    740 Slim Mags

    Just picked up a new 740 Slim to carry as a appendix EDC. Can anyone tell me where to find spare mags? It is as if Taurus only makes enough (1) for each new firearm sold. Any help would be awesome.

    Not positive but I don't think there are any aftermarket mags out there. I believe you will have to purchase from Taurus directly if they have them in stock. I have heard from the forum that 740 and 709 mags are kinda tricky to get. Someone will correct me if I'm wrong

    Good luck finding them. Finding mags for the 700 series guns is like trying to catch a leprechaun.... Call Taurus CS and get put on the order list.

    I'll second Academy, I cont mine there as well. If they dont have it in your store ask if they can get one from another store.

    Ive been waiting about 2 months for mine so far, but I was told by C.S. at Taurus that I would be in for a long wait. luckily my pt740 came with two mags, so Im not exactly screaming for it.

    Check with mmguns.com, don't know if they'll ship but I saw some there this week.
    I think I was trying to suggest something about the duality of man, sir.

    I've been waiting for the supplier for my LGS to get them in his stock since way before Thanksgiving of '13! I had decided when I bought my PT740 that I didn't need the extra mag and was unwilling to pay the extra $60+ for the "package" that came with the 2nd mag. Not long after a trip to the range, I decided that the 2nd mag would speed things up at the range so I placed an order with my LGS. I currently do not carry an extra mag when in the CCW mode (I know, many will disagree) so I still have use of the gun. I do have 2nd and 3rd mags for a couple of my other carry guns so if I feel the need, I can switch to those guns. I'm baffled that the aftermarket mfgrs i.e. ProMAG have yet to produce a knock-off for the PT740. I'll be patient (for now). Flex

    Luckily, my local Academy had some in stock when I bought my 740. I checked a couple days ago, and they were flat out of them.

    Later!

    Thanks for all the replies. Going crazy trying to find extra mags. I will not carry it CCW without at least one extra mag. The 740 shoots well and would like to carry it appendix due to the slim design.
