Hadn't even shot it but dry-firing with dummy round to break in trigger, the trigger broke (wouldn't fire single or double....went limp disconnected). Back to my dealer and Davidsons delivered the one I have now the next afternoon. That's customer service (!!!) and that is what many other people have been complaining about. If I had to ship back to Taurus at my expense, how long would I have to wait? I'll never know, hopefully!
It costs nothing to send it back to taurus for them to fix it... my ex brother inlaw broke my trigger assembly and it didnt cost me a dime to have it sent back and it shoots great in every way

I had to pay shipping on both my repairs, as have the two other guys who've had to use the warranty.

The best customer service is the one that you never have to use. Since my time on this forum it seems like Taurus CS and Kimber CS stays the busiest

Honestly, I would add another $50 to $100 and buy a much better gun.

Default Matter of Faith

Maybe it's a matter of "faith" among Taurus owners, do you "believe" or not. Guess I'm a "doubting Thomas" or perhaps an "agnostic"? Don't think the Lord cares if my gun breaks or not, so don't bother mentioning that in my prayers.

I would either save another hundred bucks and buy a more reputable gun, or buy a good pre-owned gun.
Only Taurus made gun I ever bought was a Raging Bull 44 mag...never even got to shoot it. The cylinder would not spin properly, sometimes it would rotate to the next, others it wouldn't. Not that it mattered though, the cylinder wouldn't even close when you put rounds into it. The guy at the store was awesome, he saw the problem and knew it had not been fired...I had purchased it not two hours before, he took it back and said he would deal with Taurus...I ended up with store credit, which I used toward a Sig.
My Father in Law owns several Taurus pistols. One of his two TCP .380's broke during it's first mag, trigger would not work at all, just went limp. The other had been perfectly fine. He has a Millennium .45 which feels good and is pretty accurate, but does good to make it two mags without jamming.
I'm just not sold on the lifetime warranty...your lifetime could end up a lot shorter if your gun breaks when you call on it to save your life.

The only Taurus I have is a PT-22 that I traded a load of gravel for - - - NIB nice to train with and has never had a problem.

Gets the intimidation factor out of small women thus allowing them to get the basics down, improve and move up to something better.

It came with 2 mags, holster, plastic case, gold inlays, custom rosewood grips. Marked $218.00 Customer needed a load of engineering fill ( $180.00 delivered ) and we made the trade.

For what I use it for it is great!

In my opinion, Taurus pistols are bought by people who are strapped for cash and can't afford a better quality gun. I've had no problems with their revolvers over the years but their semi-autos are hit and miss as far as quality control goes. - I've owned numerous Taurus pistols in all calibers and never had one that didn't have problems so I gave up on them years ago. I also work in a LGS and invariably the complaints we have center mostly on Taurus and they are the ones most often returned for warranty repairs for reliability issues.
