    Can anybody help me figure out this problem?

    This is my first time on the Taurus Forum Armed and I need some guidance. I saw this video on the Taurus Twitter account and realized that I have a similar issue with my slide. Mine was gifted to me and I don't carry so it's not too big of an issue, but I haven't brought it out to the range with the girls because I thought it was broken. I am a Taurus fanatic so this has been the odd one out for me. If there is a self-fix, I'd be happy to do it.

    My 738TCP does not do that at all. Something is clearly wrong with the gun. Send it off to Miami and get her fixed up.

    That's nothing some duct tape won't fix.

    If it's worth putting a hole in then it's worth putting a BIG hole in.

    Oh my.................
    Call Taurus, box it up and send it in.
    Don't shoot it...........just get it to Taurus.

    That gun needs to be sent back to Taurus for repair or replacement. Do not shoot it as it is. Call customer service and send ti back to them for repair.

    Kinda like mine; If it don't move, paint it. If it moves, hit it with a hammer, then paint it.

    Maybe the rare limited edition Alligator model.

    It appears that the front guides have come lose from the frame. Not sure how things are secured on that model but on the PT709, they're held in by a pin directly above the trigger and another pin through the very front of the trigger guard where it joins the main body.
