I’ve owned two other Taurus handguns before ordering the PT840: the PT 111 9mm and PT1911 in .45. I’ve had great success with those but small issues with the 840. The major thing was the fact that the slide would not “slingshot” closed. Read up on it and that was a common problem with these guns, which could also cause the slide to lock open while shooting with ammo still in the mag. So I used the warranty and Taurus had the gun fixed and back in my hands in a week. Taurus warranty service is awesome. The other issue is one that anybody who’s shot the gun knows of; it shoots at least 2 inches low. The front sight is huge, so no wonder. I’ve thought about replacing it or filing it down, but for now I just adjust on the fly. Not a big deal, but every other pistol I’ve shot was pretty close to dead on. As far as actual shooting, it’s fine. No problems so far after a couple hundred rounds. If you’re comparing it to a Glock or the new Wather PPQ (which I just bought, go read that review if you are thinking about getting the PPQ 9) then I guess I can only give it three stars. I’d rate it a 3.5 but we don’t have the ½ star option. I really like the reliability of the 840 but you have to shave a star or two for the issues. I trust it enough to carry as one of my CCWs, which is the main thing. And the trigger is really nice. Short reset. That’s worth a half star right there if I could do half’s…

This is an amazing firearm, im not sure why people say taurus is such a bad firearm company, but they clearly do not know or have never owned a taurus. Buds is top notch too when it comes to customer service and prices. The local gun shops around st louis wanted an average of $575.00 for this gun and i got it with shipping and insurance for $380.98 from buds gun shop. Gun was ordered tuesday and delivered friday. I had no problems with this firearm out of the box and it came packed very well from taurus. If any one has any doubts with buds, do not be afraid to use them, they will notify you on every little thing when it comes to your purchase. I received multiple updates from the time i ordered the firearm, to the day it was delivered. Very professional company and i will be doing much more business with them in the future

This was my first purchase of a firearm online. Actually, my first purchase of a firearm ever! The service was great. Buds really came through. I ordered on 01/29/12 and received the weapon on 02/3/12. I have currently put about 300 rounds through the firearm and I have not had any FTF's, FTE's, or stovepipes at all. The weapon has performed flawlessly. I have only shot FMJ's however. One box of Winchestor White Box, and 4 boxes of American Eagle. No problems what so ever with the weapon. I really enjoy the firearm and will always look to Taurus first, if I want to purchase another firearm.

Bud's price and service was great! When I received the gun had only fired 17 rounds through it before the trigger malfunctioned. (Would not engage unless held side way's) Taurus repaired and returned it right away. Just fired another 63 rounds through it and have the same trigger problem. Have retured it AGAIN to Taurus. When I get it back i'm going to trade it in on a Glock!

Buds did an amazing job getting this to me in two days. I ordered this on Saturday and had it by Monday. Wow. Having run an online business, I have to tip my hat to their service. I have made fourteen purchases this year from Bud's and I am happy to recommend them to anyone. I did order a pistol from a local dealer and it came in scratched and it was a sloppy operation compared to Buds. I won't make that mistake again. The pistol is beautiful and shoots like a dream. The case and accessories were very nice. Taurus is truly stepping up their game and the world is taking notice. Thanks to the entire team at Buds!
