That's just a safety block that manufacturers put in the slide sent from the factory. Don't need it now. I used to own a 24/7 pro c that I really liked. Put 1000+ rnds through it with no problems. A lot of people hate on Taurus but in my experience, the 3 that I have owned have never had a problem.

That could be a couple different things. What kind of ammo where you using?

I haven't used Aguila, but I have used Brown Bear in some of my rifles and haven't had a problem with it. I would test out a box before you go buying it in bulk though just to make sure your pistol likes it (I don't see why it wouldn't though). On the jamming issue it could have been the ammo or a number of other things like the round not seated right in the magazine. I like to tap the back of the magazine to ensure proper seating, it's something we always did in the Marines so it's a habit. Did you clean your pistol good before you shot it?

No I didnt clean it I bought it and shot it .it is the first semi auto..I have owned sevearl revolvers ...the guy who sold it to me said that it was cause all the lube got hot and gummed up idk? I have heard sum ppl say brown bear is not accurate?

That will cause it to jam. Always clean before shooting is a good rule of thumb. It's pistol ammo that you are firing up to what 20 yards? It's accurate enough to get good groupings at that distance. I shot wolf ammo out of my AR (which a lot of people don't like it's accuracy and I had a couple of groups that were on top of each other. So it may not be as "consistent", but it should be just fine for range ammo.

That's what I am looking fire is range ammo ..so u think I should buy a box of brown bear and a box of wolf and see which proforms better
