About the Gun

The striker-fired PT-24/7 pistol features an injection molded polymer frame, a frame-mounted manual safety lever, a visible/tactile loaded chamber indicator and a dust cover Picatinny accessory rail. Handling characteristics of 24/7 pistols are enhanced by ergonomic design attributes which Taurus calls 'Memory pads', consisting of various grooves which promote proper consistent hand placement for superior handling control. In addition, a secure grasp of the pistol grip is afforded by a high adhesion gripping surface. An option on selected basic 24/7 pistols and standard on Pro models is a soft, ribbed, non-slip, hand-conforming grip which Taurus calls the ‘Ribber’.

About the Cartridge

This cartridge was developed as a joint venture between Winchester and Smith & Wesson. It was an effort to to create a cartridge with the same power as the 10mm Norma round that the FBI had just started using, but in a shorter case. The shorter cartridge would facilitate accuracy and allow use of a smaller, more comfortable grip frame. The .40 S&W has become the cartridge of choice for many law enforcement agencies in the United States.
