So I am beginning to think if maybe my Taurus 740 Slim is showing it's true colors. As most of you know. I have had my 740 Slim for a few months & it has been flawless for about 500 rounds. Well last trip to the range it failed to fire 3 or 4 times. The 2nd or 3rd trigger strikes did'nt help at all. All rounds had to be ejected and a new round into the chamber. Ok I thought maybe it just needs cleaning. So I took it down & cleaned the gun. I found little pieces of metal inside the frame. Some even sharp enough to make me notice or YELL! Metal in the finger hurt. Ok I took the gun out yesterday and fired about 50rds. I had the same problem with different ammo. The 2nd strike capability did'nt work. I had to Tap, Rack, Bang like any other semi auto. Oh yeah, this thing will not funtion with a full mag & one in the chamber. 6+1=7 not in this gun. Just had to rant. I am thinking of trading it off for a S&W 60 357 mag. What the Hell!
