You might want to included what model Taurus you have.
I took out the Release button and no problems. Now that I'm trying to put it back in, it almost gets there then stops like something is holding it. and it won't go the last 1/8 or 1/16". I don't want to force it. Any suggestions. The spring is in the far right position, there is nothing different from when I took it out 2 hours ago.
I made one from a needle, it was a straight spring anyway that sit behind the clip release button. Does anybody think that won't work?
Since the spring has been out of the pistol for more than 2 hours, it is obviously ruined, and you will have to replace the firearm!
Like VA said, it would help a lot if you told us the model number of the firearm you are working on.
Psst. Magazine, not clip.
