sadPanda,
Not a problem unless it is a Colt Python or one of several vintage DA Colts that must lock up like welded to the frame. Perfectly normal in S&W or a Taurus. Out of timing is another matter, as stated above. A little blowback can be felt sometimes when initially firing an over oiled revolver, but that goes away quickly and is hot liquid not particles.

Id recommend rehoming it, get a ruger or s&w, (ruger super redhawk is a great choice)

Just send it back. If you purchased the gun with a credit card call the consumer protection number on your credit card. You might not be able to make taurus fix your gun but your credit card company can get it fixed or get a refund. Don't delay in calling the credit card company. You only have a certain amount of time to dispute a purchase.

Stop shooting it. If it is out of time, you will have tremendous pressure spikes. I've dealt with Taurus customer service before and they have always been good.

This may also damage the forcing cone, especially with a .44 Mag. Taurus has a no questions asked, lifetime warranty...have them make it factory new.
