(not sure what section to post this in _ mods please move if needed)

While looking at the What's New section on Taurususa.com I saw the TH series listed. I have read about them previously but heard they were not coming to the states. Looks like a 809 with the PT111 G2 grip stippling.

Funny. I just saw those today too. Odder still, the Spectrum isn't in the current Taurus line up, even though it's splashed on the main page and is already in stores.

Several wholesalers are listing the TH series, but not the TS... Is Taurus having issues with the striker fired gun???

Very nice to see even more truth to the rumor that we may get them here. I was hoping for a 40S&W but, hey, I reload for 9mm too. Beggers can't be choosers :)

Personally, I'd say there are too many darn good .40s out there to pick that 9mm. Offer it in .40 if you want my business.

My supposition or theory is that they will use up current production runs of the PT-111 Millennium G2 to cover most of the replacement recalls before anything of a different caliber or possibly even the TH being released. There might be some overlap with the TH, but probably will not offer it as a replacement pistol. Maybe in time with the class action enhanced warranty other calibers and both hammer and striker pistols will become an option.

The TS will come a little later after the last runs of the PT-111 G2 is out and they discontinue it.

It is a little sad that they do not at least offer the PT-140 .40 caliber as a replacement for turned in guns that are .40 or .45 or replace stainless with stainless. I give Taurus a little bit of a break though because of the financial situation that they are in.

It could be that the last production run of the PT-111 G2 has already occurred and the TH will actually hit the shelves early. If that's the case, the TS will not be far behind. I could be completely wrong with this line of thought.

Yeah. It looks like the two pistol's offspring.

I understand where you're coming from and, when it came down to actually purchasing it, I may feel the same way but I already have the 840C so it coiuld either be redundant or I'd have a fresh pistola of the same ergos... don't know which way I feel about it.

Did anyone else notice that the status of it says it's available under the description? Also, it definitely has a decocker function if you're into that sort of thing.

Looking at the spec sheets on the Taurus website here are the differences I found between the 809 and TH full size models:

809
Weight 30.2oz
Barrel 4"
Length 8.25"
MSRP $486

TH
Weight 28.2oz
Barrel 4.27"
Length 7.72"
MSRP $359

Interesting since they look so similar.

I like the lower MSRP which will hopefully translate to a $250+/- street price?

Out of curiosity I called Taurus customer service and inquired about the TH Series availability. They said that these items were still in "production" and didn't have any other details or an ETA on their availability.

Has anyone seen them advertised at a online retailer?

OK, at Yitty's request, I checked out the TH series at the SHOT Show today in Vegas. Here's a photo of both versions. The guy I talked to--who's hold them for my photo--said they are expecting a release around May. Take that with a grain of salt, though, as they never seem to get released when they plan. But that's what they said. They aren't in the current catalog they have at the show because they were too new and they didn't have time to get them in before they went to press.

They have features of both Glocks and Berettas. They are both single-action and double action with a decocker (Beretta). They kind of feel like a Glock in your hand, though, and have the Glock-like release to remove the slide. It felt like a decent gun in my hand, although I don't have any Taurus autos (I have 14 Taurus revolvers).

If you have other questions, post and I'll go back tomorrow.

Much appreciated! I'm curious if these will take 809 magazines, which will confirm (or maybe deny) that it's a refreshing of that model. Thanks again!

Could you please ask them if they are going to release a 380 acp model

Thanks

I handled the TH series pistols today. We even took them apart to a field strip level. The ones at the show are very nice. Beautifully crafted. They take down like a PT111 G2. They use the same sight dovetails as the earlier pistols pre-G2, so night sights are already available.

I wasn't actually thinking much about these pistols before the booth visit this morning, and came away really impressed.

Also, Taurus (actually Rossi) showed a little .22 caliber semi-auto rifle. It was beautiful, has adjustable sights and has an MSRP of $139 or $149. It looked like a shocking amount of plinking fun for the money. I don't see it on any websites, so I suppose I should have taken a photo.

Good looking pistol, but they look like they have a high bore axis, like SIGS.
