I'm looking to find one. Just want to see who found them for a decent price including shipping and such. Also looking for extra magazines and a grip extender. Any help is appreciated. Thanks. :)

For 709 magazines, check the Google Shopping Bot:
taurus 709 magazine - Google Product Search

For grips, I have used the small Hogue Handall Jr. grips;
Hogue, Inc. | www.getgrip.com | The finest gun grips, rifle stocks and accessories
I have put several on 709 and 740 pistols, and they fit perfectly with minor trimming around the magazine latch. Heating one with a hairdryer softens it slightly, but that is not always necessary.

The Hogue HandAll Jr. is readily available for well under $10

It is a LaserLyte:

AMAZON has it in stock (but read the review posted on Amazon!)

I had the rear sight laser on my 709 and the Crimson Trace laser on my Ruger LCP.
Of the two, I preferred the CT.
With the LaserLyte, you have to push a button twice to turn it on - something that might cause fumbling when the chips are down.
With the CT, the laser is activated as soon as you get a grip on the pistol.

You can find two types of magazine extensions that lengthen your grip/magazine on eBay. Neither provides more magazine capacity. I bought the ones shown in this eBay auction: 220890085116 and am happy with them. They significantly lengthen the grip and allow all your fingers on as opposed to your pinky hanging off with the factory mag base installed.
