Default Bought a bag-o-gun

Bought a Taurus 24/7. The slide was disassembled. A couple of the springs were missing so I got it for $50. I cerakoted the slide and have been looking for parts. Called Taurus and they won't sell me the springs I need. Any options other than sending it to Taurus?

Check with Wolff Springs. They may have what you need.

Check with Brownell's too. They carry a LOT of gun parts.

I would LOVE to buy a "Bag-O-Gun". Somehow, the opportunity has never come up. I know a guy who got a Springfield 1911 in very similar shape, and did just what you did, OP. I shot it, it's actually a very nice gun, compared to what he paid for it. I think he said he's got about 250-300 in it, and that included some extra nice Wilson Combat parts that it probably didn't technically need.

One more reason not to love Taurus. Maybe you should assemble it without the parts and send it in for repair under their warranty. You might ,maybe, possibly get it back functioning after a few tries and then maybe not.

Yeah, what is their warranty, and why won't they sell you parts?

It has been a long time since he bought the bag o' gun. By now, he has either completed it or junked it.

It's a lifetime warranty. Contact their service department and see what they can do.

The lifetime warranty is good even if you bought it used. Being a taurus, it could have come from the factory in that condition.
