View Full Version : PT24'7 or Stoeger

15-03-2009, 05:57 PM
I have added P22 Walther to my collection and now have a choice to make between a Taurus 24_7 or a Stoeger any advice

Stoeger. It's more more realiable however the 24/7 is much more comfortable to fire.

Congrats on the P22 you have a nice new member in your (gun) family

Kept both, personally would prefer Stoeger (or anything) over a Taurus

If you must limit yourself to the two suggested, I would say Stoeger. 24/7 is probably the worst of Taurus models.

I personally dont like either. They wont look good next to you SW revolver. I have been looking for that since SW makes good revolvers.

Independant of your question I would recommend CZ100. One of our members recently mentioned that they were available some where in Lahore.

CZ-100 9mmpistol is available at Malik & sons for 90K.it is also striker fired pistol without any manual saftey.
and i will vote for Stoeger Cougar pistol.Taurus 24/7 feels very good in hands.but have few issues with POF ammo.

I've heard some bad things about the 24/7 in 9mm but its supposed to be ok in .45
Stoeger's got great performance reviews. But I don't think you get any accessories or magazines if you need. I agree with FP, I don't rate it highly on looks; or grip comfort.

Between the two Stoger is more reliable, personally I don't lime it though. Taurus is junk.

I have four Taurus pistols all sub standard. I make that statement with experience. I wonder how many others have actually tried it.

Didn't Taurus win the American NRA handgun of year award for 1995 and 1996? I think the issue may be with the bullets, some series of mags etc. and may be, naturally, some defective pieces as well. Mostly, I think it is great. But I am the only one, I have noticed, who likes 24/7 Pro. So maybe, either my gun is an exception or may be it is my lack of expertise in this area that makes me think it is a good one. Anyways, I am sure I will never buy a Taurus again. Can't be lucky all the time. Whenever I buy a gun next time, I will take the PakGunners with me to the market. Regards.

i have stoeger and taurus 24/7 fired...i have fired around 400 rounds on stoeger without a single misfire or FTF n FTE ...and with taurus not a misfire but FTF 2wice ...taurus is comfortable but not accurate shooter ...while stoeger is accurate shooteri have fired 100 rounds on taurus ..these where also witnessed by our fellow members sqdnlr shariq and osam

I must have fired over 600 rounds (POF WAH & CHINESE)with my TAURUS 24/7 pro till now. Last time on SATURDAY at range fired around 100 rounds. So far got no issue with this gun. Till now had just one FTF issue and that was also because of the ammo.

the only reason i dun like 24 is that frame.it looks too groovy. stoger looks elegant.

16-03-2009, 05:28 PM
Thanks everyone of u. I will go for a Stoeger and maybe also add a Taurus .22LR Revolver which is highly recommended by my friends at PARA Arms Lahore

16-03-2009, 05:55 PM
.22 revolvers by Taurus and Rossi are probably the worst handguns I have ever used.

16-03-2009, 06:01 PM
firepower seems to dislike taurus products maybe he is right becoz of their cheap use...well i would say the best of taurus is pt 99 which many forums TFL and others say is the best 9mm they rank it as 5th best after berreta 92 but many say its better than berreta 92

16-03-2009, 06:09 PM
I have no experience with pt92. I simply stay clear of Taurus after going through 4 pt 24/7 that did not work well.
