    there's a lot of ways to mess up if you're new to guns. too much lube, too little lube, lube in the wrong places...

    the 740 doesn't need much. On the slide rails, the barrel where it makes contact with the slide..
    It needs to stay out of the striker channel and magazine.

    As said before, factory new, these things can be downright packed with grease. Look up how to take the striker assembly apart, you don't need to break it down past that, just hose the whole thing out and gently re-lube.

    I don't like the lighter weight higher velocity rounds from small pistols. The heavier rounds seem to do better at getting full penetration fired from shorter barrels and they also typically have less report.


    Oh, my 740 has also been flawless. It's not an aberration to have one that is functionally perfect.
    I believe in gun control! Starting with a firm 2 handed grip....

    I got my PT740 at a gun show on 8/3/13 it had a defective slide and would not disassemble. When I called Taurus they sent me a shipping label. After they received my pistol they sent me an email that it would take 6 weeks to repair, what actually happened was they replaced the slide, test fired it and had it heading back to me in 6 hours not 6 weeks. Great service!!!

    I shot another 24 rounds through mine yesterday. It's not a very pleasant experience to shoot, but it's great to carry!
