Summary: The description, specs, pricing, photos and user ratings of the Taurus 917 pistols.
In 1980, Taurus purchased the Beretta factory in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and soon began producing pistols based on the Beretta 92 design. The Taurus 917 is chambered in 9mm and features a drop hammer and a forged ordnance-grade alloy frame designed to prevent cracking or allowing the slide to come off.
Other features include:
- A three-position, frame-mounted ambidextrous safety, which is more secure than a slide mounted safety and allows for a classic single-action cocked-and-locked mode, as well as functioning as a DA decocking lever.
- fixed sights (a fiber-optic front sight is optional);
- an accessory rail;
- checkered rubber grips;
- a loaded chamber indicator; and
- two blue steel high-capacity magazines.
Available finishes include matte blue, stainless steel and duotone. The 917 comes with one extended high-capacity magazine as well.
MSRP: $571 (blue)
MSRP: $589 (stainless)
