It's a Taurus firearm, what else would you expect? The slide to frame fit is so sloppy that the striker disengages and fires. "At least it didn't go full auto though"

The comments mention a posting on The Firearm Blog about it. They were issued to Brazilian Police Academy students. Damn things would go off in the holsters as they were running.

Here's the longer version of the video. The demonstrator puts on the safety and it still goes off when he shakes it. Since the safety locks the slide he needs to rack to eject the spent brass after each shot.

Load that sucker up with a full mag, strap it in one of those hardware store paint shakers and see what happens.

I see a lot of people down on Taurus from a state where you cant even buy them in. Do you guys even have any experience with them or just talking shit because they are a cheaper brand? In the comments section of the video several people said that this was a recall issue a few years ago in the 1911 type that they made. I have never had any issues with my two Taurus pistols. My 9 mil PT99AF I've had for 29 years, my other one which is my EDC is a PT145 and is very tight, very accurate and very reliable.

Most of the people I've run into that talk about how bad Taurus products are, have never owned one, much less shot one. But...they "read it on the Internet". These same folks usually quote Snopes and Wikipedia as their best sources for information, too. The same jamokes that "only drink Miller Light" but have no clue when the bartender pours them a Bud light and tells them it's Miller.

Not sure who you're talking about, but I can get any commonly available Taurus product in a week or so, tops. I don't care about MA bullshit.

No, we talk shit about them because they are shit, or at least their quality control is absolute shit. They actually have some good concepts and designs, just poor execution and poor
service.

I fired a Taurus 1911 a few weeks ago and it didn't blow up in my hand. It wasn't completely horrendous. Trigger was actually OK. The sights on the gun were like a weird ripoff of novak sights, though, I found that kinda hilarious. Then again that gun had a very low round count. I can see why people got sucked into buying them. There was another member here who got so pissed at his he crushed it and burned it in a woodstove, because of the amount of times and ways his gun broke, and how many times it malfunctioned.

I almost bought that little doublestack that Taurus had made a long time ago to compete with the G26. I had the guys at the shop show me the takedown and nobody could get the gun back together after that. I think they fixed it the next day but I lost interest in the thing. Same shop on a different occasion had a PT92 that I almost bought, but it was a consigned gun and the price was too high for what it was.

Life is too short to buy Tauruses, frankly. The taurus fan club meme is just like the Para Ord apologists club. There are always going to be a few guns that aren't junk, that disprove the rule... but broken clocks are right twice a day, too. Your mileage may vary. I just don't see any point to this brand when a skinflint can buy a Ruger product for a little more and be a lot better off, generally speaking. Any gun that Taurus makes, Ruger has something that is marginally more expensive and probably built a lot better.
