Taurus Offers New Version Of The Popular OSS

New for 2008 Taurus offers this incredible sidearm in a stunning Stainless Steel version with black checkered grips in .45 ACP, .40 cal and 9mm. Developed through feedback from Special Forces teams stationed around the world, the Taurus 24/7 OSS is one of the most advanced firearms in the history of pistol making.

Built to meet and/or exceed all requirements laid down by the US Special Operations Command (SOCOM) for its new sidearm, this extreme duty pistol offers unprecedented reliability, accuracy and durability in real-world situations. Capable of firing tens of thousands of failure-free rounds in virtually any environment, whether it be jungle humidity and mud, desert heat and sand, or arctic cold and ice, Taurus packed the 24/7 OSS with features that real-world professionals need.

Taurus Sidearm

The performance of the 24/7 OSS is due in part to Taurus’ most recent industry-changing innovation – the Single Action/Double Action trigger system. Firing normally in a smooth single action mode, if the primer ever fails to ignite, the gun reverts to a double-action mode to provide a life-saving second or third try at a faulty cartridge – giving the 24/7 OSS a failure-free reliability no other pistol on the market has matched.

When field-stripping the 24/7 OSS, users will discover an 18.5 lb. recoil spring that cycles the slide faster, a heavy Match Grade 5¼” barrel forged from ordnance grade steel and a stainless steel guide rod that adds just the right amount of front end weight for improved recoil control, rapid fire accuracy and quicker follow-up shots.

The 24/7 OSS features an aggressive checkered grip that allows for a glue-like purchase on the gun even with sweaty hands. Ambidextrous Indexed Memory Pads along the frame provide an automatic finger locator for safe firearm handling as well as an aid for quick and accurate aim when using a traditional two-handed grip. An integral Picatinny rail system that accommodates slide-on lights or laser sights, SA/DA indicator on the rear of the slide that shows whether the pistol is in “cocked” or “decocked” mode, front slide serrations and reversible magazine release combine for increased versatility.

The 24/7 OSS features ambidextrous decock/safety levers that allow the user to carry the gun with the striker cocked and ready to fire, and can then be kept in safety-on “cocked and locked” mode. The user can also release the internal striker without discharging the chambered round by simply pushing upwards on the safety lever, which then places the pistol in double-action mode. You can then carry the gun in double action mode with or without the safety on.

The pistol comes standard with a visual loaded chamber indicator and the unique Taurus Security System that allows users to securely lock the gun. MSRP $623.00 - 686.00.

In 1941 the company produced its first revolver, and in 1984 changed the industry forever by offering its customers an unqualified LIFETIME REPAIR POLICY, posting record growth every year since.
