Can anyone advice me about the performance of Taurus 24/7 OSS .45 ACP ? I am looking to change my weapon from 9mm to .45.

If Possible can anyone tell me hands on experience of Taurus OSS. U can see the pics from the below Link:


I have heard that Taurus have FTF problems when coupled with Chinese ammunition ? is it true ? Czech rounds works good ?

Also can anyone advice me from where i can buy Taurus 1911 .45 ACP in Karachi and for how much ?

Same with me.. I am also thinking of buying a Taurus OSS .45ACP but couldn't find one in Peshawar market.
Taurus 1911 is available in Peshawar for 75 to 80K.. doesn't know about Karachi market.

Here in karachi 1911 is short or maybe the dealer dont know much about this gun. I got 1 person who was asking 130k that's ridiculous amount of money for 70-80k weapon.

Any one else shed light in Taurus OSS Please ?

I have seen one OSS which malfunctioned after 400 rounds. Problem with extractor. No such problem with PT 1911

Best for .45 is any 1911 . Other cheaper option is cz 97 or one can go for a GLOCK 21

Dr Zakir brother any comparison between Glock 21 and H&K USP .45ACP ??

Yehhhh A comparison will be good.... but both of the guns have stellar prices and I cannot afford them...... I need a review on Taurus OSS.

shoby80 bro, OSS in .45acp is not available in our market; AFAIK. I had OSS in 9mm and used it for hundreds of round without any problem, being slim in profile was a great large frame pistol to CC using proper holster & clothing. Tried my best to get one in .45 to complete the pair but didnot find any despite of involving all the big Lahore dealers in this search, so replaced it with CZ Phantom just to ease the CZ itch down ;)

i did handle a oss but felt its balance is totally out.barrel heavy.
did u feel the same.

Thanks Denovo Bro... i think i better took out Taurus OSS .45 out... and look for Taurus 1911 .45.

One thing more Denovo87, which Ammo did you used in your Taurus OSS 9x19mm.

CZ phantom is nice weapon :) ..

Mitho bro; yes it feels so but as soon as a mag (full) is inserted balance moves right to the middle.

Shoby80 bro; used everything available in our market from POF to NATO without a single failure, even POF reloads (that are abundantly available in the market these days n being sold as originals) went flawlessly through OSS but in CZ's (Phantom, Rami, Shadow) they give a headache at range.

Nice to hear that.... it worked with every ammo..... whereas i have tried PT 24/7 Titanium 4-5 times.... it wasn't firing with every type of ammo tried Norinco (chinese) POF and others ... it was only working fine with Sellier & Bellot 9x19mm FMJ's. Every other type of ammo is FTF (fire).

usp all the way . it is the best after 1911

I would second the senior members and would say that 1911 is a better option in .45 caliber. So if someone wants to shift at all from 9 mill to .45, he should go for a 1911. PT-1911 is a great affordable choice.

Thanks for all the information... i should begin my search for Taurus 1911..... :) ...

A friend told me yesterday that he wants to sell his PT 1911 with additional grips for Rs. 65k in Lahore. He is well known shooter.

Taurus keep the new models coming and then making it disappear then. PARA recent taurus shipment doesn't include OSS or G2 in .45, i was also interested in a 12-shot .45acp.
