I sent back my Taurus PT145 for the repair or replacement recall about six weeks ago. Still waiting to hear if they will repair it or replace it. I read a few months ago that there was no repair option available at this time and they would simply replace it with a newer model. Has anyone else sent back their pistol and heard anything?

Good luck. I had a 24/7 PRO CDS in .40 that I sent in. Waited almost a year and a half for a new gun. That was back when they were just wrapping up the lawsuit though, so yours might not take so long. I opted for a PT111G2 in its place, as the 9mm was available before the .40 and i didnt want to wait any longer. My advice would be to utilize their online chat, and contact them every 3-4 weeks.I also requested and received a free magazine for my trouble.

Hah.  The suit's law firm (the people who actually profited from the whole mess) were telling members that Taurus was going to take 2-3 weeks to replace the sent-in guns.  That remains to be seen.

I have a PT145 in the hopper, myself.

When I read the title, I just assumed it was a blanket recall for all of their guns.

Good luck to all!  After waiting a year I received a Pt11g2 to replace a Pt11 Mil-pro and another 9 months (21 mo total) for a POS PT809 to replace a 27/7 OSS tactical.

They are not giving much of an option, A $200 G2, a discontinued 809 or whatever cash is left, up to $200 (which more likely than not will be about $100).

There is no fix for the class guns! 

What I'd like to know what will happen to the NOS guns yet to be sold? Still alot of em on GB.

Let the buyer beware!

Update Week 7

 

Contacted Taurus by “chat”.  After asking a few questions they asked me to fax claim form.  I told them that it was sent in the box with the firearm (one inside gun case and one in the box).  I gave them my claim number and claim ID number.  They said to contact the back in 72 hours.

 Finally heard back from Taurus.  They said they will soon be sending me a new replacement PT 111 G2 pistol.  I had a 45 cal and knew that they only now make a 9mm and 40 cal in the G2 but they now say they no longer make the 40 cal.  Also they said I can only get it in the flat dark earth/blue color.  I guess better that nothing.

Taurus has had my TCP 380 now for nine weeks, this is why I will never buy another Taurus product, junk guns and junk service.

Taurus has had some serious issues with their products lately. We have had a lot of complains in the store. 


Thank you

After three months I finally got my gun back, they replaced the ejector and gave me a new clip, I haven['t had a chance to shoot it so I have no idea if it works. Taurus customer service is horrible, they wont answer their phone and the chat option is so bad it's laughable, I started trolling their Facebook page and miraculously my gun was fixed and returned within days. No more Taurus for me.

The TCPs were hit or miss. I found that the black SS ones are pretty reliable and the FS black one was returned before I even shot it.

Also most of the issues are usually solved on You Tube but here's a hint if you watched "Shooting The Bull". Most TCPs and some LCPs will not chamber the last round if it's an XTP. The first round loaded in my mags in them are HS so they are the last round shot if you shoot all 7.

 

I have run hundreds of assorted rounds through both guns and the only thing I noticed was the XTP issue. That's was a problem that wasn't addressed on "Shooting The Bull", he shot 5 rounds of each load so there was never a last round issue.

 

I have also heard that they had issues since the class action settlement.

 

I bought my TCPs a few years ago and both are E series black SS. I was apprehensive, especially with the first one which was the FS one. I put the mag in, pulled the slide back and it locked and then it flew forward and bit me. It went back to the gun store within an hour.

 

They exchanged it for a black SS one with two mags. I shot the daylights out of it and then bought another one for $180. I have one in both of my vehicles as a last resort in pocket holsters.

I have a LCP II and have had no problem with the XTP round. It has never failed to feed.  I can't comment about the earlier LCPs.

I'm a big fan of the XTP round and its variants (Critical Defense, Critical Duty). I use the Fiocchi XTP .380 round. The issues seem to be pretty specific to the point on the .380 round. You can Google it, some .380s no problems at all, some problems chambering the first round and a lot of small .380s getting the last round caught on the feed ramp. Glock 42s, LCPs, TCPs.

http://rugerpistolfo...cp-problem.html

 

The only thing that bothers me about this is there are many people who carry a mouse .380 for protection and have never ran more then 50 rounds of range ammo through it. I am not ripping on any gun or the XTP round but feel that people should practice with the gun they are going to use for SD WITH the ammo they are going to use. A lot of people don't.

 

I have run quite a lot of ammo through the TCPs. It took one time in one gun for that last round to hang on the ramp. Since then, new protocol, last round is a hydra-shok. No problems. It's a gun I will throw in my pocket (In a Uncle Mikes #2 pocket holster - $10 at Walmart) when wearing shorts in the summer.

 

My main carry is a 686 Plus 2.5" with either 125Gr XTPs in the winter or 110 Gr WW soft point in the summer in a IWB with no printing with a loose shirt. That round literally expands insanely or explodes and the recoil isn't horrible. I know a couple of cops who carry a 5 shot .357 snubby as a back up loaded with those rounds plus it's a pretty inexpensive round so lots of practice.

If you get hit by either, you're going to have a very bad day.

I must be one of the lucky ones.  My TCP has been a great little pocket pistol.  I don't shoot it a lot, but when I do it goes bang.  I can't ask for more than that.

They both have been fantastic BUT one XTP getting caught on the feed ramp on the last round is unacceptable. Since I prefer the Fiocchi XTPs and have fired at least 150 through each TCP the simple and cost effective solution was to just load the last round w/a HS. That XTP slammed into that ramp so hard you could see that it pushed the bullet back into the case. I Googled it and it seems to be a problem with some .380s and XTPs. The feed ramp is too steep and I'm not going to start bending my magazine lips. The HS was the solution.

One hiccup is one too many. 100% reliable or I go with something else. The Glock 42 seems to have the problem more often then the TCP.

I almost bought a TCP, but I'm glad I waited.  I got a Remington RM380 for $99.00 and it has been flawless straight out of the box.  I've been shooting it for 3 months and I haven't had a problem yet.    When its not at the range it is my bathroom gun.  

 

I have a Taurus Millennium G2 PT111 which has been problem-free.  I don't shoot it a lot, it mostly sits in a GHB, but I've had it for a while and when I've taken it to the range I haven't had any failures.

That's why I buy , Glock , S&W ,  Sig or Springfield . They all get recalled these days but those for me have gotten things done fast . If I wanted a different model gun I would have bought it instead of the one they recalled .

I have several Glock and Sigs. The Glock had a recall on the recoil springs and the exchange was painless. I called them and within a week it was all done. Never had a recall on a Sig. 

 

Basically those are the only handguns I have. 


Thank you
