Picked up this tonight for $349.
You know when I saw that gun at the shot show 3 years ago I thought it had potential. I think the trigger could really be cleaned up.
Now go shoot the shit out of it.
there can never be enough in gun crew
My brother-in-law has a Taurus 24/7 and has never had any problems with it.
I've been eyeing a PT1911 for quite a while myself.
I took it apart to clean it and a little plastic piece popped off of the front, taking it back tomorrow and hopefully getting it fixed....pretty sure super glue would do the trick but i dont want to fuck it up on my own
thanks for your handgun purchase, now just fill out application 285-76 and submit document 8684-43 to our Gun Crew admission board and you will receive your approval or denial in 4-5 months.
a pistol shouldnt be held together with super glue I guess you get what you pay for...
its just the tip of a plastic piece, but thats why i am taking it to the dealer tomorrow to have them fix it.
what tip of what plastic piece?
That's the guide rod for your recoil spring. I wouldn't try to glue that. Take it back.
EDIT: Does your camera have a macro mode? If so, that would make your closeup pictures much more clear.
Forgot the license fee.
Yeah your guide rod is uncaptured now. I run uncapturered guide rods in my gunes but they were made as uncaptured not that they decided to uncapture themselves (does that make sense).
Gun will still function, but your going to have a bitch of a time putting the recoil spring back on next time you field strip the gun. This is normal all of us the first time dealing with an uncaptured rod struggle with it. After you do it a few times it's easy.
pictures taken with iphone so that i could post them fast.
but i should still take it back to be fixed/replaced right? How much is that gonna cost me?
If you just bought it, it should be under warranty and not cost you anything.
ok cool, i thought that since i caused it then it might not be fixed under warranty....is that something they will fix there or ship it back to the manufacturer to fix?
Yeah, but you caused it by using the gun for its intended purpose. That's their fault (unless you were doing something really odd with the gun.) I have no idea what they'll do to fix it, I'd guess it has to go back, unless Taurus sends you a new rod.
Should be free. I would call Taurus first thing in the morning. They will most likely put one in the mail to you that day on their dime.
I would also go to the gun store you bought it from. They may have a replacement on hand, or pull one from another gun. They will then call taurus to get another one. The gun store may also just tell you to call tarus.
If your lucky you'll get one from both the gun store and taurus. Then you have a spare. Also don't throw the one you have away. Round off the broken tip with a file and you got yourself an uncaptured rod.
Also do not admit to breaking it even if you did. Just say I was field stripping the gun and it just broke off.
ok awesome, ill run back by there in the morning...thanks for all the replies
You are probably going to have to contact the manufacturer, most dealers aren't going to do any repairs or have replacement parts like that. Congrats on the purchase.
I'd say"should have bought a Glock" but the same thing happened to my G27.
Look at wolff guidesprings (online)
it sounds like the flat tip of the guide rod has broken off. if that's the case then taurus would probably just mail you a new one.
