I noticed a large amount of favorable reviews and a large amount of reviews in general on youtube for this gun. I also noticed quite a supply of them in stock in 9, 40, and 45:

Why isn't this gun discussed much(besides being a Taurus)?

Who has or had one and what are your thoughts on it?

I have a bitone 24/7 DS 9mm. From +p to light target rounds it has been flawless for 3000 rounds or more. My wife really likes the grip on it and can shoot the heck outta it.

Don't know there's really anything more to say about it outside of I think it's an inexpensive pistol of good value.

I got a tan framed 24/7 OSS in .45 ACP that works just fine. Accuracy is good but the trigger does take some getting used to.

Maybe you ought to take a look here if you want to find out about the Taurus 24/7 series.

Things are changing and the 24/7 G2 series has taken completely over from the other 24/7 models.

From here there is:

Personally I own the Taurus PT111 Millennium Pro-2 of them.
Taurus 709 Slim-1 of them.
Taurus 732-1 of them.
Taurus PT-22-2-of them.
Taurus PT58S-2 of those.
Taurus PT92C- 2 of those.
Taurus PT132 Millennium Pro-3 of those.

All of these are in my CCW carry battery and it depends on conditons and circumstances as to what gets carried when. Normally a main gun and a backup are carried daily.

Millennium Pros are kin to the 24/7 series.

I have a .40S&W 24/7 Pro C (compact) that I bought in 2007. I've put plenty of rounds thru it without any problems. It took me awhile to get use to the Heine sights and the longgggggggg trigger pull. Otherwise mine has been a good pistol.

I have a Gen I 24/7 Pro C .40, bought it in 08 tons of rounds. I love the gun, but HATE HATE HATE the Heinie Straight 8 sights. It is completely backwards of everything I was taught, you have to aim point of impact, and they are pretty much only good right at 25 yards if accuracy is something you want.

They did take away my favorite feature of the original one, which was the ribber grip.

I bought a 9mm PT24/7 the first week they were on sale. To this day, with my GLOCKs, SIGS and 1911s... It's my most accurate (in my hands) pistol. The rubber grips are falling apart though.

Well I picked it up and my out of the box impressions are good. Feels good in the hand, looks good, wonderful size for a 10+1 or 12+1 in 45. Seems very well made. The trigger is stiff, but I am hoping it will smooth out some with use.

I will update when I get a chance to shoot it

TennJed...the second shot of the trigger it lightens up don't forget. It goes from double action to a single action trigger on the second shot.

yeah, that is sorta what attracted me to it. A DA/SA striker fired, DA first shot SA follow up. I am partial to autos with hammers and DA/SA so I find this interesting.

The only wierd thing is, it doesn't go into SA by just racking the slide (if you rack it with the trigger pulled it will). It makes dryfiring in SA odd, but I assume it will flow fine when actually shot

I have had a 24/7 Pro 45 acp for 8 years and it has served me well. Shoots accurately and functions 100% I own a few other Taurus products 9mm PT92 and 4" & 6" 357 revolvers, I have found them to be good value, reliable guns. Made well and priced right. A few years back itr seemed that everyone was bashing Taurus but that has largely seemed to stop. Maybe more people are actually shooting them and finding out they are in fact good guns?

I own a first generation 24/7 DS in 9mm with the 5" barrel. I bought it new for $300.

I didn't own a 9mm at the time, and wanted something I could shoot the heck out of for as cheap as possible. My budget was a pretty strict $350. In the stores, the best I could do was a Ruger P95 or S&W Sigma. I'm not a fan of either. So, I went to a local gun show to see what else I could find. I was particularly looking for a Sig P2022, but didn't find one for under $399, surprisingly. I found an Arcus for $325 and the Taurus for $300, and maybe one or two others that I can't remember. When I went back around the 2nd time, the Arcus had just been sold; hence, I purchased the 24/7.

