Does anyone have the PT25? And thoughts on the gun. I have the PT22 wondering if the platform is similar and has good reliability.
This is one of the negative aspects of the design, manipulating the slide. I still preach manipulating the slide to clear malfunctions especially if you intend to carry this handgun for defense. It is a very nasty habit to automatically flip the barrel for everything on this pistol. Flipping the barrel with a Type III malfunction - a double feed stoppage, will usually result in the slide departing the frame. Not good!Lots of people feel the big advantage of the 25ACP over 22LR is reliability; centerfire replaced rimfire for a reason.
This will happen if you do not replace the plastic insert in the frame on a routine basis.I had nothing but issues with my pt25. the frame would beat itself so badly that you couldnt open or close the barrel. taurus eventually replaced it and I sold it quickly. this was with factory ammo.
