Taurus PT 809E Black & Silver
This company was founded in 1939 to make Smith & Wesson-type revolvers and is now part of a group that makes products ranging from hand tools to sports equipment. In 1980, after Italian arms manufacturer Beretta had completed its contracts to produce firearms for Brazil's military, Taurus purchased Beretta's Sao Paulo manufacturing plant along with the tooling, technical drawings, and work force necessary to produce several different pistol designs. By the early 1990s the company was employing more than 3000 people in four factories in Brazil. In order to more effectively tap the U.S. market, the company created a subsidiary in 1984 stationed in Miami, Taurus International Manufacturing Incorporated, also known as Taurus USA.
The PT-809 is similar in design to the PT-24/7 OSS, but adds an external hammer. The trigger is double-action (DA/SA) with second-strike capability. Features include Novak sights, 17 shot magazine, front and rear slide serrations and lower Picatinny rail.
