    Broke my gun in Portland, Or

    Hi all! Thanks for having me. 48, bought my Taurus a couple years ago as a gift to myself. I love it. I’m actually in Vancouver WA but work in Portland and Portland being the reason I need help with my gun 😕 I came home from the range, sat down to clean her and put her back together. I did something wrong and now it’s broke. I think I put something in upside down as I wasn’t paying attention. Help?

    Looks like the recoil spring and guide rod have slipped through hole in slide.
    First- get slide off and recoil spring seperated.
    Second-hold slide upside down with barrel in place so chamber is closed.
    Third- put recoil spring in place ..rounded end in hole in slide, flat end on step of lug on barrel
    Fourth- position slide at front of frame and slide back over lugs on frame.
    Let us know how it goes, if you have trouble I will see if I can provide step by step photos.
    Good luck, be safe!

    Welcome aboard.

    The Captain's advice is solid.

    Welcome from West Texas!

    It also appears that you have your barrel in upside down.

    I like that Bounty cleaning mat. I use the blue Scott shop towels myself. Good luck, and let us know how it goes.
