Did you take out the firing pin when cleaning? Maybe the firing pin and channel are dirty preventing the firing pin to come out all the way.

Did you clean it real well? I'm not asking to pick on you or anything. But did you "degrease" it really well? Such as degreasing the firing pin channel? The packing "gunk" Taurus uses is very hard to clean off sometimes. If you haven't, try doing a hardcore degrease, re-lube, work the mechanics, hardcore degrease, re-lube, work the mechanics, use some snap caps to work the trigger and firing pin. You really just can't over clean a new Taurus.

Welcome from East Texas to the best gun forum on the internet.

+1 on cleaning the firing pin channel really good. There is a thread on detail stripping these in either the Milpro or 24/7 forums that will show you how to remove it and really clean down the channel.

Another question is what kind of ammo are you using. I got some TulAmmo that I would get duds in a lot.

Welcome to TA from Minnesota. You might have some gunk in the fireing pin channel and that can cause a double tap.

If the firing pin were to get stuck forward, due to packing grease of other debris, it could cause the double fire. If you are comfortable that you have cleaned the entire gun sufficiently then the gun needs to go back to Taurus...immediately! Call customer service and explain the situation to them and they will send you a shipping label to return it to them. I don't think you mentioned it, you did buy the gun new? I get the impression you did. Taurus will make the gun right, just work with them.

Welcome aboard from Florida the "GunShine" state. :icon_ lala:

State of over "1 MILLION 120 THOUSAND" Concealed Carry Licenses and counting!

I'll take the other side of the coin since it is going BANG.

Try different ammo, maybe you got a bad lot of ammo with hard or defective primers

Is the firing pin striking the primer? If you do not see a visable dent, paint a thin coat of whiteout on the primer and try it. The whiteout will crack very easy, and let you know if the pin is making contact at all. That can get you started.

I would be less concerned with the FTF than the double fire, although they could be two symptoms of the same problem. If you are sure you took it as far down as you are comfortable going, I would call Taurus and send it back to them for inspection/repair.
