What are the primary differances? I have yet to handle a 24/7 compact but have rented a Mill Pro and now I see budsgunshop.com lists the 24/7 compact. So.........What are the differances?

Thanks all,
Have a blessed Thanksgiving

I really don't understand the benefit of a concealment gun with a full size grip. Grip size (especially length) affects concealability more than barrel/slide length or width. Plus, it looks really funny if you ask me. Its like a skinny chick with a real big, rubberized rear.

I am a fan of the PT111, because I own one.

But the 24/7 seems to be just a bit larger in the 9 MM.
Length: 6-3/8"
Width: 1-1/4"
Height: 5-1/2"
The Mil Pro pt111 is
Length: 6-1/8"
Width: 1.125"
Height: 5.125"
In the PT145 it is a dif size also it has that kind of difference.
Length: 6"
Width: 1.125"
Height: 5.2"
Everyone says they shoot good, I am still learning. But Size can matter as well as weight if your gonna carry all day and your grip. Single stack, double stack, 12 rds, 13 rds, 17 rd. so there are many things to consider.

"Are the magazines interchangeable btwn the Mill PT111 Pro and the 24/7 Pro?"

I heard they were, but thus far, I have not been able to verify that.

the local shop where I do most of my looking did not have the compact 24/7, or any of the 17 rd mags for me to check in my PT111.

I am scheduled to pick up a replacement Mag tomorrow, and hopefully they got in both sizes, or a compact 24/7 so I can compare. I would love a couple 17 rd mags to back up the 12 rd ones that I have.

I finally went out and bought the 24/7 magazine, 17 +1, for my PT111 PRO. As it turned out the magazine does fit and work with the PT111 PRO 3rd gen pistol. Of course, the magazine is slightly larger than the 12 round magazine that comes with the PT111 PRO, but a little duck tape placed btwn the space at the end of the gun handle and the magazine as a filler works just fine. I fired the PT111 PRO with the 24/7 mag, about 100 rounds, and no problems. I will be looking to purchase several other 24/7 mags as soon as I can.

Well i bought my 24/7 pro in .45 a week ago and when i was looking at the diff. pros (pro & pro c) i noticed the pro c has a shorter handle i did not ask the man that sold it to me if it has the same capacity as the pro mainly because they did not have a .45 pro c but if you looking for a 9mm both are nice CCW's(mill & 24/7)
i am glade i stuck with the 4" barrel on the pro and not the pro c which i had gone to buy. I could not imagine the recoil on that stubby thing in the .45 cal (even though my glock buddy shot my .45 and he said it has less kick then his glock 22 .40 cal)

The 24/7 compact has a 3.3" barrel and the mil-pro has a 3.125" barrel. Own the pt145 and the recoil is less then some 9mm's. Suprised me. Love the little gun :D

Do have a PT111 Mil/pro. 10 to 12 cartridges in a magazine ( some states or municipalities allow only 10 in a magazine. Check local laws on this.) that carries flatter than a snub revolver, with a spare mag included gives one comfort.
This is easier to shoot than snubbies and I do have an 85CH Taurus snub. Still enjoy shooting the 85CH, but the PT111 is more ergonomic.

Seems to be less recoil with standard pressure ammo which I prefer for short barreled pistols. +P is a case of diminishing returns with sub-compact pistols. Shorty barrels do waste the energy of +P. There's not a huge velocity gain by going to +P in shorty barrels. Gun powder and energy that would develop are wasted for the most part outside the shorty barrel.
There seems to be more of a push with recoil versus the snap of the snubbie.

Grip circumference is such that a varied group of different sized handed people can get a good solid grip on the pistol.

The above link is just an overall general take small pistol shooting and it's vagaries along with ammo ones.

Do like the PT111 over the 24/7 small variants, but that's due to personal choice and personal fit.

Try these out at local gun stores if possible and then pick one that is right for you. Could be the 24/7 will fit better that a PT111.
