Taurus 24/7 Compact 45acp Blue
by Brian B Date Added: Thursday 24 September, 2009
I purchased this gun back in early July and had high hopes for it. Had to wait a week to take it to a friends farm to shoot for the first time. After having waited a week to receive it after ordering it, I was excited to finally get the chance to see how it would perform. The gun looked good and seemed well made. The grips has hard ridges that look like the ribber grips but aren't. Even still, it felt good in my hand.
I loaded both magazines and inserted the smaller of the two and took my stance. I racked the slide and the bullet jammed facing up betwen the barrel and the ejector. I worked it loose and tried again - same problem. Removed the jam and replaced the magazine. Tried again to load one in the chamber - another jam. I could not get a single round to chamber from either magazine. Imagine my frustration and disgust.
So here I sit two months later waiting to get my gun back from Taurus. I had read about some of the problems Taurus pistols are known to have - magazines falling out, stovepipes and failure to feeds. I had also read some glowing reviews that semd to make those that complained seem like whiners. I had hoped I would get one without problems - unlucky me. I have a Beretta 92FS that I have had for 15 years and which has never given me a problem. i also have a Springfield XD Sub-Compact 9mm that I love - no problems. Hard for me to believe that any manufacturer, regardless of price, could continually produce a product with so many known defects. Buyer beware.
