these are some file picks of the 24/7 OSS stainless. i haven't got the one i ordered from bud's yet. it might be a few weeks before i can get down to my FFLs and take delivery. just like like last time on the savage edge. i'll damn sure let people know how it works and shoots. lately taurus is sort of a crap shoot quality wise. this is my first taurus so wish me luck!-LOL!
the one i ordered from buds has a black finish in the photo. the item number listed is for the matt stainless finish. i think the matt stainless is what buds is shipping for the $355 45acp stainless. that should be what i'll get. buds got the wrong photo most likely for this pistol--LOL
they do have these in 40 and 9mm for the sale prices of $355 & $345. i don't know if the OSS would be a good replacement for a glock. the thing that sold me is they do have SA trigger and locked and cocked mode. the size of the pistol is about the same as a 1911.
and they do have some in socom desert tan tactical. otherwise known as turkey shit brown.
i ain't real partial to tan-- as it might have sand fleas!
the reason for the sale is the 24/7 and OSS are going to be replaced by a new version called the g2. the g2 is based of the 845 line and will be hammer fired as opposed to striker fired like the 24/7 series. they might be great and or better than the striker fired pistols. then again were talking taurus here. the G2 could be plagued by little problems like the 24/7s were when they first came out. also taurus is known for shipping things very late. the g2 was supposed to be a 2010 item and here it is 16th of the 10th month of 2010 and they ain't hit retail yet!
one thing the 24/7 OSS i think can take para ord hi-cap mags. the new G2 looks to have another type of mag. though it is too early to tell about the G2s as taurus is known for changing things at the last minute.
