    Other than what appears to be a rail on the .40 and 9mms, what are the differences between the 24/7 Compact and the Milpro pistols? Are they phasing the Milpro's out? Are there features that make the 24/7 inherently more reliable/better than the older Milpro? Not sure what the differences are...Thanks, Mike

    Note the difference in 'action'; the 24/7 is a SA/DA trigger, while the PT140 is a DA/SA action.
    Note also that these specs from the Taurus site is wrong on the frame size/length - in my photos you can clearly see they are nearly exactly the same length. And the frame/grip is smaller as well.

    I have a PT-140 PRO. It appears the same as the your PT-140 PRO except it has the SA/DA trigger. It also has Heinie sights which I dislike -- I find the rear dot a distraction and painted it black.

    I think Taurus is perhaps getting carried away with minor variations.

    The "ribber" grips on the 24/7 Compact feel good, but make the gun a bit thicker and therefor a bit harder to conceal, and I think a rail on a sub-compact is just plain goofy!

    Height: 5-1/2" for a compact gun?
    That rules it out for me as a companion to my 24/7 Pro.
    5" is as big as I would ever consider for carry as it is always the grip, not the barrel that prints.

    I asked this very same question to the rep at Taurus and they said they have no plans as of now to stop making the Mil Pro's but He also said if the 24/7 compacts take off and become a better seller then they may replace the Mil Pro line.

    And they are both SA/DA ;)
