Got one about 3 weeks ago. Finally took it to the downstairs range at the P.D. Fired that puppy with Speer Gold Dot 135 grain .38+P. Quite a bit more recoil than the 642. The thing is that after the third round the trigger got stuck to the rear. Had to play with it and the cylinder to move the trigger back to position and then fired the last two rounds. Maybe it's just me but I had an immediate loss of confidence in that weapon.
It was just out of the box. Since then I cleaned it and lubed it. Have not fired it since.
Has anyone else had similar problems or any problems at all with the 340PD?
My 642 has had several hundred rounds through it with no problems.
