New Taurus 24/7 Pro c review...

On a lark (read had money burning a hole) I picked up a Taurus 24/7 pro compact in 9mm the other week....And I have to say so far I really like this little gun..It came with a compact 13round and extended 17round mags, is quite lite and it shoots real soft....

Well hears my dilemma, I had a 2nd gen Taurus M9 copy that I put 30k rounds though in ten years and never had a single problem, never, nothing....Still have it for a range mule along with my xd .45 and others..

I really like this little gun, I shoot it very well and in 500 rounds so far have not had one single failure of any kind, nada....I have been carrying it all this week and love the way it carries, small, lite and high capacity.....

Here's my question, would you guys trust this gun as a carry weapon, I'm finding it hard in the back of my head to trust a 325.00 NIB piece with my life, silly I know but still.......

From what I've read online allot of Taurus models are hit or miss with reliability and durability, but from my past experience (M9) and now this one I'm torn....

For what it's worth though from reading online about NIB issues with these, I personally think new owners are just not cleaning them enough before they start shooting them....It had more cosmoline than any 10 guns should have, like open the slide dump it in a bucket of goo then package it in a vacuum bag kind of goo....

Discuss........

man to be hones to each his own on carry weapons. I have a 24/7 pro and love it. i have put a couple thousand rounds through it and put hundreds of round of my carry ammo through it. I would trust it just as much if not more than my other weapons. I keep mine clean and have never had a ftf or fte or any other issue. If you can shoot it reliably and have put it through some rounds i see no problem trusting it. Just because its cheaper doesn't mean it is not a good weapon.

It's a matter of personal choice.

I had several Taurus guns and I'm a member of the Taurus website, however, there were so many problems that everyone was having with just about every kind of taurus gun they make, that I sold all of mine.

I sold them because, I like you were using them as carry guns. I simply could not trust my life with their guns after reading about safety levers falling off, etc...

I also must note, that I never had a single problem, nada, not one with any Taurus that I ever owned.

I'm not trying to say for or against... like the opening line I posted... it's a matter of personal choice.

Ya I must admit it has me a bit concerned as well, I WANT to trust it...I really do..I guess I'll run a few more hundred through it, then send it in to Taurus to check it out...

It really is a nice little gun for the money though, I'll give it that.....

From my experience taurus' that I have shot have been the ones you always hear about... I guess you could say. My friend has a Mill PT145 and it is nothing but problems. He really hates that he bought it, only reason he got it was because he had enough for it but not an XD, and the money was burning a hole in his pocket. Every other mag he has atleast one FTF, and when it has a malfunction it really gets the round fubared in the gun... It takes some time to clear. We have tried different mags, total strip down cleaning/lube nothing helps. Also the ambi slide release doesn't work worth a crap from the southpaw side. I am a lefty and find the takedown level actually bending and not always releasing the slide/

Oh and this part is totally preference, but I hate the way the sa/da system makes the trigger feel. I mean since the gun will never be in DA unless there is a light primer strike seems like the sa shouldn't feel so crappy all the time. O this reminds me, I have had several taurus' fail to go completely into battery after firing, so the next shot will "click" and then it will seat... Then the da will fire the round.

I purchased a 24/7 a few years ago when it was rated "Top handgun of the year"

I loved the ergonomic grip, but the trigger pull was the worst, creepy, 4 stage trigger I've ever had.

I sold it a week later. I'd stick with Taurus revolvers, but won't trust my life to their semi-auto handguns.

Would you be questioning it's reliability if the internet didn't exist?

It seems a lot of guns get unusually good/bad reviews over the net, which can skew people's opinions on them.

You have one Taurus with no malfunctions over a LONG period of time, and your newer model has so far shown to be following that lineage. Why wouldn't you trust it?

If you didn't have the internet how would you decide what to trust your life with?
I bought it cause it was on sale, it jammed and the BG beat the crap out of me and took my money?
The net brings together a multitude of other peoples experience, good and bad.
