More about Taurus 380
Firstly I hoped Taurus representatives were being honest, and I wanted to give the pistol a fair shake. If it proved reliable, it would be a welcome addition to the growing class of subcompact handguns for self-defense.
In addition my gun has not been reliable – even after a trip back to the factory for a rework. Reading a number of Taurus-friendly websites, I’ve seen many others have had problems with the Spectrum as well.
Also in this shooting review, I will detail my problems with the pistol. In all fairness, there are a number of things I really like about this pistol. I cover those as well.
In addition repairs and testing are performed, this page will be updated to show the most current information. Also your experiences with this gun are welcome in the comments section below.
