hexionn: There's no need to use a knife on the takedown pin ever. Lock the slide,
turn the pin down then release the slide. The pin will pop out 1/8 of an
inch or so. Then you can easily pull the pin out. The Taurus instruction
book explains it... but their explanation is vague.
runman1271: First, I do not work for Taurus. Just luck of the draw.. got new camera and
off I went. I clean mine more than needed. I clean mine after I shoot and
once per week. Some say that is too often, but I have never had a problem
with the gun. The Gun is easy to take apart and clean, so I guess my answer
would be what do you plan to use the gun for? If you plan to carry the gun
for protect, then I would clean once per week, if not than as needed.
Sergio4sho: @SladeForelly but most of the parts is manufactured at miami FL in city of
UrbanKnight12: Breaks down just like a Springfield XD, with the whole trigger pulling part
runman1271: I find that having to hold those two pieces down while trying to take the
upper off (on a Glock) is a pain. Each person has an opinion. And yes, the
Glock is fairly simple to dismantle and clean.
Pendragoon99: Look , Obama is not gonna take your guns away ( I'm not sure why people
keep saying that ). Time will tell if he was the better choice ( and i do
think we are better off with the economy being the way it is ). But enough
of that , keep up the good work with the videos. I was thinking of buying a
Taurus , as they seem to be well made guns.
thezombieman85: very nice i own one and feild stripped it in 44.3 seconds thats from wen
its all together to wen the barrle and everything is out then back together
mimaki0: Did you buy yours with packed grease, the one i got came that way?
tha1Gemini24: Hey can you compare the recoil of that 40 cal to that of a 45 glock to be
specific if youve shot one....?
michaelbuckhanon: What do you mean about Obama you fat kitty
PizzaHutEmployee: they both take down just like the keltec pf9 really easy to clean i love it
CorruptArsenal213: The Taurus is not a practical gun to take a part. Nothing beats the Beretta
M9 as far as ease and the Springfield and Glock are right behind. Try
breaking down the Taurus while you are under fire to service it!! See it
you don't drop that take down lever! You NEVER want any parts like that in
a duty gun. Taurus made clones because of plans they found and because
everyone else's copy right expired, and tried to compete. Taurus makes a
quality piece but better suited for home defense than battle
Bushmaster73cuda: Is there a difference between the take down pin in the 24/7 and the pt111?
I noticed you said you have to use a knife for the pt145 (which is the same
or very similar to the pt111frame correct?) .... I ask because i do have
minimal trouble occasionally with the pt111 and never any with my G-27, But
i do have ALOT more experience taking down a glock and just recently began
to shoot a 111
SladeForelly: Taurus made me proud to be a brazilian
golden0105: im debatting on wht to buy a glock 22 3rd generation or a taurus 24/7 40
cal ... im just a beginer and have a hard time to make my mind ..... wht do
you think . this is what i wont to do .. a little bit of comp and steel
shooting etc etc
cachemerc: AWSOME VIDEO! I was on the fence about this gun and your video helped me
make the decision to buy it. here in mi its pretty easy to get a ccw permit
so this will be my carry gun!
HuskyCreations: I've had this gun for about 2 months and have put 3,000 rounds through it,
I like it better than my glock now. It's a great gun and it gets cleaned
after every trip to the range. Can't wait for open carry in Texas
runman1271: I do think the Taurus is a little easier because if the take down pin.
HuggiePacino: i own the 40 taurus! great choice for something simple and as for me a
security guard as well as protection
BiG GuY J: Hi...I was wondering does the taurus 24/7 have a spring inside the handle
its self...I was wondering because mine jam's everytime I shoot
skyline44512: this take down is like my PT140, and the gun seems almost the same except
for the dovetail mount. i'm not putting a flashlight or a stupid laser on
it so i don't need that anyway. for under $400 it's been a great little gun
but the short barrel compromises the accuracy a little. i don't need
anything to remove that pin, it comes right out! strips in seconds! i also
really love the Taurus lock for when i'm storing it
coldbrewbeer: I would never buy anything from taurus. get a Ruger
lesley mukoro: What was the obama comment for?
