I didn't notice this until I got home and started looking at the pictures I took of some of the 24/7 pistols.



Notice the "DS" designation at the end of the model #. It is also on the 24/7 Pro Titanium. Anyone know what the "DS" signifies?

Something else that caught my attention on the 24/7 OSS and the 24/7 Pro Titanium. They both have an indicator that shows if the gun is cocked or not. It is the little rectangle above the striker cover. It's painted orange and when cocked it is flush with the back of the pistol. When decocked it is recessed. I don't know if this is new or not, but it's new to me. ;D

DS = Decocker Safety

Push up past the safety ON position and it decocks the pistol to double action mode, hence the orange indicator.

I see there going back to 3 dot sights I hope. I'm getting used to the Heinie eights but have a bad right eye and would like the option of 3 dot configuration I think you have more options and outside sites that would fit. Thats one nice looking carry gun!

He would cut down the shear volume of BS in Washington DC by at least 1/2. Uncle Ted tells it like it is. He don't sugar coat it.

Doc, did you get any pictures of the left side of that gun? I'd be interest to see the safety, particularly if there is an extra dot there that might indicate that you can push it upward.....

Unfortunately, no I did not. Yeah, I know, I suck. I have already docked myself one day's pay.

IIRC, it does no have a dot above the safety dot.

Same safety as the 24/7 OSS. No extra dot to indicate decock position, just push up against spring pressure.

I assume that would also mean that the since you can decock the new 24/7 you should be able to engage the safety lock with a chambered round. Man, I wish that I had thought of this stuff while I was at the booth.
At the risk of giving the legal department at Taurus fits, I just tried locking the T.S.S. lock on my OSS with a snap cap in the chamber and the striker decocked, and it does work. On the OSS, however, you have to have the thumb safety off, as the ambi safety blocks the lock from camming out all the way.

Nice. Thanks blr358. The safety being on or off doesn't bother me at all as long as the lock can be engaged.
