    I have a pt22 and 3 revolvers. I kind of put more stock in their revolvers. That's just my personal opinion.
    I did by one of the first in Texas pt1911's. It would only accept the 2 magazines that came with the weapon. No Kimber, Wilson Combat or any other I had around the house. A friend had one and his magazines would not fie in the pistol. So I was limited to 2 Mags or a trip back to Taurus. Plan C was trading it for a Springfield loaded from the dealer I got the Taurus from. Don't get me started on that.

    Angry stop bashing taurus

    I have a Taurus model 85 stainless revolver that I purchased after buying a Ruger SP101. It is not the same quality as the Ruger but I have shot over 700rounds through it without any problems. I keep it in my nightstand for home protection and have no regrets buying it. It seems that the same people keep bashing Taurus, so to them I say stop and get on with your life.

    Thumbs up Taurus

    My PT24/7 and PT140 have been perfect. And yes I will buy Taurus again they are good guns for the money. If you got a bad one send it back and they will make things right. Life time warrantee.

    I've owned several Taurus firerarms, currently have three. Three had troubles right out of the box new. I sent them back to Taurus and after their gunshop worked on them they worked fine and still are working after years of use. I have many other brands and have had to send back new Smith & Wessons and Rugers for fine tuning. Bad stuff slips out of any factory but usually can be fixed if the companies are given a chance.

    I have owned several Taurus firearms... none of which gave me any problems. I currently carry a Taurus 2" 44C 5 shot and it goes bang everytime.

    I have never had any problems with Taurus.

    Every manufacture will have some firearms that get sent out with problems. A friend of mine at work bought a KAHR PM40 and had nothing but problems with it. Sent it back three times then traded it for a revolver. He lost about $300 over that deal. His friend has one that has never given him a single problem. You get a good one or you don't.

    Before I bought my first Taurus(.44 revolver) I asked around the club and no one had a bad word to say. I had no problems with it or a .357 I bought later. The service problems seem no worse than other brands - Pete

    I have a PT 92. Still pretty new, but 100%. It does seem to shoot a little low, but this my first auto so it may be me or my ammo choice. If this persists I'll take it to a local smith and have him install a taller rear sight. No big deal.

    stop buying Taurus

    Maybe Taurus pistols are passable, but their revolvers need a way to go! Just got a 851SSUL snub. Looked it over in the store and it appeared ok. Got it home and started to clean it. Noticed threads sticking out the barrel from the patch I ran through. Upon looking through a mag glass noticed metal burrs sticking in the barrel. The UL I got has a steel barrel pressed in a lighter weight metal shroud. Small pieces of the shroud were impregnated in front of the barrel. Took it to a gunsmith and it will take a day for him to fix or 5 weeks turnaround back to Taurus. Was told if I had fired a round splinters would shoot out sideways. Wonder how the test fire went before Taurus sent this out. Very poor workmanship!

    My Taurus 851 - just the plain- jane blue model - has been awesome ( with 500 rounds thru so far ) The single and double action pull are great and it's way more accurate than I expected. I can shoot at 15 and 20 yards, double action, and get wonderful groups!!

    Untimely Fortune

    Guess you're not lucky for your brand new piece. I have a PT92-9mm Taurus, never had a problem with it....not even once or even coincidental. I've had it for 4 years and I used it to play IDPA here in Philippines. I really am empressed the way it serves me (PT92). I also have 1911 custom built Caspian but never will I entrust my life on a 1911 (for some reasons).....its jamb o' matic. It may not be the Company's intention to sell deffective pistols. However, sometimes bad luck slips out of the box.... Dont get me wrong here....Taurus is one hell of a pistol your life can depend on especialy the PT92. Happy Shooting Bros!!!

    Thumbs up pt-22 FTF....

    I feel that taurus has the BEST waranty in the industry.

    I also bought the wife a pt-22 and had lots of jamming problems, thought it needed broke in, then switching ammo etc. finally took it back to the gun store and had them send it to the factory. 6 weeks later i got it back and it runs perfect. of the 400rds or so since it was fixes it had one failure to fire, checked the round that failed and there was a nice dent in the rim...had to be a "DUD' round....

    Also had a pt-145 that i bought used, then noticed the gripframe had a crack in the backstrap...sent it out and it came back with a new one....

    I have a tracker in 22lr. and it has been flawless.....

    Bottom line is if it wont work or breaks, they will fix it no matter what and at no charge, but it will take 6-8 weeks to get your gun back.


    I just bought a 92 ar in SS and can't wait for my FFL dealer to call me and tell me to come pick it up

    It's been about 4 months since I posted on this thread. I've been impressed enough with the PT1911, that I will consider buying another Taurus in the future. Nice pistol. NO problems. Makes me look like I know what I'm doing when I shoot it.

    That's cool there are some brevardians here. I'm over in Rockledge and just bought a 24/7 PRO .40 from a friend of mine. It has shot great for me so far and always shot good for my friend too. I have no complaints.

    Love Taurus!

    The only problem I've had with any Taurus I've owned turned out to be one brand of ammo. Since avoiding that ammo, I've had zero problems and I love shooting my current 2 Taurus handguns: a PT145 and a 650 snubby. PowerTec, I'm sorry to hear that your experience has been different, but I cannot come to the same conclusion you have.

    I have a P22 that my dad bought in the 90s (i think its a 1994 model). We have never had any problems out of it (of course it probably only has 500-600 rounds through it) until recently--the magazine release flew out while shooting, and some of the parts were unable to be recovered from the tall grass. I was going to send it to Taurus, until I found out it was going to cost 50 bucks to send it, and thats only one way. I dont know if they would charge me to ship it back or not.

    For this reason, i just purchased a Walther P22 for my cheap plinking needs last week

    I own a Taurus revolver in 38 Spl and it has been accurate and reliable as one might expect from a wheel gun. I have shot a few hundred rounds of +P ammo in it (it is rated for it) and have noticed it is starting to loosen up so I'm not real impressed. It's definitely trade in material.
