1. Novak Night Sight – The Novak Night Sight is a self-luminous night sight. Night sights are proven to give shooters five times greater night fire accuracy – with the same speed as instinctive shooting.
2. Taurus Security System – The Taurus Security System operates with a key and is a hardly noticeable. It is accessed by very small round screw head above the thumb safety on the right-hand side of the slide, and can be rapidly activated and de-activated. In the locked position, the firearm will not release the safety.
3. Ambidextrous Thumb Safety – Even though the 24/7 is striker fired, it can be carried cocked and locked by moving the thumb safety up from the firing position to the safety position. If the thumb safety is pushed up all the way up the 24/7 is de-cocked. When the safety is in the cocked and locked mode and pushed to the firing position the trigger pull is approximately 6-1/2 pounds; if the pistol has been de-cocked it can still be fired by moving the lever to the firing position, however it requires considerably more than 6-1/2 pounds to fire the 24/7. If for some reason the 24/7 fails to fire the pistol is now in the de-cocked mode and the trigger can be pulled again for another chance at a recalcitrant cartridge.
4. Checkered Polymer Grip – The aggressive checkered grip allows a glue like purchase on the gun, even with sweaty or bloody hands.
5. SA/DA Trigger System – The Taurus 24/7 OSS features Taurus’ revolutionary Single Action/Double Action trigger system that fires normally from a smooth single action mode, yet, if a primer fails to ignite, it provides a life-saving second try at firing a faulty cartridge a feature no other pistol on the market offers.
