I guy is selling an older 9mm 24/7 pro stainless. The take down pin style. Does not seem to show much use. I may be able to get it for 200. I would presume this is one of the recalled pistols? If it is and he did not have it done does Taurus pay for the shipping if I want to send it in? What is the overall opinion of this pistol? Thanks for any in put.

If it's in very good condition, I would just buy it to shoot it. I still like my 9mm 24/7 Pro!

Don't know if Taurus pays shipping, but if you're just looking to turn it in, just go out and buy a new Taurus G2C, for not a lot more cash.
That's all you would get in the settlement anyways.

If on the other hand you are looking for a very serious 9mm Handgun for not a lot of cash, look into the Canik TP9 Series or S&W SD9VE.
Not to say this Stainless 9mm 24/7 Pro would not be capable enough. Mine is still in my carry rotation.
With no ongoing support or parts from Taurus, it might not be a wise use of cash.

My advice is to buy it and shoot it. It is part of the recall, I believe. I have a 24/7 DS and it's one of the best 9's I own. I also have an XD9 and an M&P 9 and I like the DS better. Not sure if $200 is a great price, but it's not terrible. If you send it in to Taurus, you won't get it back.

So in summary, if you are looking for a pretty darn nice shooting pistol for not much cash out lay, and can accept the findings of the court and Taurus in the claim of function liabilities them this maybe one of your better deals to be had.

If you are looking to play the system of surrendering this pistol in exchange for cash or a replacement firearm, then I would keep on moving on. As it was pointed out, you can purchase a new PT111 or PH9 for near or even less. The PT111 will also include a Lifetime Warranty, where as the PH will be a one year limited warranty.

Personally I do have and will keep one of the Taurus pistols in 45acp that is subject to this lawsuit claim. I plan to keep in seeing no reason to surrender it when no like replacement is being offered.

Well thanks for the tips. If I can get him down more I may go for it. Not really looking to turn it back to Taurus. From what I read they will give you 200 or a pt111g2. I had one but traded it toward a Beretta px4 sub I got for a good price.

It could easily be argued that the street/retail/resell/fair market price of one of these Lawsuit Taurus is nearer to the $150-$175 range based on the amount of time it has taken the few that have received replacement firearms from Taurus. The $200 number often mentioned from the settlement was stated as a high that owners could receive, but the actual settlement dollar amount could be less depending on the number of individuals who request cash settlements over replacement of the firearm.

After giving it some thought I think were it me, I would look for a new PT111 at a $200 price point. It would come with full factory support and the Lifetime Warranty. The more I handle my PT111 pistols they remind me of a Glock priced at 60% off of retail.

Get it! I wanted a PT145 (a recall gun) for my carry rotation and figured if it ever did need a part, I'll use the usual source (e-gunparts.com and google) or perhaps buy a parts gun off one of the auction sites in the future. IOW, I'll deal with it. :D I don't expect that I'll ever need to worry about that, though. It's a solid gun. I've already got 3 or 4 hundred rounds through it and it's going fine. :D Now, I have a subcompact 9, but this PT145 has the firepower and compact size combination that I haven't found in any other .45ACP. THAT is why I wanted it. Turns out to be a danged good shooter, too. :D

This gives me five Taurus firearms, now, and I've had no trouble with ANY of 'em. Of course, 4 of 'em are revolvers. :D

I took this one out for a spin this morning. I'm still amazed by the ugly pug and love it dearly. In fact it's the only polymer striker fire I truly like. Yet it'll probably be the last gun I own, because with its' rep, no one seems to want to buy the thing.

I'm having problems with a new PT138 I just bought and called CS about it last Friday. They said they'd replace it with a PT111G2C or a Curve if I sent it in (and I would have to pay postage). They did offer to sell me parts (if they have them {which I doubt}) and I could have them installed myself.
