    Tracker 45acp

    What happened to the Tracker .45 ACP? Why was it discontinued???? Was it a lemmon? Most reviews are from 2002-2004. Alot of praise early on then complaints about action issues. I bought one NIB yesterday. I called Taurus and was told "Lifetime Warranty" stands so I took the plunge.

    Great gun. Don't worry about it. I think Cooper has one and he might chime in. I have one unfired. Haven't got to it yet.

    I think part of the problem was the price Taurus wanted for the moon clips.
    I think ranch is making them now so maybe the price is better. www.ranchproducts.com.
    www.ezmoonclip.com has the plastic clips but they're $4 bucks apiece. About the same as Taurus.
    But I think it's a great gun I like my 44 enjoy your 45.

    Re: Tracker 45acp

    Congrats on your rare NIB Taurus M455 Tracker revolver. My M455 .45 ACP Tracker has been a great gun! I've shot hundreds of rounds though it with zero problems. I've used Remington UMC 230 grain metal case and WWB 230 grain full metal jacket ammo. Both varieties of ammo have functioned flawlessly with the gun and with the moon clips. The gun should come with a pack of 5 Stellar full moon clips.

    I have read the .45 Auto Rim fits in some M455's but not in others. I haven't tried it in my Tracker but if I ever come across it at the gun shop I probably will. I've just been using mine for plinking and it's been FUN to shoot, no complaints.

    I've seen owners with 2, 4 and/or 6.5 inch versions on this forum. Just use the "Search" function to read more about the .45 ACP Tracker.

    LEMON ?!? I'm hurt. Really.

    They're discontinued, but can be found. I bought mine used in a gun shop, only to run across another one in a pawn shop the next week. Go figure.

    Re: Tracker 45acp

    These things are habit forming....it shoots great...I am grouping 4" at 20yds but I know it is capable of better...mine likes the Hornady 185gr JHP better than the 230 FMJ WWB.

    Now the wife wants the two inch model but the one currently on Gunbroker seems to be priced alittle high starting at $575. What tha.....??? That is almost $200 more than what I paid.

    Those look to be ideal for some 'up close and personal' work.

    Re: Tracker 45acp

    Mine would work with some auto rim cartridges and not others. Headspace is at the minimum and AR brass standards were made with fairly wide tolerances due to war time issues.

    I sorted thru the brass then did some rim thickness thinning on those that wouldn't work. Now they work like a charm.
