I've owned two Taurus revolvers and both went south. I sent one in to Taurus and it came back in worse condition.
A warranty is only as good as the service behind it.
If you could have seen my Tracker when it came back from Taurus. My wife received it when I was at work. She didn't tell me on the phone that it came in. The condition was so bad she was afraid it would ruin my day. She was right. Covered in dirty grease with tool marks
. Like someone threw it in the monkey cage at the zoo. If I ever do come into a Taurus again, and there is a problem, it will never get sent off to those baboons in Florida.
