Taurus 24/7-40SSP15 40S PRO STAINLESS
[24740SSP15]
$300.00
by Zachary S Date Added: Tuesday 22 February, 2011
This is the first gun I have bought on my own and while I have experience with guns, I was very excited to pick this firearm up from my FFL. I Picked it up on a Friday and fired it that Sunday with no issues except a few stovepipes and a two feed issues with Magtech ammo. When I brought the gun home I found two alarming issues. The first is that the metal inside of the slide between the barrel cutout and the slide spring cutout is extremely thin and was both chipped and bent. Also, be sure to check around the striker mechanism because Taurus slathers it in a ton of gun grease. Once I removed that I found many many depressions and what looks like scratches inside the slide. These were not put there by myself or a factory worker, it must have been a problem with the casting. Make sure you check this at your FFL and be prepared to remove the grease on the spot because if you take the gun home, you will have to deal directly with Taurus. I have spoken with Taurus and while they are friendly and eager to help it seems that I am going to be stuck for up to two months without my firearm. Quality control seems to be the repeating issue that people have with Taurus, and now I know why. The exterior of the gun is very nice, all of the controls are placed in easy to access areas and the grip feels amazing in my hand. Just make sure you dont sign for your Firearm before you inspect it thoroughly inside and out. Buds service has been good throughout this situation and while they cant accept a return, I understand their logic. As a final note, I was stuck between this gun, and XD40 and a PX4 in the same caliber. If I had it to do over again, I would not chose the Taurus even at such a steep discount.