It is a very comfortable gun! The grip is nice, and the slide release is within reach of my strong thumb, which I've always liked. The recoil was almost nothing compared to the pocket .380s, .40s, and .44s that I was used to shooting. In addition, the 5"barrel and the 3-dot sights (surprisingly, I was not used to 3-dot sights at the time) makes it a fine, accurate pistol as well. I can get good groups even out to 25 yards, and make a ragged hole at 5 yards. I've never been able to do that with any other pistol. (Revolvers, yes...)

Like someone else mentioned, the trigger is strange. It isn't bad, but isn't really good, either. I'm not sure how normal the trigger style might be, but it's basically like a DA/SA striker-fired system. In the "SA" mode, the trigger goes back quite a ways (though effortlessly) before you hit the spot where the poundage is applied and the cartridge is fired. It is ultimately a light pull, at least as light as Glock, but the distance you have to travel before applying the pressure is odd at first. Obviously, it isn't a huge deal or else it wouldn't be the most accurate pistol I've ever shot. But a first impression isn't likely to be favorable.

In the first 100 rounds or so, I would have a couple of issues during each mag. I was disappointed with that at first, but figured it could be a break-in issue and kept going. Since then, I've maybe had 3-5 FTEs.

For what I bought it for, it is fantastic!!! It is fun as heck at the range, and more than reliable enough for basically a toy. As a competitor with Glock, XD, M&P, etc., it falls a little bit short. I only typically carry it when I go to the range. My Glock has been 100% perfect for at least twice as many rounds as the Taurus, so that's what I'll carry if given the choice.

Have a couple 24/7 OSS ( 9mm & 45 ACP ). Not a large number of rounds through either. But zero issues with what I have fired. Neither are tack drivers, but didn't expect them to be. Accurate enough for the intended use. I really like the three position ( options ) on the safety. Off, on or DC. I have average to small hands. Am very pleased with the grip. Hard to believe I'm holding a double stack 45.

Got and love both of my OSS's. very fun to shoot. I consider my 45 the SHTF gun. I know a lot of people hate the Bull but I have never had a problem.

It also doesn't hurt that Jessie Duff is the shooting team captain. :D:D

shot a 24/7 pro in 40 S&W. My uncle bought it. It was accurate and reliable for the 100 rounds we sent through it that day. No hickups. Consistently hit tin cans at 25 yards.

Carried a Taurus 24/7 Pro 9mm for a whole summer doing lawn service. Never had an issue except for the rubber grips started disintegrating.

I have a 24/7 45 OSS with a little over 600 round throuh it with no trouble at all. I was suprised at its accuracy, recoil is extremely managable. If I could find a 40 or 9 I would definitely buy it.

Oh man, between myself and family members we probably have 8 or 9 of them in 9mm and .40 cal. None have ever experienced a feeding issue, all are reasonably accurate, and when I say reasonably accurate, I mean they will shoot better than I can on most days. The only problem I had is one of them won't recycle the firing pin any more? What I mean by that is they operate similar to a DA, so every time you pull the trigger you get a firing pin strike without having to recycle the slide. Great feature if you ever experience a mis-fire.
I also have a PT111 that is super sweet. A 608 that has killed a couple of deer too. I like Taurus and I like the 24/7.

I bought a 24/7 Pro DS LS a while back to use as a range toy. There were a few hick-ups at the beginning with FTEs, but that has since subsided for the most part. Before Wednesday I would have given it 4/5 stars. However, on Wednesday at the range, I fired a round and the slide cap flew back into my right eye. I'm currently working with Taurus to take care of the problem. I'm not going to make any rash judgments or anything, but that's never happened to me with any other pistols. LOL

I've had a lot of range time with my dads 9mm pro, and som etime with his .45. Oddly enough my dad only likes them WITH the Hienie sights, so he sold the .45, I thought about buying it from him as it had been very reliable but I am not a fan of polymer guns and a CZ came up at th esame time.
