I've used Magtec 180 gr. Took another look and was surprised by what I found. Anyone know where their design came from or have any major observations of what they're similar to? I'm a new shooter, it took a little getting used to but after the first 50 or so rounds I was right on target. Need to work on accuracy, not sure if it's the gun or me. It's one of the first pistols in 9mm that my wife is able to shoot comfortably she has small hands, and has bad wrists from a previous injury.
I use silhouette targets and missed about a dozen out of 100 rounds. The stronger spring is especially recommended when using extra power recoil springs above. Taurus is, in my opinion, teh best lower priced gun out there. I've only had the chance to put 200 rounds through it but not a single malfunction. I like the sights, weight keeps me aware of it while carrying and while shooting. Recoil Springs are available with load-rated specifications to tailor the recoil function to individual needs.

Whatever the case, I'm not going to screw with the frame. It was a tough decision between it and something else Bersa Thunder 9 Fullsize but I concluded that there would be more support for the Taurus in the case of an O-ban-a. I compared the two side by side. I also like Kel-Tec in that price range but I think I'd take a Taurus over a Kel-Tec if forced to pick. Service Pak - Type I.
I did finally get to shoot the 909, and it fired flawlessly. The 909, 911, and such do indeed have the Browning cam tilting barrel system. The gun is comfortable, even for my medium sized hands. Also wouldn't mind a short trigger but I haven't seen them advertised anywhere if anyone knows where I can pick one up please let me know. The mags look otherwise identical.
We work hard to bring the best gun discussion! Not as smooth as I may have hoped, but it works. Even though I'm right handed I'm considering switching the mag release because it's kind of a stretch to reach it on the left side. The magazines fit inside just as well but the mag catch notch is a little bit higher on the 909 mag. I may wait till I have another toy to do it. We all know it's not a Colt, Springfield or Kimber but also doesn't cost nearly as much. Each load-rated recoil spring pak includes an extra power firing pin spring.
. Just got the ball rolling on a 909. Most of Taurus's guns are derived from another design. Consider upgrading your membership for less than a box of bullets! And even the guns based on other designs are still developed further so that Taurus has something unique to offer, except of course with the 1911. That way no mods to the mags would be needed.
I've never shot a Taurus I didn't like. Other than a few small issues with it I'm really pleased with it's performance. For reference, Ruger and 1911 have a link tilting barrel. Magazine Springs are available in +5% and +10% extra power allowing a choice of springs for optimum magazine performance. . .
