    taurus 145 polymer pistol

    I have heard good and bad things about this gun. Do the new pro series hold up or do they still have frame cracking issues? What about reliability and accuracy?

    Here we go again, not to be discouraging but it seems every post on Taurus starts this way. Are they any good, are the dependable, are they jam-o-matics? You just don't see these posts about tier one gun makers and there is a reason.

    Sorry about the short rant, there have been quite a few of these posts lately

    By the way, welcome! you will find some great information here

    I owned a PT145. I did a lot of research into the frame cracking issue and from what I could dig up it seemed to be cleared up with the latest generation. On the flip side the last generation seems to be plagued by magazine issues.

    My PT145 never would feed from the magazine correctly. I would recommend steering clear of it and start looking for something else.

    I bought one earlier this year. I couldn't shoot it well. I think it was all me, but I wasn't happy. It would occasionally lock the slide back when it wasn't empty. I traded it in.

    Taurus seems to have resolved the frame-cracking problem in the latest generation. But having said that.....I recently got rid of my PT145. It's a looooonnng story that I won't repeat here, but it wouldn't feed with the mags that came with it. So I bought new factory mags and the followers were totally different and they allowed it to feed "okay," but not reliably enough for a carry weapon. Then I had a TCP738 where the trigger mechanism broke within the first two mags fired. They're both now "formerly owned" guns.

    If the PT145 appeals to you, I would strongly recommend that you look at either an S&W M&P 45 Compact or a Glock.
