Introduced in 2008, the Taurus PT809 handgun was initially conceived as a modular style platform designed to allow caliber changes by switching the magazine and slide/barrel assembly. Taurus offered the 800 series of handguns in four versions:
The PT 809 was built on a polymer frame with an integrated light metal chassis system. This handgun is a SA/DA (single action/double action) platform featuring an external hammer, safety, and decocking lever.
Like several Taurus pistols, the 809 also offers Taurus’s “Double Strike” capability, which allows the hammer to automatically reset with a misfire so that the shooter can pull the trigger a second time for a follow-up strike on the misfired round.
Taurus opted to discontinue the PT-809 series in 2017 when they introduced the TH series of pistols.
From a size standpoint, the PT809 is considered a “full size” handgun, and it’s about the same size as a Glock 17.
