Big, I have A PT-38 that the previous owner monkied with the safety and release springs, causing the gun to drop the magazine on the first three shots. I was the 2nd owner, but sent it to Taurus and they had it back to me in ten days all fixed, polished and working perfectly! If yours is new, it may have just been a "Friday gun" and needs to be returned. Follow Taurus online submission and they'll make it right fast.

Default Return for repair

Big: Taurus has the best( or next to the best, right three with Ruger) CS in the biz. When and if you call it in before they send it back, ask for Kimberly(the CS manager ) and tell her you are a Firearms Talk member, and we told you to ask for her and you heard our interview with her boss. You might get it back even Quicker.

Just one magazine does this? Or every magazine you have? I'd be sure it's actually the gun before sending it back.

I don't know but I'm thinking its the magazine also. I'm waiting until Monday to test it out one last time before I send it in to Taurus.

if you have multiple magazines and all of them are doing it, then you may have an issue with the pistol. if only one magazine is doing this, then it's quite possible you have a defective magazine. call Taurus and discuss the nature of the problem with them.

Axxe is correct. If it's just one mag., it's most probably some sort of structural issue with the mag. Itself,..look for bent feed lips( at the mouth of the mag were the rounds enter the chamber). If it's just one mag you will possibly notice a bent section...

Why wait till Monday, try wrestling out empty magazines now. If they drop out when shooting there's a good chance you can pull them loose from the mag release without pushing it. If they stay locked in place insert a full mag and see if you can pull it loose. Try this on all your mags.

Was it a full mag that dropped while shooting? Or did a partially loaded mag also drop? A full mag may need a good slap to fully lock in. If you download a round or two it locks easier. New mags are stiff and may need use/wear before they lock in when fully loaded. This is fairly common in a new gun.
