My son has a PT24/7 OSS DS that he bought late April of last year. All along he has had problems getting the weapon to sight in properly. I finally got around to looking at it and when I picked it up the first thing I noticed was the barrel was loose in the slide. I'm not new to fire arms and I know that with the slide open the barrel will rattle around but this is with the slide closed! The barrel shows very uneven wear marks and the barrel hole in the slide is very wide and oblong. I had him call Taurus about this and said it is normal to have an 1/8" to 1/4" play even when the slide is forward for round loading. I'm looking for your opinions, I think he should call them back and get a little more forcefull with them! Maybe I'm crazy. I'm going to try to post some pics here in a couple of minutes.

Yeah. The second & fifth picture head on, looks like there's a bit more space on one side, than there should be.
That would be the right side, if you're holding the pistol.

My 24/7 45 Pro compact DS was nothing like that it was almost as tight as my 1911.

call again, ask to speak to a supervisor if he doesn't get any help.

As others have said, this is not right. Send it to Miami and Taurus will either correct the issue or may even replace the firearm.

Auto part Hand Judging from this pic if you put a caliper on both sides the barrel hole is off center. From this viewpoint the right side is thicker than the left. The other pics show similar evidence.

When they talk about barrel movement, remember that this is total movement,. 1/4" might be acceptable, as that's 1/8" to either side, but even that is pushing it. Don't try to be a gunsmith. If the gun is terribly inaccurate, have a couple of others try it, report it as such, and send it back.

I would be looking for a new complete slide, barrel, recoil assembly and possibly a trigger group. If you get really lucky, Taurus might even be good enough to give you a new gun. who knows what else could be twisted the wrong way inside of there with such a wide range of motion under fire.

You must have talked to the same person I did stating that a revolver cylinder could rotate 1/8" and that was alright. NO ITS NOT! 1/8" is almost half of the diameter of the .32 round.
What I see on your gun is not right and I would say dangerous if the barrel is not lining up with the round by 1/8" to 1/4". That is BS big time.
Hope you get some action.

It looks like QC needs to clean the eye glasses.

Thanks for all the input! He's going to call them again tomorrow since it's his day off and he will have time to sit and wait on hold. Hopefully he'll get better results this time! I'll keep you all posted.
