The Model 845 was derived from the successful "Taurus OSS" pistol we designed for the U.S. Armed Forces, but adds an external hammer that has been requested by so many of our valued customers. "STRIKE TWO" CAPABILITY - The Taurus 800 Series is now ready with "Strike Two" capability. If you have had a hard primer and the gun misfires, the 800 Series senses this and automatically gives you instant "Strike Two" capability by resetting the trigger for automatic double action re-strike. No need to do anything else, simply pull the trigger. Research indicates a 93% or better chance the round will fire on re-strike. When it fires, the 800 will automatically revert to single action by itself. If it falls on a dead primer, simply manually recharge and keep going.

5.0 Rating "Great Pistol" - 9/21/2012
Reviewer: Kevin
I took this pistol to range right after I purchased it (kudos to CTD for quick shipping), never cleaned it, and put over a hundred rounds of BRV reloads through it and had no misfeeds or failures to fire. Taurus doesn't get the credit they deserve. I have owned one of their original Model 92s in 9mm with wood grips and it has functioned flawlessly since the mid '80s. Better than the Beretta!

2.0 Rating bad choice - 8/12/2011
Reviewer: clayton w
Bought this gun to replace one I really liked. This is a good looking gun, has some good features and some bad ones. The trigger is so stiff my hand shook to pull it. The magazine release button is so hard to push, it leaves cross hatching on my thumb. Sent it back to Tarus and they made the trigger pull better, but the mag release is still too hard...I'm 60 years old and not the hunk I once was, but given the chance I would pick some other brand.........

4.0 Rating Very good quality firearm - 2/20/2012
Reviewer: Cheaper Than Dirt Customer
My Taurus PT845 was purchased over six months ago (and as usual CTD had it delivered to my FFL dealer in less than a week). After I brought home, properly cleaned and oiled it, I immediately took it out for a test fire. I needed to adjust the hand grip (it came with three interchangeable sizes) to fit my long fingers and slender palm. Originally, the slide was a bit rough to pull back when loading the first round, but after being "broken in" a bit, that issue has resolved itself. The PT845 has a very nice trigger pull, is extremely accurate, and has very little recoil for its caliber. After more than 500 rounds, I have had only four to six jams, and these were simply due to using cheap ammo (Federal or Winchester). Everything else that I fed it worked flawlessly. The magazine release button is still a bit stiff, but I personally prefer it that way. I wear this firearm as a daily open carry weapon. It is comfortable, reliable, and easy to maintain. Aside from a 1911, I wouldn't choose any other .45 ACP to carry.
