Taurus 740SS PT740 Slim 6+1 40S&W 3.2"
by Arthur W Date Added: Saturday 21 May, 2011
I received this fast from Bud's. Shot 100 rounds through it yesterday with only one misfire, but I pulled the trigger again, and the round fired. Easy to break down, but you have to remember to push the lever down on both sides of the barrel, not just one side. It has a little kick, as you would expect from a small pistol shooting 40 cal rounds. The sights were a pain to adjust as it shot about 2 inches low at 7 yards. The instructions do not tell you which way to adjust, so here it is: if you want to raise the hit on the target, you must raise the rear sight by turning the screw counterclockwise(instructions leave that part out). It is not nearly as good a weapon as my S&W 45c, but then it is a lot cheaper, and smaller, so I think it will be a great concealed weapon with a lot of punch. I don't know if I was not holding the gun correctly, or the fact that I wore rubber gloves, but I got a blister on the right side of my trigger finger and I am right handed (I still haven't figured that one out). It is very difficult to get 6 rounds in the magazine--the last one is virtually impossible, so I ordered a Butler Creek Uplula magazine loader when I got home from shooting. Unfortunately, Bud's does not have the model for higher calibers(they have the one for 22-380), so I ordered it elsewhere. My local gun stores did not have it either, so they must be in short supply. Hope this helps.
