I noticed a new advert today while watching Personal Defense TV on the Outdoor Channel. Taurus is actively promoting the OSS models. Are they finally available for sale? I checked several websites without finding any of these models listed. Your insight is appreciated.

I believe they're advertising more in preparation for the release soon. Taurus did the same with the PT1911s as as recall. On their website however, the status of the OSS models is still 'to be announced', unfortunately.

It really shouldn't be much longer now however until they hit the stores.

I think Richard from Taurus said the 24/7 OSS and the Stainless Steel PT1911 would be out sometime next year.

The 2008 handgun combination magazine and catalogs are out. Soon after these appear the new handgun models also appear for real. So it can't be to long. It would behoove Taurus,if they are finally bring anything out,to sneak preview them here. :)

UPDATE: ITEM NOT INSTOCK

Called customer service and talk to a sales rep, they are NOT instock yet, even though the website says so. There is no ETA on them either, the sales rep said anything from a couple of weeks to a couple of months is the best they can say. No word on PT1911 w/tac rail or the Stainless Steel 1911 either...

Draeger, Thank you for the follow up with the manufacturer. I am anxious to actually handle this firearm. Since it was designed to be the Taurus entry into the govt. handgun trials I believe that it will be a great performer. It should also be as trouble free as anyone could make a pistol. I have several local shops that will contact me when they receive the new weapons. Again, thank you.

The prices are really reasonable. I've seen them as low as 425ish from reedsammo and local for 450ish. Not bad. I want one in black. That looked SHARP

Just to muddy the waters... ;D called CS at Taurus also. Said March was the release time. Got my order in for one with night sights. We shall see if the Release Gods actually have them out of the Mount Olympus gates or not then. :)

Apparently they are a figment of our imagination at this point.
