I bought a NIB PT745 back in Feb. and haven't had a chance to feed it till today. That thing will shoot no FTF's or FTF's, no ejection problems (well except when I tried to find my brass), no magazine problems at all. It did shoot low and left but I can account for that. 1st I didn't bring my allen wrench to adjust the sight (was only checking for function), 2nd the low was my problem I've got to find the sweet spot on my finger. Groupings of all my shots were within 6 inches so it's fine. I did have a couple of curiosities though 1. there was a strange mark on the primers of the brass I did find it was a mark like that found on spent .22's had a indent for the striker then that darn mark. I cleaned the striker channel and broke it down but could find nothing wrong, as long as it goes boom I'm not going to worry. 2. I would like to hear from you limp wrist experts, I got a strange rebound after some shots it felt like the recoil spring was bouncing the slide, it seemed to me that when it happened my grip was a bit loose and did not feel it when using a firmer grip; So Was I Limp Wristing?? I do know this the 745 is easier on my old hands than my 709 or 738. I shot them too and I'm still looking for the sweet trigger finger spot for the 709, however, it does shoot well I'm just a bit low now. The 738, well don't get in front of me I'll can put 6 in a 3 inch circle.

weird primer mark is normal due to free float barrel; I believe the firing pins drags a little on the primer when the cartridge is forced back after ignition and the barrel tips slightly dragging on the primer/firing pin
and I also get a little bit of hang on my rebound sometimes as well so you may be limp wristing it

Thanks for the reply, I get normal strike marks on the 738 and 709 but that mark on the 45 was, to me, a bit strange. As for the rebound feel I pretty much suspected it to be either a loose grip or limp wristing.

Yea but they are easy. And they go off with a simple squeez. :)
As someone more famous than me once said "That's A Fact Jack". And furthermore, that simple squeeze is so completely satisfying.
