Hi everyone, first post.

I was looking at a new 605 in the local gun shop the other day. After a few double action dry fire pulls the gun locks up. The counter guy takes the key, locks and then unlocks it. I try again, it locks up after a couple pulls. This kept happening and he said he was going to send it back.

I've heard of S&W ILS locking up, but never Taurus before.

So, my question is, what would it take to replace the hammer in a 605/651 with a non-ILS hammer? Are non-ILS hammers even available? Would this remove the ILS completely?

My guess is that the lock wasn't being completely dis-engaged. I highly doubt that the system can be removed. However, if you simply don't mess with it you shouldn't have any issues.

Well, the guy was trying to sell it to me, so he was motivated to do it correctly. I watched him turn it one way and then the other to unlock it. I don't know what else he could have done. In fact, he gave up and put it under the display cabinet out of sight to ship back to Taurus later.
