I have 180 rounds through mine with the following problems.
FTE every other round or every 3rd or 4th round.
Both mags will lock slide back with one round left. I tweeked the mags, but have not tried them yet.
Disconnector does not reset after racking the slide, you have to touch the trigger to get the disconnector to come back up.
I am sending it back to Taurus next week, if they can get me a Fedex label.
My first Taurus but I am willing to give them a chance art fixing it.
You are right, ammo is running into money to test this gun.
First gun I have ever had issues with.
I do believe it can be fixed. I like its features and trigger, but I have to comfortable carrying it. Right now I am not.
