I handled a 24/7 yesterday, got to admit I was impressed with the way it fit my hand. The one thing I didn't like was the trigger pull, IMO it was too long. Another thing I didn't like was the price -- $30 more than an XD-9 right next to it in the showcase. Was just wondering if anyone had a chance to try one out yet. Don't want to sound biased, but I have a hard time paying way more for a Taurus than I did for my Sigma or Steyr M9.

You have got to be kidding me. the sigma has close to a 14 pound trigger pull. I owned both the 9ve and 40ve. the Steyer is never going to be considered a duty weapon. Although I am sure it is a nice firing weapon. I do own the Taurus 24/7 in .45 caliber. I have put 300 rounds through it since I got it 2 weeks ago. Ball practice ammo. And not one missfire. That trigger pull loosens up with loaded magazines for some reason. It is a great firing weapon. And whatever you put the sights on is what you get. I am very inpressed. I sold my glock 19. Taurus 24/7 is a better firearm all the way around.

Do a search here. Myself and SONICMASD did a range report on our 24/7's.

The projection on the transfer bar that releases the firing pin block is dragging on the bottom of the slide. After 300 rounds the slide should be pretty well seated, you can stone or sand the projection down. Keep it very smooth and sand the drag mark under the slide also lubricate the drag area. Use a fine sandpaper, reassemble, and test frequently. You will end up with a very smooth trigger. Same with the PT145.

Hmm... Thats very odd. the prices around here seem to have bumped up about 45-50 bucks for no apparent reason, but they are ALWAYS cheaper than the XD's, usually somewhere in the neighborhood of 100.00 bucks cheaper. I have been contemplating a 24/7 forever, and if things work out, this weekend will be the weekend I buy one in 9mm....
