Ok…here is a tough one to figure out. Any thoughts on this will help. I took my wife and 13 year old daughter today to shoot our Taurus PT609 Pro. We were shooting federal bullets and every single time my daughter or wife shot the gun, it jammed. Seriously….every single time. I had 12 in the clip, I could un jam it and fire two consecutive shots myself without fail. Then, I would hand it to my daughter or wife….and without fail it would jam again??? Any ideas as to why this is happening?? Thanks

  • Gene

    Daniel,
    I’m no expert, but it sounds like your wife and daughter are “limp-wristing,” which means that they are allowing the muzzle to jump too much during recoil, causing jams in autos.

    I’ve had my taurus 24/7 pro for almost a month now, in that month i have put 500 rounds through it. I only had 1 failure, and that was after 300 rounds of tula ammo, the gun got really dirty from that cheap ammo. Cleaned it out well and havnt had a problem since.

    I think alot of these people that are getting jamming issues are not cleaning out the grease from the factory, that stuff is thick and can cause malfunctions. Clean any of your new taurus’ firearms out well before shooting, eliminates %90 of the problems.

    I have had my Taurus 24/7 Pro DS .40 for quite a while now and love it. It is my daily concealed carry weapon and the only thing I have had issues with is finding gear for it. I know its not one of the more popular weapons but I would like to add to my “Arsenal” if you will. I was able to get a BLACKHAWK SERPA holster and love it. That has been about it. I would like to get some new sights that are quicker to pick up on a rapid fire and “Under Pressure quick draw” drill. Is there a website that has equiptment?

    I am a big weapons person. As such, I do not agree with some peoples idea of carrying to evade a threat. I carry everyday not to evade but to stop the threat and save lifes. Not just my own but those around me. If you have the means is risking your life to save those of others not worth it. On that not I do love my 24/7 Pro C. However I Prefer My Glock alittle better. A few things i have notice is the taurus has a little harder pull and with the glock I have my internal laser which adds quick shooting ablity while keeping my rounds going where i need them to with little reaction time. Yes you can get a laser on the taurus however it adds bulk and requires additional holsters and zeroing. I have found that cheap ammo tends to jam. however i also found that after about a clip into it the taurus comes to life. becomes more accua and less jams. Now for those of you who are weekend shooters i know it seems crasy a dirty weapon but as a shooter and a soldier a weapon sets up after a few rounds go down range. when this happens your zerp changes some meaning you point here and your rounds go there. so a hint to some. go shooting zero after a clip. shoot all you want. stop clean it up good than run 5 more thru the tube and put it away. Now keep in mind this is for you daily and weekend shooters if you only shoot once a month or ever 6 months clean it and leave it. the carbon will be to hard by the time you shoot again.also on the 24/7 i found i dont oil mine for the most part. but take the slide off and look at the back bottom half and put the trigger you will see the slides move and a stainless steel drop release for the firing pin. it will be the last piece on the bottom half. i put 1 small drop of oil there. it gives me alittle smoother trigger pull….hope this helps some. and remember you carry not just for your protection but those around you when something happens. be ready at all times, and prepare yourself to pull the trigger if and when the time comes. my why its me or those around me. is 1 life risk worth the 10 or 20 around me. in my mind yes. my life at risk is worth saving those who i dont even know around me. thanks for reading and happy shooting

    I doubt the monk felt uncomfortable doing what he did. While he probably doesn’t pray often over the unexpectedly-dead-in-public faction, he probably does pray over people at funerals, or who are dying but not quite dead. http://www.zuxooo8de.com

    I recently purchased the tarus 24/7 Pro .45 all around it is a great gun and there has been alot of problems with this model when it comes to so called “Jamming” It is not that the gun jams. According to Taurus themselves the “clips or mags which ever you want to call them” had defects, one of the two problems would occur. Either the mags spring was too strong and push the ammo up to hard and fast causing a jam or they were too weak causing it to not feed the round into the barrel so the user had to release the slide to load the round. Other than that problem the gun has been great.

