    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.

    This thread is a bit well idiotic

    The problem I see here is a bias one because on Taurus guns you read "Made in Brazil" instead of "Made in the USA". I'm fine with that, but at least just say it the way it is.

    I bought a 608 with the 8 3/8" as my first Taurus. I'm a competitive shooter and this was the only gun that fit my needs; no other manufacturer makes a .357 double action with a 8" barrel other than custom shop guns which I cannot use in competition (only stock).

    The gun is well built and at first looks you will mistaken it for a .44 or larger. I did a trigger job myself and the amount of polishing and filing needed was much less than my Super Redhawk (MADE IN USA). Virtually all I had to do was some minor polishing and replace the main and trigger return spring. Now the trigger in single pulls at 3.X LBS..(figure out why the X)! Don't get me wrong I love my Ruger as I loved my S&W, but this 608 is one damn fine gun, made in Brazil or not.

    Overall I'm impressed with this gun. Oh, what about a 3" rose, with no scope at 50'?

    I guess I have been pretty lucky with my "junk" Taurus products. I have two PT-145's that have several thousand rounds through each. I had a PT-24/7 in 9mm that I put about 1500 rounds through before I sold it to my brother in law after he offered me more than I paid for it, and I had a model 415 revolver in .41mag that was a realy fun shooter. I am extremely happy with my newest Taurus, or I should say my son is extremely happy. For Christmas last year, he wanted his first handgun, a 1911 to be exact, and I wanted one with all the bells & whistles. The PT-1911 filled that want/need perfectly. Between he & I we have put over 3000 rounds of both factory and handloaded ammo through the gun with only one problem. I had to adjust the grip safety release point slightly. Other than that it has been flawless. He loves the gun....I loved the price for what he got.

    Hate to be a bad guy here (especially since I'm a NOOB here)

    But, I just had to get rid of my brand new PT-140 mil-pro, much to my dismay.

    Reason: It dropped the mags 15x in 150 rnds.(3 different ones). At first I thought it was me, but, it happened when I switched my grip, & when wife shot it. I had it 1 month and it only happened twice at first.

    I could not duplicate problem any other way except firing.

    Really sucks too, cause I like everything about that gun. From the grip to the sights. I was really hoping to get a PT-111 mil-pro for the wife. Some have said it was because it was a .40, but, I will never know.

    The reason I di not send it in is because I HAD to pay shipping on a 1mos old gun. Taurus refused to. And to here about their turnaround time, it's not even worth it.

    Sad thing is I still want the mil-pro. I may have acted impulsivley, but, I'd never trust that gun again.

    Thumbs up

    This is a follow-up report to my ealier post in this thread.
    I have finally finished the break-in of my PT 92. With over 600 rounds through it I can report having only one F.T.F. (crappy range ammo), and that the P.O.A. / P.O.I. has corrected itself.
    Would I buy another of this series? In a heartbeat. I'm still looking for a PT 908ss for carry.

    Talking

    My experiences mirror those of most others when it comes to Taurus firearms. I've owned several over the years with absolutely zero
    problems with any of them. For the ones that don't want anymore, that's fine and well - it leaves more for those of us who do.

    I bought the wife a PT22 about 10 years ago and it worked just fine thru 2000 rds. Finally sold it to finance another gun.
