HG1247451PC12. Here is the smallest, arguably the best, double stacked double action .45 compact on the market, the Taurus PT24/7 Pro Compact DS. Taurus has taken Glock's basic designs and improved upon them, most notably in the area of safeties. This Taurus PT24/7 has a positive locking thumb safety for right-handed shooters; more important, it comes with Taurus's patented internal lock system and two keys. The Taurus, furthermore, has smoother lines and smoother surfaces than its competitor, note the beveled top of the frame – nowhere near as Box-y as the Glock. Whereas a person has to get one of the rather unwieldy, fattening Hogue slip-on grips to get a positive control feel to the Austrian Company's products, the Brazilians at Taurus have incorporated a very comfortable positive-gripping lower frame with better contour and extensive serrations that allow the shooter to conduct protracted firing sessions with positive grip control. Sighting system is the quick-resolution Heinie Straight-Eight, and both front and rear sights are drift adjustable for windage. This Taurus does not depend upon a slide activated sear in order for the trigger to work as on the Glock; the Taurus's trigger works independently on its own for positive, sure firing in every shot and in every condition. Rifling in the Taurus's bore is conventional groove and land, and a person can shoot any type of bullet, steel, lead, or jacketed, without fear of the barrel bursting. Not so with Glock. Equally crucial, too, the Taurus PT-24/7 comes with blue steel bodied magazines for positive slide stop engagement and quick-reloading free-fall ejection. The smaller of the two magazines is ten shot, and its longer mate is 12 round with a spacer to complement the finger rest floor plate. Highly important in today's economic climate, the Taurus is almost $200 cheaper than its Glock competitors. The Taurus weighs in at only 23 1/2 ounces empty. With the 1.121 thin size grip frame and 3 1/4 inch barrel combined with Taurus's superior grip frame structure, this PT24/7 Pro Compact will perform well and withstand sustained fire, even in adverse conditions. Factory product code is 1247451PC12. Slide is matte blue, and does not glare in daylight conditions.
