Deal Details

TAURUS PT 24/7 PRO 9MM for $288.00 with free shipping and no tax in some states.

I just ordered this gun from centerfireguns.com and I think this is the lowest price I have seen online. Free shipping and no tax for me here in NV.

very nice price.. thumbs way up!

EDIT: btw they also have a awesome deal on the 917's for 348 shipped
http://www.centerfireguns.com/tau...04120.html

for those that dont know this is a shortened version of the 92 with fiber optic front sight
those easily go for 425+ elsewhere.

if i had some spare money i'd nab one in a heartbeat.. already have a 99 and a 92.



a man could go broke surfing that website.

So how does this compare to a S&W Sigma since they're both at a similar price point?

The Sigma gets trashed a lot, but that trashing is mainly for the heavy trigger. From my personal experience, I'd take a Sigma over this as far as reliability goes, but my experience may be an anomaly since this was 2005 NRA gun of the year or whatever, so it must do something right, I guess. Seems like Taurus quality is a bit hit or miss; you either get a really good one or a really bad one. YMMV, just my opinion.

Yep, it's a "high-capacity" gun of mass death, because "no one needs more than 10 rounds," and blah blah blah. Good thing it's not painted black or it'd really be evil.

edit: btw, as an example of why it's generally a good idea to hold a gun before you buy it, Tauruses (Tauri?) tend to have those big, downsloping trigger guards, and the design does a good job of digging into my finger. Just one of those weird things you don't think about and that doesn't happen to most people but can happen.

All I would say to anyone who is thinking of buying this....Stop by your local shop or Gander etc. and try the trigger out. The one's I have played around with were beyond sloppy. Otherwise its a compact little hi-cap pistol. But I couldn't ponder carrying one.

my friend from the gun club bought this a while back to try it out and he's had nothing but trouble with it. Sent it back to the manufacturer several times, comes back with different problems.

I have it in .45ACP. Once I figured out how to grip it (It handles completely different from my all metal handguns) it's been reliable as can be. Even with a laser mounted on the rails. The trigger is pretty crisp and I've become a fan of the Heine 8 sights it features.

I'd trade it in on a Taurus PT1911 SS though. :-)

A cheap crappy gun with a good warranty is still just a cheap crappy gun.

So this could be a money maker if you use it to get a return on your investment.

How would you play Russian Roulette with this thing?

I learned this the hard way. I sent my Taurus back to them 6 times and they never got it to function. No more Taurus for me.

The Sigma's are ok but not S&W best work for sure. I'm really starting to like Taurus. They are putting out some good quality not expensive guns and this one looks like it fits in that category. Nice post and thanks for putting it up!

Not a bad gun and a great price. I don't own one myself, but there's some pretty good reviews for the 9mm and .40 models on The Firing Line [thefiringline.com]. TU for the gun deal.
