The expression Pocket Rocket is a good one. This Taurus PT740 pistol will also be a hand rocket. Folk with weak or unsure grip capability need to stick with revolvers. This is no pleasant shooting pistol, but it does very well what it was intended for: concealed carry, emphasis on concealment. Apart from the levers, the 740 is only .98 inch thick. Overall length is 6 1/16 inches from the muzzle to the grip frame strut area; and height from the top of the low profile rear sight to the bottom of the magazine floorplate is only 4 1/2 inches. Weight empty is 19 ounces, about the same as a Charter Arms .38. Manufacturer, of course, is Forjas Taurus of Porto Alegre, Brazil. Importer is Taurus International of Miami. Type is striker fired, blowback semi-automatic, but the Taurus mechanism is such that its sear need not be reset as is the case with, say, Glock. Barrel is 3.2 inches. Action is full time double action, 10 pound vicinity by our estimate. Safety features include a firing pin safety, lever safety, center trigger safety, and Taurus patented keyed lock. Sights are very low profile 3 white dot stake-on front and dovetail rear that is, amazingly, windage and elevation adjustable. The FS sku suffix, then, does NOT mean fixed sights. Magazine is Taurus factory, and holds 6 rounds of .40 S&W caliber ammunition, 6+1 total loaded capacity. The Taurus 740 slim, like any pistol, experienced problems on the first production run of 2010, and we have seen that condition with the first production run of domestic brand US made pistols and even prestigious German pistols. Photo specimen and any we offer will be current production pieces, brand new in their boxes with instruction manual, two keys for their internal lock, cleaning brushes, and factory registration papers. At press time on this ad, this pistol had no competitor in its price range. Kel-tec swore off the .40 S&W caliber a decade ago. Own the Taurus PT740 in the photos, or one of its identical mates for only $ 339.00. Not transferable to civilian residents of California, the District of Colombia, or Massachusetts. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> $15 lower 48; $40 Alaska, Hawaii or Puerto Rico, USPS Priority, insured with Delivery Confirmation.
