Loaded Chamber Indicator
Taurus provides a loaded chamber indicator on all new compact, medium and large frame pistols. As with all Taurus safety and security innovations, the indicator in no way interferes with the operation of your pistol and is provided at no extra cost, but gives you an “at-a-glance” verification that there is a round in the chamber. When a round is in the chamber, the ejector pops out of the slide, exposing a red strip just behind the ejection port. While any loaded chamber indicator is no substitute for common sense and safe firearm handling, it is one more example of Taurus’ commitment to outstanding firearms.




Taurus Security System (TSS)s
Taurus family of semi-auto pistols now feature the Taurus Security System, which provides instant-ready defense with built-in ability to secure your pistol and make it inoperable at the turn of a key. When the Security System is engaged, the pistol cannot be fired or cocked and the gun’s manual safety cannot be disengaged. As with our revolver Security System, the device is part of the firearm and cannot be lost, and the same special Security Key works for both the revolver and pistol Systems (two keys come with each gun). To engage: simply insert the Key into the button on the rear or side of the pistol and rotate one-quarter turn clockwise. This engages the Security System. The manual safety cannot be moved and the trigger cannot be pulled. To disengage: simply rotate the key one-quarter turn back. This releases the Security System, yet leaves the pistol’s manual safety in the “safe” position until you are ready to release it yourself and fire the gun.

  1. Great overview of the Taurus PT-140. I looked at one over the weekend and your videos on features and field stripping have convinced me this weapon is a top contender for a subsequent purchase. You might have a gig doing this type of overview and field stripping for multiple weapons’ manufacturers. I know I would be interested in seeing videos on features, advantages and benefits, as well as field stripping for other firearms. Good job.

  2. I’m considering purchasing one of these firearms. Itll be my first handgun. I’m not new to the world of firearms, but like you I was very intrigued by the safety features. Although everyone I spoken with has completely dismissed the Taurus brand as being a good gun. I take these opinions with a grain of salt as no one could really give me a solid reason why they thought that. Having owned the gun for the past several months can you still say that it’s a good fire arm? Any issues with rounds feeding or ejecting, or other malfunctions? Any feedback from an owner would much be appreciated

  3. I have been a reader for a long while, but am a first time commenter. I just wanted to let you know that this has been / is my favorite update of yours! Keep up the great work and I’ll keep on coming back. If you’d be interested in swapping blogroll links with me, my website is MonaVie Scam.

  4. I know this is an older post but wanted to comment.

    I have the same gun and like it too. I don’t know how you got a 3 dot sight for yours but I have been searching for one for over a year with no luck. I have found two downside to this gun or at least the version I have.

    1. Is it is hard to find any parts for it. The sight at least is almost impossible to find. Mine came with a two dot site that I really do not like. I have looked for a 3 dot and a laser grip not being able to find either. My understanding is depending on when you purchased it will depend on features some and it makes it hard to find what you need. Mine is only about a year old.

    2. Is I just found a safety flaw (online). If there is any pressure on the trigger when you set the safety the safety pin misses allowing a round to be fired with it on. Since the safety will not allow the slide to go back I don’t know what would happen when the gun goes off. If you watch what you are doing and keep your finger off the trigger like you should this should not be an issue.

    Other than that I love this gun. It makes a good carry gun that I use. Thanks for the video.

  5. I had some trouble with viewing your page properly with the most recent release of Opera. Looks good in Explorer 7 and Firefox however.Hope you have a great day.

  6. I Bought mine this weekend and put about a hundred rounds through. the gun jammed about 4 shots out of ten on the first clipped then continued to jam, but it was happening less the more i shot it. I dont know if this is a break in or actual issue with the weapon. Gonna give it another go this weekend and see if i have better results.

  7. would it be possible to translate your website into spanish because i have difficulties of speaking to english, and as there are not many pictures on your website i would like to read more of what you are writting

  8. Great articles. There’s a lot of nice information here, though I did want to let you know something, I’m running Redhat with the up-to-date beta of Firefox, and the design of your site is kind of wonky for me. I can read the articles, but the navigation doesn’t function so well.

  9. I am usually to blogging and i actually appreciate your content. The article has really peaks my interest. I’m going to bookmark your web site and hold checking for brand new information.

  10. Oh my goodness! an amazing article dude. Thank you Nevertheless I am experiencing concern with ur rss . Don’t know why Unable to subscribe to it. Is there anybody getting identical rss drawback? Anyone who is aware of kindly respond. Thnkx

  11. I have just purchased the Taurus .40 milliennium Pro and the first time I fired it I had one jam…People at the range came out and helped me and advised me that I should only run 5 rounds through the first few times then slowly increase until I ran full magazine through it thus giving the magazine a break in period I did this and Yesterday I fired 150 rounds NO JAMS and have only had that ONE for total jams. no FTE’S or FTF’S Really like the gun it shoots accurate and not to much recoil and is easy to carry concealed. I give it 5 stars out of 5.
