Ordered this weapon during the last snow storm, Buds managed to ship the weapon to my FFL, in super fast time, Buds is amazing, they really are, and FFLs like them as well, all around pleasure to deal with Buds. Now, as for the Taurus PT840; First, this is my second Taurus, I realize Taurus are considered a mid grade firearm, but they've come a long way, the new modern Taurus. The PT840 was considerably larger than I imagined, it's a pretty good sized weapon, and I'm a big dude, with big hands, the firearm was large, it's not a little pistol. Secondly, the pistol game in a well made plastic standard pistol case, with keys to lock the pistol, and remove the grip inserts for different sizes, I decided on the smallest grip insert, as I have large hands, came with two mags, speed loader and instructions. Overall presentation was as nice as any other mass manufactured firearm. The pistol came with a lot of factory grease on it, I cleaned it with Hobbes and put a very small amount of oil on it. Went to the range the next day. The PT840 seem too run well, I had one stove pipe, tapped and racked and kept firing, Out of 100 fired only the one malfunction, and it was early on, so I wasn't to disappointed as a new weapon can act up till its broke in, so I was okay with it. The groups were tight, I was pleased with the accuracy, in fact impressed with it how well the weapon shot on point of aim, my groups were tight and I felt immediately confident with hitting the target. The biggest complaint I have with the PT840 is how sloppy the magazine fits in the well, it rattles horribly, it's embarrassing how bad it rattles, I've never seen anything like it, it almost soured me on the pistol, but I've come to accept it. I got this weapon for under three-hundred bucks, so I couldn't pass it up, and I'm glad I didn't. I just don't understand how Taurus could engineer a weapon, and have the magazine be so sloppy in the well, perhaps that's the only way they could make the pistol work with the magazine, or vice versa, regardless its painfully annoying. nevertheless, I gave the PT840 four stars for its accuracy, it's size, it's price and how fast I received it from Buds, overall the pistol is worth what Buds sells it for.

This gun absorbs the recoil of a 40 cal better than any other I've ever had. Bud's price and service were great.

This is a very good weapon at an affordable price. The only knock I have is that there wasn't a bore brush or cleaning brush included with the gun. Overall I am pleased with both Bud's Guns, the transfer dealer and the pistol. Now I need to put a thousand rounds through it and see how it handles after some use.

Buds was great, as always. Will do business with Buds again. On the other hand, the gun is a disaster. FTF with all brands of ammo I tried. Tula just didn't run in this gun, WWB had 1 FTF every 10 rounds, same with federal. I thought the issue could be in the magazine, but i also have a 24/7 G2, and it works great in that gun. I woud not use this for self defense at all. Sending to Taurus to see if they can make it work.

First the positive: This gun looks absolutely bad-ass. A little heavy, but very comfortable, and the weight helps absorb some of that .40 cal kick. Really sweet trigger, smooth as butter even in DA. Shoots anything you feed it with no jams, right out of box. And priced right, too--after getting the free NRA membership from Taurus (worth $35), the net cost to me was just over $300. Now the negative: After the first couple hundred rounds, it developed an issue where the slide would occasionally lock open with rounds still in the mag--not so cool in a self-defense situation (saw another review under the stainless model from a buyer who had the same problem). Also, out of box, it was consistently shooting low. I initially thought it was my own inexperience as a new shooter, but could not correct the problem after shooting 400-500 rounds. Sent it back to Taurus because of this and the slide lock issue. They confirmed the front sight was high and replaced it, fixed the slide stop, and sent it back in a couple weeks. Excellent service except for one detail--Taurus would not pay for shipping as they had in the past. I was told this was a "courtesy" they used to provide but no longer do, and therefore had to foot the bill for shipping myself. If it were not for this, I would have given Taurus an A . And this is the main reason this review is 4 stars instead of 5--because Taurus does not stand behind their product 100% like they used to.

Budsgunshop.com is the best. I didn't believe the discount on all this brand new pistols until I received my PT 840 in the box in 100% brand new condition. I can't wait until I purchase another gun from Buds. Thanks
