Taurus
« on: February 08, 2017, 04:43:06 AM »
I have a Taurus revolver that seems to be well made over all. It's a snub nose & I've only shot about 120rds with it. Seems like a good gun but the screw for the thumb release backed out while shooting & I lost the slide & screw in the grass. I called Taurus about 3 months ago & they did say they will send replacements but was on back order. I have not received one or heard a word from them yet.  Maybe I'm just lost in the system but I'm not impressed with costumer service. I'll try again soon.

One drop of Loctite would have prevented it all. I made a perfectly good redneck solution from my saved nuts & bolts though. Works fine & Loctited.

I have had better luck with Taurus support,but your solution does not look bad.
EGUNPARTS is a fair place for parts also.

I've had no luck finding replacements but I'm calling Taurus again soon. I really do like the gun so this is the only problem to report. It's a good little shooter once you find where it's sights need to be. I carry it every day.

I found the perfect screw, bold & washer in my saved junk. This is why you save all those odd screws etc.

I agree,a big box of spare screws and springs kept me in business as a mid level gunsmith over the years.
