Taurus 2405029 M405 40S 2 5RD Stainless
[2405029]
$305.00
by Joshua G Date Added: Sunday 24 March, 2013
The M405 is a good revolver. Ordered as a concealed carry revolver since I already have other firearms in .40 S&W. I was expecting something a little smaller, but the size is manageable. Note that it is built on the Tracker frame. The grip is the old style ribber grips that I like. The grip fits my hand well and its long enough to fill the entire hand, not just two fingers. The weight of the gun as well as the grips absorb most of the recoil.
I do have issues with the stellar clips that may result in the gun being sent back to Taurus for review. Out of the box none of the clips allow the cylinder to close or if you actually do get it closed it will not turn. This bothers me since it means trying to manually remove spent rounds with a finger or dowel which isn't very quick at all.
You do have the option to shoot without the clips and the revolver fires flawlessly. The double action trigger pull is a little heavy but manageable. Single action is very "snappy." A feather could set it off in single action.
A few things could have been done better. I think the pistol could have been capable of handling 6 rounds instead of 5. Would have been cool if they chambered it in a way that it would accept 10mm too. And the clips could have been made better or they could have figured out a method of ejecting without using clips.
Overall I would recommend this revolver.
