Taurus PT-145 failure to fire
Had/have a Taurus PT-145. Wanted a sub-compact .45acp polymer pistol with at least 10 rounds. It's 10+1 and has a great grip and feel. The major down fall is that the first new one I got didn't have a strong enough spring on the firing pin or spring on the striker. Even though it has double strike capability, i could pull the trigger on the same round 2 or 3 times before it would go off and sometimes not at all. So, at this point i sold the gun. I reported the problem and could have sent it back to the factory but i was too pissed at the time. Well, i decided to try another one. This PT-145 has a super strong firing pin striker, as it leaves a vertical gouge in the primer of the spent cases as they are ejected, now i wonder how long it will be until the tip of the firing pin breaks. Hope it doesn't. Has anyone had a similar issue like this? I use this pistol for carry conceal at least until Springfield Armory comes out with an XD Sub-Compact .45 acp.
