I have recently bought a Taurus pt640 pro, and I found metal shavings in my slide. The gun was brand new when I bought it, and as far as I know, I cleaned it well, but after 300 or so shots it still produces these shavings. Look for yourself here: youtu.be...

Sounds like bad engineering.

Would the bullets you are using cause it? Have you switched ammo to see if the set you got may be bad?

Switched brands of bullets?


*****EDIT*****

Just watched the video.... Looks like bad engineering. The metal on pull back is rubbing against metal.

I have heard about this with the 600 series taurus pistols before. If you contact them, they should take care of it for you. Their customer service is great.

Are the rails completely straight?

I have tryed a few diff brands, and I found that remington is the worst for the gun but still does well. It jammed once and that was the ammo I used. I have tryed brass, steel, and nickle. I know the slide is rubbing the rail because It is sharp and a clearly damaged. I just dont know why. The gun functions well.

They are great. They are going to take care of it free of charge including the free overnight shipping. I was very happy with customer service.

From what I can tell they are straight.

I'd look real hard to see if there are any hairline cracks in the slide, then.

Like I said, this problem is not uncommon with the 600 series. Taurus mass produces their guns, which means sometimes defects make it through. But they ALWAYS take care of the issues at no cost to the customer.

Lots of people have a grudge against taurus. Personally, I think the PT92 is one of the best guns ever made, even better than the Beretta 92 which it is modeled after.

Try switching from brass to nickel cased ammo. If the problem continues, send it back to the factory. If it stops, you might just need to have some polishing with a dremel done. I'd ask a gun smith before sending it back.

The pt 92 is my next gun. I like the pt640, it has an awesome trigger. I fired my friends s&w, the gun has no safety, and the trigger is too heavy to anticipate when It will finally release. Infact I cant find a reason I dont like my taurus besides this issue, and it has been taken care of in a way that retains me as a customer.

I just shipped it off. I think that the rail is catching the slide and taking metal off each time. I would rather they just fix it for free. I dont know enough to do anything with a dremel as far as firearms go.

The sooner this happens to all guns, the better.
Yeah, right, I get it, guns don't kill, people do, but it sure makes it a lot easier.

Crazy Yanks and some warped sense of entitlement. Do the world a favour....

Ahh yes, the obligatory "gun owners are crazy" post. Wouldnt be a firearms thread without one.

Do us a favor....

I would like to point out that there are a lot of crazy sick people, and perhaps One or Two of them own a gun. However to be so judgemental is a mental illness.

I do not know to much about weapons but I know they can get hot.
Maybe the heat is causing the metal to expand and rub. When its cool it does not rub because cold contracts.

It still makes shavings hot or cold. I cleaned it, then put it together, then took it apart after pulling the slide back a few times and there is new metal shavings. I just wonder why it continues, I would think that after giving it 100plus shots to break in, or stop working all together, It would rub away whatever is causing it.

Not to beat a dead horse, and its nice that people are trying to help, but it is nothing more than a design flaw.
