On 8-20-10 I received my new Taurus stainless PT 840 from Buds. Bud's gave very fast turn around time and I had the gun 2 days after ordering it on line.
The fit and finish on the gun look and feel really good. Saturday, I got a chance to fire it at the range. The gun is accurate. With both 15-round magazines however I had issues with, while cycling and having ammo still in the magazine, the slide would lock-back, as if the magazine was empty. I shot about 150 rounds and was disappointed. I took the gun home and cleaned it again (as I do with any new gun BEFORE I fire it the first time). Saturday, after my range trip I thought maybe I was bumpint the slide releases or something that caused this. The lock-back on magazines that still had rounds in them occurred 5 out of 10 rounds. I thought I 'd try some different ammo since I was shooting my reloads. So, Sunday morning I went to Walmart and bouth 50 rounds of factory Winchester 180 grain white box. I went to the range again about 1:45 p.m. on Sunday and proceeded to fire the 50 factory rounds. I had one more issue where the slide locked back when I still had ammo in the mag. But, then after that it totally cleared up. I then proceeded to go through the extra 150 rounds of my factory reloads, both 180 and 165 grain flat points and the gun had NO MORE issues. The gun was working perfectily now, so I decided to try rapid fire- from both separate magazines, and using a full 15-round count in each. No problems. I decided to try and limp wrist shooting and that sitll did not cause a problem. So, apparently the gun has such tight tolerances that after 200 rounds it finally got broken in. I am so glad I didn't give up quickly on this. I wanted to keep this gun. So, now it is a keeper and I am happy!