10oDISTURBEDo01: I've heard that glocks aren't that great. some people say they're really
good, but i dont know. i'm only, like, 14 so i wouldn't know very well. I
have heard glocks are incredibly reliable and often pretty accurate, but
i've also heard they have terrible accuracy.
runman1271: The pin on the 24/7 is a lot easier to take out. I can take the pin out if
the 24/7 just using my fingers. The PT145 just seems put in a little
tighter. Maybe because the spring is a little shorter and tougher. I really
don't know. My sister has the PT145 and we have to use a knife to get the
pin out of hers too. The PT111 and PT145 should have almost the exact
frame. The Spring in the PT145 should be a little stiffer because of the
larger round and therefore more pressure
Robert Bryant: All depends on your style. Personally I carry a .40 S&W Taurus 24/7 Pro DS
as a primary sidearm over my Glock 17. Glock has alot of good features, but
it's lack of safeties bothers me the most. Taurus has the best safety of
it's kind through out all manufacturers. Not only can you get a trigger
gaurd lock, but it has a built in lock on the slide to keep any of the
mechanics from moving, along with the slide/trigger safety switch. If you
need more information send me a message and I'll help you.
runman1271: Carrying a weapon for self defense is a personal choice. If you are not
100% sure and comfortable with the weapon that you are carrying, than find
one you are comfortable with. I carry the PT145, a Taurus, 11 shot, 45 cal,
mainly because of the "stopping" power. I have had my 145 for a while now,
thousands of rounds and never a problem. Glock and Springfield make very
nice weapons. It all comes down with what you are comfortable with.
Matt Johnson: I do have to compliment on your videos are very helpful,easily explained
and i appreciate it! What does dry firing mean? I just bought the Taurus
247 g2 as well.Also been having trouble loading the magazine.Do you have a
video on this? Thanks!
Pendragoon99: thanks , I'll keep that in mind
thepopularjock: Nice video - Thanks
flyingturtle1: Could you show us how to clean the slide also, if that's convenient?
levsmith: this should have been called taurus 24/7 40 cal disassembly or takedown.
clayton758: Good vid I own as of today 2 Taurus's 1 Apt-840 and I just purchased a
Pt-709 Slim I have had both guns less then 2 months I sold my Pt-92c yrs
ago then I trade my pt-845 last month for the Pt-840 then I purchased my
709 slim (my conceald gun) The next gun I will Purchas wil be the Pt-740
Slim.Then my Glock 27 sub compact then the XD(M) Compact and my Walther
P-380. Well anyway the TAURUS IS A FANTASTIC GUN I WOULD RECOMEND IT TO
ANYONE LOOKING FOR A GOOD QUALITY GUN AT A REASONABLY GOOD $...
MiyagiDoKarate: My Grendel is easier to take down than a Glock so naaaaa!!!!
Khoa Cao: Hi your vids are really helpful. I just wonder how the taurus, especially
pistols, are when compared to glock or springsfields, since my friends who
has a kimber told me NOT to buy any from Taurus since they are not that
quality. How do you PERSONALLY feel about the gun? I know it's cheap but
the price does not always reflects the quality. Thanks
Ron Gallant: You only have to hold them to get the slide started.
hotboyjj25: Thanks for the feedback yeah i've never had a prob with mine either.
runman1271: No, just basic cleaning was needed.
tedmongel: @wardrizzt Uh-huh there chief, i'd like to see your empirical evidence of
Obama trying to ban all handguns, you stupid ass. Just because you watch to
much one-sided media coverage or listen too much to your drunken,
backwoods, toothless friends, it doesn't mean the moronic bullcrap that you
spout out is true. Try actually using some intelligence and looking up an
issue yourself for once, do some research; find the facts. Or just continue
being an ignorant moron, your choice Billy Bob.
russellorr1975: @ rugbyismysport - You obviously don't have a Springfield then, bc a
Springfield is even easier then a Glock. Do your homework guy...
corezodiac: after reassembling my gun my clip does not seem flushed against the
gun..there is a little spacing between the gun and the clip. how do i get
my clip flushed against the body? the clip used to be flushed against it
until i cleaned it. havent fired it since then but im afraid of jamming the
gun due to that! can you help me with that?
yadiddahyphy: @rugbyismysport taurus pt 92 easier to take down that any gun u fold the
latch down n pul., n its dissasembled
runman1271: Life time warranty, over 1000 rounds, never a problem with it
CorruptArsenal213: @hydrowatcher LOL bought? I hope you know Taurus did NOT buy the plans but
happened in on them when Beretta rolled out of the plant. And by clones I
mean any thing that is imitating an original. Taurus is in fact cloning the
M9 and 92 series. Taurus is OK, it does well in its range however it is NOT
at the level of a XD or M&P. Personally my Taurus never let me down but If
it did it would have only been a day at the range, I would never trust one
with my life
tha1Gemini24: @rugbyismysport I agree I have a glock 30 (45 compact) and the hardest part
about taking a glock apart is making sure its clear
Mrchevyman208: Just bought my new Taurus 24/7 PRO DS .40 absolutely love it might have to
get one for my other hand at that price.
bob1you0: glock better
imYoPusha24: i have a PT-100 blue&gold .40 S&W and i want to know would i take the same
steps to dissassemble it for cleaning?
Alex Povolotski: You've got huge hands, man!
Bushmaster73cuda: you really think this gun is easier to take down than the glock?
