    Make your Taurus more accurate?

    Ever hear of "bore lapping"? It's not just for rifles. I bought all the gear to do my revolvers and my auto. It IS tedious, but the results ar well worth it. You also get less lead fouling and the cleaning time is reduced.
    Try to take it and die

    MrArff, we are a fan site for Taurus and have no affiliation with them. If you have something to say to the company, you'll need to contact them, not here.

    Bore lapping, for those who don't know what this is, its polishing the inside of a revolver/pistol/rifle barrel to a mirror finish. Less friction for the bullet. I have done lapping, but not to a gun. It is tedious work.
    Ammo mfr told me to Aim Once, Shoot Twice... Now they are saying "just aim" and pretend to shoot.

    Since this was in the problem section, I misunderstood the OP. Carry on..........

    You may run into problems with some Taurus handguns if you lap the barrels. I know the milpros have some kind of plating in the bore, and that plating doesn't like to be lapped. It can cause it to chip off, and the barrel will subsequently have to be replaced. DAMHIK I don't know if that's the case with Taurus revolver barrels, but the semi auto barrels I wouldn't lap.

    I have fire lapped and hand polished rifles with rough bores like old military rifles. It does improve the accuracy and reduces copper fouling. My PT145 is super shiny so I wouldn't even try.

    "Make you Taurus more accurate" a little work on the nut behind the trigger never hurt either!!

    I have never heard of this procedure so I will not speak to its effectiveness (although I did sleep in a Holiday Inn Express last night), but what is the difference between this prodedure or using "additives" or products like Italian Gun Grease to the inside of the barrel? Seems like every gun show I attend has one or two booths devoted to a miracle agent. Any validity to any of these?

    "Lapping" is a procedure where you apply varying grade of grinding pastes to achieve a smoother finish. To get better results with a cylinder head in a car, you would "lap in" the valves/valves faces.
