    Custom Barrel for PT708/709/740 ???>>>>>>>

    Ok I am pretty sure that the PT708/709/740 uses the same body/frame/slide. Could not some manufacture make an aftermarket barrel that will let you shoot the different calibers ?? I would think the best one to start out with would be the PT740, change out the barrel to shoot 9mm and .380acp's. You might have to change out the spring for the .380acp and there may be a good possibility that the 40 spring will work on the 9mm. Maybe even have a .357Sig barrel !!! You may need to change out the magazines too. I wonder if I can purchase just the .40S&W barrel from Taurus and try it on my PT709 ???  These are just my thoughts. God Bless

    You can do that with the present line of Smith M & P series semi auto pistols,but the base platform must be the 40 cal or 357SIG handgun. A factory 357SIG or 40cal barrel can be purchased and used in the gun with the stock 40/357SIG cal magazines(they are the same).If you want to shoot 9mm,you must purchase a conversion barrel from Storm Lake or KKM and factory 9mm magazines.This applies to both full size and compact M & P semi auto pistols.Smith does not offer an M & P in 380ACP.

    I'm not answering your questions about the 708/709/740, but I wanted to tell you it is possible with other brands.

    Thanks for your reply. I already knew it was possible with other brands, as I also have a Sig P229 that I can currently shoot with 9mm, 40S&W, .357Sig, and .22LR with the appropriate barrels. I thought it would be nice too if we could do it with our Taurus PT700 series. God Bless

    We can only hope that Taurus and a few aftermarket companies see the potential of the swaps and make it possible.It is nice to have one gun that can shoot 3 or 4 different calibers.
