strikes, barely indenting the primers, with many misfires. Sometimes even a second whack at that same primer doesn't detonate it. Taurus has gone too far in the attempt to have a lighter DAO trigger pull. Sights and pointability are excellent, tho. All that's really needed is slightly stiffer striker-spring. Or so my friend says. Very lw, at about 22 ozs, right at 6" of OAL, double stack, it's no pocket gun, because of the full length butt. It was fairly easy to toss up soda cans and hit them in the air with it, Frank says.
