TCP in the house.
Held the Ruger and the TCP and bought the Taurus. Nice trigger and functions at this point as it should. Will get a few mags through it and keep you posted. After looking them all over good, I still think many of the parts on the Keltec, Ruger and Taurus are coming from the same plant. Doesn't really matter, just saying.
Well after two mags it's not too good. I also shot some singles to test the mag catch. I expected as much, and will try different ammo and will polish all the parts if I have too. I tried Blazer and WWB just to break it in, as the ammo isn't cheap, and with the blazer it had a hard time chambering the round and had to assist it. I had a 4 failure to load and one FTF. So about 50% failure rate. I also have an issue with the mag catching the realease on the way in. So I depress the mag realease a little and it slides in. I can see where it is hanging up, but may wait for other issues before I send it in. The more I think about it, the worst it gets. Again, I kind of expected issues as I shot a Keltec that did the same for the first hundred rounds. On the bright side the mag stayed back on the empty mag every time and once when it shouldn't have. The slide seems a little gritty and will polish the feed ramp, but will try other types of ammo before I do too much. Like my P22 a little love may go along way.
sorry to hear the trouble. I was curious about the TCP because I just held one in the local shop. seems like the mag catch is "MIM" (powdered metal formed into a part). I've come across more than one report of mag catches snapping in half. hmmm, i guess ruger will win this round despite the reversible mag catch- funny, the part that was the biggest selling point for a south paw like me is the most problematic part
I'd go with the Ruger, but now that I have it all polished up,perhaps all will be well. I wish they'd remove the fact it's made in the US, I'd rather have the chinese build it. Seriously, the marks on the hammer and feed ramp and the fact I have to finish this pistol is not a selling point.
Checked out a TCP at a gunshop today. Was impressed with it. Felt good in the hand (very similar feel to my 'Slim', though a bit smaller) and the finish was better than I expected.
I've been looking for a smaller carry handgun for summer, I think I might have found it. Will have to look into it some more.
Marko, have you shot it anymore? I have one on order and I'm curious if I need to just pick up the ruger. TIA
