    Why is the Taurus 23/7 Pro caled a "second chance" gun , when the original 24/7 was not? what is the technical difference in the firing mechanism? does it let you change your mind about what you started or what?

    Its the capability to strike the primer of a cartridge in the chamber more than once without cycling the action. If the round does not fire the first time. (like its supposed to)

    The 24/7 pro is SA/DA, the 24/7 is DAO. They both have second strike capability, so I don't know why they both wouldn't be "second chance" guns.

    Ummm I like Taurus in spite of everyone saying that they're crap, so I like to keep up on their products... and I've never heard of a 23/7... links anyone or this a joke thread?:confused:

    Never mind I feel like an idiot, cause it was just a typo. From what I've heard there were some kinks in the original that they were supposed to have fixed in the Pro. But I'm not sure what the specific changes are?

    because, when it breaks after the first 10 shots, you get a second chance to try buying a decient gun

    The guide rod on the 24/7 was or is plastic. My 24/7 Pro has the factory steel one. There's an issue with the magazines that can cause nose dives on the .45's. I think Taurus has a handle on it but they did upset a lot of owners by not finding and fixing those two problems at first.

    It's an accurate pistol and feels very good in my hand. I want a replacement slide release as the one on it is too flush with the gun and feels more like the safety.
