Customer Reviews 19 Customer Reviews Average 4.4 out of 5 Clark G Ordered this weapon during the last snow storm, Buds managed to ship the weapon to my FFL, in super fast time, Buds is amazing, they really are, and FFLs like them as well, all around pleasure to deal with Buds. Now, as for the Taurus PT840;
First, this is my second Taurus, I realize Taurus are considered a mid grade firearm, but they've come a long way, the new modern Taurus. The PT840 was considerably larger than I imagined, it's a pretty good sized weapon, and I'm a big dude, with big hands, the firearm was large, it's not a little pistol. Secondly, the pistol game in a well made plastic standard pistol case, with keys to lock the pistol, and remove the grip inserts for different sizes, I decided on the smallest grip insert, as I have large hands, came with two mags, speed loader and instructions. Overall presentation was as nice as any other mass manufactured firearm. The pistol came with a lot of factory grease on it, I cleaned it with Hobbes and put a very small amount of oil on it. Went to the range the next day. The PT840 seem too run well, I had one stove pipe, tapped and racked and kept firing, Out of 100 fired only the one malfunction, and it was early on, so I wasn't to disappointed as a new weapon can act up till its broke in, so I was okay with it. The groups were tight, I was pleased with the accuracy, in fact impressed with it how well the weapon shot on point of aim, my groups were tight and I felt immediately confident with hitting the target.
The biggest complaint I have with the PT840 is how sloppy the magazine fits in the well, it rattles horribly, it's embarrassing how bad it rattles, I've never seen anything like it, it almost soured me on the pistol, but I've come to accept it. I got this weapon for under three-hundred bucks, so I couldn't pass it up, and I'm glad I didn't. I just don't understand how Taurus could engineer a weapon, and have the magazine be so sloppy in the well, perhaps that's the only way they could make the pistol work with the magazine, or vice versa, regardless its painfully annoying. nevertheless, I gave the PT840 four stars for its accuracy, it's size, it's price and how fast I received it from Buds, overall the pistol is worth what Buds sells it for. 2 months ago robert a This gun absorbs the recoil of a 40 cal better than any other I've ever had. Bud's price and service were great. 7 months ago Show More Reviews...
