    OSS model or other long-slides

    Why doesn't Taurus make the 24/7 OSS any more? Too niche? I desperately want one, but used sellers are price gouging, and I'm not sure I'd like a used gun. Does Taurus make any other long slide pistols?

    Morning,
    I found a 24/7 OSS Tactical in FDE 45 ACP. It was manufactured in 1999. It was laying around the shop for years. No-one wanted it.
    Holy Cow! I bought it on the spot. This pistol is outstanding!! I actually prefer the older style with the take-down pin vs the 'Glock' style pull-down dissasembly pins.
    Very smooth trigger, and more accurate than I can be. Love it!

    I'm not sure why they stopped making it. One thing is for sure, if you find one at a good price the. You'd better jump on it.

    Models are discontinued because of problems with their design, or that they don't sell well.

    I have the OSS in .45 and I loved it! It's my night stand gun next to my bed.

    If you want a long slide Taurus, check out the PT1911 series and PT92 series.

    And the 24/7 D/ S OSS was specially designed for military acceptance trials, when the trials were dropped mid testing then the 24/7 OSS became a less than desirable weapon in todays lighter/ shorter/ flashier society.
    Same thing happened to the fore runner of the OSS the 24/7 LS due to size.
    My OSS Tactical Is a pretty accurate weapon but its not for carry and while dependable its not as dependable as several of my other weapons that I do carry, still I like the beast .

    When Taurus shifted production over to the then new 24/7 G2, there had been a long slide version planned, but it was culled from the line up and never made.

    I have the .45 24/7 OSS and love it. It is more suitable to open carry and I have carried it on my property. Mine has been very accurate and reliable.
    I love it's ergonomics and the way it shoots.
