Big: if you were in my corner of the world, we'd have one of the Smiths I know look at it after we took it out to the red rock desert...

I have the exact same gun with the exact same problem. Both magazines eject on every single shot, regardless of how I am holding the gun or how many rounds I load into the magazine.

I know Taurus has a good warranty. But I don't trust their CS after it took upwards of 8 months for them to send me replacement sights. I had to call them multiple times during that time.

I talked to a local gunsmith recently about the mags popping out issue. Well actually I talked to the Smith's wife. She's the front person for the store. Anyway she seems to think its probably a very simple and quick fix.

Personally I'm tempted to have a local fix it. Or maybe when I get to NC I'll just send it into Taurus to test their CS. I don't ever shoot the gun anyway.

It was time for a new signature. This is what you get.

JW, occasionally Customer Service of every company runs out of the parts with which to affect repairs. However, if you called, they should have given you either a reason or a timeline. I have not found their CS to be that slow with either mine or customer guns in about eight returns. They even fix damage caused by owner stupidity, not only manufacturing defects, which I think says a lot for the company.

If it's not a frequent shooter, JW, you should send it back and document it for us. My 10-day fix-and-return to Taurus was about two months ago so you should get the same level of service.

Too bad you don't have it any more. Did their warranty say no steel cased ammo?

It's no secret that I am not a taurus fan. I did take a PT 140 Millennium Pro in on trade at the gunshow last weekend. I was amazed to find out that not only does it have a lifetime warranty but as the now owner, the warranty is still valid. Then the battery died in the Crimson Trace. I called Crimson Trace, they are sending a new battery(free)! The fit and overall workmanship on this pistol is far better than the early Taurus revolvers that formed my first opinion of Taurus. We (wife, daughter & I)have decided to take it out and shoot it and no, not as the target.

I CC'd a model 85ss for 20 years . Great finish on it and the slickest trigger on ant snubby I have touched. We also have the C series TCP 380s and they have been very good. My wife has the new 9mm version Pt111G2. I get the chore of breaking it in and found zero issues with it. Accuracy is very good , great grip texture and the adjustable sets worked well . The mec-gar P226 18 round mag is reliable as a high cap back up.

I may be a little late in replying to this, but I had a similar problem with a PT-145. It turned out that the magazine catch was not properly seated, and was not making enough contact with the slot in the magazine to hold it.
I took a punch and tapped the little square surface on the outside of the grip frame, and it has worked fine ever since. I've now had the gun for 8 years, and no further trouble.
