Well, they never could get my OSS to reliably fire in DA mode, so after 4 trips and a lot of hard work and honest effort on Taurus Customer Service's part I now have a new 24/7 G2 in 9mm. While I originally chose the OSS because I thought I woud like it better, after a few weeks and about 250 rounds, I have come to the conclusion that I wish I had chosen the G2 the first time around.

No matter what I did, including shooting from a rest, I could not get away from shooting low and left with the OSS, even after adjusting the rear sight enough that it "looked off center". From the first magazine, I have shot much better with the G2, and I like the fact that the rear sight is click adjustable both horizontally and vertically. I spent a few range periods getting use to the gun and getting some break in accomplished before even trying to adjust the sights. Finally today I took my homemade rest to the range and adjusted the sights to to zero it in. The picture attached shows the results of 20 rounds of 124 gr FMJ at 10 yards from the rest. The trigger is still a little rough so sometimes even from the rest I think I'm anticipating a little bit, but there is no doubt in my mind that the gun is a whole lot more accurate than I am. The trigger is getting better, even the SA mode, and I just need to spend more time with the snap caps.

I'm keeping a close watch to see if it slips out of SA mode into DA mode without using the decocker, as others have mentioned can happen. So far, I think it is good, but there have been a couple of instances where it changed modes and I didn't think I did anything, but it has never repeated so for now I'll blame myself. The drill to lock back the slide and pull the trigger to re-set to SA mode is becoming more familiar.

CONGRATS!! Glad to have another happy G2 owner onboard. Probably another 250 rounds, and some time shooting bad guys on TV WITH SNAP-CAPS, and the trigger will get much better. Even with all my 'issues', I think the G2 has a lot of upside to it. As of yesterday, I was still 'pending review', so I finally insisted to speak with Christian. Hopefully, it will be resolved soon.

Welcome to the 24/7 owner family I pray yours is as fun and reliable to shoot as mine in 40. I've had mine just under a year now and over 2500 rounds through it and runs great.

That's pretty good shooting, unless you were like 5 feet away (lol).

Good stuff, and good on you. You may wish to (assuming you have disassembly skills) take the trigger bar out and give it a nice little polish (kinda like a $.25 trigger job on a Glock). Good luck.

Build yourself a bench rest ;) I am no where near that good off hand (but I'm trying to get there).

Nice shooting, I have around 850 rounds through my G2 in 40 and really like it. The Trigger seemed to really smooth out after around 500 rounds.

This may help with setting it to S/A you don't need to lock the slide back to do this function. I carry mine in S/A make sure it is unloaded say after cleaning or what have you double check then dry fire it and hold the trigger back then cycle the slide now when you release the trigger it should be in S/A. This works fine for me without having to mess around with locking the slide back. Now you can load it for carry put a round in a mag place it in the mag well and chamber it, it will remain in S/A remove mag and finish loading and replace.

Been reading the forum but haven't had much to add to the discussion until the new gun arrived.

And Long_Shot, I will post pictures but in its current condition you'll get a better picture off the Taurus web site ;)

Thanks for the suggestion. Basically, anyway you have the trigger pulled with the slide back will lock the trigger in the SA position. It's interesting to see the locking action with the slide removed. Pull the trigger and you will see how a small lever drops over and holds the trigger in position. By locking the slide back, I can pull the trigger, load the magazine, and load a round as I release the slide. Only have to do it once a day no matter how I do it but with the slide locked back, I can verify it is empty one more time (I'm a wuss about safety, always have been).

I like the mechanism of the G2 over the OSS because with the G2 the striker is pulled back the same amount, and thus the spring force on the firing pin is the same, whether the gun is functioning in SA or DA mode. With the OSS, the striker came back only about 2/3 as far back in DA mode than it did in SA mode, resulting in a lighter hit in DA mode. I think this was the root cause of my problems with misfires with the OSS. That gun was probably just at the wrong end of all the tolerances.

To demonstrate, I cut a 12" piece out of a plastic clothes hanger. With the OSS held on the bench top pointinting up with the rod down the barrel, the rod would hit the ceiling in SA mode but fall more than a foot short in DA mode. With the G2 the rod just touches the ceiling in either mode.

You say that like it's a problem. Most of the 'real gun guys' just use their x-ray vision to verify the empty chamber. :D

Finally got the camera out, so here are some pics: First one is for us right handers and the second is for the lefties. And finally, one with its "little friend".

I wanted a concealable sub-compact and did a lot of on line study. I was already leaning toward the LC9 when it became available from Ruger with the laser. Then when my LGS got a Ruger award and put most of the Rugers on sale (LC9 with Lasermax for $369 is hard to beat) it put me over the edge. I've got a Remora with the full sweat protector that I like a lot. I also added the Pachymar slip on grip that makes it even more fun to shoot. It isn't as accurate as the 24/7 G2 (neither am I) but shooting with the laser is a lot of fun and the sights aren't bad either.

Nice gun porn! :D My EDC is the SR9C in a Remora, and really like it. I was hoping to 'upgrade' my EDC to the previously mentioned G2C-45, but it's still in Miami. I've been alternating between the Ruger and a Sig P238. I was looking at the LC9, but heard there was a trigger 'issue'. How has yours been??
