FIREARM HISTORY AND FEATURES:
The Taurus PT 51 is a Brazilian made clone of the Beretta 950 B Jetfire, manufactured by Forjas Taurus.
The Beretta 950 Jetfire is a simple, direct blowback pistol, chambered in 6.35mm (.25 ACP) and .22 Short, with a single-action trigger mechanism and tip-up barrel, manufactured in Italy and Brazil from 1952 till 2003.
The frame is made out of aluminum alloy and the slide and barrel are carbon steel.
Early models (pre-1968) do not have a manual safety lever, employing an inertial firing pin for safe hammer-down carry instead.
The Beretta 950 Jetfire chambered in .25 ACP is a backup, self-defense pistol that is intended for undercover agents, police officers or individuals as a concealed firearm for self-defense.
The tip-up barrel makes it easy to make safe and at the same time, easy to make ready to fire, especially for people who find it difficult to rack the slide of a small sized pistol.
The pistol does not have an extractor and relies on blowback pressure to eject the spent cases.
If a case does not extract it can be manually removed by tipping up the barrel and pulling it out.
This gun is in good used condition. It is mechanically sound and functional.
The overall finish is good with some very light wear on the front, left edge of the slide, as well as the top of the rear of the slide.
The original wooden grip panels are in good condition, with only some extremely light scratches.
Extra magazines for this firearm available from Special Armory
This firearm is perfect for every-day, concealed or pocket carry, although the 6.35mm (.25 ACP) cartridge is quite small and low powered compared to other, modern calibers.
All calibers are effective with the correct shot placement however, it just means that your shooting skills must be that much sharper.
This ammunition will also not be as prevalent and available to purchase as other calibers, especially if you are looking for modern self-defense rounds.
It may also be a good firearm to consider as a second, backup concealed weapon.
