Anybody have leads on where to buy PT 809 parts?
I need a firing pin block...
I choose a Dangerous Freedom over a Safe Bondage.
There are two extremes of parts commonality between gun manufacturers
Glock is easily the master. So many parts fit between models. It's like art.
Then there is Taurus. Just keeping inventory must be an absolute nightmare.
Did each generation of the 24/7 REALLY require a different magazine? What
were the benefits to gun function? What was the benefit to consumers? I'd say
it was a benefit to Taurus in that they would be the only place to get new
magazines but, for it to be a benefit they would have to have them in stock
and be moving them.

I have a PT809 and ran into the same problems with mag availability. What I found is this:
Springfield XD9 mags will work in the PT809 pistol... IF you shave off the top lip of the magazine base to allow the magazine to seat fully into the mag well. That is an easy fix. Now the down side... the XD9 magazines will not lock the slide back on the last shot. To me that is a minor inconvenient trade-off to get extra magazines. For competitions I simply use the 2 factory magazines 1st so the slide will lock back and one of the XD magazines last since I will rarely run dry on the last magazine.
Hope this helps.
