Sorry to hear that.
I like the 605. The last gun issue I had was with a rifle. My experience lead me to buying more from that company. I work in quality in a manufacturing plant. I know that companies know and monitor their fail rates. Unfortunately, not all are as concerned about how many of those reach the consumer. Then there is how they deal with the issue once it reaches the consumer. It a company values its own brand and its customers, it will strive to reduce fail units and take care of customers with issues.I felt like that too when I had issues with my 605.............. would probably reach for a GP-100, but I gurantee there's somebody out there who has had problems with them too.
And if you think Taurus is the only company that's made a pistol that drop fires, look no further than Sig Sauer. Hell, one of the biggest names in the game with pistols that cost x4 to x5 as much that drop fire.
As with all mechanical devices YMMV.
That's interesting. Based on experiments with my own Gen 1 PT 24/7, I thought the defect that got Taurus sued was that the safety can be engaged with the trigger pulled half way back. In that unsafe condition, the pistol can be fired with the safety apparently engaged, and the pistol can fire when dropped on the back of its slide because the trigger bar is free to move. Does making the pistol DAO really fix that?Sorry to hear you have problems, but this is the reason I never sent my PT140 in. I just modified it by taking out the SA sear to make it DAO, no problems before and no problems after.
