    My Taurus TCP shoots well so far... about 70 rounds.

    Really liked the gun and recoil wasn't too bad.

    My main issue is it almost impossible to rack a round via pulling the slide back.

    Just loaded a few rounds and was able to load a round. There seems to be a feeding issue. The brass has a rub mark on the body of the brass casing.

    Must lock back slide, insert mag, and press mag release thus loading first round... which I can only describe as a kinda grinding process.

    Is this a typical issue and can it be fixed without sending away to Taurus?

    Yes, I can see them recalling the TCP. This issue is becoming a major problem and I know at least 10 people that are having the same issue. I just got mine back from Taurus. I forgot what the paper said but it is fixed now. Feeding bullets is a major problem with the TCP.

    I got the same problem with mine. I think the mag spring is too weak and the follower could use a higher pitch.

    What did you expect? It is a Taurus after all. :rofl:

    Do yourself a favor. Buy a real gun and dump the junk.
