    Academy PT640 Deal

    I called local Academy yesterday to ask about the PT640 and sales clerk said they were not in inventory.

    I wanted to ask about specs on pistol as the Taurus Brazil website shows a PT640 and a PT640 Pro.

    I was able to get a PT640 today at Academy. Last night I did a search and found the PT640 listed on the Brazilian Taurus website under POLICE PISTOLS, and used the Google translate service to translate the Portuguese to English.

    The PT640 is a medium frame .40, DAO. The PRO version is almost identical except that it is listed as DA/SA.

    I also searched online for anyone that might have PT640 magazines, include several dealers of hard to find magazines. NONE were listed, and emails sent to several specialized dealers of hard to find magazines indicated that none had them.

    Does anyone know where I could find additional mags for the PT640?

    Thanks!

    Congratulations on your new pistol.

    We'd certainly like to take a gander at it if you'll kindly post a pic!

    Thumbs up PT 640 Mags (MAYBE), PT 145, PT 111 , 24/7 .40 Compact mags on sale at Cabela's

    I can NOT yet vouch for the accuracy of the posts on the Brazilian gun blogs, BUT it appears that the Taurus 24/7 .40 COMPACT magazines may be the SAME as the PT640 mags.

    Tonight I ordered several of the factory original 24/7 .40 Compact 11 round magazines from Cabela's, where they are on sale for HALF PRICE at $19.88. (Free shipping on $99 orders with code WGIFTS, expires 11/29).

    For the same price Cabela's has the mags for the MIL PRO 9mm and 45acp. I had previously bought some of these for my PT145 PRO and they were perfect.

    I picked one of these PT640's .40 caliber today at academy too for 289.00. It seemed like to good a deal to turn down. I also would appreciate and info others may have on this guns, since it is very hard to find online and maybe what it the US equivalent version of this gun to compare to. So far I am happy with it.
