  3. PT709 & PT740 Magazines

    The 700's
    Does anyone know what the problem is with getting magazines for the 709 or 740 Slim? I called Taurus last October and placed an order for 2 spare 740 mags. They said it would take 6-8 weeks. It has been six months. I was on Taurus' Facebook page, and they are still today telling people 6-8...

    The 700's
    My LEO brother-in-law sold me his back up, a PT740. Appears to be in great condition and unused. He showed me how to disassemble it and when he was putting it back together, it seemed like he was having problems. It did go together and would rack, load and manually eject with no problems. Went...
  8. 165gr vs 180gr for the 740

    The 700's
    Apologies if this has been beaten to death, but I just read this article (link) and wondered if ya'll had any input. Seems like he did his homework, does his argument sound reasonable? Any experience switching from 180gr to 165gr and noticing improved performance (reliability, accuracy, etc)? I...
