Here is Taurus’s Top of the Line variant in its 24/7 polymer framed pistols, the Taurus PT 24/7 OSS Tactical in .45 ACP Caliber. Manufacturer is Forjas Taurus of Porto Allegre, Brazil; and importer is Taurus International of Miami. Taurus has taken Glock's basic design lines and improved upon them, most notably in the area of safeties. This Taurus 24/7 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 positive-gripping entire critical area of the 24/7's grip frame with mild serrations on the sides and pronounced serrations in the finger grooves. Sighting system is the quick-resolution three dot, and both front and rear sights are dovetailed into the slide, 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. This variant of the 24/7 is what Taurus calls the OSS, developed to US Special Operations Command specs, with Government Size 5 1/4 inch barrel. Rifling in the Taurus's bore is conventional 1:9.84 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 24/7 comes with two blue steel bodied 12 shot magazines for positive slide stop engagement and quick-reloading free-fall ejection. The Taurus has a double slot picatinny accessory rail built into its frame, and weighs in at only 27.2 ounces empty. With the service size grip frame and five inch barrel combined with Taurus's superior grip frame structure, this 24/7 will withstand and perform well under sustained fire, even in the most adverse conditions. Factory product code is 1247OSS45B12. Blued slide has a matte finish in order to prevent glare in daylight conditions. Due to its priciness above the standard longslide variant, Taurus discontinued the OSS in 2011. This specimen comes to us from its exclusive Texas civilian owner. Surface detractions are minimal, principally faint slide and serration edge whitening on the left side, and a small white streak on top of the slide near the front sight. We rate it as Excellent, 90 percent vicinity, but photos ought to suffice for our distinguished shoppers to judge finish grade for themselves.
