1st Gen 24/7 Pro C DS frame pin coming out?

835 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Taurus10
I just bought my wife a Taurus 24/7 Pro C DS for personal defense and I bought it used at a gun shop and I noticed after firing a couple rounds out of it after bringing it home that it appears that the pin in between the take-down, and slide release it protruding from the frame slightly and I was wondering if this was normal and if not what can I do to safely tap it back into place. I have a reasonable knowledge of firearms so if someone offered a push in the right direction I would appreciate it a ton. I will upload a pic as soon as possible for reference.

Thank You,

Nope, none of the pins on my 24/7 and 24/7 C pistols looked like that. I suggest you use a bit of the blue loctite on the protruding part of the pin before pushing it back in.

Welcome from Indiana! Taurus10 gave good advise. If you just tap it back in, it will work back out. Go with the blue loctite. A small drop on the pin before pushing back in and then wipe up the excess. Let it sit.
Thank you both for the replies and a huge thanks to you Taurus10 I'll be going out to purchase some blue 242 this evening after work. I didn't think that was normal for any pin to be protruding from the frame but I thought it best to ask since this is my first Taurus ever and I bought it for my wife, but after shooting it I think I'd like to get one for myself too because it was reasonably accurate for being a compact and field stripping is a breeze.
The 24/7 Pro C DS is an excellent CCW. I love mine, too. Btw, the pink one was/is hard to find and the ladies love it! Congrats!
