I have a 3rd Generation PT-145 which has seen at least 800 rounds from 185 +P Gold Dots, Blazer Ammo, Taurus Hex as well as what I currently run which is Hornady 230 grain+P just to name a few. This guns has operated flawlessly since I have owned it however I was wondering at what point are you all changing the recoil spring on your 145's if ever.

I just noticed that if I hold the slide while bringing it back to close, the slide will not close all the way. If I pull it back and let if fly, it closes fine. I put a new spring assembly in, held the slide, brought it back to close and it did close all the way. Definately a little wear on the spring however I had no problem with it firing.

Mine has done that since day one. These guns like to be 'man-handled' and you have to release the slide with full force. Has not affected my gun though at all, even with light target loads.

I agree. My wife was having difficulty chambering rounds until I pointed this out to her. No problem since..... with the gun anyway! :p
