    Taurus 82 problem

    New to forum, sorry if posted wrong place..I'll repeat it here,

    "New to the forum, first post..returning to firearms after about 15 year hiatus. Taurus 82, bought new, initial 200 or so rounds, no issue..nice shooting gun. Accurate, comfy in my hand BUT last 50 or so. Load gun(white box Winchester)..2-3 rounds no problem(both SA and DA), then gun 'jams'. Cannot cock or pull trigger..Open cylinder normally, out-in a few times and then OK..Took home and cleaned but haven't tried to shoot it again yet. I DID notice cylinder release button kinda 'wiggly'(screw tight tho)...Common? Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance.

    I'd recommend to stop using white box Winchester not a particularly reliable line of ammo from Winchester, as for the cylinder release wiggle every Taurus I've owned Is like that, don't worry about It.

    P.S.
    Check the ejector rod to make sure It Isn't loosening up

    First off: Welcome aboard, from Las Vegas!
    Next: I've never had a problem with Winchester White Box, but I've read here that some don't like it.
    I use them in my PT-111 G2. Really surprised that you had a problem with them in a revolver.

    You should give the gun a good cleaning, prior to taking it back to the range. You need to clean under the cylinder where it spins on the crane, flush it out and clean it all out really well. When you're done, the cylinder should spin freely. You might also want to pop the side plate off and flush that out as well, there is a post stickied under Taurus Revolvers that shows how to do it.

    Check the screw holding the cylinder crane in to the frame...............
    It is the screw on the right side at the front of the trigger guard, if it is not tight the cylinder will
    start dragging on burnt carbon between the barrel and cylinder...................

    I think it has been pretty well covered above. Clean under the cylinder ejector star, make sure your cylinder bores are clean. Then while you are testing, before shooting each cylinder load of 5 rounds, make sure the rounds are all seated into the cylinder bore. Winchester white box ammo is usually ok, but it is not what I run. I have had a few problems with that ammo, one time got a squib. Never bought WWB again. But that is just my preference. Good luck. If fails again - try and take a few pics of the of the cylinder star and the cylinder hand area. The cylinder hand is the small arm that grabs the star teeth and moves the cylinder when pulling the trigger. If you live close to NW arkansas I can work on it for you.

    Darn, forgot to add, when you run your screws back in put a dab of
    blue loctight on them, let it dry a couple of minutes and screw them back in.............
    This way they don't back out while shooting..............

    Interestingly, when I took the right hand side plate off, the lower/left screw was really loose...BUT yup, a little blue loctite on screws..with none on the one that holds the cylinder cradle in.
