The 709 “Slim” is a new single action only sub-compact 9mm from Taurus.

“SLIM” is the name of this suave new entry into the Taurus line. Elegant in Blue and Stainless this small, single-action-only could be found under a cummerbund or a pair of bibs. It’s what you have been asking for! No revealing lumps or lines makes concealed carry easier than that larger capacity gun you already have. Cool, neat and ready to go-the Taurus Slim will be your companion for a long time to come.

    I have the pt709 ss I do love the pistol ,,, fires great , has not jammed after 500 rounds , I have one problem is there a way to change the trigger pull, it seems to not fire till it is almost at the trigger guard, and very hard to pull that last bit, any ideas or is that just the way it is,,,,,,
