Taurus SLIM Arrives In New Calibers

April 01, 2010  | 


The Taurus 740 SLIM .40 S&W offers a 6+1 round capacity.

Taurus has introduced its SLIM pistol in two new calibers. The 708 SLIM .380 ACP offers 7+1 rounds and the 740 SLIM .40 S&W offers 6+1 rounds.

With slides available in blue and stainless steel, these semi-autos are lean and lightweight, according to Taurus. The SLIM line features a short, single action/double action trigger pull and low-profile fixed sights for easy and comfortable concealment carry.

Additional features include finger indexing Taurus Memory Pad along the frame for an automatic finger locator, off-hand thumb rest for safe firearm handling and unique takedown levers offer fast field stripping.

The SLIM weighs 19 ounces, measures a mere 6.24 inches long and is less than an inch thick. Standard features for the SLIM include a visual loaded chamber indicator, new trigger safety, manual safety and the unique Taurus Security System that allows users to securely lock the gun using an inconspicuous key-lock.

Nice brief run down. But I'd like to see something of trigger pull, accuracy,FTF info and muzzle velocity given various loads.
