I just bought a taurus 24/7 9mm hand gun, this gun is very hard to load, is there a easier way to load, than pushing the bullet down with your thumb

I know what you mean.
My Glock 34 has a 15 round clip and you are wore out loading it.

A thumb compressor is probably the best.

The model 34 glock is a range gun.
9 mm it shoots well, better than what I thought it would.
I had been use to revolvers.
Light weight and accurate.
All in all a fun gun to go plinking with.

My CZ75 came with one of the cheaper styles of 'thumbsavers'. It works just fine, and is WAY better than using my thumb.

I have this gun also...it is very hard to load and hard to put back together after you take it apart to clean it. I like it though...good gun...

I've never owned a 24-7. THe only Tauruses I've ever had were the PT92AF and PT99AF. I've been pretty satisfied with them, especially the 99 (I like the adjustable sights!) But I did a search and came up with this You-Tube video, I thought you all might want to check out:



Pretty impressive weapon.

Terry, over time, your mags will become easier to load. I don't own a 24/7, but I own a couple of other autos with double stack mags, which seem to be harder to load than single stack (Ruger P95, Glock 23). The Glock was really tough. If you buy other mags, I've had good luck with Mec-Gar in the Ruger.

HKS makes a complete line of speed loaders that take all the pain away. I have 4 different models for different guns. They work great.

I just bought a taurus pt 24/7 9mm and I LOVE IT!
Only put about 300 rounds so far but no hicups. Used Wolf, American Eagle, and PMC. All shot well and was fairly accurate(about 4-4 1/2 inches at 20 yards).
Love the trigger and the feel. Great gun for a great price. The only issue is taking the gun apart the release pin is a little stiff and needs a gentle pry to get it out.

I am quite satisfied with the Taurus 24/7 9mm. I have used Wolf, American Eagle, Sellier & Bellot, Winchester, and Remington. Easily over a thousands rounds without a single problem.

The issues with taking the firearm apart are somewhat legit. However, it gets much easier with practice. The first time I did it was a little difficult, but if you clean it after every use, it get much easier.

The same goes with loading the magazine. At first, it is tough, but things loosen up the more you use it. Someone mentioned getting a LULA loader- I would certainly endorse that recommendation. If it really bothers your thumb, get a LULA loader. However, if you just got your Taurus, give it some time. I would have liked a LULA at first, but now I just don’t see it as completely necessary.

Yes - sell it and get a Springfield XD9.

Just kidding. It should loosen up for you after a bit.

My wife had the same problem - she got used to it, plus the magazine spring loosened up a little. Combination of added strength and breaking in.

Also - you can get some snap caps and practice loading it. That will help with both strengthening your fingers and breaking in the magazine.

Getting good .22 ammo to load properly is a bitch in a lot of guns. My wife has a Taurus .22 cal 9-shot revolver, and the only ammo I have gotten to work properly in that is the CCI Velocitor (hollow-point) or CCI Mini-Mag (copper top, round nose) ammmo. Even in the revolver, the wrong ammmo will prevent the cylinder from turning properly. But that CCI has been smooth as silk every time.

We have same problem in a Marlin model 60 .22 semi automatic rifle. All the ammo we have tried jams all the time, but the CCI feeds properly and shoots right every time.

The CCI is a little more expensive than the big boxes of Remington that you can get for $11.00 (550 shells), but it still comes out at about $5.00 a box for 100. The Remington won't feed right in any of our .22's, but the CCI works perfect.

Kewl, thanx for the advice. I will definitely try that out this weekend when I go to the range.

WOAH!

Back to what the guy said above about how to load the PT92 gun..

I have a PT92 and I love it, however i had the same problem.. i could hardly load the thing to 13 rounds in a 17 round mag.

This is what i did.. Me and my older brother squeezed and pushed and forced it till we got 16 rounds in each mag then we left it there for a solid 2 weeks. Right now you are using a spring that has never been fully compressed, so the best way to loosen up the spring is to keep it compressed for 2 or 3 weeks. I finally shot my gun after 2 weeks of prep and the mags loaded to full capacity with ease, no problem at all.

try that before you go out and drop more money for a dumb speed loader.
