Hello. I’m wondering if anybody else is having problems with the safety catching on their Taurus G2C? I’ve owned mine for a little over a year or so and during the firing cycle when I’m pulling the trigger the safety on mine will click and engage by itself. It is now a strictly bedside only firearm. I know I’m gonna have to get it serviced but the reliability problem scares me so bad that I went out and bought a brand new carry gun that doesn’t have an external safety. Anybody dealing with anything like this on their Taurus? Thanks.
Don’t think I’d want a single shot bedside pistol any more than I’d want a single shot carry pistol.
I’m not familiar with the G2C so not sure if this is a known issue. Is this a new problem? If so have you changed your grip recently? Maybe your hand is coming in contact with the safety during recoil? You could try changing your grip or shooting offhand to see if that makes the issue go away.
Or it could be a worn or defective part allowing the safety to move. Though if that’s the case I think you would notice the safety being easier to activate and deactivate than it used to be.
The Taurus G2C is a striker fired semi automatic with re strike capability. It’s not my thumb riding up on the safety. At first I thought it was because I have big hands but I noticed during my dry fire training at home that the safety even engages on its own when I pull the trigger. Which is odd because I’ve never had a handgun do that before. I hear a slight click and then the safety goes up by itself. It’s pretty scary. It doesn’t happen all the time but occasionally it does.
I’m definitely going too have too get it serviced though in case I ever have to defend myself with it. If a gun is not reliable I’d be better off just using it as a club.
That was my first question, I’ve had that problem before.
Ive had 3 of the G2C pistols and never experienced that problem, will be picking up some more later…
Mine might be one of the exceptions that is flawed. The reviews for it have been really good for a budget pistol. But it could possibly be just a bad one out of the bunch. Everything else about it though has been great. It feeds flawlessly when I’m shooting it. I’ve never had one jam in it since I’ve owned it.
Perhaps dirt/grime stopping the safety from engaging or not engaging completely.
