    I had this problem with my model 65-2 smith and wesson. My problem turned out to be a loose main spring tension screw. It's located on the front strap of the grip frame. If I recall correctly, you should have some one piece rubber grips on your gun, am I correct? You'll want to find out if yours is equipped with this screw, and if so, get those grips off and make sure that thing's tight.

    If that isn't the issue, I would lay the blame on the mainspring being weakened, and would need to be replaced, which is also a very simple operation. It's a along the lines of "monkey see, monkey do"

    Is it brand new or used? And what ammo are you using? Are there any mods to it, such as a bobbed hammer?

    I have experienced it with Smith & Wessons. I have not experienced it
    with a Taurus since I wouldn't care to own another one.

    Keep your chin up, it's true that taurus can be hit or miss, but there is a lot of good guns that come out of their factories too.

    I had a rossi at one point, basically the same company, and never had trouble with it. Only reason I sold it was because I needed the money more than I needed the gun.
