Watch What Happens When These Taurus Pistols Are Dropped, Then Learn About The Lawsuit

Published

The above video is slow motion footage that shows three Taurus pistols (PT 24-7 .40, PT 24-7 .45, PT111 9mm) during a simulated drop. The results are less than desirable and have sparked a lawsuit that is making it’s way through the courts.

Here are the alleged happenings in the above video:

This lawsuit is about alleged safety defects in the following Taurus-branded firearms: PT-111 Millennium; PT-132 Millennium; PT-138 Millennium; PT-140 Millennium; PT-145 Millennium; PT-745 Millennium; PT-609; PT-640; and/or PT-24/7. The “PRO” series of each model are also included. The lawsuit asserts that these alleged safety defects may cause some Class Pistols to unintentionally fire with the safety in the “on” or “safe” position when the trigger is pulled and some Class Pistols may unintentionally fire when dropped or bumped. The Taurus Companies stand by the Class Pistols and vigorously deny all allegations of wrongdoing and liability. The lawsuit does not involve Taurus G2 model pistols.
