Taurus 840B-15 40S 15RD Blued
by Joshua M Date Added: Tuesday 07 June, 2011
Good gun for a great price. I will start this review like most others on this gun and say that it looked like a floor model/refurb out of the box. The top of the chamber was worn in like the slide had been racked numerous times, or shot more than once. The inside of the barrel looked rough and gritty even after a good cleaning. The initial cleaning took off the red paint that dots the "fire" indicators when the safety is down, and the red paint that coats the top of the extractor to indicate that a round is chambered. There is a small spot on the slide near the chamber where the finish is questionable. All in all, when the gun was intensively cleaned it looked good. The safety lever/decocker/slide stop were all easy to manipulate and felt positive. I concur with other reviews on this gun and say the mag release was a bit hard to depress. I put 150 rounds through the gun and with one mag it ran flawlessly. With the other mag it was hard to chamber the first round, there were many failures to feed, and the slide did not lock back once after the last round was fired. I havent looked into the issue so I am not sure whats wrong with it. The gun did not fit my hand perfectly which is subjective. The sights appear to be off a little as I shot consistently low through the 150 rounds. I am a righty so typically I shoot high and to the left if I am impatient. Once I get a hogue/pachmeyer grip/night sights (on target)/ and deal with the faulty mag this will be a good gun. I will say that this is a gun for certain people in certain situations. I had just enough money to buy this 40. caliber gun and wasnt interested in spending anymore. The gun wholly suits my needs and was mostly on par with my expectations (Don't expect to get Sig Sauer/HK quality for 352.00). (the service via Buds was GREAT!)
