But when I got online to research a little more about it I see that Taurus lists it as DA/SA but has some confusing language about the trigger setting in SA mode when a round is chambered. So that means it's a DA pistol when the chamber is empty? I'm not sure that makes any sense.
Anyway I want something that has the same trigger pull for every round, but I'm not interested in a 1911-style SA at this point. How does the PT709 trigger actually work?
The one we had in our rental counter ran about 15k rounds before it puked the guts. Shipped it back, got a new replacement and it's still ticking along.
