Taurus Stainless 8 + 1 Round 45 ACP/4" Barrel/Gold Highlight
[1945049PRL ]
by Brady B Date Added: Sunday 19 September, 2010
I have been an avid collector of handguns for about 4 years now, and have had 11 different ones, at one time or another. There have only been 2 that I have ever hated. This is one of them. I bought this gun on a whim, as a family member has one, and raved about it. To each their own!
As soon as I got this out of the box, I had problems. It was packed in about a pound of grease, and the takedown lever kept sticking, so I could not field strip it without a maximum of swearing. The magazines BOTH had bad springs, so that every time I tried to load more than 5 rds, they just collapsed loosely.
Ans this gun is heavy, with a grip a gorrila would struggle to get their hands around! I kept this gun long enough to put 250 rds through, to see if things improved. They didn't. So I traded it for a Glock, and was much better for it.
