Hi I'm new to the forum and I'm a new 24/7pro 45 owner. I just picked it up yesterday and I have a couple of comments and questions. First of the gun seems well made without alot of tool marks and the trigger seems pretty good. The take up on the trigger is long but the reset is pretty short. I haven't got to shoot it yet but I was wondering if they shoot to point of aim? The reason I ask is I called Taurus just to inquire about different height sights to adjust the point of impact and they told me they don't have different height sights but people had been asking about them. All my other handguns have different height sights available from the manufacturer so what the heck is the matter with Taurus. I'm just hoping I don't have to mess with the sights. My other question involves removing the slide for cleaning. What's the trick for removing the slide? Mine comes off but even after pulling the trigger I really have to push to get it off. It's the same way installing, i basicly have to hit the front of the slide and barrel withe palm of my hand to get the slide back on. Mark

Held solidly on a support mine does very well. Some of us find problems shooting it freehand. The general tendency seems to be quite a bit low and left.

Only very, very, very naughty people say bad things about Taurus here!!!!

As for the slide, mine loosened up pretty quickly.

Thanks for the reply JimL. I can deal with the offhand shooting where I have a problem with is if the gun is benched and it doesn't shoot to point of aim. My other autos I try and set them up so they shoot about an inch high at 15yards so that no matter what I'm shooting I just aim the same. Mark

DAO guns shoot very differently than regular standard DA/SA guns. Different trigger types take different mindset and techniques to become proficient. Veteran shooters can have and do have trouble transitioning from DA/SA pistols or revolvers to DAO type triggers. With SIG's DAK, H&K's LEM, Walther or S&W DAO triggers, and Taurus DA/SA triggers,all are different enough to have to take major time,practice,different techniques, and dedication to stay up to par.

This should cover it for those who are having POI or POA problems.

Ammo, the way the gun is gripped and held, trigger pressure and follow through, and stance are just some of the things those having sight or POI troubles to look at.

Shot my new 24/7 45acp. this morning. It shoots to point of aim but to the left about 3 inches. Part of the problem is front sight is off center a little to the right but I adjusted the rear sight. The gun runs like a top with my reloads. I was shooting 230gr round nose and some 155gr swc which can choke some guns but those ran fine too. The only issue I can see is ejecting unfired rounds which tend to get hung up but fired brass ejects great. Mark
