shot my 24/7 for first time today (finally),was excited. after the last round is fired, the slide will not remain in the open position. same for both mags. used federal 115 gr. sending it off to taurus tomorrow, hope it's just a simple adjustment. every round did fire great, so the glass is half full. will let you all know the outcome.

Bummer, I know you have waited a while to shoot it. Hopefully Taurus will be able to get it back to you really quick.

On the Slide Stop, there's a projection that is lifted by the Magazine Follower. Check to see if it's properly mating up with the Magazine Follower or if it's even there. If it's not there, you just need a new Slide Stop Pin. Taurus Customer Service will probably send you one, free.

You also might look at the magazine. Take the magazine and look at the follower to see that it travels all the way to the top position freely without any binding by pushing it down with your finger and letting it come back up under your finger. Do not let the spring pressure snap it back up. You can take the magazine apart and clean the insides and look at the follower to see if there are any protrusions on it. If there are any, sand them down smooth. This can cause it not to travel all the way up and hold the slide stop up. You can insert the follower in the upside down magazine and see if it slides freely from top to bottom when you turn it over and over. If it hangs anywhere inside, after you have sanded the sides, take a flat blade screwdriver and stick the blade in to the area that seems to hang or slow the follower down and twist the screwdriver to make contact with both sides of the magazine and pry it a little to spread them apart. Little pressure goes a long way. Pull the blade out and drop the follower back in and see if it is free.

Definitely check this out before sending it in. I had an issue with a PT145 mag that was quickly solved by removing a small burr on the inside of the mag that kept the follower from returning all the way up.
