I have cleaned it :" Throughly" and tightened the extracter , Still some play,
Can see the cylinder move and space open up at Crane seem.. The 'Pin' that holds the crane
in place has VERY weak tension, Can it get dirty inside ???
Really disapointed, Liked the gun, was shooting good, but noticed last 50 or so rounds had
some flyers, ( Thought it was me and the 210 Gr bullets ) wonder if it is the lose crane.
Thanks for all the suggestions, I will be calling Taurus , just hate to send it back and wait for ever. wanted to shot it some more before the weather gets to hot here in Florida.
???, my Charter 357 BulldogTracker ( also 24 oz ) has held up better than the Taurus...
Pulled the gun out to write down what I was going talk to Taurus about.
Crane is tighter, ?????, still some looseness when you wiggle the cylinder, but not like before.
When I cleaned it ,a tried to get some lube ( rem oil ) into the 'pin'.
Today it seems to extend farther up and have more tension ( still needs more spring in my opinion)
I'm thinking it was cruded up a little and the oil freed it up...( the previous owner was shoothing lead, don't know if it made a difference...
But, 'MO" the tapered pin latch leaves a lot to be desired on a magnum revolver..
Might really check well around and under ejector. I shot a box of solid lead through my Tracker and thought I had it cleaned, but suddenly could not get the cylinder back out to load it. Took it to my local gun guy and he ended up finding a good sized chunk of lead under the extractor and part way down into the ejector pin area. Had it wedged good, I did!!!! He thought it was pretty funny with the crack about getting old and blind. The gun has worked fine since and is a tack driver with 125-135gr HPs. Pretty good with WWB too. I've shot the 158 gr and they don't seem to be quite as tight grouping, but could be me. Mines the 4" if that makes and difference. It is the most accurate and fun .357 I've ever owned.
I think you'll love yours when you get it working right. Might stick to jacketed ammo, though.
Mine is blued. The pin spring isn't very stiff. My gun only has maybe a box or two of rounds through it so the pin notch in the frame still looks new except for the drag line worn in the blueing by the spring-loaded locking pin.
Opening an older thread but I bought a 627 Titanium Tracker about 10 days ago and noticed this morning that it has the front latch (spring loaded plunger in the crane) but there is not recess in the frame for the latch to drop into unlike the Taurus 94 I have. Is this a difference in the titanium models if so why have the front latch plunger, or is this something the factory forgot to machine in. :<(
Well I contacted Taurus Customer Service they said that a recess should be there but advised that it I am not having a problem it was up to me if I wanted to return it for repair. They also advised that they might not be able to repair the 627T since it is discontinued. The pistol is nice and tight now but has only had a total of about 250 rds through it. (previous owner and a few I fired last week) I am afraid that without the front lock functioning that the wear on the crane and the rate that the cylinder becomes loose will be significantly faster then the revolver would normally experiance. anyone have any thoughts?
