taurus 24/7 gen 1 vs. 24/7 gen. 2
my first handgun was a taurus 24/7 9mm...its been nothing but 100% reliable with 7-8K+ rounds downrange and one single FTE when the gun was taken out of the box and test-fired by me on the seller's indoor range. after the grease from the factory was cleaned out and the gun lubed, it has never failed me...
but, i can not stand the super-long factory DA only trigger pull...its hard to be accurate with such a long pull and long re-set; if you have a 24/7, you know what i'm talking about. i figured i would 'get used to it', but it still bothers me and i would not buy another gun with such a shitty trigger...the way the gun felt in my hand was the reason i chose the taurus over another well known polymer wonder gun
from what i've read, the new 24/7 G2 has some sort of DA/SA trigger setup...and i haven't had a chance to get to the fun store to play with one. however, i would probably buy one in 9mm and one in .45 if they have decent triggers(or aftermarket parts available). one for the glovebox backup and one for the B.O.B.
so has anyone spent some time shooting the 1st and 2nd gen guns? how is the G2's trigger in SA and DA, and how does it compare to the gen 1? also, anyone had any trigger work done to your gen 1 24/7 ?
I don't know anything about the Gen 2, I have a Gen 1 .40. What long trigger pull are you talking about? Are you talking about the slack in the trigger?
If I'm not mistaken the 24/7's have had the DA/SA triggers for a little while now, even before the G2. You're right though the DA pull is quite long. For me the big new feature of the G2 is the Safety Striker "decocker" I will probably acquire a G2 compact in 45 ACP...12 + 1 model
I have the OSS, it was out before the G2. It's a single action with a decocker. The SA pull has a long take-up but a short reset, it's fairly light pull, not too bad. The double action pull is pretty atrocious.
