I have the 24/7 OSS model in 40 cal. This is essentially the same gun as the 24/7 Pro, but with a longer slide/barrel, and a decocker. I've had it several months and I'm still working up loads for it. Absolutely no malfunctions so far with a smattering of factory loads (180-gr Winchester JHP white box and 155-gr Remington JHP) and also my handloads (all using Rem 155-gr JHP). Probably about 150 rounds total through the gun so far.longgun60 said:I have been doing some research on this gun, and wanted to know if any of you guys know anything about it. Pros? Cons?
I'd like to hear the specifics on what makes the Glock/XD/Kahr a better carry gun. I hear a lot of generalities about why one gun is "better" than another, but the choice of a gun is dependent on a multitude of factors, and which of those factors are most important to that individual. BTW, I'm not a Taurus fanatic and I'm not angry that you prefer something else (I had a Glock 23 and I can't say enough good things about it). But it would be helpful if you could tell us why you consider Glock/XD/Kahr to be better carry guns.Caleb C said:I've owned a 24/7 40 cal in the past. It's an ok little pistol so I'm not going to beat up on it too much. The double-strike capability is nice. However, if you're looking for a GOOD carry gun you'll be better served with a Glock or XD. The polymer frame Khar is very nice as well if you're looking for something slim. In my opinion you'd be much better off to spend a little more money and take a step up from the Taurus.
I totally agree about the Taurus QC issues. My 24/7 runs great, but years ago I bought two of those tiny little 22LR pistols, and all 4 mags were bad. (I told Taurus about it and they sent me four new ones that work fine.) And if you read TaurusArmed.net, there are way too many guns going out that are not ready to run. The nice part is that they will make it right, but it's a hassle, no doubt about it.swede62 said:They still need a little better QC in my opinion. I don't have a lot of faith in their magazines. They don't seem to be quite as well made as other manufacturers. If they had MecGar make there mags they might do better, again in MY opinion.
