I'm getting really excited for this march with the muskets now! I wish I could be there to see it in person instead of on the news and online, but I'll be out of the country that whole week.

Mostly people on the Taurus forums. A couple people said that they had the extractor replaced only to have the new ones break again. Maybe it's more of an isolated issue than I thought. People with...

That's a fair statement, lol. I at least like to try doing things on my own first, though. There's something about having a firearm that you've worked on yourself as opposed to something you've paid...

I was considering something like that!

I guess in fairness, Bill was probably referring to doing something by hand in particular.

I have one that I like very much. My only complaints are that it is losing it's finish on the slide and (more importantly) it has a slight feeding issue on occasion. I am in the process of replacing...

Thank you guys, I often forget that Taurus has a lifetime warranty I can take advantage of! I will definitely mention it to them and see what can be done.

I wanted to have a small radius or square bottom on the fps. This was JBM's original design and I've have heard a lot of reviews about it increasing reliability and reducing muzzle flip.
