    709 Run Away

    Call Taurus and send it back.

    AS mentioned, there have been a few recent posts on here about the 709 going full auto. As mentioned, I would clean the firing pin channel first and take it back to the range to test it out. If you do this, load 2 rounds in the magazine and try it out. If they both fire independently, then load up three and try that. Continue the pattern adding rounds to each magazine. Hope that does the job and fixes the problem. If not, then a call to customer service is in order. If you do not know how to take the firing pin out to clean the channel, do a search on YouTube. That is where I found one that helped me do it the first time. It is difficult getting the slide cap off the first time.

    You can also try cleaning the area around the sear and blow it our with compressed air. But you'll probably need to send it back to Taurus. They will be eager for you to do so.

    Yep, sending it back to Taurus is the thing to do. You'll get a fixed 709 and Taurus will get feedback that will help improve the pistols we love.

    Seems that sumpen went KA-PUT in the sear department for a while in Brazil!!!!
    I am not that familair with the MIM process other than basic injection into a mold, wonder if they heat treat the sears afterward and they missed some?
    anyway, if that was MY PUPPY it would head back to the pound ASAP.

    Yeah, after you clean the firing channel, check to make sure no broken sear.
