Taurus Stainless 8 + 1 Round 45 ACP/4" Barrel/Gold Highlight
[1945049PRL ]
by Shawn S Date Added: Monday 19 April, 2010
I purchased this gun from buds gunshop in March of 2010 and buds was great they sent me info via email as to to status of my order as well as tracking information once it was shipped. I priced this gun at several local gun outlets all of which wanted about $100 more then what I paid at buds I'll be shopping with buds in the future. When I recieved the gun it was nice and clean and not a scratch on it and it is truely a great looking gun! Even the guy at work who is not that crazy about guns said if he was going to buy a gun he wanted it to look like this one! I took the gun apart and cleaned it before taking it to the range just so I know that it was in ship shape. After chambering the first round and pulling the triger nothing happened then when I pulled the trigger the second time the gun fired normally with no FTF or FTE's until the clip was empty. I loaded another clip and the same thing when I pulled the trigger the first time nothing then the second time normal function. I took it apart cleaned it again but still the same problem. I will admit I was very disappointed since the gun was brand new out of the box and didn't function properly. At first I thought maybe this gun has some kind of Califonia safety on it that requires you to pull the trigger trwice because other then that it did great(funny huh)! After reading the owners manual very carefully it informed me that the gun was indeed malfuntioning.
So I called Taurus and the costomer service rep was very nice and said that this problem was a new one for him and he had been there for 10 years and thought he had heard them all until he got my phone call. He had Fedex at my door to pick up the gun the very next day at no cost to me and over nighted the gun to Miami. So for now I'm going to rate this gun low on the bud scale, however I like the look feel and construction of this gun so I will write another review when I get it back from the factory and try it at the range again. I hope this was just a fluke and that Taurus does a good job on it because other then the trigger problem I really liked the gun.
