    Yeah, they are like holding a one by two, but even with my size 11 hands, I can shoot them well.
    Are we there yet?

    I have a spectrum. I ordered the exact color combo I wanted. Glad I did before specific colors became hard to find. I liked Taurus’s website showing all the color combinations possible.

    I have all the same complaints about it as everyone else. Failure to feeds have been the main complaint. Very common. The other is that reassembly with the recoil spring is a Herculean task, but I’m getting better at it. When inserting a mag, it gets blocked by the mag release button, but I just press the mag release button and hold it while I inset the mag past that point. Sights are beyond minimal, but that doesn’t bother me. I think of this as a point and shoot point blank self defense gun.

    Overall it’s a nice little gun. I enjoy shooting it, though the FTF (feed) can be annoying. It’s soft shooting. And comfortable with either the extended mag or the flat bottom.

    I have never had a failure to fire. It fires every time for me with every brand of round I’ve tried. The Real issue is getting it to chamber.

    I would hate to see the Spectrum go away. It’s definitely worth improving and not cutting from the line up. Definitely fills a niche.

    Absolutely agree!

    Received confirmation from a Taurus representative that the Spectrum is still in production. So the immediate future looks positive for it.

    Isn't it the only small pocket sized poly pistol in 380 that Taurus makes?
    while the semi sub compact 9 MM is the rage right now the 380 in that package is still selling pretty well, so until something new comes along I imagine they keep it in manufacture.
    would not be surprised to see it come out in 22lR to be honest, but they could do themselves and the customer a lot of good by working out the bugs in the gun first.

    Consistency is my main concern. Some have issues, some don't and frankly, I'd feel better about them if they all had issues and the same issues. When something's hit & miss like that, it's hard to nail down where the problem truly lies and makes it harder to correct.

    don't disagree one bit!
    you know my feelings about consistency (quality Control ) and taurus.
    that's why I went in a different direction for my 380 and 9 MM pocket carry guns.

    That's great news; I was hopeful that the factory rep I spoke with in February was mistaken. Thank you for the update!

    Glad to see that the Spectrum will be still offered and made by Taurus.

    With the large surge in gun buying across the USA there is need for a .380 pistol more than ever. Taurus will sell a boatload or two of SPECTRUMS.

    BIG AL, take that question and start another thread. You'll get more and better answers if you do.
