  1. Member Introduction - Forum Rules
    Hello all, I am new to this group. Nice to "meet" you all! I am looking for a firing pin that fits the older model Taurus PT 101 .40. I've already contacted Taurus Co. and looked a bit on the internet for aftermarket, but no luck. I wonder if anyone on this site might have one for sale, or...

    I have a PT-145 (SN NXC01XXX) purchased used which I sent back to the factory to resolve the magazine drop and light strike issue. They replaced the firing pin spring and did something which seems to have resolved the magazine drop problem. After that I put several hundred rounds through it...
  3. Taurus Product Problems
    My first handgun purchase was this PT-22 with 500 blazer rounds and a holster for $200. It's a nice gun and all but I've been having frequent fail to fires. It's never failed to feed or stove piped. The fail to fire problem sometimes requires me to strike the round 2-4 times before it fires...

    Hey Folks! New to Firearms and just purchased my first handgun (24/7 G2 9mm - Full Size). I have read alot about cleaning before going to the range and removing all the factory grease, but what about the firing pin area? Does that need to be completely removed and cleaned or will just...
  8. Taurus Product Problems
    Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, my PT1911AR has provided me with another opportunity to to learn what I'm doing wrong. My firing pin is not impacting with the primer. From what I can gather online this type of issue can be caused by damage to the pin itself. I have examined the pin...

    The firing pin on my 450ti failed. The circumstances are described on another thread. I can't complain about Taurus repair service. The revolver departed my house via FedExpress on Monday morning. The repair department emailed me on Wednesday evening that repairs were complete and gave me a...
