    Taurus issues?

    Hello all

    RON L here

    I no longer own any Taurus Firearms, but in the past, I have owned a few of the 92 as well as the 99 Series of Semi-auto's as well as a Model 85 snub as well, I never had any issues with my Guns, but had a friend who had a 9MM smaller pistol I don't recall the Model 9 something, got the same type in 45ACP and it suffered from Light Primer strikes, after 3 attempts at different ammo and send back to taurus he sold it back to the shop that sold it to him 9AT A LOSS) and got another gun! I have known folks that had more issues with revolvers than semi-autos and seems like thr 66 Series was problematic for a long while? AS I have not folowed up on that of late not siure if thats still a problem area or not? I have a lot of issues with S & W as well as colt Weapons and I try and be fair, i don't see taurus as any worse than Colt of late?

    The sear on my 145 broke after firing 70 rounds through it. Taurus fixed it and it has been a good weapon since then. It doesn`t matter what brand a gun is, any gun can have issues.

    Light primer strikes on what sounds like a PT111 9mm striker fired gun come from not cleaning the firing pin channel when it was taken fresh out of the box. Taurus packs a lot of preservative gunk in their firearms, and it will slow the firing pin strike if not cleaned we first.

    I can't really see the point of this thread. It definitely has nothing to do with a Taurus complaint.
