Nice gun, however VERY unreliable. Have put approximately 750 rounds through so far and have had approximately 2-3 jams or failure to eject per 20 rounds. Some ammo does better, some does worse. So far, I have had the most problems using Winchester ammo. The gun was sent in for servicing and the barrel and ejector were replaced, which has not helped. The service response time was less than 2 weeks, so at least Taurus does an excellent job in this regards. The accuracy is great on the gun, kick back is minimal. I have given it a good run, but will be trading mine in.

Nice pistol. My first. Learning as I go. I've figured out most everything. But, I would not recommend this pistol to anyone who needs more than 1 7 round magazine. That's what you learn when just starting out-1 magazine is not enough. Now, Taurus has taken the magazines off their website.

I bought the gun in December 2013. At around round 10 the problems started and within 20 rounds something went wrong with every pull of the trigger. They included: slide wouldn't lock back after last round, failure to extract, failure to eject including stovepipes and other configurations, VERY heavy single action trigger pull, delayed firing with trigger pulled fully (2 to 4 second delay), and failure to chamber next round even if empty casing actually ejected.

Taurus customer service staff were all very nice and efficient with sending the gun in for repairs. Taurus paid all shipping to and from Florida. They decided to replace the barrel, which took 6 months to get from Brazil. Since then, all the malfunctions seem to have been cured except slide failure to lock back on empty mag. They must have replaced more than the barrel since that wouldn't explain the erratic trigger, so I'm not sure.

This model is designed for concealed carry, but I won't ever carry mine. About half the time, the mag gets caught on something half way in to the pistol unless I really ram in home with some force, not smooth at all. Spare mags are inpossible to find, either online or in stores ( I spent 4 months looking online at 30 retailers and finally gave up). But for playing with at the range, it is plenty accurate for its size and purpose.

The Taurus pt 709 9 mm is a good compact gun. 200 rounds no jams, easy to break down and clean and maintain. Thanks Buds Great product, Great service.

We bought this in November as a carry weapon, and then had too many FTE's at the range. We sent it back to Taurus for a "6-8 week" repair turnaround, and they sent it back after three weeks with a new barrel and new extractor. It works fine now. Thanks Taurus! The other problem we had was with the sights, we needed to raise the rear, but it did not raise without tilting to one side. Taurus neglected this problem and we called back. They are sending new sights on back order, we'll replace them ourselves.

A nice gun, shoots decent groups for a 3" barrel. It has a very stiff slide so not so good for someone without strong hands, a lady for example. It hasn't loosened up much after 500 rounds or so, but it's okay like this for me.

The "single/double" action trigger is not of much use in our opinion, only if you hammer a dud and want to try again. We just eject and load the next, throw this one out. But this hardly ever happens anyways.The "double action" is only active after a single action pull. You cannot load a round into the chamber without it cocking there is no way to de-cock except to pull the trigger. Never manually chamber a round directly as it says in the manual, only through the magazine.

For cc It works nicely in a small holster. We recommend this gun for the price, quality and lifetime warranty support.
