    i have also considered and discussed with seniors the same facts for so many times but could not explore the reality,why these guns r known as crap in Pakistan by most of users while a few r happy ,why almost every user of 809, 24/7 Taurus whom i know wants to sell his pistol,I m sure members will solve this mystery in this thread

    simply to the point ... I have one , it's V.accurate, less weight,low recoil,excellent triger pull but the problem is that sometimes bullet jam in the chamber FTF's ...... (chinese , POF,russian wolf) pt809 does not accept them excluding pt92 and 99 model all the model's of taurus jam FTF's ... and if u closely see the firing pin of taurus is small considering other handgun's for e.g glock,caracal,cz,hk e.t.c.

    the only Complain about 809 and 24/7 is they r Ammo sensitive and yes seniors should Mention the Fact of these Guns .

    it is ofcourse a lovely gun but it doesn't accept every bullet, mostly american ... thats why majority of people don't keep them.

    So many say the same thing for its Ammo sensitivity ,taurus should prevent the problem .

    I own PT809E and fired nearly 100 shots... Different kind of bullets. Had problem with POF it jammed my firing pin. It was not big deal just a little cleaning of grease and it was all good to go. But I changed my firing pin with a desi made firing pin and till then no problem at all.

    @Khan tanoli is absolutely right it has a smaller firing pin as compare to other known weapons in market.

    Other than that it is an absolute beauty.

    I have been using 809E for the past one year and have not encountered any problem, whatsoever. Our friends who mentioned not liking it need to go in to a little more detail and share the reasons supporting their POV. I have used Red Box Chinese ammo with a round count of 400+ but have yet to see any FTF, FTE etc.
    We all surely would be very interested in hearing exact facts and not hearsay. PT809E has proven its worth to me and has been a dead accurate sidearm despite the fact that according to many I used the most lowlife ammo in the market. lol
