    24/7 G2c .45 Range Report: 1st & 2nd times out

    1st Time Out: Shot 100 rounds of WWB. Gun performed like crap. Multiple (meaning: countless) failures to feed, mags difficult to release, shot waaay low and waaay right. I had cleaned it to the best of my newby ability the day prior, but I think cleanliness, etc. were definitely contributing factors.

    Since then... I bought myself some Hoppe's #9, some more cleaning pads, a bore brush, some snap caps (and a stiffer wrist), cranked up the compressor, watched some you tube vids, and got to work. I took it down and cleaned/properly oiled it really well. I also disassembled/cleaned my mags as well. Everyday for about two weeks I worked with snap caps and loaded/unloaded the mags (I left them loaded while being stored).

    2nd Time Out: Altogether a different gun. Shot 100 rounds. 50/50 PMC & Remington UMC. NO FEED ISSUES WHATSOEVER (from either the 10-round or 12-round mags). I adjusted the sights and, afterward, the only problem I had all day was that (no matter how high I set the elevation) it still shot about 3" low, but on center this time. Not too sure about that, but I'm sure I'll figure it out over time and will post here when I do. Ideas?

    Anyway, thought I'd pass that on. Would've posted last time, but didn't think it would've been too fair. It's breaking in nicely. More to follow...

    Welcome aboard, and Greetings from Tx.

    Glad to hear things are looking up for you, and you made the effort to give a second chance. You learned the first most valuable lesson about Tauri, GOTTA BE CLEANED FIRST! They pack them full of goo for the 3 week boat ride from Brazil. I'm amazed reading customer reviews at Bud's or someplace, that have 47 5-star ratings then 3 1-star reviews. My money says the 1-stars didn't clean first. I'm a slightly aggravated G2C-45 owner, but still thinking happy thoughts. By any chance, have you noticed if your trigger resets to DA from SA during magazine changes?? Mine just returned from a second trip to Miami for repairs. I hope to get to the range this weekend to see if its right now. Too bad I can't help with info about the sights. I recently had eye surgery, so I'm just happy to hit paper! Please keep us posted. Good Luck with the rest of the break in, and enjoy.

    The second go around sounds like a much more enjoyable experience, and I predict the third time will be "charm"!

    I have the exact same gun. I am still having unresolved issues with the 10 round mag, but otherwise love the gun. I am glad that your 2nd range trip was a much better experience.

    Nice to hear it's running good, now try playing cover up with the front dot, only use the rears for left to right alignment. I've noticed that the front posts tend to be high on alot of Taurus pistols, even on the G2 I held today at the gun shop.
