Taurus Mod 82 hanging up.

Hey guys Look I got a mod 82 taurus 38 special from a local gun shop this passed week. gun is used and seem to be in good shape. after I got it home I took it and shot it. noticed on the forth round the hammer would no pull back seems to be binding some how. I opened the cly and closed it back and it went to working fine. After that I loaded it back up and shot all 6 rounds with out any trouble. Then loaded it back up again and it did it once again. Took the gun in the house cleaned it and looked at every thing I could with out taking it apart. Has anyone run in to this with the Taurus before.

Cowboy, did you clean the firearm thoroughly before you shot it? When my Mod 82 arrived it was filthy. I sprayed it down completely with brake cleaner then took it from there. You did mention cleaning, but after you had your issue. Also, not sure what ammo you were using but it sounded like a high primer also which could cause binding and keep cylinder from turning. I'd take it back out after you cleaned it and try again. Like I mentioned in another thread mine performed just fine. If you experience same problems I'd take back to shop where you purchased it and have them look it over.

I am going to take it apart tomorrow there is a side cover on the right side of the gun. And I am sure there is a way to get to all the moving parts from there. It hangs up even when empty. If I set here and work the hammer in and out on it time and time again it will hang. Not a lot but just kind of random and not in the same place every time. I am thinking it just need more cleaning. My gun was a mess when I got it here. 90 % of the blue gone dirty and the handles on it was rough looking. I think I need to clean it more and deeper then I did the first time.

I said I was going to take the Taurus apart and see what was going on with it. Well I found it. Wags was right It needed a good cleaning. If any of you buy one of the old police service model 82 Taurus first thing to do is taking it apart and clean it. Are take it to a gun smith and have them do it. here are some pic's of what mine looked like.

Wow! That is rough. Glad you got it worked out. It appears to be a simplified S&W action but it sure is nasty.

Yes it was I could not believe it when I got the side cover off. I cleaned on it for two hours this morning. then put it all back together and it seems to be fine now. and everything on it seems to work a lot smother.

The condition doesn't surprise me. During my time in Central and South America I saw a wide variety of firearms carried by military and law enforcement types, especially the latter. Nearly all were in some state of neglect. I once saw a mexican policeman carrying a rusty Colt Woodsman as his primary weapon, or the Nicaraguan with an even rougher S&W .44 Special Triple Lock. That one almost brought a tear to my eye. I'm glad you got it working.

Trooper I am with ya on the tear in the eye. It is sad that ppl will let a firearm get in this shape. I guess I take care of mine like it is one of my kids.
