    Taurus UL-85 Stuck Trigger

    Got a stuck trigger today at the range on my BUG a Taurus UL-85 Ultra Lite.

    I was firing 6mo old carry ammo. on the first 5 shot cylinder 38spc+P Hornady Critical Defense 110 grn, on rounds 3 , 4 and 5 firing double action the trigger would not reset. It was stuck all the way rearward. Had to fiddle with it to reset, I have ran well over three thousand rounds of various 38 standard press loads and +P loads with no ill effect.

    With that said time to trade in for a Smith I have had my eye on a M&P 360 for a few months now.

    Of course when I purchased the Taurus I did the standard Taurus take the side plate off and clean out the lock work job.

    Anyone have any ideas? Trade in for a Smith or ship it to Taurus?

    Check to see if a spring is broke or out of position before doing anything else.

    For a back up gun the 360 wouldn't be too bad, but I don't know if you would want to be putting "well over three thousand rounds" through it. As light as it is it would be a literal pain to shoot with full power .357 mag rounds. But that is the ONLY thing I find fault with, I love the sights and the feel of the gun. I would get it if they would make it with a steel frame.

    Let Taurus Fix it

    Taurus Firearms have a lifetime warranty even if you are not the original purchaser.

    I would not consider 3000 rounds to be excessive, there are threads where other firearms have broken at a far less round count. So, I do not think you have a lemon. Sometimes things break.

    I would suggest calling them and letting them fix it.

    Have you tried turning the integral lock on and then back off?
