I loaded some 9 shot Remington Premier STS Target loads and after firing the first two rounds my cylinder locked up and I could not pull the trigger or cock the hammer. After wrestling with the cylinder release I was able to open it and extract the shells. I tried Federal Premium 2 1/2 in buckshot their personal defense load with the same results. I will be contacting Taurus on Monday to arrange to have them look at my revolver. When it did fire it was controllable but I was not accurate with it. With the problems withit not firing never got a real opportunity to work on the accuracy of the gun and more importantly myself. Will update on this as this moves along. I hope Taurus can make this right, my wife has a Circuit Judge that performs flawlessly and this would be a good lil brother to it.

    Please keep us updated...

    I picked up my poly from my local FedEx office yesterday, this weekend I am off to the range to test it out. Here's hoping everything is functioning properly I really really want to like this gun. Will update after the range visit

    Good luck at the range welcoming your Poly PD home. Try not to go through too much ammo!

    Congrats on the new gun!
    My wish list...
    Number one is definitely the Akdal Mka 1919 12 gauge. With a slide-fire stock, nothing is cooler than a fully automatic 12 gauge slinging 00 buckshot!

    #2 is a Taurus 24/7 Pro .40 - Because it is AWESOME and it holds 16 rounds!

    #3 is The new Arsenal Arms Double Barrel 1911. Because it brings a new meaning to the phrase DOUBLE TAP!

    Well took my newly repaired poly to the range today. It shot 45 long colt flawlessly but still hangs up on federal and Winchester defensive 410 ammo. It shot Winchester bird shot ammo ok but would hang up on the 410 defensive ammo. I shot the PDX Winchester 410 ok for about 10 rounds but even those would lock up the cylinder. They said they adjusted the headspace and the space between the cylinder and the barrel but it doesn't seem to have helped much. I will give it a good cleaning and one more range session then it will be back to Taurus for the second time. I hope at the end of all this I don't regret not spending the extra money and getting the S&W Governor.

    Well as stated I gave my poly a good cleaning and took it back to the range yesterday. As before it shot the 45LC flawlessly. It did well with Winchester 410's, both birdshot and the PDX1 defensive rounds.it did still hang up on the Federal shells. That I can live with as long as I am aware of what ammo works reliably. My wife has a Circuit Judge which shoots any and everything we have fed it so she use the federal shells I had purchased.
