The 800 series is derived from the successful "Taurus OSS" pistol designed for the U.S. Armed Forces, but adds an external hammer. The 800 Series is now ready with "Strike Two" capability. If you have had a hard primer and the gun misfires, the 800 Series senses this and automatically gives you instant "Strike Two" capability by resetting the trigger for automatic double action restrike.

Lot of great things about this gun. For those who like the "cool factor," this gun has great looks--would be a great "movie gun." If you prefer the SA/DA design over the striker design (as I do), and you're on a budget, this is worth considering. (Consider also the free 1-year NRA membership that comes with it.) Trigger is really smooth, even in DA, and accuracy is impressive. It's a bit heavier than its .40 cal counterparts from other manufacturers, but you may like that if you're concerned about the .40 cal kick. Bought mine a few years ago, and it functions very reliably with a variety of ammo, without any FTF's or FTE's. I did experience an issue where the slide would occasionally lock open with rounds still in the magazine; sent it back to Taurus and got it back in a few weeks fully repaired. Since it wasn't perfect, I can't give it 5 stars, but after the repair it's a great gun. Definitely recommended.
