But Taurus doesn't expect its customers to spend 80% of the gun value in modifications before it can be used!
Really? $462? Why not $288 or $523?
If Colts require $462 to get them to work then someone has paid $2,310 to get his to go bang because all four of mine ran just fine "out of the box." I find the statement "...need an average of $462 of work out of the box before anyone can use it?"
on par with "Glock Perfection"
. Both statements ring like false coins on a marble counter.
I am not bashing Taurus, just relating what seams to be a daily posting of their dirty laundry. Of ALL
the major marks discussed here on the FTF, Taurus issues are hands down, the most frequently presented.

Yes it does, and makes me think "limp wristing"
is your problem.
Does your grip look like this?
This grip is called "Tea Cupping"
and offers no support to your strong side hand. The muzzle flips with no support and the gun scrubs energy that should be used to properly cycle the action.
Changing your grip to this;
will provide a far more stable gun and allow the action to cycle properly.
Here are examples of poor grip techniques;
The mortal sin of tea cupping.
And the infamous "Dirty Harry" grip.
Both the above grips are referred to as movie
or Hollywood grips
and only work on the silver screen.
I hope this helps. Should you want more detailed information I'd be glad to explain what works for me.
