    709 Extended Magazine

    Anyone purchase a 709 with the 9 round extended magazine? If so, can you post pics - I want to see how much it adds to the grip. Thanks.

    Re: 709 Extended Magazine

    There is no such "pinky extension" magazine from Taurus - only this attempt:

    The only magazines right now being sold by Taurus is the standard 7 round.

    Re: 709 Extended Magazine

    I know that most haven't seen one - but Taurus' 2009 Ecatalog on their website reference two models that come with a 9 round magazine (709B9 and 709SS9). Has anyone seen these models?

    Re: 709 Extended Magazine

    I purchased my PT709SS recently and I haven't seen a 9-rounder anywhere.

    Cheers.

    Re: 709 Extended Magazine

    Well, it seems to exist alright...

    http://www.lipseys.com/itemdetail.as...es&model=709B9

    .. but even that site has the regular 7rnd mag in the photo.

    I hope we can source some. It would be a real help.

    I certainly wouldn't count on a website that sells firearms to have correct and updated information on a Slim 709 extended magazine or anything else grounded in reality.

    An example:

    http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/ItemD...aspx?sku=55284

    Note that it espouses a 8 + 1 load and the photo is of the original prototype and not the final production pistol...

    There are websites out there still proclaiming that the 709 was to have a 7 round and 9 round magazine with the pistol at time of purchase.

    Fairly recent Taurus phone calls have indicated that there are no 9 round magazines that have been manufactured and shipped.

    Blah... I was afraid of that. Too bad. I really hope someone starts manufacturing one soon.

    Re: 709 Extended Magazine

    I made the call to Taurus yesterday and they said there is no 9 round magazine out for the Slim, nor are there plans to make one...of course...this guy seemed angry and as if he was having a pretty bad day...might get another answer if I call back. But as of right now...doesn't seem like Taurus has any plans of making an extended mag.

    I got the same response when I asked Taurus CS three months ago. It seems Taurus may have initially intended to make an extended mag but plans for it now have fallen through.
