    Would anyone happen to know the size of the set screw used in the front sight of the PT809 or how to find the size? We lost one and I'm having a very hard time find the right size to look for.

    About a year ago i bought a 809 9mm. I love this gun. It shoots perfect, accurate, and it was a great price. Now all of a sudden its discontinued?!?!?! I was planning on picking up some more magazines for it but it looks like they have all been snatched up. Nobody has any. Does anyone know...

    I just got back from firing my new PT809C and I am BLOWN AWAY. This is the cheapest gun I own and the BEST shooting firearm in my quiver. Now I am all about cheap firearms haveing Kahrs and Smith and Wessons and etc. But a 17 or 13 ROUND, DOUBLE ACTION, HAMMER FIRED hand gun for UNDER $300...

    Buds and Armslist are selling PT 809's / 809's but the gun now has distinctly new styling. The slide is much taller now, and it appears that the barrel is 4 inches instead of 4.2 inches now. Look at the image below to see the new style on the left (with newr serial number) next to the old one on...

    Hi guys. It's been asked many times, but it is still not clear for which is the right holster for the PT809. I know that "right" is very subjective, but the main use will be IPDA competitions, no concealed carry and it should be OWB. Thank you! Jose

    Hello fellow Taurus buddies ! New to the forum but more than happy to share info and questions when they do come about. First of all, I bought my wife a nice little PT809 about a year ago and have been very pleased with it. It's shot pretty darn straight and it's so easy to maintain. Love the...

    Hello all, This is my first post as you can see so please bare with me. I will have a pt-809 as soon as my permits come through, and since I live in NJ, the two 17 round mags that come with it will be pinned to the 15 round NJ limit by my FFL who is currently holding the firearm. That being...

    Hello. Just purchased my first handgun - PT809 - and I can't wait for it to arrive:). After looking around for quite a while, I think I got a good deal on GunBuyer.com for $334 with free shipping.

    I finally did it. I've been to two different Academy stores here in the area and a Bass Pro shop near my home but none had the PT 809 in stock. I finally decided I would just go to one store and just order one during my lunch break. So off to this Academy near my office I went. What do I find...

    Anybody know how to disassemble a PT809 extractor? I took a look at the parts diagram, and watched a video of some other semi-automatic (can't remember which), and it looks conceptually easy: Punch out the extractor pin (part 1.07), remove the extractor, LCI, extractor spring, LCI spring (parts...

    I didn't set out to buy the PT809 when I did in December. I was actually looking at the 24/7 G2. Before that, we rented an XD(M) twice. My wife liked the soft rubber grips of the last two examples, which she finds lacking in the PT809's hard plastic, albeit with ribbing and contours. I thought...

    I recently bought a new PT809. I have to say I'm pleased with everything thus far except the decocking lever. it doesn't seem to work. I'm new to guns so maybe I'm just not using it right, but it seems pretty straight forward - just push the lever down. but it doesn't decock the hammer like...
