    Re: Great Customer Service

    I had a similar positive experience with customer service. I returned a model 605 because tere was an apparent timing problem. Portions of bullet jacket would strike the right edge of the forcing,...

    I don't have a Taurus but I do have a Smith and Wesson 66, as well as 629 which Jack customized in a fashion similar to what was offered by Taurus. At one time, Weigand Custom was ctually the "Taurus...

    Re: 845 Sent Back To Taurus For Repair

    I experienced a similar problem with my PT845. It seemed as though, when in single action mode, there was insufficient rearward trigger travel to release the hammer. If I released the trigger after...

    Re: 905 cylinder binding against barrel

    I recently purchased a stainless model 605. Using Federal .38 +P 125 grain jacketed hollow points, during the first range session I noticed the cylinder binding once every cylinder or so. The...

    Re: 605 Cylinder mis-alignment

    Unfortunately, I bought the gun through Buds and ordered it sight unseen (Buds service is excellent-not a criticism of them at all). But, because the gun functioned normally with snap caps, and...

    Re: new model 66 binding

    I had the same experience with a recently purchased model 605. The ammunition was Federal .38 125 grain JHP/+P and the ammo appeared to have been manufactured properly. After 25-30 rounds the...

    Ed Brown Hardcore sear

    Recently, I elected to replace the hammer and sear on a PT1911 ALR with Ed Brown hardcore parts. Using an Ed Brown "sear jig" with the set screw at the factory set angle, I inserted the sear and...

    Re: 800 Series "Strike Two Capability"?

    To confirm my pistol was operating as intended, I called Taurus CS. In fact, after describing the way in which the hammer was falling to double action (only after cocking, dropping the hammer in...

    Re: 800 Series "Strike Two Capability"?

    While I'm not certain the 800 series "senses" anything, the fire control mechanism does appear to be somewhat unique. I've noticed that when dry firing, if I drop the hammer on an empty chamber, then...

    Re: PT845 Trigger reset

    Well, after some observation, it appears the pistol is working as it's designed. Using snap caps, I discovered the pistol will revert to the DA mode if the slide is eased closed on an EMPTY chamber....

    Re: PT845 Trigger reset

    I think I understand what you're saying but I would assume there's a disconnector of some sort to prevent that, as there would be in a 1911. Normally, upon pulling the trigger to fire, some shooters...

    Re: PT845 Trigger reset

    Thanks for the input. I noticed the hammer will fall if I dry fire the pistol from single action, then, while holding the trigger to the rear, manually retract the slide and allow it to return to...

    PT845 Trigger reset

    After receiving my PT845 back from taurus after a trigger bar adjustment, I spent some time at the range. Ergonomics are great and the pistol now functions flawlessly. I did notice an interesting...

    I received my PT845 back from Taurus today. Turn around was very quick and every time I contacted customer service, I was treated courteously. I have dry fired the pistol (using a snap cap) in...

    Re: broken pt845 already

    That's strange :rolleyes: . That causes me yet more concern. If, in fact, they truly did not find a problem it suggests the trigger bar, or some other part, may be very sensitive to positioning....

    On August 10, I shipped my new-in-box PT845 to Taurus for service. This is one which should have never left the factory. As detailed elsewhere, the trigger would not release the sear, or required...

    Re: 800 series problems? 809, 840, 845

    As I mentioned in another post, I purchased a PT845 on 08/07. The single action trigger seemed stiff, but I assumed it would "break-in". I cleaned the pistol in preparation for a range session and...

    I considered those things as well. The mag was removed and inserted and seemed to make no difference. Initially, the key lock seemed to rotate more than the half rotation or so I would have expected...

    Wilson ETM (Enhanced Tactical Magazines) have worked flawlessly for me in Kimber, Springfield Armory, Colt and Smith and Wesson 1911's. Even in 9mm 1911's, which can be finicky, the ETM's have been...
