It's a SA gun with the 'second chance' double action pull if you get a non-firing primer. After that, the 'Gen2' series of guns came out which replaced the ones I just mentioned.
    Did Taurus ever refer to them that way? I don't think so. I think that's something that came into use here on the forum to differentiate the first three variations. But I can't find anywhere that Taurus ever referred to them that way.

    I'm pretty sure they did refer to them in that way, maybe not in the main description but in the overall information of the gun. Of course, I didn't save any screen prints of that so I guess it's lost to history.

    When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."

    That's the compact version of the PT24/7Pro DS I have which has the best ergonomics of any gun I have ever or now own - and it is a recalled pistol. I'm keeping mine, along with a PT24/7CA and PT24/7 PRO LS DS. Not selling because of recall and not returning to take an inferior pistol in warranty exchange.

    To me it didn't matter , i still have my 24/7 Pro DS in 9mm and i care nothing about selling it . If anything happens to it the only thing will be passed on to some kinfolk that already said they wanted it if i ever gave it up . 17+ , plenty fire power for intruders !

    I think that the reason that Taurus settled, costing them many millions of dollars, goes much deeper than a few people setting their manual safety while depressing the trigger. ...
    Lawyers can make all sorts of arguments that would seem perfectly rational to you and me. The real question is whether a jury of twelve Democratic voters with no firearms experience will buy them. Taurus settled because they were afraid to take that argument to court, in view of the kinds of people who sit on American juries nowadays.

    There are "four boxes" that can be employed to resist the downfall of America, the ballot box, the soap box, the jury box and, lastly, the ammo box.

    Very True!

    Not giving you advice on what to do, but in my case, I have three "Lawsuit" Pistols. 9mm 24/7 Pro, .45 24/7 OSS DS, and a 9mm Pre-G2 PT111.
    I have no intention of selling them off or sending them in for a firearm that will not be equivalent to what they are.
    Also, I still shoot and carry them. Particularly, the 9mm 24/7 Pro and Pre-G2 PT111.
    IMO, they were very well made and ergonomic, with great triggers. We will probably not see their like again.

    Kind of a non tactical reload!!!
    and yep! the 24/7 C Pro D/S is on the recall list, I gots one just like it.