    I have had my Taurus 24/7 Pro CD S .45 for a couple of years now and it is my primary carry weapon.
    When I first bought it, the 12-round magazine had some feed issues. I sent it back and received another in about 3 weeks total turnaround time.
    Unlike Glock, the accuracy isn’t there right out of the box but, after about 300 rounds I noticed a huge sighting difference and this was just using Walmart staples such as Federal, Blazer and Winchester ammo. Of course it’s dirty ammo but I clean after each session and oil all friction parts.
    The hardest thing was to find a concealment holster. I had to employ a little ingenuity.
    I bought a Don Hume IWB holster for a full sized 24/7 .45, marked the length to my specs and took it to a shoe repair shop. They cut it and stitched it 1/8 inch above the cut to prevent any possible fraying. Perfect fit. It’s been the cat’s tits ever since.

    I have put this gun through hell and back, I would drop, step on, throw down, toss mags, and hit against objects before firing, never had a problem. This gun shoots straight and true every time, I keep it clean after every use or once a month, its my home defender and range gun. I love it, and for under 400$ you cant complain.

  • Nathan

    I bought a 24/7 cds in Jan 2010 and have had zero issues.About 2000too round through it all brass reloads from the sportsman guide worked flawlessly.I put a box of Federal hills point through which is what I carry with zero issues also.I do have a ccw permit and carry this daily and do trust it with my life!I use a blackhawk size 5 holster and it works great no one can tell I’m carrying.I carry with the 10 rd mag.If your thinking of getting one go for it its a great gun!I have children and also like the built in child lock that isn’t obvious.

    I bought a taurus PT-24/7 pro and it had feeding issues. Every 3 rounds it would jam and fail to feed. Also it would not lock back on last round.

    I live in Wisconsin. I bought my PT 24/7 Pro DS 9mm a few years ago. I have fired thousands of times with many different Ammo brands. Clean after every outing. I have not had one issue with it. Easy to clean and maintain. I would recommend this to anyone. Extremely satisfied with this purchase.

  • Kevin

    I just purchased The 24/7 Pro DS 9mm I havnt had a chance to go out and put any rounds through it butI will next week, and I will come back and post thegood and the bad about how it goes.

    I bought my Taurus 24/7 PRO DS 9 two years ago, I have never had a minute’s trouble with this handgun – it loads smoothly, chambers accurately, trigger mechanism is firm but fluid, and it is the most accurate handgun, from the first round to the 200th round, that I have ever fired. It didn’t cost me a bundle (Sure, wouldn’t everybody like a Sig or a Kimber? Not on today’s wages!), and it is even a joy to strip and clean. I am very big on pointing out the shortcomings of items I purchase, but honestly, with this handgun I have only one to discuss – the magazines are a little tough to load to capacity when brand new – but this was easily addressed using a little device called and UpLULA – Lula made short work of those tight springs and didn’t cause and wear or deformation on the feed lips. My rating = A+ all the way around.

    Why in the world did Taurus discontinue this model? People loved it, it even won the NRA Gun of The Year–and now its gone! If you want a 24/7 nowadays you’ve got to settle for this ugly second generation model their selling. This is the problem with Taurus–too many models which come and go.

    I wanted a reasonably concealable 9mm for CCW carry as a retired LEO. I tried a number of different makes/models and read a lot of reviews. I decided on the Taurus 24-7 compact and have not been disappointed. I liked the fact that I could easily conceal a 9mm with 14 rounds readily available and have another 17 in the larger magazine.

    Leaving the FFL I brought the pistol home and took it down to both inspect and clean it. There was an excess of white grease inside and I removed the excess. Out to my range in the south pasture and started at 7 yards with a mix of many different FMJ’s and JHP’s. All 32 of my first 32 rounds were in the 10X ring with the result being one big hole in the target.

    Continuing to use a mix of ammo I backed to the 15 yd line and repeated with the spread being just a little bit larger than at the 7 yd line.

    Went to the 25 and fired another 32 rounds with all of them being in the thoractic cavity area of the target.

    Decided to fire 18 rounds from the 50 just to see—all but one nit the head of the target and the one that flew was operator error not gun error.

    Back to the 7 to finish off a total of 250 rounds and I had absolutely no malfunctions of the pistol or magazines. The Heine sights were dead on for my eye. The last 14 rounds I fired were Hornady Critical Duty which is my carry ammo. Perfect placement and very little felt recoil due to the grips on the Taurus. I am very pleased so far.

    Took the weapon down for post shooting cleaning. No indication of metal to metal or metal to poly abrasions. Fit and finish on the weapon is excellent by the way.

    I have absolutely no reluctance to carry this as my CCW weapon even though some reviewers have noted that 500 rounds is the minimum they would send downrange before packing it.
