    Just so all knows............

    Once the Spectrum is shot you will notice that the slide and frame will be even
    on the back of the firearm............
    As I guessed the recoil spring has to set, very stiff in the beginning so it pulls the slide forward, after
    putting rounds threw it my Wife's lines up just fine...................
    There are "four boxes" that can be employed to resist the downfall of America, the ballot box, the soap box, the jury box and, lastly, the ammo box.

    Thumbs down

    ^Nope. Put 300 rounds of Geco FMJ through a "lightly used" Spectrum I purchased off of Gunbroker. The slide still sits forward on the frame.

    Have you gone through the pistol and thoroughly cleaned it, and are you running it wet................

    Yes, detail stripped the slide down to the firing pin, removable firing pin tunnel and all bits (springs) and pieces. Cleaned everything and put it back together. I also have the light primer strike issue (10 -15 rounds out of 300).

    Agreed. Several hundred rounds through and several thorough cleanings later, my Spectrum is still misaligned.

    Well, just so you are aware, I am a paid shill for Taurus, and am currently trying to photoshop a Spectrum
    so I can make it look right.......................
    When I get done with the Winter Storm that is about to hit Rapid City, I will post pics of the pistol.......................
