    Taurus Millennium Pro 9mm

    i was wondering about ammo. ive shot about 8 boxes threw it and today it keep not wanting to fire. i was using Blazers which i have always used in the past, u could see were the firing pin had been striking the primer but it wouldnt fire and that was the case on about 4 different bullets. i thought it was the ammo that was bad. but my buddy put those 4 in his S&W M&P and it shot them with no problem. i was wondering if maybe the taurus just had a weaker firing pin in them and the ammo wasnt as good as the others in the box or what. any help would do or advice on what type of ammo to use would help thanks

    Have you tried other ammo? I understand that some brands have harder primers than others. Is the fireing pin channel clear? Gunk can get in there and foul the works.
    My best advice would be to ask the Taurus shooters over at TaurusArmed.net. I don't own a Mil Pro, but more than likely someone who does can point you in the right direction.

    Clean the firing pin (striker channel). Dirt and crud builds up easily. Then leave it dry so the oil does not create more junk.

    Is 2nd strike capability making for a weak strike?

    Hmm.. I would use Federal or American rounds as I have never had problems with them. I also use WWB with no problem.

    Dirt and crud is formed by all, some more than other but striker fired pistols need to have the striker/firing pin channel kept clean and dry. Hammer fired guns do not have as much of a problem but still need to be cleaned. You wouldn't run your car with dirty old oil I hope, so clean your gun.
