Introducing the Taurus SPECTRUM™—a groundbreaking new micro-pistol designed, engineered and manufactured in the USA. Its breakthrough design completely reimagines the concealed carry experience. Delivering better comfort, better responsiveness and better control.
Bridging design with ergonomics, the Taurus SPECTRUM™ is a truly exceptional blend of comfort and functionality.
Traditional slide serrations are replaced with a stylish design that allows the fingers to engage indentations on the slide.
Provides positive contact points for enhanced traction—minimizing short strokes while racking and enhancing safety.
Soft-touch material enhances traction and creates a comfortable manipulation when chambering a round.
Safe, long and smooth 7-9 pound trigger offers the crisp release common to a striker-fired system.
Unique to Taurus, this true double-action only trigger system features a non-energized striker with no pre-cock or pre-load applied—ensuring no contact between the sear and striker.
For additional safety, the Taurus SPECTRUM™ comes equipped with a striker block providing peace of mind for everyday carry.
Keeping safety in mind, the trigger does not have to be pulled to disassemble the gun. Take down requires only one turn on the take down pin separating the slide assembly from the frame.
Soft-touch proprietary polymers are used to improve grip retention in wet or dry conditions—providing a stable, firm grip and maximizing comfort.
My fave local pawn shop got these in stock today, so I had to go check it out for myself. I am a huge fan of the PT 738. Since this is basically the replacement I needed to know. I am current LEO, and considering this a backup / ankle gun. Robert from Canton, MI is correct. It has a long pull trigger, the trigger is certainly thick, and I did jerk on the first pull. I love the sleek look of the gun, however the feel leaves a bit to be desired. I had several issues getting the extended magazine to load cleanly. The flush fitting magazine had the same issue. The mag release is very small and doesn't properly get it out. It took an extra tug to release. A quick combat reload isn't gonna happen. It did shoot pretty decent, however as with most .380 it's snappy. True to its market, it's better as a backup gun. There were some minor feeding issues on the first 25 rounds i once again the extended magazine has some issues. Not sure I trust it yet as a primary CC. I know this is the first batch, so I will give some Taurus some time to work out the kinks.
I got this 3 days ago, and went to shoot today. It has a long pull trigger, you jerk on the first pull. Not sure of the true pounds of pull but I would guess it's about 8 or 9 pounds. I love the look and feel of the gun. It shoots very well no, problems at all. Once you get 3 or 4 shots off, you start to get a good grouping. I waited to get one for along time and now I'm glad I did. As far as how it shoots, its like a LCP 2, at 7 to 10 yards I was getting a 1 1/2" grouping with 2 outside of that but still with in a 2 1/2", I shot 18 shots. Hell, it shoots better than a Colt Mustang. This is a true review, I can't say nothing but good for this gun. You will love it.
