    Was this a recalled 24/7 firearm?

    I have tried to go back and locate the search engine that allowed the looking up of a serial number to verify it was subjected to the law suite recall. I did try to contact Taurus via a Contact message but never received a reply.

    I feel pretty certain that this was included, but then I have been incorrect a time or two in my long life. I am thinking very strongly of culling it out of my herd, and want to be able to positively confirm or deny the subjective recall inclusion.

    So here are a couple of photos for your viewing pleasures and informative use to the above question.

    Please don't mistake this as a "For Sale" listing, I will properly list this in the Classified Section when that time comes.

    That looks like a Gen3 24/7 Pro Compact Decocking Safety. That gun would have been on the recall list, I'm really sure.

    The whole 'gen' thing is a bit confusing - the guns that game out prior to the Gen2 series were actually called gen1, gen2, and gen3 - I owned a gen2 Millenium 9mm, which was double action only, and after that gun I owned a gen3 MilPro PT145, which I still own. 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.

    Yes. Yes it is.

    Be sure to not set the safety while holding the trigger down. If you do it'll throw itself on the floor and attack you.

    You Know, I never did understand why someone would hold the trigger down/back to set the safety.

    Guess this would be the same guy who pushed for the warning label on the back of a jar/can of Planters peanuts that reads: "May contain peanuts or peanut pieces"..."Produced in a facility using machinery that also processes Peanut products"

    The strange thing about this pistol is that it seems to be one of the most difficult to list for sale. There is just something about it that seems so right and fits my grip with comfort and purpose.

    The only negative is that settlement/recall/lawsuit that waves in the air like a big red flag.

    That being the cause of the AD or ND that injured owners is the popular and anecdotal reasons for those shootings we see here in the forum a lot.

    If this were the sole reason attributed to the gun's firing wouldn't a competent attorney be able to successfully argue that the gun firing was the result of operator error?

    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.

    There are many times I wish I had kept my PT 145 SS, although I would not have carried it after the recall but kept it as a range gun. Then when I think of that I remember that I have enough range guns, many of which wait long periods to show their stuff slinging lead.

    At this point, the magazines alone are probably worth 35 bucks each or more to the people who kept theirs.
