Taurus 905B2 M905 5RD 9mm 2"
by Donald E Date Added: Saturday 29 October, 2011
Just an update on the previous post. After a three week wait to get my brand new gun back from Taurus repairs, it still shoots paper plate size groups at 20 feet, although they did manage to figure out how to get the firing pin to hit the center of the primer. Now for the fun part. After putting half a box of cartridges through it, the cylinder fell off!!!

I'm not kidding. I pushed the release button and the censored cylinder fell right off onto the ground!!! While it's possible to put it back on, it doesn't appear to be possible to make it stay on. I'm guessing it's part of the other negative reviews where folks are having trouble getting the cylinder to lock in place. When it comes loose, you have to push on the front of it to get it to slide back where it's supposed to be. Whatever. Any way you slice it, cylinders SHOULD NOT fall off during normal use!!!

I was looking forward to upgrading my previous post with more stars after repair work was completed, but that's not going to happen. There's no excuse for a gun not working perfectly out of the box. There's ABSOLUTELY NO excuse for it not being better than perfect when Taurus has had a fair chance to make it right.

This ought to be a good gun, but it obviously is not. Quality control at Taurus is inexcusably pathetic, and the promised warranty work is worse. Until Taurus gets it's manufacturing ducks in a row on this gun, I'd have to recommend avoiding this one in the strongest possible terms.
