    For sale: Taurus 856, blued, basic grip. Maybe 200 rounds thru it. Six shot, 2" barrel, 38 spl/+p/357mag. Includes 200 rounds of fmj/lead/hp .38 in plastic cases.

    Caveat: this gun has... isssues. Sent it back to Taurus once already because it was jamming (so much for "get a revolver, they never jam!). Got it back, worked ok for a while, now it's having issues again. I'm just sick of dealing with it. Taurus has a lifetime guarantee that covers all owners of the gun. They will pay to have it shipped back for service, and to return it. I figured I'd try offering it up here for someone who won't mind going thru the process. Need to get my wife a new carry gun pronto, and I need to sell this one to do so.

    Asking $200 including ammo, new ones sell for around $350

    I'd like to take a look at it if you ever make it to the Everett area.

    Call back and ask for Robert, He's the manager there, Tell him what has happened and tell him you would like to send it back for a replacement. He replaced my PT111. He even returned my call to verify it had shipped.

    Note: there is also a Robert that works in customer service, The other Robert is his manager.

    I have a Taurus 85 that started acting up last year. It turned out to be the ejector rod assembly was unscrewing enough to cause problems. I finally had to use lock-tite to keep it together. It was the part with the left handed threads on it.
    Perhaps if you would use a real computer you wouldn't have to apologize for not being able to do so many things on the internet!
