Overall it looks pretty darn good. There's only one spot I'd consider a blemish on the exterior, three small scratches on the left side of the slide just forward of the Taurus logo. There are a couple of rough spots inside but it doesn't appear they'll affect the operation of the pistol. It came with 2 17 round magazines and these both seem to have the same issue. Once I get 8 or so rounds in there's a rattle, almost like one of the bullets is loose in the stack. I seem to remember reading something about that on one of the boards, I'll have to take a look. I forgot exactly how tight a pistol can be, it took a real effort to push the slide release down the first couple of times. Range report and pics as soon as I get the chance to put some rounds through it.
